My 3 Monsters: Candy Bouquet 2.0

Candy Bouquet 2.0

This revamp is a little more true to the inspiration photo the bride found, though I still don't like it as well as the first one she hated with the long pointy lollies. And that beautiful robin's egg blue ribbon I used looks really washed out in the photo.  Whatever. 

So, some pointers if you ever want to make an old fashioned candy bridal bouquet:
  • Instead of driving all over town (and driving yourself crazy) looking, get your Whirly Pops at Cracker Barrel restaurant in their little gift shop up front.  Or you can order small quantities online at Bulk Candy Store.  Most places I looked at online wanted you to order full cases (which might be fine if you're doing the whole wedding party).  This site had some cute colors (the blue/white and lavender/white) and you could order individual pieces.  Shipping wasn't outrageous and it got here really quickly.
  • Just use good old packing tape or duct tape to hold it all together.  I tore off a bunch of 3 inch pieces and stuck them to the edge of my table before I started arranging so I could line up the lollies where I wanted them and just grab the tape without having to set everything down.
  • Saw off any long ends of the wooden sticks.  You don't really want those poking out the bottom of your ribbon.  Or maybe you do.  I didn't.
  • Wrap the sticks with some pretty ribbon so it looks all professional-like.  Stick some pearl tipped pins every so often to hold it all in place.
  • Make sure the bride is doing bicep curls for weeks before the wedding because this bad boy is HEAVY!
I'm linking up here:



  1. It looks great! I love it. I've never seen a bride carry a candy bouquet before.

  2. I love this. It would make for a cute centerpiece for party too.

  3. I still like the other one better - it IS a cute idea though :)

  4. I personally think it is missing the Hershey Kiss roses. Don't you?

  5. This is amazing. I've never seen a candy bouquet before.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
