Greek Favors (Boubounieres)

     At Greek weddings almonds decorate each place setting as favors.  Sugar coated almonds are called koufeta and they are placed in little bags in odd numbers.

     They are served on a silver tray.  Odd numbers are indivisible, symbolizing how the newlyweds will share everything and remain undivided.  The significance of the Jordan almond is that fresh almonds have a bittersweet taste, which represents life.  The sugar coating is added with the hope that the married couple's life will be more sweet than bitter.

     Koufeta explanation cards are often offered with the favors and typically say:

     The white of the sugar coated almonds symbolizes purity;  the egg shape represents fertility and the new life that begins with marriage.  The hardness of the almond represents the endurance of marriage;  the sweetness of the sugar symbolized the sweetness of future life.  The odd number of the almonds is indivisible just as the Bride and the Groom shall remain undivided.
