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!

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!

|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

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.
We provided Pink Frosted Cupcakes with custom cupcake toppers & cupcake wrappers

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

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!

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.

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.
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.

We provided a Chocolate Covered Caramel Apple for each of Snow White's seven special little guests, Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Happy, Bashful & Grumpy, along with Snow White's fancy red apple.

Our absolute favorite pic from the shoot......breathtaking! Thanks for checking out the photos. A special thank you to Marisa at Sassy Mouth and Anna at Country Girl Collections for inviting us to be a part of this magical shoot! We loved working with you and all of the other incredible vendors.
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 & delicious 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. More pics of the candy & dessert table 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!
