As Valentine’s Day approaches, many of us are scrambling to plan a perfect evening with our significant other. Flowers and chocolates might be a good start, but you can go all out this year by making a unique candy bouquet.
Most people’s minds jump straight to chocolate when they think about Valentine’s Day candy. However, there are a lot of different sweets you can try out, such as jelly beans, gummy bears, peppermint candy, popcorn, or even healthier options like nuts or fresh fruit.
The beauty of these candy bouquets is that they work well for any occasion, not just Valentine’s Day. For instance, you can quickly put together a DIY candy bouquet for a birthday party, anniversary, or baby shower. And if you can’t get enough of these ideas, just follow the instructions below.
Before we begin, keep in mind that there are two options for candy bouquets: DIY or store-bought. The DIY version is accessible and cheap. But you might stumble upon issues like choosing the wrong color scheme. On the other hand, the store-ought method is faster but more expensive and not unique. We encourage you to try the DIY version first!
Candy Bouquet DIY
A DIY candy bouquet is an excellent occasion to express your feelings and remind your significant other how much they mean to you.
If you’re looking for a simple recipe for how to make a candy bouquet in the comfort of your home using everyday items, here’s what you need to do:
Step 1: Gather your supplies
- Basket. It should be sturdy enough to hold the candy. Try something with depth like a wicker flower basket. It’s easy to work with, and you can reuse it after the holiday. If you want to step up your game, consider dressing the basket by including extras like festive napkins or plates that coordinate with the candy.
- Ribbons or string. Because Valentine’s Day is often associated with red, you can’t go wrong with red velvet.
- Glitter. If you’re looking for that wow factor, don’t hesitate to add glitter to your candy bouquet!
- Candy. Choosing the type of candy is the most challenging part. For example, you can go with hearts (a mixture of pink and red candies) or cupids (gummy bears, lollipops, jellybeans, heart-shaped chocolates, sugar cookies). Pink and red candies are always winners!
- Flowers. You can add your own personal touch by choosing flowers that go with the holiday. For instance, you could include roses to show your appreciation.
- Handmade tags. Buy cardstock or construction paper and write a special message to your significant other. You could also include the candy’s name, your initials, or a short poem. Just make sure they’re attached to the candy bouquet with string.
- Others: scissors, tape.
Step 2: Arrange the candy
Once you have chosen your candies, mix them up – depending on what you like but also what your significant other wants. Swap different candies if needed since not everything enjoys the standard stuff.
Besides, variety will make this gift unique and fun for both of you. Or try to get candy your partner hates so that you don’t have to share!
Next, organize the candies by color. Otherwise, randomly colored candies look like you went for a last-minute solution with your candy bouquet and didn’t take time to set the details in place. Besides, a thought-out color scheme makes your candy arrangement elegant and adds depth.
Step 3: Prepare the candy bouquet
When everything is in its place, it’s time to start arranging. Be creative! Remember that ribbon or string? You can utilize it in a few different ways. If you don’t know what to do with it yet, just cut a piece about six inches long and wrap it around a smaller container filled with candy.
The container should be small enough so that all the candy fits into the bigger container below. At the same time, you should have enough room above to close the lid. Any kind of container works for this part, as long as it’s nicely decorated. You could also go with an old Pringle can, for example.
Also, don’t forget that this is a candy bouquet – not just a bag of candy. Consequently, flowers are necessary! Whether it’s the stem or just the leaves, you can use them to decorate your gift and make it look more festive.
Step 4: Tie up your candy bouquet
After arranging the candies in the container, tie it all up with some lovely satin ribbon. Don’t forget to add handmade tags on either side of the ribbon so that people know who they are from! For example, something along the lines of Be Mine or even your initials would be perfect.
And if you want everyone to know what’s inside without opening the lid (or maybe you just want to save time), stick a small piece of paper with the name of your candy bouquet on top.
Step 5: Enjoy your new candy bouquet
You’ve finally finished creating your candy bouquet, so it’s time to enjoy! You can present it at your Valentine’s Day date or give it as a gift at the beginning of the February holiday.
Just be careful. If you have kids, they’ll probably try to sneak one before dinner is served, and their parents might not appreciate that very much!
