At my shower they used mini red apples, green apples, and tangerines. Each one represented the meal to be served to the person (red apple was a chicken apple salad, green apple was a veggie apple salad, tangerine was an asian chicken salad).

Sorry I don’t have a suggestion, but those are really cute.  Where are they from?

I saw pics from someone’s wedding recently (not sure if on here or what) where they jabbed the flags into Rolo’s. Those have gold wrappers, so do Fererra Rocher’s or however you spell it.

Non edible ideas – craft stores like Hobby lobby and michaels have styrofoam balls and shapes you could mod podge or paint, and wood blocks you could drill a small hole in and glue the flag into it and paint the block. We stood our table numbers up using the little wood blocks. I painted them, cut a slit in it, and glue gunned the table number into the slit.

What about painting styrofoam balls and cutting them in half?

IDK how crafty you are but what if you buy styrofoam balls from the craft store, cut them in half, and paint them to match your colors…then just jam the flags in there (maybe glue it so they don’t fall?)

Or playdoh or clay? I agree, styrofoam can be a pain to paint . . .

What if you stick it in the food itself? Are they things that are “sturdy”? haha

kb7:  maybe that’s totally out of the question, but what if you dipped the apples in paint to fit your colors?
