Favors for a Garden Party!

This month I will be hosting a birthday party for a one year old little girl.  Mine!!!!!  So I mulled over the idea what theme should I have?  Then I thought, May has such beautiful flowers- lets have a garden party theme, and every party needs a favor.  This is what I call my "whirley pop" favor.  Full of sugar for my little attendees!  This is a little step by step tutorial on how I made my favors for the party.

Step One:  Cut floral foam and place inside pot (should be snug)

Step Two:  Place lollipop into the foam, use some paper to fill the edges

Step Three:  Use your handy-dandy paper shredder to create grass from card stock paper (warning: clean out old paper before shredding or you will have white paper etc mixed in).  Place "grass" around the lollipop make sure all the paper is covered.

 Step Four:  Find cute candy that goes with the theme and place on the grass....

 I found these cuties at a local candy cheap chocolate flavor here!

Step Five:  Cut out a leaf from card stock and affix with clear tape to lollipop stem

Step Six: Get ready to party!

Looks like this one is lip smackin' good! :)
