Blue and Green Candy Store themed Candy Buffet by Sweet Event Design
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.

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!

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!

Want something special to impress your guests and set your event apart from all the rest?
Candy buffets are the hottest new trend for weddings, corporate events and special occasions. Drawing the eye and delighting the tongue, a candy buffet serves as a spectacular centerpiece and gets your guests up and mingling.
Colors and themes are carefully coordinated with a selection of sweets to create the perfect display and leave a lasting impression. Custom printed bags and containers give a personal touch to celebrations and provide excellent exposure for brands and corporate marketing.
Whether your tastes are sleek and modern or you prefer something more whimsical, we can design a candy buffet that truly captures the essence of your event.
I commissioned Sweet Event Design to create a corporate display for a local charity event. The presentation of my product and logo exceeded my expectations. The exceptional design drew people to my silent auction display and helped attract bids. I will definitely be using Sweet Event Design for any other branding or personal events that I may host in the future.

Thank you so much for the amazing candy display you girls set up for my daughter’s birthday! It was beautiful and more than we could have ever imagined. Not only did the kids love the buffet but so did all the parents. I don’t think a single person left without a goodie bag and how clever of you to create the customized bags! I can’t wait to see what you come up with for our next party!

Thanks again so much for your hard work on this event for us. The buffet looked amazing, and everyone is commenting on how much fun they had with the sweets. You should be really proud of how it turned out, and you should definitely put it up on your website! I wanted to pass along the links that have come through so far with the press. I think the first one is my favorite. Thanks again for all your help- you did an amazing job.
