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!

Silver & White Candy Buffet: Stephanie & Mike's Wedding

We're so excited to share photos of the white & silver candy & dessert table that we created for Stephanie & Michael's wedding at the Saybrook Point Inn.  

We met the beautiful bride, Stephanie at the Hartford Bridal Expo, where she fell in love with the glitzy white & silver candy table that we had on display.  Stephanie was envisioning something very similar for their elegant wedding at the Inn..........lots of bling, tons of glam & loads of goodies.    This wedding was right up our alley!

Take a look at the 12 foot spread of delicious desserts & candies that Stephanie & Michael provided to their wedding guests.  We heard the table was a huge hit!

Pink & White Candy Table: Christening in New York

Only a few more weeks until spring & we cannot wait!  As I sit here under my warm fuzzy blanket, I can't help but daydream about the exciting trip we took to Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club in Mamaroneck, New York.  The club is located on a stunning multi-acre waterfront estate with breathtaking views of Long Island Sound.   Ahhhhhhh..... we must go back.

So, why did we make the trip?  We were contacted by Nareen, a fabulously fun mom who wanted to make her daughter, Adrianna's baptism a day to remember.  As soon as Nareen started telling us about Adrianna's celebration, we knew one of our custom designed candy buffets would fit in perfectly. 
For Adrianna's party, we created a very sparkly, extremely elegant candy table all decorated in pink & white.   Some of yummy sweets included Chocolate Covered Pretzels, personalized Pixy Stix & Rock Candy (created especially for Adrianna).

We provided custom embossed candy favor bags so guests could enjoy themselves for days or weeks to come.

Rustic Dessert Table: Snow White Photo Shoot with Sassy Mouth Photography

Mirror Mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?  Well......after getting our hands on the fabulous images from this fairytale photo shoot we participated in, our answer is clearly Marisa from Sassy Mouth Photography.  Believe me......even the Queen would agree!

Marisa reached out to us  about a month ago to ask if we would be interested in participating in a Snow White inspired photo shoot with a group of other very talented local vendors.  Ummmm....of course!  We immediately started thinking about what we wanted to create for the shoot.  It didn't take long to decide that we wanted to design a rustic dessert table for Snow White & her seven little friends that would coordinate with the whimsy woodland theme that Marisa was envisioning.  For the table design, we rounded up our blue birds, branches, moss and our very popular rustic table skirt.  For desserts?  Our Mini Apple Pies, Chocolate Covered Oreos, and Chocolate Covered Apples had to make an appearance.  We made an apple for each dwarf and an oh so special apple for Snow White.

Here is the team of incredible individuals that participated in this amazing project.
Set Design & Decor:   Country Girl Collections
Dessert Table:  The Candy Brigade
Stationary:  AvantGarde Design
Flowers: HGK Design
Make Up:  All Dolled Up
Dress:  Bliss Bridal
Models:  Meghan & Tom

We are sharing lots of pictures of the dessert table (we loved so many of them) as well as images of some of the other beautiful details from the shoot -  all taken by the amazing Marisa at Sassy Mouth Photography.  Enjoy!













We made a fancy little apple just for Snow White.  The apple was displayed on our handmade rustic swing, which we hung from manzanita branches.



















Seven mini apple pies..........one for each dwarf.

The Candy Brigade: Hartford & Spingfield Bridal Expos

We had a fun couple of weeks showcasing our stylish sweets at the Hartford & Springfield Bridal Expos.  Jenks Productions puts together a great show packed with some of the most talented people in the the industry.   We had an awesome time talking to all of the  sweet couples along with their fabulous family & friends.
For both shows, we displayed one of our most sophisticated & sparkling tables, The Glammy.  The Glammy is always elegantly dressed in white tulle and loads of crystals & bling.  We styled the table in classic black & white & loaded it with some of our most beautiful sweets, including Chocolate Covered Pretzels & Oreos, Rock Candy Sticks with Bling, Gumball Necklaces & the oh so popular Chocolate Covered Apples.

We also brought along jumbo cupcakes & de
licious mini apple pies.  Each mini pie is homemade with a pound of Granny Smith apples.   Did we say "mini"?   

Here are some pics from the show..
Our Chocolate Covered Apples are so popular.  Each Granny Smith was dipped in caramel & white chocolate.   We topped them off with some Candy Brigade sparkle & bling.  Beautiful & tasty!








Our signature Rock Candy Sticks with Bling
At the show, we met so many couples that were opting for cupcakes in lieu of cake for their wedding.  We love this idea!  Cupcakes can be dressed up beautifully and guests love them because they can take their dessert  home.  Just like all of our other sweets, our cupcakes are personalized to match the couple's wedding colors & style. 
How fancy are these gumball necklaces?   Adding a few of these pretty little jewels to your candy table looks fabulous
All of our candy & dessert tables come with custom favor bags.   Once the table opens, guests grab a favor bag & fill it up with all of their favorite sweets.     What an awesome wedding favor!
These personalized  Whirly Pops are a great addition to the candy buffet.

These mini apple pies make great wedding & shower favors.  We place each pie in a beautifully decorated box - you pick the color & design.  Each pie box includes a fork & a knife, or 2 forks and a knife if you're giving out one per couple.   Guests love these!!!  We've been told that they have a hard time surviving the car ride home!









































We had such an awesome time at the Hartford & Springfield Bridal Expos this year!   The show was extremely successful for us.  We couldn't have done it without 2 of the best helpers - who did a wonderful job working our booth with us.  Thank you Angela & Erin!  We hope you will join us again next year!

Beach Bling Candy Table

As the weather gets colder, we thought we would share some images to remind us of summer.  We designed this gorgeous candy & dessert buffet for Angelica & Kevin's Beach Bling Wedding  held at The Water's Edge Resort & Spa in Westbrook, Connecticut.   The sweets table was styled around their wedding colors of green and brown.   The table was filled with candy and lots of Chocolate Covered Goodies - Pretzels, Strawberries, Apples and Oreos! 

We loved how well the table coordinated with Angelica & Kevin's gorgeous wedding.
