Red Sox Candy Buffet - Ethan's Bar Mitzvah

We were so thrilled when Lee & Jessica Goldberg contacted us to design a candy buffet for their son Ethan's Bar Mitzvah.  A few years ago, we created an 18 foot candy table for their daughter, Emily's fashion themed Bar Mitzvah at The Loading Dock in Stamford, so we were so happy when they reached out to us again.  Jessica and Lee throw the most amazing parties so we knew this would be a great event.

Ethan's Bar Mitzvah was held at the Ritz Carlton in White Plains, New York. The Ritz was completely transformed into Fenway Park for the night.  There were table centerpieces made with vintage baseball bats, a ticket booth for the table seating, vintage lockers, a dugout with gift bags for the guests, a clubhouse and even a Green Monster bar.  It was perfection.   Ethan's candy buffet was pretty sweet too.  We used vintage baseballs, gloves and bats on the table and filled the 12 foot candy buffet with Cracker Jacks, Chocolate Covered Baseball Oreos, Big League Chew and more.   

Take a look at Ethan's Vintage Red Sox Candy Buffet.....

Since only half of The Candy Brigade was available for the party, I had to get an assistant for the night.  The party was on Valentine's Day and we were going to be hanging at the Ritz Carlton, so I thought it would be a good idea to bring my better half (who happens to be the  biggest New York Yankees fan that I know).  










Thanks for checking out Ethan's Red Sox Themed Candy Buffet.  Please contact us at thecandybrigade@cox.net if you would like information on how we can sweeten up your next event.  The Candy Brigade is based in New England, but will travel ANYWHERE for a fabulous party!

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....

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 thecandybrigade@cox.net.  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.

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.......

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.

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.
