Delight family members by decorating reunion tables with sweet lollipops. Lollipops are surprisingly versatile table decor items and can double as party favors. Because the sweet treats are available in a wide array of colors and shapes, you can choose candy that complements the reunion decor theme and color scheme.
If the family reunion is taking place outdoors, create picnic or garden-themed lollipop table decor. Transform the candy with whimsical nature-inspired shapes. Cut flower, butterfly, bumblebee, dragonfly and bird shapes out of construction paper or card stock featuring vibrant hues of orange, red, blue, green and yellow. Fill plastic sand pails with sand or blocks of florists' foam. As a special touch, use craft paint to enhance the pails with the family reunion name and date. Push the sticks of colorful lollipops through the center of the paper shapes, and insert the sticks into the sand or foam to create a decorative arrangement.
Charming lollipop bouquets look just as sweet as real flowers but can also double as guest treats. Gather several vibrantly colored flower-shaped lollipops featuring long clear sticks. As an alternative to traditional flower shapes, choose heart-shaped pops instead. Foil-wrapped chocolate lollipops are another option if the party is being held in a cool location. Place the long-stemmed lollipops in a crystal or porcelain vase for an elegant look. As a decorative touch, tie a ribbon around the top of the vase and place it in the middle of the party table as a centerpiece.
Lollipop Place Cards
Make each family member feel special with personalized lollipop place cards. Set one treat by each guest's place setting; the candy will serve as table decor as well as customized favors. Choose large rainbow swirl lollipops to infuse the reunion table with a playful, cheery vibe. Place a clear cellophane wrapper over the lollipop candies, and use colorful letter-shaped stickers to spell out each guest's name on the bags. Finish the look by tying a small ribbon around each lollipop stick. Another option is to create guest name tags and tie them around the sticks instead of enhancing the bags with the names.
