The capia is the popular favor in old school parties. From baby showers to baptisms to wedding and birthdays the capia is a favor that’s pinned on each guest as a memento of the party. It has a printed ribbon in the party colors with the name or occasion on one side and date on the other. It has a lace doily in the back. That’s as similar as they get. They can be big or small and have a cross or bible glued to it for baptisms to baby bottles and pacifiers for a baby shower and the theme of any birthday party or wedding. I made my own capias for the first time when I was getting married. I only got married about four years ago (this August) and I didn’t know what I was doing but I think they came out beautiful if I do say so myself. The thing I love about the capias is that it’s something that you pin (the host or bride/groom) to each guest so it gives you the opportunity to personally thank them for coming. I think they are cute even though they are a little more old school and not a lot of people use them for their parties anymore. But I am more of the traditional type. Here’s an example of a baby shower capia….
and you can be as creative as you’d like with these!! Mine was more simple…..
But you get the idea!
