Retro 1950’s Candy Corsage


Another of my  homage to the 1950’s.   The infamous,  candy corsage traditionally for children that graduated to all ages wearing them. Assorted new & vintage ribbon bows are overflowing with an assortment of sweet bites & nougats.  At 50’s parties, the birthday lady had the bigger corsage while each guest had matching, mini, pin ons. 🙂


Corsages are made as a small-about the size of a lime with 5 candies/medium about the size of an orange with 8-9 candies/large about the size of a grapefruit with 12-14 candies (shown) for girls.   As a pin on for the boys and party guests with 2 candies.  At 50’s parties, traditionally the birthday girl had the bigger corsage while each guest had matching, mini, pin ons. 🙂

**Each candy corsage is made to order with assorted sweets.  If you would like a special ribbon color just put your preferred color/s in the NOTE field at checkout. ++

++Chocolate is replaced with other goodies from May 1 -Oct 1 due to the warmer days.++

**Shippable nationwide!++


Just for fun….Traditionally whatever the age was the amount of candy;  with some… acquiring meanings in the later years:
10-lollipops still a little girl…..or boy!   White ribbons
11-gum drops “Goody goody gumdrop happy”  Green ribbons
