Cinco de Mayo is only a few weeks away (and it’s on a Saturday this year – party on!), so it’s time to start planning your fiesta! A Mexican themed party is a super easy color-scheme to work with – stick to red, white and green (to go with the Mexican flag) for your main colors and add in a little yellow and orange to spice things up. Party City.
I came across this amazingly colorful dessert table from a birthday party while perusing Baby Lifestyles (an excellent resource if you’re searching for birthday or shower ideas!) and just had to share it. It has my most favorite thing: a super-duper colorful candy buffet! This candy rocks because the party planner has gotten maximum color out of a fairly minimum amount of candy. How’d she do it? Here’s what she.
Check out this amazing candy buffet and dessert table from BabyLifeStyles.com. The theme was “Sweet Pea” they used pretty yellow and pink decorations – what an adorable baby shower! Here’s a list of the candy that was used: Pink Whirlypops (we’d also suggest these Hammond’s Handmade Pink & Yellow Cotton Candy flavored Whirlypops too!) Unicorn Pops Cotton Candy Lemon-Heads Snow Almonds Hershey’s Bars Mini Pink and White M&Ms Twizzlers Cinnamon.
I was at a wedding about 8 years ago and the reception fare featured several coffee bars and dessert tables. This was a new concept back then, when all of us were agonizing over $50 or more per-head on fancy chicken and potatoes dinners for our 250 guests – where was this simple idea back then? According to Wedding101.net, dessert receptions and coffee bars are a wedding trend to watch.
