Dragées are large pebble shaped chocolates covered with a crisp shell. Traditionally of Italian origin, dragées were given as wedding favours to guests to signify the five qualities of marriage- health, wealth, long life, happiness and fertility. They can also be used as table confetti or party decoration as the colours they come in are absolutely gorgeous. If you want to say thank you to your guests after a christening or holy communion ceremony, dragée favours would make a great gift for that as well.

You can colour coordinate them as per your requirement and go an extra step and have them custom printed. Get the initials of the bride and groom, the wedding or christening date, or maybe even a cute message for your guests. They can be packed in pretty tulles, custom made porcelain holders or just used to fill a large glass jar.

These cute little booties were custom made by a very talented lady in France for a little girls christening. The dragees were printed with the girls name, packed in white net tulles, decorated with a bow and a card, and snugly fit into the booty. The client absolutely loved it and we are so glad we were able to make that little girls christening a memorable one.
