Candy Bouquet

Sorry to be a little quiet here on the blog lately.  We’ve got lots of party planning going on around our house.

Last week and this week have been “show week” at our house.  The two weeks the high school musical – this year Guys & Dolls – is performing.  Tessa is a cute little Hot Box Doll and the featured dancer.

I am busy helping pull together the details for the cast party Saturday night as well as some gifts for all the adults that help put the show together.

I counted up the other day how many high school productions my 3 “theater” kids have been in (I have 3 theater kids and one sports kid!) and it is about 30.  Not only is that a lot of performances but a lot of flower bouquets to present to the performer after the show.

In the past I have gotten a little tired of just bringing flowers, especially when it is a male performer.  Another idea I came up with was a candy bouquet.

I have put them together either in a vase/pot or just wrapped up in tissue like a flower bouquet would come.

I tape the candy bars onto the end of bamboo skewers and tie them together with some tissue and ribbon – the kids love it.

Here is a candy bouquet I put together for Tessa when she was performing in Willy Wonka.  This was an easy one to do as I used all kinds of Willy Wonka candy!  I just wrapped a box in some peppermint candy wrapping paper, put a piece of styrofoam in the inside and covered it with shredded paper.  Popped in the skewers with the candy attached and added a bow.  She loved it!

I’ll be back soon to share plans for the cast party I’m organizing as well as some fun cookie bouquets I am putting together – think dice, spades, hearts, diamonds etc…….

Luck be a Lady tonight!!!

    I need to see that cookie bouquet as soon as possible. Dice, spades, hearts and diamonds sounds like the perfect thing to take to the surprise birthday party I’m going to tomorrow night. It’s a casino night! Can I hire you to make me one too while you’re at it?

    What talented kids you have! Just like their Mom I can see. The candy bouquet is so adorable and I’m always looking for ideas on gifts to give other than flowers.
    I can’t wait to hear about your cast party!
