Table Favor Ideas

A few months ago, I attended the California Dreamin' Writers' Conference. The picture on the left is historical romance author Sarah MacLean giving the keynote speech. 

During the conference, I participated in a Barbara Vey reader event. There were two authors at each table and we were asked to provide table favors for the readers who were sitting with us.

My favor was a metal tin that included my latest release, The Secret Marriage Pact, gold tipped pencils to inspire creative writing, a glittery clothespin to help the participants keep all those bookmarks organized, and a net bag of M&M's because you have to have chocolate. Below, is a picture of how my tin looked on the table.

Before the event began, I went around and photographed some of the other authors' table favors. Below are pictures to help inspire you. Enjoy!
