Giving a Halloween candy bouquet is a great way to treat your children, nephews or nieces, or grandchildren to a sweet delight.
The truth is, even the not-so-young ones who are kids at heart would be thrilled to receive a colorful and very tasty display of candy bars, lollipops and other Halloween treats.
There are specific holiday seasons that we wait for with great anticipation every year. For most kids, Halloween is one of those occasions because of the haul of candy they expect to receive.
Though the theme and the meaning of each holiday changes, a candy bouquet is always a great option for gift giving that friends and loved ones really appreciate.
Let's face it. You could hand someone a bag of chocolates for Halloween, which is perfectly pleasing.
However, it just doesn't compare to the "wow factor" of turning that bag of chocolates into a creation that is a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds.
You don't have to make the bouquet yourself if you feel creatively challenged. There are several places that offer unique Halloween candy bouquets for purchase that will deliver right to your door (or their door if preferred). ;)
I've listed several Halloween chocolate bouquets from my favorite candy bouquet shops over there in the right column if you want to check them out, but it really is fairly easy to make your own.
How can you create a candy bar bouquet for Halloween? Don't worry, it's really not "scary" at all. ;)
You really only need a few simple supplies and you're on your way.
Mugs make great bases if you are just making a small candy bouquet. You can usually find cute Halloween themed mugs at your local Walmart, Big W, Target, Kmart, etc.
Buy themed holiday mugs and containers after Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween to use the following year. Most stores generally clearance out their holiday stock and you can pick them up at bargain prices!
Once you've chosen your base, cut a portion of florist's foam to fit into the base and hold your skewers. Attach each candy to the skewer using tape or hot glue. I wouldn't recommend poking the skewer right into the chocolate unless you are certain that it will all be eaten immediately.
In addition to the candy on the skewers, you can cut out pictures of bats, spiders, skulls, etc., and glue them to card stock before attaching them to skewers.
Arrange the skewers into the foam and complete the Halloween bouquet by adding some curly ribbon or a bow to finish it off. You'll be amazed at how cute it looks and how impressed your friends and family will be at your creativity.
You can use this same basic process to create a Christmas candy bouquet or for any other special occasion. Candy and cookie bouquets are a real treat that make the person who receives
Candy and cookie bouquets also work really well as a centerpiece for your table. It does double duty as decoration and then dessert! ;)
