Have you gotten a toothache yet? No? Well this post is sure to give you one! Here is the next part of our collaboration with Aidreen Metz, of DecoPOMS.
Ava's Sweet Shoppe
Candy Table Elements
We really had fun designing this Candy Buffet to go with the Shabby Chic theme of the party. By keeping the table linen pink, the primary color of the party, we were still able to keep the look consistent. A variety of candy in pastel colors were used.
I built a custom "sweet shoppe" store front and used the printable banners that Aidreen had ordered before I came on board. I usually make all the printables for the candy buffets I create. I did get a chance to do some design work by creating labels and editing little Miss. Ava's pictures that were displayed throughout the party.
Adding labels and ribbon to your candy jars is a great way to "dress" up the jars. Of course, I had to bling out each candy label!
I have to say these beautiful gumball pinwheels were ALL Aidreen! She sells these adorable candy tubes in her Esty shop [link to DecoPOMS's Etsy Shop at the bottom of the page]. She cut scrapbook paper and glued down the edges in order to form a pinwheel and glued a piece of candy to the pinwheel to serve as the bracket. She attached the pinwheel to a bamboo stick and glued it onto the adorable candy containers and BAM - Gumball Pinwheels! I love it!!!
In order to keep with the color theme, Dum Dum lollipops were wrapped in tissue and on the table they went. Wrapping candy is a great way to keep things consistent. I personally love dum dums because a large pack goes a long way.
Here are some more pictures to enjoy, including one of the birthday girl, Ava, and her beautiful and crafty Mama, Aidreen:
