FloretCadet’s awesome candy centerpiece got me thinking of different options FH and I could try. I like the idea of a vase filled with candy and flowers, but was trying to figure out how to put a vintage twist on it. I started researching candy brands that were popular in the 40s and 50s that are still available today (and aren’t gross). So far, I’ve come up with Dubble Bubble (invented in 1928) and Toostie Rolls (the mini ones are so cute). If flowers are in our budget, we could add them, though mini apothecary jars (if they exist) or just vintage candy bowls (which are a dime a dozen at thrift stores) might work, too.
What do you think of the idea? What other kinds of candy could we do, aside from the two I mentioned? Dubble Bubble and Tootsie Rolls are both really inexpensive, so it might be a better alternative than collecting a buttload of vintage tins (my original idea) and arranging them, possibly with flowers. (We could put the few tins I already bought on the guestbook table or something, so it wouldn’t be a waste.) The wheels are turning again, lol!
