Bees are attracted to pretty much any floral colors right? So I’m not sure you can exactly prevent them from showing up if you’re going to be outside… but the cotton candy bouquets sound cute!

Do you have an inspiration photo for this? Trying to figure out how it would look, and I’m a little stumped! 🙂

as a cotton candy lover I think that’s a super cute idea … but yeah, gotta make sure they don’t get wet!  or eaten too early 🙂

I know you said not real, but I don’t know, honestly. I’d have to see a better example. Honestly though, bees are attracted at smells and colors. They could come toward you because of perfume, lotion, the pattern on a sun dress, etc. If you like the idea, make a mock up and see how it looks, but I’d still keep an eye out for bees.

Personally, I think it’s a little strange (sorry). Are you against faux flowers? Like PP said, the colors could attract bees anyway, and silk flowers would take away the danger of the bees coming after actual flowers.

I think bouquets of 3 little faux cotton candy sticks would be adorable, pink yellow and blue maybe? Little paper cones and some dyed quilting fluff. Another cute idea would be glazed pink popcorn balls (again, the glaze would be fake so no melting or smell), which are also very vintage treats, or you could even do little wax paper wrapped pieces of colorful clay tied with ribbon for a salt water taffy bouquet.

Or you could do something totally different and do a strawberry bouquet (fake strawberries) tied with a gingham scarf or ribbon.

I personally think it’s really weird.  There are a lot of alternatives (brooch bouquets come to mind) that are less…weird.  Sorry!

Kinda cool!  But i’d be careful with dyes and things like that.
