Sweetie Table

December 9th, 2010 — 9:00am

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.

Purple Sweetie Table

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!

Sweets glorious sweets!

Sweetie shopping – possibly one of the most fun wedding jobs!  We have a sugary mixture of Haribo, lollies, Jelly Belly Beans, Marshmallows, Flying Saucers, Hershey’s and Celebrations.   Our candy table will also feature some mini cupcakes supplied by Sarah at Blue Door Bakery

Hopefully our guests will enjoy the extra treats!

s.w.e.e.t.s!

July 19th, 2010 — 9:30am

If you have seen my tweets from this weekend you’ll know that I’ve been busy crafting again!  With help from my Mom, we painted our “sweets” sign for our candy table.  I picked up the letters from HobbyCraft some time ago for around 99p each and the paint were tester pots from Homebase which cost me about £2 each.

(I’ve also used the paint on another project that I can’t share until after the wedding… sorry, all I can say is it might have something to do with bridesmaids and it might have something to do with presents!)

Unfortunately we had run out of plastic gloves so it got a little messy!

Ok, a lot messy!!

We used brushes to makes sure all the tight spots were completely covered with two coats of paint and then used a roller brush to smooth over the fronts of the letters.

I’m so pleased with the results!  It took us around half an hour from start to finish including waiting time for them to dry.

The plan now is to tack them on to a piece of wood so the letters can stand up on our candy table.

Cyber Candy

March 16th, 2010 — 1:06pm

Has and I had to get the bus into work this morning as my poor car (Bebe) is visiting the garage.  The stop for our bus is the other side of the town from my office so I rarely venture that way.  It was a blessing in disguise, we stepping off the bus to see a shop we had never seen before, in Birmingham at least.

Cyber Candy

If you’ve never visited or even heard about Cyber Candy, it’s a shop that sells sweets, chocolates, drinks, biscuits and loads more from around the World.  In particular (for us!) American candy!

Hershey’s Kisses, Milk Duds (my favourites!), Lucky Charms, Mountain Dew, Twinkies, Jolly Ranchers, Twizzlers to name but a few of the things we over dose on when we’re in the USA.

Hayley’s sister Kirsty bought us back some Hershey’s Kisses on her recent trip to New York and now if we think we need any more, we have a store right on our door step!  Depending on the cost it would be nice to be able to have a few more American treats on our candy table.

I was also thinking I could pick up a few treats for our ushers. I think they will go really well with the American lager/beer idea.

I also happen to know that one of my bridesmaids has a bit of a thing for Fruit Loops….

Hugs ‘n Kisses!

March 8th, 2010 — 8:27pm

Hayley’s sister Kirsty went on holiday to New York last week and was sent away with the job of picking us up a few packets of silver and purple Hershey’s Hugs and Kisses.  Like a star she didn’t let us down!

Thanks Kirsty!  The problem now is hiding them away safe so they’re not gobbled up before November!

Candy Table Vases

March 2nd, 2010 — 11:01am

These are the type of vases I want for our candy table.

from here
Especially the glass jars.  I love them! I know Confetti have similar glass sweet jars available for £14.99, I’ll probably pick up a couple of those soon.  I also can’t help but think how cute they’d look in our home after the wedding too!  
We already have large Martini vases for our centre pieces so I think a couple of smaller ones on the candy table would go really well.  I picked up our Martini vases from Excelsior Wholesale, my Sister-in-law to be, Amanda and I spent hours searching the internet for reasonably priced Martini vases and came across this company who happen to be about a 15 minute drive from us!  I ordered everything online and went to pick it up.  They were so helpful and had everything ready for me to pick up when I go there.
We have to go back to pick up 2 more Martini vases and a couple rolls of organza so I will probably take a look at their selection of vases to see if I can find anything else for our sweets to sit in!

Have you seen this purple dessert table from Shauna Young Dessert Tables?

Amazing purpley goodness!

These flower flags are too precious!

So, so pretty!  If my dessert table looks half as good as this I’ll be a happy, happy girl!

Purple Pot

December 20th, 2009 — 8:04pm

I picked this up from Homebase the other week when I was in search of silver decorations for our Christmas table

I’m thinking of filling it with sweets and putting it on the candy table.  It will be nice because I can use it in our house after the wedding too.
