Desserts In Style – Blue Crush

You have no idea how much I love to work with sweets and candy!!! One of my most recent creations was born when I saw an irresistible piece of furniture with a unique color: teal. Then, the occasion presented itself at the Blue Crush event.


Ceremony Magazine invited their fabulous advertisers and friends in the wedding industry for a swanky soirée at North County San Diego’s latest luxury venue, The Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa. I was asked to participate with a candy station and I had a blast designing it!


The color palette featured aqua, turquoise, teal and sapphire blue with touches of ivory and lemon. Different types of candy were displayed in containers of all sorts and labeled with seashell-themed tags that were tied with aqua and sapphire blue ribbon.


Candy included cotton candy sea salt taffy, blue raspberry gummi bears, blackberry jelly beans, Champagne jelly bubbles, milk chocolate balls, pearlized almonds, pina colada fruit sours and more.


I also added a surprise element with a turquoise welcome drink decorated with rock candy.

Linens were provided by Sweet Ribbon Events, while the “piece de resistance” (the buffet and hutch) was by Pow Wow Vintage Rentals – isn’t that piece wonderful?

The final touch was added by Embellishmint Floral Studio: soft white blooms were gathered in silver square vases.


I designed the tags for the candy bags with the same seashell-themed background and attached them on the side of each bag.

The candy station is currently featured in the 2013 edition of Ceremony Magazine:
