|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.

Sugar and Spice Baby Shower {Party Printables}

Lately, I have been blessed with the gift of new babies.  My second son was born; moreover, I became an AUNT to a precious baby girl!  This was one baby shower that I took extra attention to detail as it was for my sister and her first child.  Of course, the entire event was based around the delectable display of chocolate and candy located at the Sweet Treat Dessert Table created by CW distinctive DESIGNS.

{Carnival-Style} Candy Buffets

Recently CW distinctive DESIGNS was asked to create a carnival-themed candy buffet for a beautiful little girl’s Communion.   

Although the party’s colors included purples, pinks, and greens, the mother had an excellent idea to go in a different direction for the boldly-colored candy buffet table.  For a person who loves to coordinate everything, I had some reservations; but, it worked perfectly!  It brought some flair to an elegant event.  I felt this table was “blog-worthy” because of the fun factor, and wished to share some party ideas for others.  What a unique theme for an outdoor party,  rustic location or, even, a simple backyard barbecue?

Some simple carnival elements were used in “distinctive” ways.  What is a carnival without cotton candy and popcorn?  Freshly-spun cotton candy was served in a package adorned with a personalized label.  Brightly-colored red popcorn was served in large carnival-styled bins that featured the carnival stripes that were used to tie everything together.

Candy Kabobs made with gummy sour belts topped with marshmallow hot dogs intrigued many people.  Peanuts were used in displaying the flowers.

Gianna’s sign highlighted the striped awning to mimic a “Big Top” tent.  

Additional embellishments included raffle tickets, candy button sticks, whirly and unicorn pops, a gumball machine, and LEDs that highlighted the table as the venue’s lights were dimmed.
