Autumn elegance with a splash of fun was the theme for this candy table set up for Domenic and Christina's wedding at Hazelton Manor. The bride wanted a table filled with confection where the candy apples and carmels apples were the stars of the show. In order to showcase the hand dipped apples we featured them on amber cut-glass cake pedestals from Vintage Dish Rental. They also provided pretty amber depression glass candy dishes and matching plates to add a little more sparkle to the table.
It wasn't hard to play up the natural color scheme and elements of Autumn. Miniature pumpkins were displayed on long stemmed glass pieces and placed between candy jars. Pumpkin stems were decorated with yellow polka dotted grosgrain ribbon, brightly colored Fall leaves tucked underneath. To evoke a little glamour, risers and candy labels were decorated with rhinestones, and oversized sunflowers in white and varying shades of orange featured sequence centers.
Although most of the candy was yellow, orange or red, the flavour selection was huge to appeal to as many guests as possible. From Fall staples like candy corn and big foots to sour peaches and sour raspberries, Reeces Pieces and Hersey's Kisses, candy sticks and pixie sticks, yougurt dipped pretzels and yogurt dipped raisens, licorice, gumballs and a big favorite with young and old alike - chocolate dipped marshmallows. Sweet Love for everyone - but most especially for Christina and Domenic.
