Pink Princess Candy & Dessert Buffet - Baby Shower

We had so much fun creating this gorgeous Royal Princess Candy & Dessert Table for Carilla's baby shower at Akwaaba Mansion in Brooklyn, New York.  

The 12 foot sweets table was perfect for the princess to be.  The table was filled with pinks, golds and loads of bling.  We provided pink candies, pink cupcakes, and pink & gold chocolates - Chocolate Covered Oreos, Chocolate Covered Pretzels & Chocolate Covered Apples.  We had our friend, Carol at JALS make us some pretty pink & gold cake pops (we blinged out the stems of course!).  We made pink & gold princess crowns for the candy jars,  custom cupcake toppers, hand embossed candy favor bags, a custom centerpiece box & a huge pink tulle skirt for the table.

Carilla's guests absolutely loved the elegant candy & dessert table.  We can't believe how many of her friends & family members asked us for business cards.....we actually ran out!  Carilla's baby shower was definitely a special day that her guests will always remember.  

Take a look at our Pink & Gold Royal Princess Candy & Dessert Table.....

Vintage Fair Themed Candy Buffet-First Birthday Party

We're so excited to share photos of the candy buffet we created for Elena's First Birthday Party in Durham, Connecticut.  Elena's fair themed party was over-the-top amazing.  Elena's mom, Alicia definitely knows how to throw a party.  From the face painter, food trucks, cotton candy, fried dough & 12 foot candy buffet, no detail was overlooked.   

Since Alicia was having a Vintage Fair Themed Party for her daughter,  we used burlap & lace throughout the table as well as our rustic boxes, vintage containers & ruffled table skirt.    We styled the candy buffet in shades of peach, orange & gold to coordinate with the rest of the party.   I'm sure you want to know about the sweets......the table was filled with French Macaroons, Gumball Necklaces, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Chocolate Covered Oreos, Pumpkin & Apple Pies, Sour Patch, Pixy Stix, Jelly Bellies, Whirly Pops & more.  Take a look at Elena's Vintage Fair Themed Candy Buffet.......

Blue & Silver Candy Table - Kimberly's Shower

Anyone that knows The Candy Brigade understands how much we love our Tiffany Blue Candy Table.  It's our most popular candy buffet.   We create several Tiffany Blue tables every year......for all types of events - weddings, showers, sweet sixteens and baptisms.  It's such a pretty blue that looks fabulous at any party.  

And......it's really hard for us to admit this, BUT we think Miss Tiffany Blue FINALLY met her match.  Her name is Island Blue.  Our new favorite blue revealed herself this year during Kimberly's Bridal Shower at the Powelton Club in Newburgh, New York.   

Kimberly's sweet mom, Jeanmarie contacted us months before the party to discuss what she was envisioning for her daughter's bridal shower.  One thing was certain, the table had to be covered in Island Blue as this was Kimberly's favorite color.  This was our first time hearing of Island Blue.  We were pleasantly surprised when we got our first glimpse.  Umm....where has this color been hiding?  Island Blue is bold and beautiful.  It needs to be seen.....and it definitely should be spending more time at our parties.   It's such a gorgeous blue......perfect for the shower.

For Kimberly's bridal shower, we created a 14 foot sweets table covered in blue candies & chocolates.    Kimberly's glamorous candy table included Chocolate Covered Twinkies, Chocolate Covered Devil Dogs, Chocolate Oreos, Chocolate Pretzels, Cupcakes & loads of candy.  It was ridiculous!   Take a peek for yourself......










Kimberly's adorable flower girl, Jacqueline Lee actually gave Kimberly the 14 foot sweets table as a gift.   How sweet!  Here's the sign we made for Jacqueline Lee......

We want to send a special thank you to Kimberly's mom, Jeanmarie and her husband for hiring us.  And..... another thank you for buying us lunch at the Powelton Club (which was absolutely delicious).  And......one more HUGE thank you for insisting that we relax at their lake house during the party.  It was such a perfect day!

Let us know what you think....do you love this Island Blue as much as we do?  We can't wait to use it at another event!  

Rustic Candy Table - Purple Chalkboard Themed

One of our favorite events this year was Kelly & Greg's beautiful rustic themed wedding at Wickham Park in East Hartford, Connecticut.  I've known Kelly for several years & was thrilled when she asked us to create a sweets table for their wedding at the park.   We were even more excited when Kelly mentioned they were using chalkboard elements throughout the wedding.  We've always wanted to create a chalkboard themed candy table.   

For Kelly & Greg's special day, we set up a huge 18 foot rustic candy table.  To coordinate with their rustic chalkboard theme, we used chalkboard elements throughout the purple candy buffet - in the Cupcake Toppers, Pixy Stix Labels, Rock Candy Sticks, Favor Bags & Candy Jar Signs.   The gorgeous candy buffet was a huge hit!  

Here are some pics of Kelly & Greg's Rustic Chalkboard Themed Sweets Table.....










We provided guests with black chalkboard style favor bags along with handmade chalk-flowers, so guests could write their name on the candy bag before they fill it up with their favorite sweets.

Burlap & Bling Candy Table: Southern Wedding in Louisiana

Oh em gee.  Where do we begin?  We've been so blessed this year......creating gorgeous candy displays for all sorts of fabulous events.  We've set up over-the-top candy tables at some of New York City's finest venues, the Waldorf Astoria, Battery Gardens and The Russian Tea Room.  We've traveled to numerous venues throughout New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and to our favorite yacht clubs, country clubs & reception sites right here in Connecticut (Saint Clements Castle, Wadsworth Mansion, The Riverview  & the Interlaken Inn to name a few).  

Throughout our awesome travels this year, we do have to say we may have a favorite (we know.....favorite child, favorite client, favorite candy table...it just sounds so wrong).   Earlier in the year, we traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to set up a huge candy display for Brandi & Dane's magazine-worthy Southern Wedding at the Louisiana Old State Capitol.   Brandi's mom, Blair contacted us about surprising her daughter with one of our gorgeous candy buffets.  Blair had seen our work & just had to have us at the wedding.  Well.....we have to say, after Blair told us all about Brandi & Dane's wedding, we knew that WE just had to be there as well.

So....our 4 person team packed up & headed to Louisiana.  It was truly amazing.   If you've never been to Louisiana, you must take a trip.  The people are REALLY NICE.  "Make you feel like family" nice.  The food is FANTASTIC.  Can someone please tell us where to get some chargrilled oysters here in the Northeast? Lastly, it was FUN.  Yes.....we had to head over to New Orleans for a few days.    

Brandi & Dane's wedding was more than amazing.  I wouldn't be surprised if it makes an appearance in a Southern Wedding Magazine.   For the wedding reception, we designed a beautiful 16 foot candy & dessert table all decked out in burlap and bling.  The southern style candy buffet coordinated perfectly with the rest of the wedding.   The table was filled with Chocolate Covered Apples, Oreos, and Pretzels, Southern Style Gumball Necklaces and the largest Smores Bars you've even seen.    It actually took all 4 of us over 3 hours to set up this elaborate candy display.  

Here are some pictures from this southern affair.








We created some Southern Style Gumball Necklaces for our new Louisiana friends. They were a hit!

Thank you for checking out Brandi & Dane's Southern Style Candy Table!   

Be sure to contact us if you're interested in having one of our gorgeous candy displays at your wedding or special event.  We promise...it will definitely be an experience that your guests will never forget!  

And, remember what we said...The Candy Brigade LOVES the south.  We would go back for another event  in a heartbeat.  In fact, here is part of the crew (a few months later).  Back in Louisiana for a mini-vacation...just can't stay away from this place!

Penguin Themed Candy Table - Baby Shower

We have such a cute table on the blog today.  This pretty pink candy buffet was designed for my friend, Clarissa's beautiful baby shower last weekend at the Ludlow Country Club, in Ludlow, Massachusetts. 

We had a lot of fun creating this candy buffet.  Clarissa was so easy to work with - she only had two requests.  She wanted it "Pink"  & she wanted "Penguins".   So, here you have it....Clarissa's Pink Penguin Candy Buffet.  Please enjoy the pictures!

Prince Themed Candy Buffet - Nico's Royal 1st Birthday

We were ecstatic when Nico's parents asked us to create a candy table for his Prince Themed First Birthday .  We created a beautiful candy buffet for Nico's Christening, so we were thrilled when they reached out to us again.  In addition to the candy table, we decorated Nico's cupcake buffet, which was filled with cupcakes perfect for a prince.

Nico's Royal Birthday Bash was held at the Carousel at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, Connecticut.  It was the perfect location for this  fun birthday bash.













We adorned the candy jars with our handmade crowns.   We also embossed candy favor bags with a sparkly prince crown.

































We made these beautiful light blue, white & damask print candy bar wrappers

Pink Candy Buffet - Baby Shower

We were so excited when our friend, Jolene asked us to create a candy buffet for her sister-in-law, Ronda's baby shower earlier this month.  Jolene described Ronda as the ultimate girly girl & since Ronda was having a baby girl, we just had to incorporate lots of PINK & SPARKLE into the candy buffet. 

Ronda, Jolene & the rest of the guests absolutely loved the sweets table.  Here are some pics from the shower....


































We made these adorable pink custom labels for the lollipops which we placed in different candy jars throughout the table.












Rhonda loves Teddy Bears, so we embossed the candy favor bags with a silver sparkly bear.

Rustic Glam Candy & Dessert Table

As we start the new year, we thought we would share photos of one of our favorite candy tables of 2013.  We created this beautiful rustic glam candy & dessert table for Kristen & Andrew's wedding at Bill Miller's Castle. We're in LOVE with this 18 foot spread of sweets! We provided Kristen & Andrew's guests with a variety of candy, chocolate & pies.  The table was decorated in burlap & lace with a mixture of different stands and signs to coordinate with the couple's shabby chic theme. Freckled Frosting provided the yummy mini cupcakes & whoopie pies.

A special thank you to Kristen & Andrew for allowing us to take part in their special day!

We're so excited to share images of the Moroccan themed candy & dessert buffet we created for Angela's Bridal Shower at Testa's in Southington, Connecticut.   The purple & gold sweets table coordinated perfectly with the rest of the decor throughout Angela's Moroccan themed party.

The entire table was covered in purple, gold & chocolate sweets.  Some of our favorites included Chocolate Covered Apples & Pretzels, Rock Candy, Chocolate Coins, M&M's & Grape Gummy Bears.  Yum!  Please enjoy the pictures!
