You could use real dirt, with real flowers planted in them (a low flower, like impatiens or merrygolds) so then the candy flowers will be high above.  Or just real dirt with moss.  Real dirt is better for the environment than styrophome 🙂  And favors can be bags of flower seeds for planting.

what about floral foam? that might be cheaper… not sure. or sand, rice, anything like that… rice is super cheap! as are pinto beans. if it’s covered with moss and/or something else, you won’t be able to tell. not sure if i’d do real dirt, since it’s going to make the handles/sticks all gross, and that is then going to be passed on to the tables… not pretty. 🙁

You can get floral foam at Walmart, and at some dollar stores, depending where you live.

What about glass marbles or some kind of small candy like jelly beans to anchor the suckers?

You could use sand, beans, or marbles. Any of these you’d be able to get at a hobby store.
