NACE Holiday Jingle Mingle

We were honored to be asked to do a holiday-inspired candy and dessert table for the NACE 17th Annual Holiday Gala. NACE is a wonderful organization that Chic Sweets is proud to be a part of and where we've been able to build some fantastic relationships with some of the best wedding/event professionals in the industry. Coordinated by the wonderful Sandy Rule, owner of Sandy Rule Events Inc and also on NACE's Board of Directors, she graciously gave us free reign to come up with the concept and the color scheme.

For this table, I wanted to stay away from your typical Holiday colors and I got inspired from a an elegant and charming plum blossom and branch pattern in red, blossom, and white on a pool background with branches, that was silkscreened on handmade Japanese paper. The paper was used as a backdrop for the candy vessels, cookies and popcorn. In addition to the paper, I also fell in love with the always-wonderful Holiday cookies created by
Thea Zegata. She incorporated a bird image that I brought into our signage and centerpiece (what can I say, I'm all about the birds and branches on this one.)

Along with my (Real Wedding-Chic Peacock Inspired) I am bitting my nails waiting for the wonderful photos taken at this great party, but in the meantime I will leave you with a snippet of what I managed to take right before everything started.

More detail shots to come shortly...
