Janelle and Robert’s shower was this past Sunday and boy, did we have fun! More than anything, everyone was a on a tremendous sugar rush! The theme was candy land and as you can imagine… we had a blast planning the details! Janelle is a very hands-on bride and loves Google just about as much as I do. I research everything …. you thought I was bad, you have to meet this bride! Together, we have found the coolest things online! It was such a great pleasure being able to work with her and her family on the shower… I am looking forward to the wedding coming up in November. Stay Tuned, I will be sure to post the pictures of the wedding.
Truly…. Love is SWEET like CANDY!
At the shower venue, there was a platform that was placed center stage. Janelle and Robert wanted that area to be the main focus of the whole event. Therefore, we placed this Real Candy Store in the middle. The picture above is of the canopy that was made for the center of the display. It looked delicious!
The centerpiece cylinders were filled with monochromatic colored gum balls topped with pomanders of mini roses and finished with multi-colored dum dums. Also, Janelle found an amazing contact for hand painting glass items. She bought wine cups for the women and bear pisners for the men and had them hand painted with the lollipops from the invite… super whispie and colorful. To top of the table decor, mini candy tins were filled with rock candy and placed in front of every place setting.
White Chinese take out stations were placed at the corners of the tables for guests to get their candy to take home. Janelle and I thought most people would wait for dessert… we were SO wrong. The cocktail hour had just ended and the stations needed to be refilled again. Obviously, it was a crowd pleaser! I’m so glad they all enjoyed it!
Hands-on and Very crafty Janelle did this great photo book for guests to sign in. Once the couples went into the photo booth, they got a print out of their pictures. They went to this station and cut the strip of pictures and pasted them in this book. It was so much fun!
