Stage Your Candy Bar!

It is all about presentation! Stage your table with containers of various heights, tallest at the back for easy access to all items on the table. By using large, clear jars to display your candy, it makes it effortless for your guests to scoop the sweet treats. Trays for smaller candy can be put in front to vary your Candy Bar décor and give it that extra little touch.

Takeaways

Having favor boxes or containers available is a must! This allows your guests to take as much or as little candy as they want. Your guests can also take a treat home for later to remember the occasion. Make it even more special by customizing the container with a personalized label or tag.

It’s All In The Details!

Incorporating signage on your table can help your guests pick and choose with ease. Don’t forget the scoops and napkins to avoid those sticky fingers. Personalize the napkins with a unique message to your guests.

Use these sweet tips and you’re sure to create a personalized Candy Bar that your guests will love!

the contemporary guest book

There’s something so wonderful about the blending of tried and true traditions with current day trends, about putting contemporary twists on old school concepts. If you’re like me, a closet sucker for sentiment with a keen eye for pretty, then you’re in for a real treat. Using modern materials and on-trend designs, today’s feature products take the traditional concept of a guest book and elevate it x 100. From gorgeous hardcover bindings to delicately personalized pages, the transformation from old to new is major. As an added bonus, they also happen to make for amazing keepsakes and ideal spots to hold some of your favorite wedding day mementos. And with finishing details this pretty, you’re sure to want to put these books on permanent display.

All In The Details

About the only thing these books have in common with their traditional counterparts is their paper makeup. Beyond that, not a detail was left unchanged. Textured hardcovers hold personalized pages. Lined pages are replaced with blanks to open up the opportunity for how these books are used. And front to back, the design details are right on point.
