Bachelorette Emily Maynard’s Candy Dessert Table for Ricky

I was  obsessed with this season of the Bachelorette!  How could you not love Emily Maynard, the sweet, pretty Southern single mom and her beautiful daughter Ricky.  So when I saw Life & Style magazines feature on Ricky’s Glam Camp theme birthday I couldn’t wait to share. 

Designed by Anders & Ruff, the super talented team of party stylists in Charlotte, NC, this party had lots of girly details with a camp theme twist.  Bright pink, purple and green lanterns decorated the yummy dessert table.  Guests munched on macaroons and s’mores cupcakes and painted wooden birdhouses.  Sounds like the kind of glamping we would totally love! 

Red, White & Blue! July 4th Candy Buffet

I love the fourth of july!  Grilling out with friends, fireworks… and all the fun parties of course!  We had a very busy week styling celebrations for several patriotic themed events.

I love how the red, white and blue candy just pops!  So classic

The patriotic cake pops were a big hit.  We filled the candy jars with lots of yummy candies-  vanilla sprinkled taffy, cherry sours, crunch bars, almond joys, marshmallows, sour chewy stars, swirl pops, and lots more.

The kids really loved the smores bar.  We set out a variety of sprinkles and toppings for them to stick their melted

marshmallows in.  So much fun!

I’m so in love with everything about this party!   A Burberry inspired Christening for a little boy with a gorgeous dessert table and all the little details.  Those  tiramisu cups look just delicious.  This theme would be perfect for a baby shower, birthday or anything modern and preppy.  The red, tan and black color scheme is so classic and sophisticated, really stands out as a backdrop.

Ribbons & Ruffles Baby Shower from HWTM

How adorable is this baby shower!  I was instantly smitten when I saw the sweet little dessert bar.  All the pretty pinks and ruffles, (sigh!)  Makes you really want to have a little baby girl or at least a soon to be mother to shower with something this pretty.

Sweet Event Design for Becky’s Fund Gold Cup

I could hardly wait to share the pics from our most recent adventure!  The Gold Cup Race is Virginia’s big Derby, bringing out all of Washington, Virginia and Maryland in their biggest hats and brightest preppy best for a day of equestrian excitement.  We had the pleasure of working with Becky’s Fund this year, designing  two sweet displays for the general admission and VIP tents they host.  Becky’s Fund is a national non-profit organization focused on domestic and dating violence awareness and education.  The Gold Cup “Investing in Hope” event was the 6th Annual Fundraiser organized by Becky and her team and draws a crowd of over a thousand to raise money, mix and mingle. 

The VIP dessert bar we designed was filled with decadent desserts.  Cake bites, chocolate truffles, cinnamon rolls, donuts, shortbread cookies and lots more spread across a yellow and black themed table setting with a beautiful yellow  floral centerpiece.



Glassine bags were labeled with Becky’s Fund logo.  Popcorn bags wrapped in yellow and green gingham filled planter tiers at each end of the table. 


For the General Admission table we built a six foot horse topiary as the centerpiece and draped him with Becky’s Fund logo.  Yellow and green candies filled glass apothecary jars and displays of cookies, desserts and sweets planked each end.    Baskets of candy packs with business cards and Becky’s logo on the table were quickly scooped up by guests.  We made 1000 packs and they completely gone within a few hours! 


Meeting new people, noshing on the spread Becky’s Fund put out and sipping mint juleps!

We had so much fun and took lots and lots of photos!  Big thanks to our Sweet Assistants Lexie and Alexandra for being fabulous promotional models! 


Please go to Becky’s Fund  (beckysfund.org) to  support a great cause and check out all of the wonderful events they host.   Thank you to Becky and her incredible team of people who put together this years event.

Last week we had the pleasure of working with an awesome group of people celebrating their companies quarterly success.  BMC Software designs software solutions that help companies manage their business services and applications.  We created a dessert bar to treat their team members and cap off a long day of conference meetings.  Guests dug into a delicious sprawl of donuts, cake bites, caramels, chocolates and more!   Take home boxes  filled with popcorn, gummies, and chocolate candies were given out at the end.   The party was awesome and we really had an amazing time with a wonderful group of people.   Check out the pics….
