My DIY Candy Bouquets For Kids Table

Ok, so the floral shop had these super cute candy bouquets made up for 75 freaking dollars a piece.and there is no way I am paying that much.

But, we are having a kids' table, and I wanted to put some on there, so for Christmas I made some little ones for the kids I nanny plus some of FH's little cousins. Then FH's aunt asked me to help her make one for her granddaughter for her dance recital, and am now making them for some friends for their kids for Easter.

I want HONEST opinions before I spend anymore time trying to do this on whether they look like crap or not, because if the suck I don't want SEERIZZY to make a post about how much they suck ;-)

The first one is of the little ones I made for xmas, they are the first ones I made so they are a little rough. The second two pictures are of the ones for the dance recital and has a tutu wrapped around it. I plan on putting them in a fall type basket about the size of the tutu one for our fall themed wedding.

    I think they are great. We thought about doing personalized gifts for the kids in a metal buckets and just have a candy buffet, but by doing it this way you won't have to worrky about them breaking the candy jars....Great Idea!

    I love them! They are so cute and I know the kids would think they are amazing. I am partial to the tutu though, would you have anything wrapped around the fall baskets? It also looks like the Christmas ones have colored cellophane inside the basket and I think that would help if you are using the fall baskets to make them look a little fancier.

    Great idea!

    @cavan, the tutu is for a dance recital... that one also has colored cellophane, but the picture didn't pick it up as much as the Christmas ones. At this moment I am hung on fall baskets as the base (nothing would be wrapped around them) but I also considered doing them the same way as the tutu ones with white tutus and tutus the same colors as the BM dresses OR a white tutus and some how making some decorated like a tux.

    Our wedding is very fall themed, and we are not very formal people.

    We are actually NOT doing individual ones for each kid, as we have about 75 kids coming. But we will be doing 4 or 5 large ones that will spread out in the middle of the kids table. Obviously they will probably be attacked pretty quickly, but I wanted something cute on there so that there can be pictures taken of the table before it gets ruined. There will be enough candy at the candy buffet that if they don't get what they want from the bouquets they can just go up and get what they want.

    This is exactly why we are paying some high school girls to come and supervise the kids table. Smiley smile Those poor souls.

    Well we only will have about 2 or 3 kids and no Kid table, so it would be cute to do individual ones. Smiley winking
