Candy Bar Bouquet

My cute neighbors recently got married. I collected a good amount of donations from all the other neighbors to give the happy couple a gift. What I decided to give them was a candy bar bouquet filled with other good things like gift cards and cash.  It was so easy to make and my neighbors loved the gift!  This really would make a great wedding gift, teacher gift, birthday gift, or a gift for any other holiday too.

Teacher-Gift

Here is what you need to put this gift together:

  • vase or bucket
  • kabob sticks
  • tape
  • tissue paper
  • foam block
  • treats
  • gift cards
  • cash
  • ribbon
  • card

Wedding-Gift

First, take your foam block and put the tissue around it.  I tried to make it so that the tissue was taller in the back, shorter in the front.

Then, tape all your goodies onto sticks.  I used kabob sticks and some shorter caramel apple sticks.  It was nice to have 2 different heights to work with.  We also taped some candy as high as we could on the stick and some lower on the stick.  This helped give us a variety of height as well.

Candy Bar

Arrange all your goodies like a bouquet of flowers.  I started with the m&m’s in the middle and then added things behind them and in front of them.  I also tried to keep it symmetrical.  Finish it off with a ribbon around the vase and a card.

This bouquet contains $140 in gift cards and $80 in cash, plus the treats, but this would be so easy to make bigger or smaller.   Bigger – more candy, bigger vase, more gift cards, more money.  Smaller – less candy, smaller vase or bucket, less gift cards, less cash.  You can adjust this to any size that would work perfect for you and your budget.

    That’s a nice candy setup. I like how everything blends together. I have done something similar but never thought of using dollar bills, nicely done. If you want to see what I have been doing you can check out my website at Parapluseattle.com.
