Sweet Treats!

I have the biggest sweet tooth everr!
I can never pass up a piece of candy..
so naturally I would love to post up right next to the sweet treats at any wedding!

A sweet treat bar seems super easy to create and a great DIY project!
If I were to create one, some things I would include are:
-Pretty, cheap containers that can be used again around your home or your families home.
(renting is also an option..)
           HomeGoods would probs be a great place to begin the search!
           A neat way to spruce up the container is to add a fun ribbon matching your wedding colors.

-Some candies that were fun, bright, different, and of course, yummy!
-A fun fabric to cover the table and spotlight the sweets!
-Some decorative signs introducing the bar and the sweets around the table.
-Some plastic baggies and ties so the guests can take them home, or carry them around the reception!

My friend Ashley had a sweet treats bar at her wedding and it was AMAZING!!!!
She had everything from rock candy to soccerball sweets in honor of her soccer playin hubby!
My dad and I kept bringing our baggy back to stock up throughout the wedding.
It was a huge hit!

Here are a few pics of some pretty amazing sweet treat displays!
gifts favors, candy buffet
Love these colors! and what cute napkins!

I love that the ribbon is the accent colour to the coloured candy
Love the ribbon detail!

This has to be one of my favs!
I love the tall vases in the back with floating orchids and candles!
I also like how the candy is different, and the way they are displayed is so neat!
With the lollipops standing up in the containers!

We purchased some of the Susan G Komen m&ms to have out for the wedding, but we aren't quite sure if we will have a full blown candy bar..

We do have a super fun surprise for our guests!

Some pretty happy sticky faced kiddos are enjoying this treat at the fair....

After that post, I am headed down to the fridge to the stash of Crunch sticks!!!
