Horseshoe chocolate candy

Floral candy packaging

Upgrade your candy packaging with a simple piece of fabric stapled on the fold. As a party favor for your tea party, you can give away saltwater taffy in cellophane bags, but instead of using the foil tie, cut a piece of floral or gingham fabric and staple it with the cellophane on top to seal the bag.

Robin eggs in a pail

Use petite, colorful metal buckets and fill it with Whoppers Robin Eggs as a party favor for your next Easter shindig! Then, wrap it with clear cellophane or keep it as it is. Kids will love it, and they can reuse the metal buckets for crafts, storage, or play.
