Baby Shower Candy Favors and cute invites!

7:00 AM

I am getting so close to having this baby and am quite anxious for her arrival!  I'm glad that I had my baby shower awhile back as I was feeling a lot better than I am these days.  I had quite a few of you ask me about the cute candy favors that one of my friends made for my shower!  I asked her to share how she made them so I could share with you guys and also a couple more photos that she took at my shower.  (Directions are at the bottom of the post)

She also made this adorable diaper cake for me!

Shower invitations are so fun as they set the tone of the party well ahead of the big day and I loved the ones that my sister sent! (You can see them here).  Huggies has created some super cute baby shower invitations with Punchbowl.com that make it so easy for you to pick and send out to your guests!  Here are some of my favorites, how cute are these?

I also wanted to share with you Tend’s Pin-To-Win Sweepstakes where you can enter for a chance to win $1000 towards a baby shower!

read more for the directions on the candy favors!

Candy "Bouquet" Favors (for baby or bridal showers)
- 1"x8" cellophane pouches
- 2.25" x 8" cellophane pouches
- BBQ Skewers
- Photo squares (or any double sided tape)
- Tags (I made these on my own in PowerPoint but can be purchased via sites like Etsy)
- Mason Jars/vases/etc.
- Hemp (or any raffia, ribbon, etc.)
- Various candy (m&m's and skittles work well for the smaller pouches.  Sour belts, other gummy candies work for the larger pouches)
Directions (small pouches):
1.  Gather color coordinated candy based on your party's color scheme
2.  Using the 1"x8" cellophane pouches, fill with m&m's and skittles in alternating colors
3.  Leave about a 1" space at the end of the pouch and fold over the self-adhesive to secure
4.  Using photo square (or double sided tape), attach a tag to the end of the pouch
Directions (large pouches):
1.  Gather color coordinated candy based on your party's color scheme
2.  Using BBQ skewers, skewer gummy candies in alternating colors
3.  When skewering sour belts, use two strips
     a.  starting at one end, skewer first belt and skewer second belt perpendicular to the first one
     b.  skewer the length of the belt folding over and alternating between belt #1 and belt #2
          * make sure not to skewer too much candy - 6" is probably good
4.  Carefully put skewered candy into 2.25"x8" cellophane pouch
5.  Using hemp/raffia/ribbon, tie the bottom of the cellophane pouch to the skewer.  (You can cut off the self-adhesive part for these to make it look nicer/neater)
Once you have skewered and filled your pouches, use a mason jar or another vase to put your "flowers" in.  To dress these up even more, you can line mason jars or vases with green crepe paper to make them look like leaves or even blue and clear marbles to make them look like water.  Have fun with it and get creative!
