Jordan Almonds A Wedding Tradition

I expect that I will write many more wedding favor posts in the future. But today I want to start with you a wedding tradition, Jordan almonds. Those wonderful pastel colored candy coated treats that are oh so perfect for your wedding favors.  A treat for your guests to enjoy or take home for later.

Almonds have a bittersweet taste and it is said they represents life. The candy coating is added with the hope that the newlyweds' life will be more sweet than bitter. I love this! 

Five sugared almonds for each guest to eat
To remind us that life is both bitter and sweet.
Five wishes for the new husband and wife --
Health, wealth, happiness, children, and a long life!

Jordan almonds can be a lovely decoration too. Fill a glass with colorful tissues  add a flower and taa daa! Fill candle holders or wine glasses too.

Try putting them in a little bead box, add a pretty bit of ribbon and a few embellishments and it's a lovely wedding ( or party) favor.

Or stay with the traditional bag or box filled with yummy treats.  No matter how you share them, they are a wonderful and traditional wedding favor.


 Will you use Jordan almonds as your wedding or party favor? Do you like the bride makeup bag? It's available at my shop ( wink)
