Make Candy Pacifier Party Favors in 4 Easy Steps!

Baby shower favors can be tricky. You want to give your guests something they’ll love but something that’s also very on-theme. We have a perfect idea that’s sure to get your guests buzzing – and it’s a fun craft, too!

A baby pacifier made of Lifesavers mints and gumdrops is sure to get guests talking (and is guaranteed to get quite a few photo snaps!). Here’s how to make them:

  1. Gather together Lifesavers mints, gum drops, prepared royal icing, a piping bag with a small tip, and ribbon. We offer both gumdrops and Lifesavers mints in bulk to help you save on this project!
  2. Fill the piping bag with the prepared royal icing and use a small dot of icing to attach two Lifesavers mints together in a T-shape (one mint stacked on top of the other, with the side of one touching the center opening of the other)
  3. Next, use another dot of royal icing to secure a gum drop to the top of the T-shape (the gumdrop should be centered over the opening of the top mint). Let dry for several hours.
  4. Thread a ribbon through the bottom mint and tie into a decorative bow. Hang from a favor tree, peg board, or display on tables.

Such a cute idea! Want to see a step by step tutorial? Check out this great walkthrough (complete with pictures!) from Crystal & Co.

Wedding Candy Must Haves

Whether you’re planning a whole buffet or just want a few candy dishes placed here and there, traditional wedding candy is a must. These candies can fill favor bags, give guests something to snack on while waiting for their meals, or accompany a slice of wedding cake. But where do you begin? These are the three staple wedding candies that we recommend starting with:

Jordan Almonds are synonymous with weddings. If you’ve never had a Jordon Almond, they’re an almond coated in a hard candy shell. They’re usually found in pastel colors or in a shiny white.

Weddings usually mean meeting new people and making good impressions. So what are you usually looking for when this occurs? A mint! Make sure your guests have a fresh breath with a sweet Butter Mint. Also called Pillow Mints, these mints get their name because they are soft and sweet.

You usually know Sixlets as the colorful, round, hard shelled chocolate. But many rely on Sixlets to add a pop of color to the candy selection. Sixlets come in tons of colors and can be easily matched to the wedding colors. If you have a candy buffet at your wedding, these are a no brainer!

To plan your wedding candy selection, head over to BlairCandy.com! You’ll find these traditional candies plus plenty of others to satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth.
