Sweets & Treats: Exotic Elegance

Last week I posted a preview of a Sweets & Treats Table that I was working on for a celebration.(And yes..I had to taste test the gumballs, just to make sure they tasted as good as they looked.:-)) I designed a festive table that spoke to the couple's Caribbean heritage. I brought it to life with a vibrant color palette of yellow, purple and orange, and incorporated the exotic flower birds of paradise, palm leaves and floating candles for a touch of elegance. To say the least, the couple loved every bit if it, but I think their guests loved it even more!
Take a look...




Check out the background, the centerpieces overflowed with exotic tropical blooms! I know it's dark..Hopefully I can get my hands on some pro pics to share.
















Ok check out the adults.. the poor kids were at the back and couldn't even get their little hands in! LOL!


Is there a reason this take out container couldn't close? Too much candy for one person, that's why.

Love this color combo! Also, my favorite detail is the twizzlers displayed around in the inside of the container, instead of up and down. Makes it look super chic!
