The juggling act most prom planning committees have to perform don't always end with balancing the budget for the venue and the food and the prom favors and everything else-sometimes it even extends to thinking of ways to rid prom favors of possible unconstructive associations, like shot glass prom favors for instance.
The juggling act most prom planning committees have to perform don't always end with balancing the budget for the venue and the food and the prom favors and everything else-sometimes it even extends to thinking of ways to rid prom favors of possible unconstructive associations, like shot glass prom favors for instance. They're cheap, and given the right designs can even be alluring, but sometimes you simply can't get away with including it as a favor to underage prom-goers.

Glassware and Drink ware are Common Memorabilia Items

Glassware and drink ware like champagne flutes and shot glasses are among the most common types of memorabilia giveaways. So why not give away shot favors, right? They're classic glassware favors that engender the most important factors required in a favor: they're aesthetically pleasing, wonderful reminders of a plush event, and sufficiently symbolic of the particular occasion.

Glassware and other glass items are usually made into decorations and centerpieces because of their sleek forms and beautiful curves. This is also true for favors, even shot glass favors. Also, shot glasses are in fact great memorabilia to recall an elegant and beautiful evening by, even when they're not being used and are simply part of decorative furniture. Lastly, shot glasses, much like classic champagne flutes, don't aim to advertise alcoholic beverages to youngsters, but instead are mature glassware items that can appropriately symbolize the "coming of age" of the teens attending the prom.

Improvise

But still, a negative, swooning alcoholic image is associated with glasses simply because of what they are. And regardless of what prints or designs you try to slap on them to make them more visually appealing, they're instantly recognizable as drinking glasses. So if you really wish to give away these prom favors, you should be open to compromise.

Improvise in ways that would make the glass pass for a regular prom favor. For instance, use them to hold scented candles of different colors. You can even purchase scented gel and fill up the shot glasses with them and stick in some long-life wick so when they dry they become improvised scented candles laden on shot glasses. They then serve dual purposes: as candles and as good ol' shot glasses after the candles burn out. This way you are still able to give away shot glasses but they're less conspicuous and less prone to most derogatory associations.

Mix and Match

Another way to sort of cloak glass favors is to sneak them into favor sets. For instance you have enough of a budget to purchase and personalize prom favor kits, like a matching pen and memory book in a tote bag full of other trinkets, then you can add a glass to the set to at least somehow stick to the tradition of giving glassware prom favors.

Most of the time the glassware favor is a margarita glass or champagne flute, and most people won't have a problem with that. But when you substitute a shot-which is pretty much the same thing in that their purpose is to serve alcoholic drinks-somehow negative connotations are associated with it. Though you can't change preconceived notions, you can improvise to try and eliminate the stimulus that triggers them. That's how you get away with shot glass prom favors.
