Trick-or-treater finds wedding ring at bottom of candy bag

Nov. 4 (UPI) — A Newfoundland and Labrador family is trying to find the owner of a wedding ring found in a child’s candy bag after a night of trick-or-treating.

Gillian Lahoda said her son, Niko, didn’t realize until the end of the night that someone had apparently dropped their wedding ring into his bag while he was trick-or-treating Saturday in St. John’s.

Lahoda said Niko visited dozens of homes during his three hour quest for candy and does not know at what point in the evening the ring fell into his bag.

The mother said she is keeping details of the ring’s appearance under wraps for the moment so the rightful owner can describe it to prove ownership.

“I figure if anyone is missing a ring then they know it, or they will soon find out,” she told CBC News. “If I advertised what it looked like then how would I know that the person was telling me the truth?”

The family has put up flyers in the neighborhood and neighborhood Valier Elementary got involved by posting about the ring on social media.

“One of our students found a wedding ring in his trick-or-treat bag … he would like to return it to its rightful owner. Can you help us out?” the school tweeted.

The Best Wedding Reception Party Favors – Personalized Candy Bar Wrappers

Giving a wedding reception party favor to attending guests as a small token of appreciation is a tradition that most brides and grooms still follow. While some couples try to come up with novel ideas, none of these choices match the fun and enjoyment of having personalized candy bar wrappers create a special moment for your wedding celebration. Continuing to grab their full share of attention as one of the most popular choices, personalized candy bar wrappers easily capture the sentiment of your special day while adding memorable moments to your “sweet occasion.” Even more importantly, the candy bars are as good to look at as they are to eat. Here are several fun ways to incorporate personalized candy bar wrappers and favor tins into your wedding reception.

Edible Place Settings

How cool would it be for your guests to arrive at your wedding only to discover that their place cards are actually attached to candy bars featuring your married name along with the date of your wedding? You can even create a special message on the reverse side of the label. Plus, your guests are sure to enjoy having something to nibble on while waiting for the festivities to begin.

Candy Buffets

Traditional wedding receptions feature the bridal cake as the dessert, but, quite often, the guests are looking for additional sweets to satisfy their craving for sweet-tasting foods. This is especially true once the after-dinner coffee is served. A candy buffet offers the perfect solution, giving you the chance to indulge in a little chocolate perfection yourself with Hershey bars, Jordan almonds, and a variety of your favorite candies.

Decorative Elements

Floral displays and balloons are the traditional choices for decorative purposes for morning, day, and evening wedding receptions. Adding displays featuring customized candy wrappers and favor tins can add a nice touch of color as well as personality to your reception theme. From the whimsical messages and photos on color-coordinated candy wrappers to the Hershey nuggets and miniature candy bars, your wedding venue is filled with sweet messages of wedding bliss and sugary things to come.

For evening and formal weddings, you can include decorative displays featuring small stacks of candy with sophisticated wrappers throughout the wedding venue. For casual, morning, and afternoon weddings, you can display mini-stacks of candy covered in different colored wrappers, each of which offers a unique message to your guests. For every type of wedding venue, you can sweeten up your location with decorative jars or plates covered with piles of personalized candy bars and tiny nuggets of chocolate delights. Of course, wooden tea boxes filled with candy bars also add a nice touch of sugary fun to your wedding event.

Cakes

If you are truly a lover of all things sweet, why not consider a candy bar cake? The baker can decorate the sides of your confection with the milk chocolate candy of your choice standing on their sides.

The best wedding reception party favors may just be personalized candy bars …
