Candy Bouquet

My Mom and I put together a fun get well basket with a candy bouquet for my sister-in-law. It was fun to make, and it was the first time I had made something like it. It's funny because barely a month later I have a ton of ideas to "improve" it. I have to apologize for the photos. I was taking them as I was running out the door to deliver it. Therefore, they are not "staged". At least you get the general idea. The big flowers have a Ghiradelli chocolate in them and the smaller ones have the mini Hershey's. We wrapped the leftovers and included them in the gift set. The bouquet has wint-o-green mints in the jar. The picture with the two yellow flowers and leaves is a pack of gum. I am not experienced enough to figure out how to write directly under each photo. Sorry.

It's approaching teacher appreciation week and I generally make stuff to give the teachers. I may have to try one of these again. The challenging part this year is that one of my kiddos has a male teacher. Do I still give him the same gifts in a masculine paper/theme or do I change it altogether? He does have a wife and kids, but is it fair to make something that will mainly benefit his wife? He's throwing me off, I tell ya! I only have a couple weeks to figure it out. I was also thinking about putting together a recipe book or box. There again, would he really appreciate it and the countless hours that will go into it? Oh, the decisions I face are just unbearable (note sarcasm)!
Have a yummy day! I'm thinkin' I should clean house today or I just might get banned from the crafting world ;)
