A Candy Buffet with a Twist

This Sunday we had the opportunity to work with Chesna & Matt for their "Old Hollywood with a Modern Twist" wedding! It was simply elegant, and a truly classy wedding. More to come on the wedding later....

Chesna and Matt set up a candy buffet for their guests late in the evening that was different from the usual jars of sweets that we typically see. They had containers of:

~Hershey's Kisses

What does this sound like to you? Read the list again & think about it....TRAIL MIX! How fun is that! We saw so many guests snacking on this sweet & salty delight during dancing. Everyone loved it!

Chesna and her super-creative mom, Julie, also created the bags for guests to fill with the goodies, and they were an adorable addition to the table. They purchased small white paper bags, and then found a super-cute wedding themed rubber stamp and stamped each bag. How creative! This is a great money saving idea, rather than purchasing pre-designed bags.

The table was displayed beautifully. Apothecary jars of different shapes & sizes held the treats, each container had a silver scoop with a tiny ribbon tied to its handle, and the bags were displayed on a gorgeous silver tray. Once we had set all of the "necessaries" we added the bridesmaids' bouquets, photos, and a cute 'Thank You' note from the bride & groom to complete the set up.

Think outside the box when it comes to things that you are seeing more frequently, like the candy buffet. What's your favorite snack, and how can you turn that into a personal touch for your wedding?

How have you taken an idea for your wedding & given it a sweet twist?
