Party Favours – Bomboniere


The day our family was anxiously waiting for had finally arrived: Aura, my daughter, had received an e-mail letting her know that she officially graduated.

Having had continuous bureaucratic problems with the University she attended, which made her a little superstitious in the organization of her graduation party. We actually had to wait till the last minute for her to give us the, “Ok, you guys can start organizing the party now.” I know that this may sound very ridiculous, but in certain universities (fortunately not all, at least hopefully) in Italy don’t function at the expectation of receiving the information needed to allow students to simply be able to study. Students normally would have every right in receiving the information required, without repeatedly having to implore requests. Diplomacy, and patients should not be requirements needed to overcome this barrier which should not exit in the first place; considering the taxes that are paid. I’ve talked to students which had the exact same issues with the same university. Unfortunately some of them just gave up. (The recession made this condition worse.)

Never the less her course allowed students that don’t have the possibility to attend classes, to study on their own. However with the University’s reputation this ended up being an obnoxious challenge.

When my daughter finally managed to get through all her courses, and what should have been one of the best days of her life; in attending the official graduation ceremony, she refused to go. Telling us that too much hypocrisy would have made it difficult to live with her conscience.

Being very proud of her, but at the same time a little disappointed in not having the experience of attending a graduation ceremony, we thought it would be fun to throw her a graduation party. 

Now that I got all that issue off my chest, I can go on with the introduction of the 40 party favors I made for the guests. I finished them in less than a week. They are 3 books which are suppose to represent the 3 courses Aura took in Foreign Languages and Literature (English, German, Italian). They can be used as message, note, or place card holders.

My son, Amedeo, swilled the note holder stems, which wasn’t easy, being they are made of stainless steel. The red coated almonds candies, are traditionally accompanied with the party favor here in Italy for graduations. (White for weddings, communions, and conformations, blue for baby boy baptisms, pink for baby girl baptisms.)

Queste sono bomboniere di laurea: in occasione della laurea di mia figlia ne ho realizzate 40 in tre giorni, più qualcun altra da presentare ai mercatini. Spero si capisca dalle foto che si tratta di tre libri sovrapposti , con un elegante asticella in acciaio che termina in una spirale porta foto/pensieri, che per l’occasione può fungere anche da segna posto.

Naturalmente si possono realizzare bomboniere anche per matrimoni, battesimi, comunioni, cresime, anniversari ecc…
