If you want something delicious for your groomsmen, make a broquet.
Yes, broquet. It's a bouquet ... for bros.
It's really easy to DIY. You can put them together in a handful of minutes and they're really eyecatching. Plus, you can personalize them for each groomsmen.
What You'll Need:
- Heavy mug (the heavier the better because it needs to offset the weight from the snacks)
- Duct tape
- Styrofoam cup
- Chopsticks (you could use skewers instead, but they might be a little long)
- Snacks (chocolate, chips, cookies, Cracker Jacks ... whatever your guys like)
What You'll Do:
Squeeze one Styrofoam cup, upside down, into the heavy mug.
Duct tape the snacks to a chopstick.
Stick the chopstick either into the cup or into the space between the cup and mug. You'll want to vary where you stick these based on size and weight (big heavy stuff goes in the back, short light stuff goes in the front).
What worked best for me was sticking them all on the chopsticks and then arranging them. I had originally tried to do them one at a time, but in the time it took to duct tape a second chopstick, the first item would lean. It was a pain in the neck. When I did it all at once, everything was able to lean on everything else and I could really arrange it better. This is so solid and I have no fear of anything leaning and dragging down the rest of the broquet.
It's so easy. This one cost me $10 to make and I grabbed everything (even the duct tape) at the dollar store. The more you make, the cheaper each will be. Why? Take an item like the peanuts. There were six in the pack I bought, but only two packages really fit in the broquet. So for $1, you can make three. The animal cookies had four in a pack; the Cracker Jacks were three in a pack; the Nature Valley granola bars were two in a pack. Spread those over multiple broquets and you are spending less.
The mug I used comfortably held eight chopsticks worth of items. You have to keep in mind that some of the items are bulky (like the filled pretzel bag I bought) so it will take up more space.
Imagine having a bunch of these all lined up for your groomsmen. They will be really eyecatching and your groomsmen will absolutely love all the snacks. What guys don't love food?
