our wedding : sweets table





back in the days when i didn't know any better i could happily make a meal out of candy. somedays, i still don't know any better. depending on how you choose to look at it you could call me either a candy addict or candy connoisseur. i love the sweet stuff!

i wanted to share this love/obsession with our family + friends on our wedding day so we created this lovely, modern, and bright sweets table. sugar babies, banana runts, lemonheads and pineapple gummy bears provided bursts of yellow throughout. i had stacia at frosted cupcakery bake us up her splendidly delicious lemon, red velvet + vanilla cupcakes. delish.

my amazing husband built the cupcake stand in his wood shop (more amazing projects to come from that wood shop - stay tuned!) and i gocco'd the candy bags for everyone to take some yummies to go. our guests loved the sweets and we enjoyed snacking on the leftovers for the rest of the weekend.

i'm currently working on designing some fantastic sweets tables for two brides this fall. i can't wait to share the scrumptious photos! hooray for sugary sweets!

How beautiful! Did you order the candy online? If so, what distributor did you use? I am throwing a Bumble Bee Baby Shower and would love to do something like that...

Thanks!!!

where did you get the candy online from???

yes, please said...

@iris: a bumble bee shower will be so lovely. i used a combination of online sites like candy warehouse (www.candywarehouse.com, you can search by color!) and local places like smart & final and costco.
would LOVE to see pictures! have fun!

how funny...I plan on doing something nearly identical at my wedding in November - yellow, tons o' candy, cupcakes, lemons (will be the new last name, how perfect?!) and layers of ooey-gooey deliciousness - especially the rock candy! Thanks for the pics - saves me time of explaining this idea to my planner :)
