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.

Party Printables {banner, cupcake toppers, signage, invitation, and food labels} are available at My Etsy Shop.

Candy + Sweet Treat Dessert Table {Mitzvah Madness}

I love what I do, and do what I love and this was one event that encompassed it all!  This Candyland Bat Mitzvah pulled out ALL the bells and whistles; I was honored to be part of it.  This is what over 20 feet of candy + desserts look like…

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.

{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.

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.

In need of a new color combination and/or a unique favor idea for your next event? Contact CW distinctive DESIGNS 908.309.7536 for ideas to customize your candy buffet and/or sweet treat buffet table.

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
