A Prepster’s Christening |Candy Table|

CW distinctive DESIGNS specializes in dessert tables and candy buffets, but it is a great pleasure when we get to cross over to overall event designer.  I marvel over some details that  event planners/designers pull off, and definitely have an overwhelming appreciation for every detail that they think of and carry through on.  I realize some people won’t ever notice the coordinating patterns on the paper items, or the placement of the favor box, or even the complimentary fabric used throughout a venue, but I do…AND I LOVE it!!

I always create an inspiration board for my events for various reasons.  1. It helps the client to step into my mind and understand my vision.  2. It helps to keep all vendors that I use or bring in to be on the same page.  3.  (Most importantly) It helps me coordinate all of the fabric, ribbons, embellishments, treats, paper, etc that I am using.

My vision for this Christening was classy country club, so it was perfect that we were set up in the sunroom of the venue.  The whites were crisper and the colors were more vibrant.  I love patterns; for that reason, I used polka dots because it was a baby event, the chevron because it shouts, “Modern!” and focused on argyle to highlight my “prepster” vision.

|Bridal Shower| Heavenly Dessert Table

When Lindsay, from Cakes-By-Me, contacted me to setup a candy table for her dear friend’s bridal shower, I knew it was going to be alongside her delectable dessert spread.  Yet, I never knew this event would turn into a sweet treat haven. Another fun sweet treat dessert table collaboration between CW distinctive DESIGNS and Cakes-By-Me.

I quickly got started on the paper goods (labels, menus, cupcake toppers, signs, etc) because it needed to be cohesive and capture the  shimmery, clean essence she envisioned with white, silver and muted pink.  Check back in on our ETSY SHOP for these party printables; they should be ready for purchase soon. Quatrefoil is everywhere on the wedding scene, and I am obsessed!  Inevitably, this was going to be the basis to all of my printables created.

White Chinese take-out containers were used to store all of the guests’ goodies, and additional bags were readily available for the “overflow” of edible treats.

Desserts included mik shake shooters, cupcakes, chocolate dipped Rice Krispie Treats, ombre cakes, banana split bites,  cake pops, champagne popsicles, chocolate covered Oreos, a wide variety of candy favorites, and even more…  Check out our facebook page for even more highlights from the candy table that day.

Although the desserts caught much of the crowds’ attention, the home-cooked food did not go unnoticed.  The guests had a large array of dip options to choose from, sweet and sour kielbasa (close to this Polish girl’s heart), pulled pork sliders,  cheese and antipasto kabobs, etc.

Lindsay and her friends created place settings with silver chargers, and wine glasses in order to create some elegance.  Moreover, beautiful greenery and large flower pots were brought in to encircle the tented area.

|European-Inspired| Sweet Treat Dessert Table

Last year, my family vacationed in Portugal and Spain to visit extended family and take pleasure in the culture.  Thus this European-Inspired Sweet Treat Dessert Table was motivated by our enjoyment of the delectable desserts we savored and the simple, yet stylish atmosphere we experienced.  The special event was a dual baptism for my son and neice, for whom I am honored to be a Godmother for.  The neutral color scheme consisted of gold, champagne and white hues; it coordinated well with the venue’s warm yellow tones. And we love the venue: La Fontana’s Restaurant🙂

I come from a family of “foodies,” thus the focal point of the room became the dessert table. Some European-inspired desserts included our family’s favorites: Pasteis de Nata, a Portuguese crème pastry that melts in your mouth, and Mille Figlio, what the Americans know as “The Italian Napoleon.”    Also included were French Macarons, Meringue cookies, and Ferrero Roche chocolates.  Kid and adult favorites, such as Snickers, chocolate covered Oreos, grapefruit/pineapple gummies, chocolate caramel and pretzels rounded out the display.

Each guest was given a gold tote to take some home as an additional favor.

The beverage table included Grandma’s homemade Sangria, which always proves to be a success, as well as red and white wines imported from France.  We love Hand Picked Selections, Inc!

A scroll pattern and a chic cursive font were used for the labels.  The flower centerpiece stayed true to the European tablescape simplicity, as they were Pellegrino and wine bottles spray painted gold and champagne showcasing white hydrangeas with baby’s breath.  Champagne pintuck runners were used atop the tables.

Continue viewing for images and details as told by Cheryl

The INSPIRATION for the sweet treat table was a modern teal and brown invitation ordered from Tiny Prints and a color-coordinating cardstock that was chic and fun!  The centerpiece of the sweet treat dessert table was an unbelievable 4-tiered cupcake stand displaying my FAVORITE current OBSESSION – sTuFFeD cUpCaKeS!  I made cupcake wrappers, and the cupcakes were adorned using DIY toothpick labels.

Candy choices included: dark chocolate covered pomegranates & blueberries, chocolate covered pretzels, Ferrero Rondnoir chocolates, gummy cola bottles, and sour gummy raspberries

Guests were able to enjoy the desserts throughout the celebration, and take some home for an enjoyable favor in a frosted cupcake box that were sealed with a petal hook.

The DIRTcups were personalized with petal-shaped cut-out stickers. I designed and created all the stickers and labels. I love using varying shapes and sizes to add to the design! 

Caramel popcorn clusters filled the homemade cardstock candy cones.

Other dessert treats included: chocolate-dipped hazelnut wafers, brownies, Reese’s dessert bars, & cream puffs
