I have to admit, until we received our professional photos back from our photographer I had absolutely no idea what our sweetie table looked like. From the minute we arrived at our venue with our boxes stuffed with wedding paraphernalia the staff completely took over the job of decorating the marquee. They did a wonderful job and really paid attention to my comments and instructions (I wasn’t too bossy, promise!) They didn’t set up our sweetie table until later and by the time the evening had rolled around I was too busy dancing to think about sweets! We had loads of comments about how yummy everything was and there is plenty of Facebook evidence that the Starbucks sweetie holders were a hit. The next morning all that remained were crumbs, empty vases, wrappers and the odd gummy lying around so I think from this I can assume it was a hit!
As well as a variety of sweets (Jelly Belly Beans, Flying Saucers, Hershey’s Kisses, Haribo and popcorn) we also had yummy mini vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from Blue Door Bakery and some delicious Lebanese sweets supplied from Has’ Dad.
I was so thrilled when I saw the pictures, I loved how our little DIY painted letters looked on the table and the hanging felt “H & L” Suzie made for us. Everything looked exactly how I had imagined it to. I’d spent time before the wedding planning what vases would contain what sweets and how they might be arranged on the table, obviously this was time well wasted but it doesn’t matter – I loved how it turned out!
