Peony Cupcake Place Cards | Party Peony Cupcake Placecards

Peony Cupcake Placecards
I'm a big fan of party favors you can enjoy... by eating them.  I'm not much for mini picture frames inscribed with the theme of the event, or mini baby carriages filled with scented potpourri.  I like things I can eat!

This party favor idea (you might remember my tulip version from Valentine's Day) serves many purposes :

* Flower Arrangement/Welcome Table Flowers
* Escort Card/Place Card
* Centerpiece/Table Decor
* Dessert
* Favor

Peonies are great for this concept because they are edible.  Just be sure they come from your pesticide free yard, or an organic grower.

How To :

1) Start with jumbo cupcakes - I like chocolate for the visual effect of 'dirt'.  The cupcakes can be store-bought, homemade or semi-homemade using a mix.



2) Top with chocolate or vanilla icing (store-bought is fine) or use my homemade buttercream frosting recipe (a very easy way to make cake mix cupcakes taste even better).

3) Dip the iced cupcakes into Oreas that have been through the food processor or crushed in a bag.

4) Insert the peony into the cupcake just before guests arrive (as it is not a good water source for the flower).

5) Insert skewers with name labels.

  1. So cute! Could you use some of those teeny florist stem-vases (the little plastic ones), insert those into the cupcake, maybe with a bit of floral foam to keep the blossom straight? That way the plant has a bit of water, and it's not directly in something you'd eat.

    Such a fun idea!
