Celebrate 80th Birthday Party Favors

80th birthday party favors are a great way to thank your guests for attending this milestone celebration.  You may wonder if your 80th birthday party ideas should include favors.  

Are they really necessary?  Your guests are a very important part of your celebration.  What's a party if no one shows up?  Guests clear their busy schedules to attend and shop for the perfect gift for the Honoree.  So yes, they deserve a thank you gift letting them know how special they are.

The gifts do not have to be extravagant, just a small gift with a big thank you.  It really is the thought that counts.

Everyone loves candy and your honoree will love seeing candies that bring back sweet memories from the past.  Retro candy buffets are unique and easy party ideas that truly fit the theme.  Inspiring conversations will ensue as guests remember when. . .

Building a retro candy buffet is simple.  First, pick five to ten different candies to be in your buffet.  Include your honoree's favorites.  You may want to include Bit O Honey, Candy Cigarettes, Boston Baked Beans, Coconut Bars, M&M's, B B Bats, Candy Buttons, Mary Janes or Licorice Pipes.

Select clear containers to fill with candy.  Your containers should be various heights and sizes, some tall, some short, some round, and some square.  Filled with candy, this beautiful display will bring your 80th birthday party favors to life.  Remember to include scoops so your guests can serve themselves.  Have boxes, tins, or bags available for your guests to take their candies home.  A retro candy buffet will make your guests feel like kids again and allow them to leave with sweet memories.

The right combination of impressive dishes, colorful candy, and flowers are all essential to pulling off a memorable candy buffet.  This candy celebration includes personal photos to give special recognition to the Guest of Honor and stir up old memories.
