Birthday Candy and Dessert Buffet Table

Candyland Birthday Pink Candy Buffet Station The eye CANDY of the evening came as the guests exited the nightclub and entered the bar that was closed down and solely devoted to the table of goodies.  They were greeted by a heavenly table of sweets, designed and executed by CW distinctive DESIGNS.  The Candy and Sweet Treat Dessert Table, logo, and displayed artwork coordinated together.

I was so honored to be able to design the labels and graphics for the table myself, as well as provide the ideas for the artwork pieces that were showcased, featuring the guest-of honor.

Every single element of the table was precisely thought through, coordinating with the theme and cohesively bringing the event together.

|Go Green | Martitime Parc Wedding Candy Table

Going in the books as one of my favorite weddings of 2011 fell on 9.10.11.   What an awesome wedding date for such an extravagant event! This wedding was the start, for what I hope, as a long-lasting collaboration with TROIS EVENTS, Kasal NY Event Planning + MPW Media & Photography + KMG.  The candy popped and so did the green embellished details.  It was set inside of Martime Parc, a modern venue overlooking the Hudson, offering a perfect view of the September 11th Freedom Tower Memorial and lights.

{Trains, Planes, and Automobiles} Birthday Party

 

 I am very excited to share my son’s first birthday party with you today!  The most difficult task was wrapping my head around the idea that it was for my son who was turning ONE already…where does the time go???  We decided to go with the transportation theme of “Trains, Planes, and Automobiles.”  The colors featured were bright and bold (royal blue, red, yellow, aqua, green, and yellow). 

 It all started with the invitation, a little DIY project that I promise to share when the next few crazy months calm down!  They were plane tickets that featured each young guest’s name.  

DÉCOR:
I had several embellishments that coordinated with the theme.

Location 1 Featured the gablebox “goodie bags” for the kids and a huge tabletop gumball machine.  Each goodie bag was customized for the kids’ ages, including items such as car-themed bubbles, railroad-crossing bubblegum tape, books, rubber ducks atop trains, planes, and autos, and car stickers.

Location 2 It included “Baby Bites” that were served in themed cardstock in a cone display.  Treats for the babies included yogurt bites, organic fruit purees, cheerios, and peanut, butter, and jelly. 

Location 3 Sweet Treat Dessert Table. Featuring themed desserts and some other goodies, such as strawberry mascarpone shortcake, Oreo cheesecake cupcakes, traffic light brownies, and much more.  Candies included: color-coordinating jelly beans, gummies, and race car candy kabobs.

 

MORE DETAILS:
– Water bottle wrappers coordinating with the theme and colors

– Small train, plane, and automobile toys placed on tables as accents

– Balloon bouquets with the dessert, food, and favor table

– A mini blow-up swimming pool filled with play balls (turned out to be the hit of the day with the little ones)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Candy Buffets {Candy Land Inspiration}

Everybody needs a little fun in their lives! Let’s have amusement with a Candy Land Dream…The inspiration came from wall stickers I found online at Wall Sticker Outlet.

CW distinctive DESIGNS can work with any theme that you need, but, this time, we are bringing the theme to you… Candy Land!  What screams Candy Land more than a candy buffet or dessert table to satisfy your sweet tooth?

Nostalgia candy is a necessity, from the wild flavors of gummy bears to some of Willy Wonka’s famous creations.  Boardwalk candy doesn’t always have to be offered at the boardwalk.  Garnish your event with some favorites!

Caramel popcorn and brightly-colored whirly pops can be presented in our new lollipop display.

Cotton candy will be sure to please both the young and old, and we did not forget your neighborhood ice cream man’s explosive treat of enjoyment…Pop Rocks!

You do not have to order a Screwball ice cream cone to get to your tiny two gumballs at the bottom.  Place an order for a tabletop gumball machine with CW distinctive DESIGNS, so your guests can keep chewing all day!

Sweet Treat Dessert & Candy Buffets {Purple and Grey Inspiration}

Plan to see some varying color combinations in 2011 weddings, showers, and other celebrations.   This year, the color range of 2010 will meet some new flavor creating a clean, chic design.  For example, the standard pink and mocha will be swapped out for purple and grey and the conventional sage and brown will be replaced with green and yellow.

If I was better with a camera, I could visually share some of my {Purple & Grey Inspiration} with you.  I never have it handy when it is most needed!  

My Inspiration:

First, a fall wedding I attended last October… 

It was the first time I saw someone play with purple hues and do it very well.  From the backdrop lighting to the colored rock candy and signature cocktail of the evening, the colors of eggplant and plum garnished the reception venue.   It was playful and fresh without being too loud and swanky.  With a touch of femininity, it accentuated the bride without overshadowing the groom.

Then, it was time to paint my own bedroom…

I splashed a daring grey-toned paint up on the walls with some hesitation.  The result: a clean, sharp appearance as it popped next to the thick, white molding. 

After this inspiration, what I ended up with was a visually-appealing color combination: purple and grey.
