Chocolate lollipops are a popular favor for weddings, showers and birthday parties. Whether you make homemade lollipops or purchase them from a vendor, you will need a place to display them at your event. Placing them flat on a table is one way to present them, but since they will be flush with the tabletop, they might be overlooked. Displaying them in a stand is a better choice and you can create your own stands that are customized to reflect the theme of your party.
Small flower pots can be used as stands for the chocolate lollipops. Choose decorative flower pots that symbolize your party. Another idea is to buy plain pots and paint or decorate them to match the theme of your event. To have the lollipops stand upright in the pots, glue a floral Styrofoam ball inside of the pot and then stick the pops into the foam. One large flower pot can be used to display all of the lollipops or you can use several small pots, each holding several pops. You can place one small flower pot filled with chocolate lollipops on each table.
Decorative tins can be purchased in many dollar and craft stores. Look for ones that go with your party theme. For instance, tins with rocking horses would be suitable for a baby shower and tins with flowers would work well for a bridal shower. Place a piece of floral Styrofoam into the tin, securing it with double sided sticky tape placed on the bottom of the foam. Insert the chocolate lollipops into the foam to create a display. Place one tin on each table at your event.
Wrapping a box with paper reflecting your theme is an easy way of making a stand to display chocolate lollipop favors. Choose a selection of small boxes, or one large box. Purchase wrapping paper or craft paper that matches your event theme. For instance, for a birthday party you can choose paper with candles or balloons or for a graduation party you may choose graduation-themed paper. Use small weights to weigh down the box to prevent it from tipping. Make holes in the box to hold the lollipops before you wrap it. Wrap the box and insert the lollipops through the paper and into the holes in the box.
Small Vase or Jar
Use short, wide vases or jars as the stands for your chocolate lollipops. You can use colored glass, clear glass, etched glass, ceramic or pottery pieces. Fill the selected container with colored glass marbles or small stones. Stick the lollipops directly into the vase or jar, between the marbles or stones which will help them stand upright. Display the filled containers on tables at your party.
