Big lollipops: A sweet addition to your bouquet #Favors & Flowers#candy#non-floral bouquet#steal-this-idea December 12 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photos by Matthew Ryan Photography Longtime readers know that non-floral bouquets can be a low-cost and high-fun alternative to real flowers. And for those of us who have a sweet tooth (yours truly represent), adding some candy to your bouquet makes it, quite literally, that much sweeter. We've seen rock candy and cookies added to a bouquet before, but I love the addition of big ol' colorful lollies, like at Melanie and Justin's carnival wedding. The best part of using these big lollipops is that they can actually be the bulk of the bouquet instead of just an accent. No… actually the best part is having them leftover for post-wedding snacks!
