Don't be surprised if these favors go home intact with your guests. You're sure to hear "But it's too pretty to eat!" over and over again. Make favors for each place at the table, or display several on a white wire tree as a romantic centerpiece. Adorn tree with pearl string, lace, and ribbons.

Purple foil-wrapped chocolates, 1/4"x1 3/4" square, three.
Gold foil-wrapped chocolate egg, 1" long.
White glittered plastic dove, 2" across.
Purple metallic mylar shred basket filler, small amount.
White tulle circle, 9" diameter.
White/iridescent instant-bow ribbon, 1/8" wide, 2/3 yard.
Purple satin ribbon rosebud with loop leaves, 1" across.
Supplies: Scissors, ruler, low-temperature glue gun.

Cut one 5" and one 8" length from instant-bow ribbon. For hanging loop, knot ends of 8" length. For birdhouse, glue edges of square candies together as shown in Fig. 1, securing hanging loop knot between candies at roof peak.

Cute idea maybe it would be cute if you substitue the purple with the scheme colors (bridesmaid dress colors).

Absolutely. Use whatever colors go with the brides color scheme. This one was just an example of what you can do. You can embellish any way you choose by adding different flowers or beads or colors. :D
