Time to Celebrate - Part 4

Enjoying Tantalizing Confections

An awesome trend commonly seen at special events lately is the Candy Bar/Buffet (*all candy), and the Sweet Table (*a combo of candy, delicious baked goods and other sweet treats).
*How ETC. defines it!

They are the perfect ending to the perfect event! Some have it in place of favours, others have it as a sweet way to say "thanks for coming".

We adore candy tables, and we really love creating whimsical ones! We were excited at the challenge of infusing "time" and our favourite colour palette of purple into the overall design.

Design Features

Getting a little creative, we re-purposed a tablecloth for the backdrop, by hand painting the phrase that takes centre stage at the table.

Lollipop Timepiece
Our lollipop stand was created out of a round cardboard tube, inserted with black straws where we placed our lollipops. The lollipops were accented with "time to...." phrases (as seen in part 2 on the blog) and we added mini popsicle sticks painted black for our clock's hands.

Candy Stand
By adding a silver platform to a “Umbra” clock, we were able to craft a cool stand to hold our fruit candy slices.

"Big Top" Cupcake Stand
This stand was inspired by a trip to a fun park last summer. Large Umbrellas provided shade and a cool space for us to eat lunch.
It’s made from black glitter paper, wooden dowels, a glass plate and styrofoam. The design process was a little tricky and complex at times, but we're very happy with the result.
It houses delicious Vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing, butterfly candy and a "time flies" banner as a cupcake topper. Definitely one of our favourite treats from our Sweet Lady Sheryl Lee!

Custom Packaging
We designed chocolate bar wrappers and window treat bags, convenient for guests to take home.

Added d├ęcor includes a sand clock, a custom made tissue tassel banner and custom signage. We decided to push the envelope a bit with a Cookie Calendar; sugar cookies adhered to a calendar with icing complete the time and date sweet table.

Thank you so much for viewing this "Time to Celebrate" inspirational photo shoot. These are just a few of the services and design details Ecclesia Tidings & Creations can enhance your celebration with and we look forward to the opportunity to do so!

Many thanks to the family, friends, fans and supporters of Etc.
