Miss Party was recently introduced to ‘La Violeta’ pastilles and has since become a little bit addicted to them. The violet flavor is very delicate and the candies themselves are adorable. If you need an edible party favor that’s pretty and keeps well, they may be exactly what you’re looking for!
La Violeta, open since 1915, is a teeny, tiny, itsy-bitsy sweets shop off the Puerta del Sol in the center of Madrid, Spain. The pretty, lavender, violet-flavored hard candy is their specialty and an icon of the city. For decades and decades the only way to obtain their famous candies was to visit the shop. Finally, in 2011, they made their sweets available to the world. Visit their online store for a good variety of options of packaging for pure quantity and for gifts in cute little, violet covered hat boxes and glass jars.
What party themes might these sweet sweets be good for?
Garden tea party, Victorian or English tea party (these pastilles were supposedly very popular with Queen Victoria), floral themes, Violet flower theme, purple or lavender color themes, feminine themes such as wedding shower or reception, Spain theme
