Best of 2012 {Candy and Dessert Tables}

Candy Buffets

This past year we have so much to be thankful for:)  The business flourished, we gained many new friends, worked with some fabulous people in the field, and welcomed Baby Gavin into the world!  Looking back through some photos of our displays it was difficult to choose a Top Ten.  Some of our favorite displays didn’t even make the list, but sometimes it is more about the entire experience.  Perhaps it was the appreciative client that desperately needed our help, the creative theme of the event, the team of collaborators that were involved, the first time we introduced a new dessert, or even for the actual guest-of-honor or charity that we were celebrating!  Whatever reason it may be, these were the top ten displays that we created this year:

10.  Rustic Wine Themed meets Intimate Wedding Elegance

9.  European-Inspired Dessert Table

8.  Annie Taintor Themed Bridal Shower Candy Table

{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)
