Sweet by RSVP to Me: Edible Party Favors!

“Don’t forget your favor!” We’ve all attended and/or hosted celebrations where favors are given out at the end as a small way of saying thanks for coming! If you could choose what the favor would be at the end of your next party, what would it be?

I bet you didn’t say one of these: candle, matches, coasters, key chain, mini picture frame, hand soap, seeds, bookmark, playing cards, mug, shot glass, letter opener, or trinket box. Instead, I bet you’d chose something that you can EAT! Who doesn’t love a tasty treat?

This is why candy buffets are becoming popular for all kinds of celebrations! A candy buffet is a gorgeous display of candy that is personally designed to complement the theme and/or colors of your event. Guests fill up bags with goodies to eat on the spot or take home with them!

Take a peek into two candy buffets that we have set up recently… the first was for a First Communion celebration.IMG_4511a  IMG_4518a IMG_4521a IMG_4525a IMG_4526a IMG_4534a IMG_4539a

And this one for a special Bat Mitzvah celebration!

No matter what the occasion, a candy buffet is an awesome option! Consider contacting us for your next event, whether it be a wedding, bridal/baby shower, bar/bat mitzvah, birthday, anniversary, graduation, holiday, first communion, sweet sixteen/quinceanera, welcome home, or bon voyage celebration. We would love to design and assemble a candy buffet that is just right for your special event!

Something Sweet to Welcome their Long-Awaited Sweetheart!

I was honored when Emily, of Emily Photography, asked for my help as she was planning a “Welcome Home” party for their recently adopted daughter, Lyla. I was beyond happy for this amazing family! I just have to share a glimpse into their story…

I met Emily back in 2013 at a wedding that we were both working and we hit it off right away! I learned a bit about her that evening … how she had two adorable and spunky boys at home, but a piece of her heart was overseas. Emily and her husband were in the process of adopting Lyla from Africa. They knew it would be a long and difficult journey, but had no idea of the emotional roller coaster that was in store for them over the next 2 years.

Emily and I stayed in touch, and every time I saw or spoke with her, I hoped for good news on the adoption front! I was excited with her when gains were made, and when Emily went to meet and visit with Lyla for the first time. But, I shed tears on her behalf when I heard of delays and the roadblocks they faced in trying to bring their daughter home. I stood in awe of Emily and her family as they worked through each hardship and sacrificed so much of their time, energy, and resources to do whatever they could to bring this sweet girl home to her forever family.

That’s why, over TWO YEARS later, I was SO THRILLED to learn that Lyla was finally HOME! This was certainly something to CELEBRATE!

So a princess-themed celebration was planned! Emily chose some of her favorite colors, pink and gold, and asked for my help with glittery invitations and a table full of gorgeous goodies for the party! I had so much fun with this custom invitation design, and choosing sweet treats for all of the guests to take home as favors. I loved seeing pictures from this event, especially Lyla’s incredible SMILE! She is where she belongs and you can see it all over her face!

I am over-the-moon excited for this special family, especially Emily, whose heart is whole again! (And is NOW bursting with love and joy as they look forward to welcoming another baby boy into their family very soon!) I LOVED working with them for this special event, and I look forward to watching their family grow in numbers and LOVE for one another.

Glassware, Tags and Candy…Oh My!

So you’re thinking of having a gorgeous candy buffet at your next event? What a great idea! Oh??? What’s that? You’re thinking of doing it yourself to save money? Great!!! 

It’s fairly simple really…all you need is a table, some jars, candy and labels, right? Sadly, NO!

Agreeably, it’s an amazing idea, brings happiness to all your guests and brings the kid out of every adult attending. This is by far not the place to try to DIY to save money.  Between tables, decorations, glassware, supplies, tags/labels and of course the candy, with so much involved, it is not only time consuming, but gets extremely costly. Leave this one to the pros. Companies that offer such services are able to supply these items for far cheaper than you can on your own. We already have the tables, glassware and decorations in stock; therefore will be cheaper to use then buying your own. Since us “sweet” companies do this all the time, things like the professional tags/labels that will all be color coordinated and the candy which will be obtained with wholesale prices will come at a fraction of the cost.

With the day of the event finally here, I’m sure you will have all the free time possible to set up the table properly, paying attention to every tiny detail to ensure the professional look you undoubtedly saw in a magazine or online….oh, no?? You don’t have that free time?? Your candy buffet vendor has nothing else to do that day but to cater to all your candor needs. 

So don’t skimp out when it comes to bringing out the inner child in your guests, give them that thrilled feeling they have been missing for years!
