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.

White and Pink Candy Buffet: Bridal Shower

This ones for the girly girls that love all things pretty! Take a look at the glamorous candy & dessert buffet we created for our friend Rosanna's Bridal Shower at the Glastonbury Hills Country Club.  Rosanna surprised her guests with a fabulous sweets table which was blinged out in white, silver and hot pink.   The table was covered in chocolate -  Chocolate Covered Apples, Pretzels and Oreos to name a few.  We also supplied Cupcakes, our popular Mini Apple Pies as well as lots of delicious candies.  Rosanna's friends and family loved the stylish little treats.

Old Hollywood Candy & Dessert Table: Gold and White

What is it about "Old Hollywood" that still leaves us breathless and longing for the good old days?  Glamour never seems to go away, it just changes faces. This is what we think of when we look into the Hollywood some of us can only dream about........lots of glamour and glitz, from feathers to large broches and diamonds everywhere. 

We designed this Gold and White Candy and Dessert Table for a fabulous Old Hollywood photo shoot organized by the talented Julie of Jewel Photography.  The amazing team:

Venue:   The Marquee
Candy and Dessert Table:  The Candy Brigade
Dresses:  The Wedding Dress
Men's Apparel:    Modern Formals
Table Centerpieces:   Candi's Floral Creations

Black and White Candy Table: Wadsworth Mansion

We're so excited to share pictures of the Black and White Candy Buffet we designed for Jeff and Erica's wedding this past weekend.  We loved how the candy table turned out.  It fit in perfectly at Jeff and Erica's elegant wedding reception at The Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown.
 
The couple selected mainly white and silver candies and chocolates for their candy buffet.  The table was filled with Jelly Beans, Hershey Kisses, Pearl Gumballs, Yogurt Raisins, Rock Candy, Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Chocolate Covered Oreos.  Jeff and Erica also selected some colored candy such as Sour Patch Gummy Bears and Caramel Creams.  As you will see, we found some creative ways to display these candies without sacrificing the look of the table. 
 
We would like to send a special thank you to Erica and Jeff for allowing us to be a part of their beautiful day.

Tiffany Themed Candy and Dessert Table: Part 2

We are LOVING the Tiffany Themed Candy & Dessert Table  that we created for the Hartford Bridal Expo.  We shared a few pictures of our table a few weeks ago, but we have SO MUCH more to share. 

Some of our favorite details include the handmade Tiffany Blue Backdrop, which we tufted and adorned with gems.  Do you want the truth?  We stayed up until 3:00 in the morning the night before the show making this fabulous backdrop.  I have to say, it was well worth it!    Take a look at the photos below to check out the backdrop and some of our other cute details. 

By the way, if you're interested in a candy table just like this, please contact us.  We can customize just about everything you see in this blog specifically for you and your event.

Rustic Candy Buffet for St. Clements Castle Wedding

Wow.....our second post of the day!  The holidays definitely put us a little behind with our blog. 

We are so excited to share photos of the rustic candy buffet we designed for a fall wedding at St. Clements Castle.  The couple, Jill and Felipe picked out some really fun candies for the candy table.  They had a perfect selection of sweet, sour and chocolate treats for their guests to enjoy. 

Take a look at the pictures and let us know what you think.  








 We provided White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Covered Oreos topped with the couple's initial.  The Oreos were displayed on our rustic stands.

Rustic Themed Candy & Dessert Table

We're so excited to share pictures of our Rustic Themed Candy & Dessert Buffet
that we created for a wedding at the Interlaken Inn  a few weeks ago.  For those of you that don't know, Interlaken Inn is a beautiful Country Inn and Resort located on a lake in Litchfield Hills, CT.   This place is gorgeous!   Our rustic themed candy buffet coordinated perfectly with this country setting.

For this event, we had the pleasure of working with LA Productions, a full service wedding coordination and event planning company based out of Long Island, NY.    We worked one-on-one, with the company's owner, Laura to design this beautiful candy table.   We truly enjoyed working with Laura - she really understood her clients' style and vision, which made our job that much easier.

The couple selected so many fun candies and treats - Chocolate Covered Twinkies and Devil Dogs, 15 dozen Chocolate Covered Oreos.  our popular Gumdrop Topiary Tree and Whirly Pop Display...and more.

Oh...We can't forget about the Candy Cigarettes, Pixy Stix and Fun Dip......is this bringing back some great childhood memories or what?






























Ok....who remembers Candy Cigarettes?

















































One of our favorite details was this Rustic Whirly Pop Display.


We separated the rainbow skittles into individual glass jars - mini spoons were provided.

















The Chocolate Covered Twinkies and Chocolate Covered Devil Dogs were displayed on rustic mirrors. Our vendor makes the best Chocolate Covered Twinkies and Devil Dogs!


For this event, we had rustic bags hand stamped with the couple's initials.




























Gumdrop Topiary Tree -  if you only knew how much time and effort goes into making this tree............
We placed the Chocolate Covered Oreos in these beautiful vintage stands.  We added a little bling to the stands (because that's how we roll)!




























Another oldie, but goodie......FUN  DIP!

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 sleep....it'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......
