Candy Apple Station Anyone?

10.20.2011

For the Fall Brides thinking of a great "exit bar" for your guests at the end of the night, how exciting would it be to have a candy apple station? Guest can dip mini or regular sized apples in melted chocolate, candy or in my ultimate favorite, CARAMEL. You could serve the apples with various of toppings and just about anything that your little heart's desire. I think I'll make mine a APPLE COMBO with caramel, M&M's, crushed nuts and a little drizzle of white chocolate. What about yours?

4 Perfect 'Bar' To End The Evening

1.10.2011

There's something about a candy bar decorated with your desired childhood candies that makes a wedding reception that much sweeter and more wedding couples are incorporating it into their big day. They're playful and wonderful for your guests to interact with one another and adding a few personal touches or choosing your favorite color design can make your station look off the charts! The candy bar trend will only get more in style through the years and they’re certainly here to stay in 2011. Another fabulous trend to wow your guests is to select a different type of bar, whether it’s a cigar or brandy station to surprise your groom or a chocolate dessert bar for the sweet tooth lovers. Below are some of my favorite bars to reveal at the end of the night that will have your guest talking about your wedding day for years to come!

1. The Coffee Bars:  What a great treat for your guests to personalize their own beverages. For the table, you can incorporate different types of coffee flavors and serve it with multiple toppings including; whipped cream, peppermint sticks, shaved chocolate or even sprinkles! If you have a larger budget, hire a mobile coffee bar serving your guests cappuccino's, hot chocolates or even smoothies. Now that's one of a kind!

2. Old Fashion Soda Bars: What is there not to love! Soda Bars can add a playful touch to any wedding reception. Arrange the soda bottles by colors or even flavors and have your guest choose their favorites. Attach a straw with a charming personalized tag on each bottle and they can be given out as wedding favors.

3. Popcorn Bars: If you and your sweetheart are popcorn fanatics, this bar would be a perfect compliment to your wedding. Set up different flavors of popcorn; from caramel to chedder cheese in large jars with personalize ribbons and tags to add a cute touch. Your guest will definetly have a popping evening!


4. Mash Potato Bars: Different? Absolutely. Mash Potato is such a comfort food to serve up to your guests at a wedding after a long night of dancing. Serve the single scoop of mash potato in martini glasses and have a buffet of toppings for your guest to choose from. Have fun with your toppings; whether it's butter, chives, cheese or try something more daring, horseradish, lobster or even guacamole.

There are countless ideas to choose from. Be creative when selecting a bar at your wedding reception. A great way to narrow down your options when choosing a station is finding one that fits your wedding theme. If you’re having an elegant black tie affair, you might want to stay away from a taco stand.
