I LOVE sweets. They are my weakness. Especially chocolate! Any reason to celebrate will always be accompanied by some kind of sweet and a bubbly. It's an instant upper. I like to always have a candy table when hosting a party. I find it fun, colorful and oh so inviting. My guests immediately are drawn to it in a very playful way...like kids in a candy store!
There are tons of ways in which you could use candies as your centerpiece and make a statement that will sure leave your guests talking about your party. I personally have been inspired by Amy Atlas, from Amy Atlas Events in New York
She creates amazing sweets displays that I just adore! Her unique style makes her stand out from the rest. She uses a color theme for each design and transforms an ordinary table into a yummy work of art.
Mini cupcakes, taffies, cookies, jelly beans, m&m's, rock candies, truffles...all take centerstage, masterfully arranged and displayed in gorgeous crystal bases and tiers. All strategically placed to be decorative but also to tease your sweet tooth.
These sweets displays are the newest craze. Celebrities are throwing their kid's birthday parties, baby showers, bachellorette parties, weddings and just about any social event following this trend.
Here I am enjoying one of the mini cupcakes (deelish!) from Amy Atlas' creation at the 15th Anniversary of Martha Stewart Weddings. The theme for this event held at The Plaza in NYC, was pink and gold. Absolutely stunning!
Next time you're having a party, have fun creating a sweets table...it's the sweetest thing!
