Introduction

This idea comes from Digital Editor Alexandra Churchill. They were offered to each guest as part of a "Let's Flamingle" flamingo-themed birthday party.

 

Each paper package comes with a cellophane bag of colorful candies. Here, we included milk chocolate pearls coated in a mix of shimmery pink and white shells.
