This favor is to be in the shape of a small, old fashioned bouquet. Make first a rule of gumdrops. Coloring different portions of the mixture green, pink, red, yellow, or lavender. Shape the gumdrops in cornstarch like very small cones. Fasten a small lace paper doily to a 3 inch disk of cardboard. To the back of the cardboard attach fine wires wound with green tissue paper and silver foil to imitate the stems. On the doily arrange leaves of green gumdrop mixture or mint jelly, and flowers of other colored gumdrops. Fastening them in place with sugar syrup. Use as a favor at a luncheon or evening party.
