Today a friend asked me if I had any cute ideas for party favors for a baby shower coming up this Sunday.
This is what I told her:
- Fill a small, clear, plastic favor bag (or small, clear take-out box)
with pink or blue jelly beans 1/2 way
- Tie bag closed with a pink/or blue polka dot ribbon
(for box, tie to handle)
- Thread one side of the ribbon through lifesaver pacifier (see directions below)
- Tie a bow around lifesaver pacifier allowing it to dangle in middle of bow
**At the baby shower, have these candy dishes lying around!**
Such a fun,cute and creative idea!
Your guests will sure to take notice!
1Unwrap all the Lifesavers.
2Take one Lifesaver and apply a thin layer of frosting around the inner hole.
3Grab a jellybean and place one of the short, ROUND ends in it, so the length of the jellybean is coming out of the hole.
4Flip the Lifesaver over.
5On the other side, take the frosting and make a slightly thicker (yet still on the thin side) layer of frosting around the inner hole/center, and place another Lifesaver perpendicular attaching edge of 2nd Lifesaver to center of 1st Lifesaver with jellybean attached to it.
6Place on flat surface and allow to dry.
7After drying for 3-4 hours, thread ribbon through the hole of the 2nd Lifesaver and tie in a knot.
