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.

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!
