The history of Bonbonniere, also known as weddings favours nowadays, dates back to early Europe. The word comes from the Italian “bomboniera” which is from the French word “bonbonniere”. It basically means a box containing “bonbons”, or sugary treats.

Aristocratic families would give guests treats or sugar as a gesture of thanks. Sugar and sweet treats where considered a luxury in those days and generally out of reach of many. The giving of a small but lavish gift was not just a memento of the occasion but also a reminder of a family’s status.

The gifts where often adorned with dried or artificial flowers made of silk. If the family was well off the Bonbonniere was sometimes given in small vessel made of silver or crystal. Nowadays it’s usually a small engraved glass container.
