White with Gold Olive Leaf Wedding & Baptism Favors (Bobonieres)
White Orthodox Favors (Bobonieres) with a Gold Olive Leaf
In traditional Greek Weddings and Baptisms the Sugar Covered Almonds are called “koufeta” and placed in small Organza bags referred to as Favors or Bobonieres. Each guest in attendance gets a Favor.
Theo Doro Koufeta & Sugar Dragees are Extremely Sought After! Our Sugar Dragees have a Soft Like Sugar Coating much like an M&M (Not Hard), made with the finest, freshest ingredients available.
Traditionally the Bobonieres are filled with 5 Almonds but can be any indivisible number (3, 5, or 7 but not 9 because it is divisible by 3). They are indivisible numbers, symbolizing how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided. Fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life. The sugarcoating is added with the hope that the newlyweds life will be more sweet than bitter. The 5 almonds have a significant meaning wishing the new Bride & Groom
- A long life
Tradition holds that if an unmarried woman puts the almonds under her pillow, she’ll dream of her future husband.
