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:

|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.

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.

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.

Cheryl of CW distinctive DESIGNS is excited to*LauNch* the new Sweet Treat Dessert Table! This time it’s part of a teal & brown {Winter Wonderland-Inspired} Baptismal Celebration for her son.  Who better to test out the new edible craft, but her family and friends!

Tissue Pom Poms were attached to the wall to add dimension and color.  This DIY project tutorial is featured on CW distinctive DESIGNS’s blog.

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
