Nope....nothing new, and nothing expected. It's purely an individual choice. I just happen to enjoy making things like this, so....I never gave out "favors" @ graduation parties (had 3) nor have I ever been to a party that did. Is this something new? I would never expect a favor....
Yup, this is HS graduation. And I love the cookie idea. I might even make those just to "put out" on the dessert table....thanks!Just wondering - how old are the kids? This could help us determine things that are more suitable and age appropriate. Teens finishing high school may guffaw at bubbles but the younger group would prob love them. Chocolate is always a hit.
My idea: Bake everyone their own cookie (a large round would do or if you can find a cookie cutter that looks like an award ribbon cut out, that'd so rock!) and pipe icing on it with their year to make it look like an award? You wrap them up in cellophane bags. Skittles, M&M's, jelly beans - any small candy - in small clear bags tied up with ribbon that have the year on the would be fun too.
FYI - when I graduated high school our class gift was a beer glass with the schools name and our year on it. Let me just say that some of the parents were not impressed! (encouraging drinking etc b/c we were not of age by the time we were graduating)
