Chanel Themed Candy and Dessert Buffet-Bridal Shower in New York (Part 1)

We can't get enough of the beautiful Chanel themed candy and dessert buffet we created for Gizem's bridal shower at the Powelton Club in Newburgh, New York.  Gizem's candy table was styled in pink, black and white to coordinate with her gorgeous Chanel inspired bridal shower.   The sweets table was filled with candies and chocolates - gumball necklaces, french macarons, rock candy, peanut butter cups & more.   Our friend, Carol at JALS made us beautiful chocolate covered Oreos, pretzels & cake fudge pops.   We created custom chocolate bar wrappers for the Godiva Bars and personalized favor bags.  The table came together beautifully.  Check it out....



Thank you for checking out Gizem's Chanel inspired candy & dessert buffet! Up next on the Blog are the Chanel inspired candy & cupcake tables we created for Chantal's Bridal Shower in Rhode Island.  

Frozen Themed Candy Buffet - Alexa's Birthday

We woke up this morning to a little surprise.   S-N-O-W.  Yes, only a few more days until April and it's really snowing.  We can't believe it.  Everyone in New England is about ready for summer.

The unexpected snow fall and our dreams of summer are bringing us back to Alexa's Birthday Party last August.  This adorable little girl was turning 5 and her parents, Anthony & Jessica were throwing her a really cool Frozen Themed Birthday Party in their gorgeous backyard.   We were thrilled when Jessica & Anthony asked us to create a candy table for the celebration.  This was our first Frozen Themed Candy Buffet so we immediately got to work - researching fonts, downloading images, picking out candy, gathering snowflakes (all of the behind the scenes work that goes into creating our signature candy tables).  We have to say, we were quite happy with the results.   

The Frozen Candy Table was filled with color coordinated candy & chocolates including some fabulous Olaf Cake Pops from our friend Carol at JALS.  The entire table was decorated in white, blue & silver with snowflakes perfectly placed throughout the table - on the tulle skirt, candy jar labels & hanging from branches on our manzanita centerpiece.   Alexa's Frozen Themed Candy Table was just gorgeous!  Take a peek for yourself.....

We hope you enjoyed Alexa's Frozen Inspired Candy Buffet.  If you would like us to create a one of a kind candy buffet for your next event, please e-mail us at  We look forward to hearing from you!

Mickey Mouse Farmhouse - Nico's Candy Buffet

Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse.......Check out Nico's Farmhouse!   

But FIRST...we must tell you a little about Nico.  Nico is one of our FAVORITE clients.  He's SO adorable - with the perfect hair, trendy clothes and the most crazy cool parties. Thanks to Nico's parents, Richard & Lori, we've been lucky enough to attend three (Yes, THREE) of Nico's fabulous celebrations.......and he's not quite 3 yet!  

We designed a beautiful blue & white candy buffet for Nico's christening, a prince themed candy buffet for his 1st birthday and (our favorite yet) a Mickey Mouse candy table for his "Mickey on the Farm" 2nd birthday party at the beautiful Silver Sands Beach & Tennis Club in East Haven, Connecticut. 

We were thrilled when we heard Lori's ideas for Nico's Mickey Mouse Farmhouse birthday.  Lori has amazing taste & she DEFINITELY knows how to throw a party.  Since Lori was using cow print and gingham print throughout the party decor, we made sure to incorporate those prints into the candy table - in the Centerpiece Box, Pixy Stix Labels, Banner, Candy Jars, and Rock Candy Sticks.  The talented, Kim at Sweeties made us some adorable cow print & gingham print Chocolate Covered Oreos.  We even called on our friend Carol at Just a Little Something to make us some cute little fudge pops - we went with a pig, chicken, cow and Mickey Mouse of course!  They were just perfect displayed in our hay filled box!

So...without further ado, we would like you introduce you to Nico's Mickey Mouse Farm House Candy Buffet.

Thank you for checking out Nico's Mickey Mouse Farmhouse Candy Table.  We hope you enjoyed!

Gold & Blush Candy Table - Simsbury Inn

We have a little obsession with gold lately.  Ok....maybe a BIG obsession.   We've been using gold everywhere......from our new logo, our own jewelry and throughout our most glamorous candy buffets.  

And gold weddings?  We absolutely love them!  The ONLY thing we like better than a gold wedding is a GOLD & BLUSH Wedding.    Our sweet clients, Kim & Scott had a beautiful gold and blush wedding & we created the most elegant gold & blush candy table that anyone has ever seen.  It was over-the-top gorgeous.

We covered the table with white & pink candies and chocolate - White Chocolate Covered Oreos, White Chocolate Covered Pretzels, White Kit Kats, Pink French Macaroons, Pink M&M's, Sour Watermelons & more.  We used our Gold Crystal Chandelier Stands throughout the table & custom embossed their candy favor bags in gold.  We even made a Gold Tulle Table Skirt for the candy table as we wanted everything to be just perfect for our new friends, Kim & Scott.  

In addition to the candy table, we created a large box filled with fun candies to place on the kid's table at the reception (this prevents the kids from digging into the candy table before it's open).   The kids were in heaven.

So, here it is.......Kim & Scott's Gold & Blush Candy Table at the The Simsbury Inn  in Avon, Connecticut.  We hope you enjoy!

Tiffany Blue Candy Buffet - Sweet Sixteen

Over the past year, we've traveled throughout Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut setting up Tiffany themed candy & dessert tables.  Everyone just LOVES a Tiffany & Co. party.  We've participated inTiffany themed bridal showers, baby showers, weddings, sweet fifteens & sweet sixteens.  Our Tiffany themed candy table is an absolute must for any Tiffany themed celebration. 

That leads us to Kaitlyn's Sweet Sixteen party at the Iberia Tavern & Restaurant in Newark, New Jersey.  This New Jersey tavern is quite the hot spot (we spent a little time on their outdoor patio, listening to live music & splurging on Portuguese food....we can't wait to go back).  The Iberia Tavern & Restaurant was also the perfect location for Kaitlyn's Tiffany Themed Sweet 16.  The entire venue was decorated in Tiffany Blue, White & Silver....our candy buffet coordinated just perfectly!  

The Tiffany Blue, Silver & White Sweets Table was filled with Kaityln's favorite candies & chocolates.

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.

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.'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). 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 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.  

More pics of the beautiful candy table.

Thank you so much for checking out Kelly & Greg's Sweets Table.  If you would like us to create a custom candy table for your wedding, shower or special party, please contact us at  Please provide the date of the party, location & number of guests.  

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 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!

The candy jars were wrapped in burlap & bling.

Here is a picture we took of the Louisiana Old State Capitol.  Stunning!

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 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!
