Candy Bouquets

Last month, I saw great photos of cute candy bouquets on Fun Snacks 4 Kids. Then with the bake sale coming up, I decided to put some together to sell there since it is something I can put together ahead of time and isn’t perishable. I looked for the book that Rach mentions using, but Barnes & Noble didn’t have it and I didn’t have time to order it. So I just bought lots of glasses and sundae cups, a variety of candy and craft supplies (including a hot glue gun). Then several of us got together and put some bouquets together just using our own creativity. Unfortunately, I didn’t take photos of the individual bouquets, (I was so frazzled with everything that I wasn’t thinking ahead to a blog post. What was wrong with me??!) but I do have a few photos. In the photo above, Elisa made this first one and I made the other two quickly as demos right before I took everything to church to put them all together.
It’s hard to tell how cute they are with them all close together, but they really were! Before taking them to the bake sale, I wrapped them each in cellaphane and tied each with a ribbon. That made them extra special.
They were very popular at the bake sale. We made 23 of them and sold 22 (and gave the last one to the family who we were doing the bake sale for). I’m sure we’ll be doing more of those for parties and gifts, but next time bigger and better! Thanks to Elisa R., Denisse, Veronica, Elisa M., Alexander, Margarita and Jocelyn for putting them together with me. You guys were so fun and creative!
