Les Cinq Amandes (The 5 Almonds) Confections & Gifts

As I opened up the beautifully boxed confectionery almonds I received from Les Cinq Amandes, the first thing I noticed was a slip of beautiful rice paper that told the story of how the name of the company came to be.

In the mid 17th century  Europeans celebrating weddings would often  offer their guests  five confectionery almonds symbolizing wishes for health, happiness, wealth, longevity and fertility. Les Cinq Amandes, Home of Artisanal Dragees  & Confectionery, is proud to continue this tradition, not only by offering the finest and most innovative hand-made dragees but also by renewing the set of 5 wishes to Health, Happiness, Longevity, Peace and of course Love.

I  love that this tradition is being continued today.  I find it to be both thoughtful and romantic. carries many beautiful confections for any special occasion and their website makes it so easy to design exactly what you would like to offer your guests.  You can choose from Artisanal Chocolate,
