Father’s Day Candy Bouquet

by

I happened to be at Costco the day before Mother’s Day and saw a lot of men buying flowers.  It made me think about how much women love flowers.  I decided with Father’s Day right around the corner I would make my husband his very own bouquet…. minus the flowers. I went to the store and purchased ten of his favorite candy bars, gum, etc.

I then taped each candy to a long sucker stick I found at a craft store.  I then placed all the candy in tissue paper and added the tag: “To: One Sweet Daddy!” Printable.

I can’t wait to surprise Jared with a Father’s Day bouquet that won’t require any water!

    Love this! We are making a bouquet for my father and husband – ended up suing kabob sticks (97 cents for 100) and the mini candy bars with paper flowers stuck behind the candy.

    Loved this idea! My husband needed a new fishing license. So from my kids and I, I decided to do one with a fishing theme. I got him the license, gummy worms, swedish fish, a cool gummy x-ray fish, and some fishing bobbers. I cut out some big fish from colored card stock, glued the sucker sticks on the backs, and taped the treats to them. I wrapped them in the tissue paper and tied it with a bow. On the tag I put…For a “REEL-Y” SWEET Dad! We’re “HOOKED” on you! Happy Fathers Day! Then I printed off some cut and color fish online, and the kids and I colored them. We each wrote him a note on the back of our fish. I hooked them all together with fishing line and attached them to the tag. It turned out super cute! Can’t wait to give it to him! Thanks for the inspiration to get me thinking!
