Orange and Pink Gerber Daisy Candy Table at Eolia Mansion - Harkness Park

If you read our earlier post, you know that we spent yesterday morning setting up a candy table and mini apple pie display at the Water's Edge Resort and Spa.  Well, what you may not know is that we spent yesterday AFTERNOON  somewhere  JUST AS   FABULOUS, The Eolia Mansion at Harkness Memorial Park- a beautiful mansion on the water in Waterford, CT - another great location to have a wedding. 

We went to Eolia Mansion to set up a fun candy and cupcake table for Amy and Chris - who were having their reception at the mansion that afternoon.     Although we never officially met Amy and Chris, we knew they were a fun couple by their candy selection,  wedding colors and style.  The couple requested fun candy such as  Giant Pixy Stix, Whirly Pops, Rock Candy and Candy Necklaces.  They also asked for cupcakes to incorporate into the candy buffet.  They wanted the table decorated in bright pink and bright orange to match their  flowers - orange and pink Gerber Daisies. 

We set up the candy and cupcake buffet  in the garden room in the mansion, which is completely surrounded by floor to ceiling windows with a gorgeous view of the ocean.

After we put the final touches on  the buffet, we headed out to explore the area during the wedding reception.   Since we didn't have to be back until 11:00, we decided to head over to Mystic.  We found a great restaurant, Azu where we sat down to relax and have a nice meal.  It was great to finally relax after being on 2 hours of sleep from the night before.  

After exploring Mystic for a bit, we made our way back to the mansion to breakdown the table.  We walked into the wedding reception and immediately realized we were right about this couple.   The music was going and the couple were getting down to Snoop Dogg (we had to hold Angela and Shannon back from running out on the dance floor).    The mansion was glowing with glow sticks, necklaces and lots of other fun props.   It was clear....we missed a great time!!

As the reception ended, we packaged up any remaining candy and cupcakes for Chris and Amy and headed  home to prepare for our next event - a pie delivery in the a.m.  for a wedding shower in NJ.   Who needs's just a waste of time!

Had to post a few pictures of the Brigade hard at work.  I'm sure the crew will appreciate it - after all this was an 18 hour day and we were on about 2 hours of sleep......

Many thanks for sharing most of these wonderful discussions. In addition, the optimal travel along with medical insurance system can often eliminate those concerns that come with traveling abroad. Some sort of medical emergency can soon become expensive and that's bound to quickly impose a financial problem on the family finances. Having in place the ideal travel insurance program prior to setting off is well worth the time and effort. Cheers
