Candy Bouquet For Mother's Day
Okay, I know I'm a bit late in posting this. Mother's Day was a few weeks ago. However, we celebrate Mother's Day every year so this idea can still be used for next year and the years to come.
I did this candy bouquet for the sisters at church. My branch president insisted I get flowers. However, some sisters said that flowers won't last. They'll wilt even before they get home from church. They suggested chocolates instead. So, what to do? I decided to combine the two: flowers + candy. In my opinion, the money spent on this is more worth it than just buying flowers that will die.
My only regret in making this candy flower is not buying a better quality chocolate. Ideally, I would have gotten Ferrero Rocher but those are kinda expensive. If I was just making 6-12 flowers, I think I would have bought it but making about 30 candy flowers made me look for alternatives.
Anyway, basically all I used were satay sticks, green tape, ribbon, crepe paper and glass paper.
The first time I heard of candy bouquet was when I came across this book: How To Make Candy Bouquets For Fun & Profit. Of course my candy bouquets are not as professional looking as what is taught in the book. But if you are interested in learning how to make candy bouquets, this book is very helpful.
