Candy Arrangement Ideas

Updated on July 9, 2009

What You Need To Consider Before Starting Your Candy Bouquet

Thinking of starting a candy bouquet business but need some candy arrangement ideas? Making candy bouquets is a lot of fun and allows for plenty of creativity. However, there are some things that you need to remember when making candy bouquets:

  1. What thoughts and wishes you want this unique gift to convey?
    Each candy arrangement sends a special message. Your message can be reflected in the types of candy you use. Don't use junk candy for a romantic candy bouquet. Gourmet rose chocolates would be more appropriate. Lollipops spell fun and can be used as a "picker-upper" gift.
  2. Choose a theme.
    This will make it easier for you to select the color scheme, types of candy, the container and also additional decorations. For example, Christmas would mean green and red colors. Candy and decorations would include candy canes, christmas trees, santa claus, reindeers, poinsettia and snowflakes.
  3. Who is the recipient?
    One of the reasons why candy bouquets make a great gift is the opportunity to customize it to the recipients liking. Find out what are the recipients favorite candy, color, and flower. Also don't forget to inquire about any health issues you need to be aware of. Maybe they are allergic to certain nuts or they are diabetic.
  4. Budget
    Some people don't mind splurging their money on a loved one. Some people have to live within a tight budget. Therefore, you have to make different types of candy bouquets that cater to different types of clients. Before starting your candy arrangement, decide what price range you are aiming for.

How To Put Homemade Baked Cookies On A Stick

Candy Arrangement Ideas

  1. Candy and biscuit bouquets
    Combine candy such as lollipops with favorite biscuit snacks like Oreo Sandwich Cookies, Chips A Hoy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Nutter Butter Cookies etc... Mount the snacks on stems. If you want to be more unique, you can make your own cookies. Go to the baking store and I'm sure you'll find cookie cutters in many shapes and sizes. Your homemade baked cookies can be baked into whatever shape you think is suitable for the occasion. If you want a more floral touch, you can make flower cookies.
  2. Chocolate bouquets
    Chocolate bouquets are perfect for that romantic touch. It's ideal for occasions such as Valentine's Day and anniversaries. Use heart shaped chocolates, long-stemmed chocolate red roses, Ferrero Rochers, milk chocolate truffles and Toblerone bites to convey the message of love. Just remember when you insert the sticks into the chocolate, make sure the chocolates are at room temperature. If they are cold, they will crack.

    A chocolate bouquet can also be used as a "fun" gift. Maybe the recipient is a chocolate fan and is going through a stressful time. You could compile some chocolate snacks such as Hershey's, M&M's, Snickers, Milky Way to be used in the candy arrangement. I'm sure that will chase the blues away for awhile. 
  3. Sugar Free bouquets
    Not every can enjoy sugar treats. There are people on a diabetic diet, trying to lose weight or just want to be more healthy by taking in less sugar. However that does not mean they should miss out on the fun. You can create a sugar free candy bouquet. Shop around and you'll see that you have plenty of sugar free candy as options for your candy arrangement.
  4. Lollipop bouquet
    Make your candy arrangement entirely out of lollipops. You can craft lollipops to look like flowers. You can also combine the lollipops with silk flowers. They are also lollipops that are already in the shape of flowers, stars and hearts. They come in different flavors and colors.

Breathe in, breathe out and let your creative juices flow.

Start with the container. It doesn't always have to be a box or a basket. You can use mugs, ceramic bowls, pots, or a sundae glass.

Then give your candy arrangement a little pizzaz with bows, curling ribbons, ribbon loops, silk flowers, leaves, colored cellophane, stuffed animals, small toys, balloons, colored tissue paper. Make sure you don't overdo it though.
