Renaissance Vinoy Wedding by Limelight Photography


At Chic Sweets, we are so not afraid of color around here. In fact we say the more the merrier, and apparently we aren’t the only ones with a penchant for going outside the box of usual color palettes.   I believe we found our match with our next couple, Colleen and Jared.  Not only did they integrate their wedding with every ounce of coral, ivory and apple green they could muster, they also made sure to have every possible candy you can imagine at their dessert table.

Shot by the amazing Christi from Limelight Photography, this Renaissance Vinoy wedding has a personality of its own and we were in love with every inch of it. From the poms that we assembled from our favorite Etsy seller, Nai from Party Poms, to the wonderful Paper Source Lokta print that used to line our vessals, everything just really came together.

Style Me Pretty Feature: Photo Album Dessert Table, Part I


Happy Friday! Hopefully by now you have checked out our amazing Style Me Pretty feature here. We also wanted to share some of the wonderful shots here at Chic Sweets.

The story of this table really began with a cute little template from Two Yellow Shoes and I just really took it from there. Lots of times you may find that these photoshoots can become "overstylized" and maybe even overdone; however, I just wanted to create a scene that felt beautiful and serene.

Right away, I knew I wanted to do a ribbon backdrop. I just thought it would be great with the beach wind and add to the laid back feel. From there, the rest of the table fell right into place. We had a few challenges on the day of-the weather was completely chaotic. Huge thunderstorms loomed all around us, but we managed to pull it off! Thankfully, our other photoshoot partner, MMD Events provided a wonderful model (Vanessa), She did an amazing job despite the weather, and truly, could she not look more perfect?  MMD Events also put together the loveliest of tablescapes that complemented the  entire scene, and who to capture it better but our friends, Rebecca and Michael over at Limelight Photography.

We'll post Part II next week! Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Macy's Dessert Table with MTV's Callie Walker

So here at Chic Sweets, we were super excited when Kristina from Fab-Events called us to set up a dessert table for Macy's Back to School Show, hosted by the GORGEOUS Callie Walker from MTV's the Real World Washington D.C.  It was last-minute but everything came together great. We actually do not get to work with red & black color palette too often so we were totally up for the challenge.

For our backdrop, we used some wonderful hanging bud bases and also mason jars from Pottery Barn (love that store). The rest of the table was complimented with shades of white candy, accented with black and red ribbons.

Please excuse the poor quality of the pictures (and a very-tired looking me)...

Real Wedding: Katherine and Cam

Some other reception decor:

I couldn’t help but fall in love with this completely adorable wedding that Aaron over at Aaron Lockwood Photography sent our way. Aside from being held at one of the most fabulous St. Petersburg venues, the Museum of Fine Arts, it’s also 100% personality. Which you know we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE here at Chic Sweets.

The design behind this dessert table was all about featuring the colors that I adore: shades of pink, coral, and yellow infused the table and reception decor. They created a wonderful monogram and to make the design a focal point, it was blown up behind a curtain of ribbons, varying in different widths. The table was filled with different types of their favorite candies--gummi bears, gum balls, rock candy, etc. And to top the table off we added some adorable marshmallow pops, echoing the bright colors.

Thanks again to Aaron for the lovely pics! I also added a few of our own from my amateur-photo taking skills.

Also special, special thanks to Sandy Rule from Sandy Rule Events for putting all the pieces together for this fantastic wedding and to Conceptbait for the lighting, draping and decor (whew!).

Happy Monday!
