Yvonne's Top 5 Best-Selling Candy Bars of 2012

2012 was the year of "Special" Occasions. For most, the "special" part meant having an event with quality and character that reflected the identity of the person or object being celebrating at that moment.  It was all about attention to details and giving guests a stunning and magical feeling and experience.

For 2013, many party planners have already added Yvonne's Candy Boutique's candy bars to the list of must-haves for their upcoming events. Yvonne's Candy Bars have become a unique accessory for dessert tables, party favors, table settings and more.  They are the opportunity to leave a lasting impression with your guests and provide them with a sweet treat to go with the fabulous memories.

Yvonne's Candy Bars are Hand-Crafted and designed completely with you in mind.  Put all of your dreams and thoughts into these custom-created chocolate delights just for you and your beloved guests. 

Yvonne's candy bar chocolate of choice is Hershey's Milk Chocolate, but will take special requests. Most importantly, you can add your "special" touch by choosing custom accessories like glitter, rhinestones, ribbons, bows, and more.  We'll help bring your dream to life!

Below were our top 5 best-selling candy bar favor themes for 2012:

#5: Peacock Candy Bar Favors 

Our rich peacock-inspired favors were just Introduced in the fall of 2012 and made the list as one of last year's hottest selling designs!

The most popular color trends for 2012 weddings, showers, birthday parties and events, were jewel tones in the purple, blues and green families, that will continue well into 2013.  While they are great for Peacock-themed events, they can also just enhance a simple inspiration. 

Like all of our candy bar designs, they can be ordered with and without extra embellishments like glitter, rhinestones, satin bows, etc. 

#4: Holy Cross Candy Bar Favors

Yvonne's Invitations found their spiritual side this year with our popular holy cross themed candy bar favors.  Just like having that beautiful dress or suit to wear that day, it's important for the event decorations to be just as special as the person celebrating their religious experience.

 These candy bar favors are the perfect way to thank your guests who are there to celebrate  a Christening, Communion, Confirmation or New Baby! Like all of our designs, they are easily customizable for your event and are available for a Boy or Girl. 

What started out as a custom design for one of our customers, grew into more and more requests for other religious events. Which eventually evolved into an entire collection including matching invitations, favors tags, miniature chocolates, etc. also available in Yvonne's Candy Bar Boutique! 

These too can be ordered plain or embellished with your choice of special décor.

#3: Chandelier Candy Bar Favors
Light up the room with Yvonne's Chandelier designed candy bar favors! This look is sweet and sophisticated and works for any event.  From weddings, bridal showers, girl birthday parties, adult birthday parties, sweet sixteens, bat mitzvahs to even baby showers!

This design's colored background can be customized to match your event and your unique ideas. 

Looking for a sparkling chandelier? Choose from partial or full rhinestone embellishments to fit your budget.

Even though this candy bar design is only # 3 on the list, it was a real hit in 2012 and will continue to be just as big in 2013! We have had a ton of great feedback from customers after their events. 

#2: Sex and the City Candy Bar Favors

This is our # 1 request for bachelorette parties! Usually with the Bride's name before "and the city." Other ideas include birthdays, girls' night out, spa parties, going away parties, etc.

Like all of our candy bar designs, they can be ordered with and without extra embellishments like glitter, rhinestones, satin bows, etc. We also offer the matching water bottle labels - perfect for rehydrating after a fun night out!

And the #1 Candy Bar Favor in 2012 was...
Tiffany-Inspired Candy Bar Favors
This design based on the beautiful jewelry line "Tiffany & Co" was THE most requested favor of the year. The Tiffany blue color was one of the most popular wedding color themes for 2012.

These favors were used for very classy and sophisticated Tiffany-inspired events: aka "Breakfast at Tiffany's" parties including weddings, bridal showers, birthdays. etc...
The candy bar design seen above is fully customizable and available with or without the ribbon bow, or rhinestone buckle. 

This candy bar favor got the most attention last year and we are sure it will carry into 2013.

We know that 2013 will be full of unique and exciting party themes and we can't wait to add new designs to our collection. 
Not only are our favors affordable, they are also COMPLETELY customizable to your unique design taste.  We are happy to take special requests and provide you with a sweet ending to an amazing day!

To that end, we have developed a line of premium-quality supplements based on research and formulated to produce a noticeable result. In addition, we believe that you can’t be totally healthy in a toxic world and that real health also requires creating a sustainable environment and food system. To achieve these objectives, Natural Vitality operates in two ways: First, we produce high-quality award-winning dietary supplements to assist individuals in achieving optimum health. And second, a percentage of product sales funds our Natural Revitalization environmental action initiative, a program that supports organic farming and environmental stewardship. As part of this program, Natural Vitality works with groups such as Remineralize the Earth, the Center for Food Safety, and the Bionutrient Food Association, a nonprofit research, education, and advocacy organization dedicated to promoting and implementing natural ways to restore health and vitality to our soil and our food. Natural Vitality also helps educate consumers with a free award-winning online magazine, Organic Connections ( Natural Vitality believes that agriculture focused on quality, rather than quantity, is critical to our health. For our dietary supplements, we seek out organic whole-food ingredients wherever possible. All the fruits and vegetables we use are organically grown. The agave, stevia, and fruit flavorings are organic as well. This not only assures customers of no pesticide residues and no GMO ingredients but also provides financial support to organic farming. Additionally, Natural Vitality products often contain patented forms of supplement ingredients. These are standardized for consistent potency and many are backed by clinical research.
