Pronounced bon'bon-yâr (as in care)- europeans like to say bohn bohn yaire (pronouncing the finale "e")
The concept behind Bonboniere, originated in France, around 300 years ago, when a small box of sweets (the french word - bonbons) was given away to guests on happy occasions. Over time the idea spread to other parts of Europe, and in particular to Italy and Greece. Bomboniere (the Italian spelling) consisted of an uneven number (typically 5) of sugar-coated almonds, representing the bittersweet life of a married couple. The five almonds have significant meaning - wishing the new husband & wife: happiness, health, wealth, children & a long life. In Greece they are known as "Koufeta" (the Greek word for wedding favours) The giving of the bonbonničre is also traditional for christenings, baptisms, communions, confirmations, and graduations.
