I had the pleasure of working with Ansonya at Principles in Action again for another candy buffet for a beautiful wedding.  I designed the labels, signs, favor tags and popcorn bag labels.

The idea with these was to be classy.  There were different size labels for larger and smaller treats.  The labels had fun romantic saying to replace actual candy names.  Check out the pictures below and leave your comments!






 




Remember us for your next event!  We look forward to coming up with creative fun ideas for your wedding or special event.

So this post is long overdue and I apologize.  For our wedding we wanted an old-fashioned, vintage style wedding with class.  Since our wedding was in July, I came up with a thought of a Midsummer Night's Dream.  Later, I found out this was a Shakespeare romantic comedy! So, we added Shakespeare into our theme.

My husband came up with the idea for scroll invitations to match the timeframe we were going for.  I figured if we're going to do this, might as well go all out and make them look as real as possible!

  

The scroll was tied with a ribbon then another ribbon wrapped around the rest of the inserts (reply card and envelope, reception card and map/directions card).


This all fitted into a dark blue metallic inner envelope, which then fitted inside a gold leaf metallic outer envelope.


We received so many flattering comments on these!  It really wowed our guests and they loved them!  Keep in mind if you do this, you do have to pay shipping on these.  It costs us $1.88 per invite to send in the mail.

I also created our own candy buffet.  It included a variety of candies like lentils, rock candy, gummies and even some Italian candies to go with our honeymoon (we went to Rome, Italy for our honeymoon!).  I created all the paperie products for this candy buffet.

 
 


  
Also, for our programs for the ceremony, we rolled them up into scrolls!


Why stop there?  Our table number signs and other signs around the room were attached to rods and hung by ribbon!  Every guest also received a "Thank You" note rolled up and tied of with a ribbon.


Our escort cards were a little different as well.  We created books for every couple.  The outside was stamped with their names, the spine stamped with "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and the inside had a picture of us on one side with the other side their table assignment with a page from the romantic comedy.

 

If you liked this theme or any of the products mentioned above, we'll be more than happy to help you!  Contact us for details and pricing.

I recently hosted a baby shower for my best friend, Stephanie.  She just had her first baby, a little girl named Kylie.  She's the most adorable little girl!

I chose a Chic pink and gray theme for her baby shower.  We did a fairly simple and small sweets buffet.


It really turned out pretty and cute.  It seems like everyone enjoyed it.  We put the invite in a frame and placed it on the table along with the "It's a Girl" sign.

 
 
The buffet included homemade strawberry marshmallows dipped in pink-colored white chocolate with a gray and white straw placed through the tops.  The gray cupcakes were strawberry flavored with vanilla frosting.  The pink cupcakes were vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting.  Then, I took oreos and dipped them in white chocolate.  Everything was so delicious!  And pretty, too!



If you're interested in the invitations or other paperie goods, please check out our etsy store or contact us for more information.

We also sell the homemade marshmallows in several different flavors under our new business, "Farrally Delicious."  Just contact us for more info!

I wish!  Instead, I had the honor of working with Ansonya at Principles in Action for yet another wonderful time of setting up a beautiful candy buffet. 

This theme was a travel theme based on Paris and Rome.  Her order included some signs, favor tags and candy buffet labels.  I take most of my pride in the candy buffet labels we came up with.

The idea started with them looking like luggage tags to go with the travel theme.  Ansonya asked for two designs.  These are the two Design Scents provided:




These were then cut out and matted with a dark purple metallic cardstock.  Holes were punched through just like real luggage tags to allow gorgeous purple and silver metallic ribbon to run through and let the tag hang from the jars.




As you can see from the images, they had local and foreign mailing stamps to give it that travel feeling.  Then, I added in the background some old-fashioned handwriting to make it look like someone was writing a letter to be put into the mail.  Then, there was a single line drawn down the middle for the name of the candies to be added. 

When we added the names of the candies, Ansonya wanted something "Italian" incorporated with the names.  We concluded with the idea of adding romantic Italian sayings (plus, a translation into English!).  So, below the name of the candy you can see where the romantic Italian saying was added.

I must admit, these turned out beautifully!  And, to be completely honest...I changed the ones I made for my upcoming wedding to luggage tags as well!  I'll be posting soon all the designs and stationary we're using in our upcoming wedding (it's only 2.5 weeks away!).

For those in San Antonio, looking for an amazing team of wedding planners, you must check out Principles in Action!

Here are some photos of the candy buffet they designed and came up with to use with these labels. Enjoy!

There are several factors that complete their fabulous events. Here we are going to focus on their candy buffets - because here at Design Scents, we LOVE that candy buffet!

Like their motto says, "We Plan! We Create! We Orchestrate! We Execute! With Excellence!"

They did just that with this candy buffet they put together for a vintage-themed wedding. Check out the photos, and let us know your thoughts!




Remember in a previous entry I mentioned how simplicity can be key? You can overdue a theme. Adding too much decorations can add clutter and become unpleasant to the eye. Not only are candy buffets yummy and guests love them! But, they can really add to the decor of the room and help bring in your theme.

These next few pictures show a cute, yet effective way that Principles in Action Consulting, LLC used simplicity to complete their look. The little ants, a flower here and there, a couple vases of floral, and a vintage ladle all bring together the feeling of strutting outdoors vintage style!



I liked these cute little details. It really emphasized the theme without overdoing.

If you're in San Antonio and you've been in a bind while trying to plan your next corporate event or wedding, think of Principles in Action Consulting, LLC.
