Sixlets - A Baby Shower Candy Decor

If you've ever been to a baby shower, birthday party or wedding, you may have seen a table, such as a dessert table or front door table, with short or tall vases, filled with candy.  The color of the candy is usually the same color and theme of the special occasion. 


Most likely, the candy you see in these vases, are for guests to help themselves, but also serves as a table decor.  The candy can be anything you choose, but for this specific occasion, a baby shower that I am hosting, we are using pink sixlets.



Ok, we all know what sixlets are, don't we?  I mean, for those who grew up in the 80's (such as myself), I remember going to our local convenient store and picking up a small package of these sweets!

The sixlets shown here, are by Celebrations by SweetWorks, sold by Bayside Candy on Amazon.  This is a 2lb bag of sixlets that arrive at your house, well packaged and with a cooling pouch inside, to prevent the candy from melting while being shipped.  


I am using these pink sixlets at an upcoming baby shower, but I am still unsure how I'm going to use them.  One option, is to fill one or two semi tall vases and place them on the dessert table.  Another option, is to fill the mini pink plastic baby bottle favors to give to guests.  I'm leaning more to option one, but maybe instead of dividing them out into two vases, putting them into a glass bowl. Below are a few ideas from Pinterest.


These sixlets, Celebrations by SweetWorks, are a shimmering Bright Pink, chocolate candy.  You can purchase these by 1lb or 2lb bag, depending on your needs.  For those with allergies, you will be glad to know that these are not only gluten free, but were made in a nut-free factory.


There are approximately 540 pieces per pound, so with 2lbs, you are getting approximately 1080 pieces of chocolate candy!  That's a whole lotta candy!  I am thankful for Bayside Candy for giving me the opportunity to review their Bright Shimmer Pink Sixlets.  Oh, and by the way...THEY TASTE JUST AS I REMEMBERED!
