If you want people to be interested in and excited about the party, if you need them to loosen up and interact well with the other guests you cannot afford to omit giving away party favors for the occasion. These can be given out at specific times. They may be given each guest as he arrives. Then perhaps, just before dinner time, favors containing appetizers might be distributed. Before the start of the real party which is usually after dinner, favors like funny hats and masks, confetti and such like may be distributed to launch the evening of frolic.
