Lollipops to Make Eyes Pop - Wedding Favours
Updated: May 6
Who doesn't love a good wedding favour keepsake?! When we first caught wind of the beautiful handmade lollipop favours that Dorsitano do for weddings and special occasions, we decided that it was a must to share with you.
Think custom, personalised luxury handmade lollipops in every colour, style and quantity. Perfect for weddings, hens, stags, bridal showers, christenings, proposals, birthday parties, children’s parties and corporate events.
Diane de Fleur from Doristano opens up her magic box of surprises with a fun account to enthral us.
1 | WHAT IS BEHIND DORSITANO
Dorsitano was born from a desire to mix originality and take tender memories from our childhood, and giving it a whole new meaning and use to these same memories by allowing them to be personalised.
We create sugar lollipops and other edible sweets by hand and on demand. The lollipops are completely bespoke in their design and we are constantly looking for new ideas, creations, with keywords that associate with them like finesse, elegance, refinement, femininity, and originality.
2 | WHY DORSITANO AS A NAME
After hours of brainstorming, and looking for a name expressing refinement and know-how, this word simply arrived on the table, spontaneously. It doesn't mean anything, sounds Italian (our lab is next to Italy) and we all liked it the second we heard it, so that's how Dorsitano came to be!
3 | WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS
For sure, it is clients who are looking for originality, a little offbeat, and who like personalisation. Generally our clientele is younger and creative, wanting to stand out, whether it be for professional or personal occasions.
4 | WHAT IS THERE TO LOVE ABOUT THE PRODUCT
I think it's personalisation, and transparency. Having something as original using a clients' very own photos is really novel and it makes the person who receives it smile and it is touching. Originality and tailor-made has that little something extra.
5 | WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS
100% sugar, even the tablet inside containing the photo. Only the wooden stick is not edible!
6 | HOW LONG DO THEY LAST
Well preserved, lollipops can be kept for several weeks! The greatest enemy of our lollipops is humidity. A dry place, ideally not very hot and without direct light, is the best way to keep them for a long time.
7 | IS ANYTHING POSSIBLE WITH THE LOLLIPOPS
Nearly! Anything that respects the laws of gravity and the rules of cooking sugar is in theory possible.
We love it when our clients are even more creative than us, and come up with ideas and challenges… Even when it is a theme and not a logo, we always try to look for something different and original. For each client and for any occasion.
We offer three types of product (with a decoration, with a pastille, or a cut-out image) but we also have collections, like our last 'Fine Art' collection that we simply adore, as well as the 'Boudoir' collection which will arrive soon! Keep an eye out for it on our Instagram account @dorsitano.
8 | WHAT SHAPES EXIST
Mainly, the lollipops are round, but we have had requests for original shapes too. As long as it is possible and we can guarantee that it all works then we are open to any cool ideas!
9 | WHAT CAN THEY BE USED FOR
We are fortunate to have an extremely diverse client base. Sometimes we have entrepreneurs looking for original items for corporate gifting, trade shows, bridal couples to surprise their guests, birthday...
The designs are unlimited because they are handmade. Our lollipops can be as much advertising tools and 'serious' (as much as a lollipop could be!), or as fun and 'childish' as the heart desires such as one we did with pink sugar bubbles and a unicorn inflatable for a crazy pool party!
10 | THE PRICE
They start at 5 € a piece. It is impossible (and it is not our desire) to do industrial manufacturing and lower our prices.
We really want to keep this very human side of the relationship with our customers, the desire to create something that resembles them, their excitement to see the finished product and to gift them.
The know-how in hand, the time spent in the kitchen... The whole process reminds you of the work of an artist creating a piece of art. This is our course of action. Each lollipop must be delicious AND beautiful.
11 | IS THERE A MINIMUM ORDER
Yes, but it’s not high! It is at least 12 lollipops, which allows you to make small orders, to try before taking more, and even to do it regularly to keep them fresh! In addition, these 12 lollipops are not necessarily with the same design, you can mix and match. Something our clients love to do and have fun doing.
