Colorful Candy Buffet!

Colorful Candy Buffet & Dessert Bar!

The colorful candy buffet was a hit — little kids and kids at heart {our adult guests} enjoyed candy and homemade sweets designed especially for the bride & groom. Our display was created for 100 guests and could easily be replicated on a smaller scale for a birthday party, dessert night or shower!

Brownie bites dipped in milk chocolate and rolled in candied sugar made delicious finger food desserts, and brownie pops dipped in white chocolate and rainbow sprinkles were a no-mess alternative. Cupcake stands towering with chocolate & confetti buttercream cupcakes were made by the mother of the groom, and I decorated with white sugar and gumdrops to match.

Sneak Peak: Colorful Candy Buffet

Candy Buffet Sneak Peak

I’m so excited about a candy buffet I just finished designing that I thought I’d post a quick sneak peak! All of the pictures with complete How-Tos will be up next week — but here’s a sample of the fun I had!

I mentioned earlier that two friends of ours are hosting a second reception in our local San Diego for guests that couldn’t travel out to the Michigan wedding. The candy buffet will serve as the dessert station for the evening instead of another formal cake — and because the celebration is centered around lawn games and other fun activities, the dessert bar had to be cheerful and bright, too!

Gingerbread Bikini Babes

Gingerbread Ice Cream Cookies

Since summer is officially over, and the cool winds of fall are beginning to sneak their way in, blend the changing seasons into one finger-licking, summer-meets-fall dessert to enjoy. These ice cream cookie sandwiches are adorably cute and so delicious!  I’m just thinking of all of the wonderful themes you could fit this idea into — nevermind the option of using a different cookie cutter.Thanks, Martha Stewart Living, for all of your clever ideas… and for showing us how to make these delicious bikini babes!

Ice Cream (summer) + Gingerbread (fall) = Year Round LOVE.
