I recently came across this awesome little store The Red Balloon Candy Artisans in Prahran. I was on Instagram searching for inspiration for a wedding I was working on and I came across their profile. I was so excited to find this store in Australia…let alone in my own city. I immediately popped into the Prahran store for a look at their amazing creations. The Red Balloon Candy Artisan shop is cosy and full of all types of candy. They make the candy right in front of you too. It smells amazing. Some of their creations included; vegan friendly jelly cubes, moustache and red lip lollipops, candy rock skulls and these fantastic Printa Pops (below).
So I originally popped in to talk to them about Printa Pops filled with edible flowers. I ended up buying a heap of Red Lip lollypops for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party that I was attending in California. They were perfect for my bunch of cheeky ladies. You can check out my bachelorette bags here. I also bought a few other lollipops to show, Pixie my colleague at work. We were working on a poppy-themed dinner party and I wanted to order poppy Printa Pops so I could place them at each place setting. The dinner party was for Girl Geeks Dinners and they were well received by the girls. I have a photo of the printa pop here on Instagram.
There are so many fun ideas for unique creations by The Red Balloon Candy Artisans. If you want help coming up with custom printa pops, let me know.
