A centrepiece made out of lollipops offers a few advantages over a traditional flower centrepiece. Lollipop centrepieces can double as a sweet treat or take the place of serving a separate dessert. A centrepiece made from hard candy lollipops will last a lot longer than one crafted of fresh flowers and can be bought weeks before the party with no fear of the confections going bad.

A tasteful centrepiece you create from bright coloured lollipops will liven up tables, whether the occasion is a children's party or simply a sunny luncheon. Start with plain white containers such as white ceramic flower pots. Place cylinder of floral foam in the pot to hold lollipops in place. Choose one large fancy lollipop for the centre and small solid-coloured, disc-shaped lollipops for the perimeter of the pot. After unwrapping them, place the large unwrapped lollipop in the centre and arrange about 10 to 12 smaller lollipops in a circle around it. Cover the floral foam with colourful candy such as Skittles, M&Ms or jelly beans. If you like, leave lollipops in wrappers so guests can take them home.
Put a new spin on an old idea, mixing and matching candy and real flowers. Create a traditional floral centrepiece with roses or another favourite bloom and add wrapped, sphere-shaped lollipops throughout the centrepiece. At the end of the party, invite guests to take a lollipop home with them.
For a simple, low-cost lollipop centrepiece, craft flower lollipops from construction paper and inexpensive lollipops. Draw and cut out flower shapes from construction paper. Flowers that are daisy-shaped work best. Poke a hole in the centre of the flower with the lollipop's stick, and slide the flower up the stem with the candy at the middle. Place a piece of floral foam in a basket or pot and insert the flower lollipops into the foam. Tie a colourful ribbon around the container for an added splash.
Make lollipops from scratch using sugar, corn syrup, water, cream of tartar, candy flavouring and food colouring. Gather candy moulds and a candy thermometer. With the variety of different lollipop moulds that exist, you can create lollipops to match your party's theme and colours. Cover the homemade lollipops in clear cling film or clear lollipop bags and arrange them in a vase for a colourful look and a tasty take-home treat.
