Matching Bon-Bon's

While at the Holts cafe last month waiting in line for my delicious chicken, arugula and gorgonzola flatbread, a striking display of packaged candies caught my eye. Nestled in a narrow display shelf was a group of black and white striped bon-bon's with a lustrous satin finish.


Closer inspection gleaned they were old fashioned treats produced by Hammond's and that the flavour was black and white licorice. Now I am a sucker for anything retro, but black and white stripes are one of the defining elements of my design tastes, so I pretty much died when I saw I could buy candies that complemented my future apartment so well.


I even have just the bowl for them- this stunner I just picked up at Chair Table Lamp. I love the slightly uneven shape and the luxe gilding of the rim.


The gold and black and white stripes combined with the shiny gold will be the perfect match for a certain special piece of furniture I have in the works....stay tuned for more details!

They are the chicest candy I have ever seen. Who knew? Candy as an accessory. Lovely!
