Coastal Inspired Candy Bar at The Huntley, As Featured On Grace Ormonde Wedding Style

Coastal Inspired Candybar at The Huntley Hotel

With elegant hues of white and hints of blue, we created a coastal-inspired dessert design for this styled shoot that is beautifully featured on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style. Find the full feature HERE.

This color palette of white, blue and green was a perfect resemblance of the coastal inspired feel. Blues and greens were splashed throughout the design to bring the theme to life.

This themed candy bar was surrounded by a floral designed archway and truly was a centerpiece of the shoot! Cake pops and cupcakes were among many of the sweet treats we offered. We pulled inspiration from the sea for this luxurious California wedding. Starfish, coral and waves were a few of the small accents that brought the design to life.

Hints of gold were sprinkled throughout the sweet treats that created an effortless mist of elegance. Circular candy resembled ocean bubbles that harmonized with the coastal theme. Sea shells were used as accents to accompany the blue and green design.

The ocean theme was encapsulating and exemplified flawlessly within this styled shoot. We loved being able to design this fun and unique colored coastal candy bar!

Sofia Vergara’s “Tropical Paradise” Candy Bar, As featured on People

933 621 Candybar Couture

We’ve created several stunning candy bars for the beautiful Sofia Vergara, so when she asked us to design a Tropical Paradise themed candy bar, we were so excited! Sofia loves sweets and always wants her candy and dessert displays to be over the top, so we rang in the summer with this Tropical Paradise candy bar! We are thrilled to see this party featured on People! See the full feature HERE.

Sofia wanted to welcome in Summer with her friends, and the incredible vendor team did this, and so much more! The theme for the party was a tropical paradise, with food, entertainment and design influenced by Brazilian, Colombian and South American cultures. From mermaids swimming and lounging by the pool, to multicolored macaws and parrots from a well-respected bird refuge company, the evening was truly a party and guests were always treated to something new! Brazilian dancers kept the dance floor full all night, while guests munched on amazing Colombian food by Cheff Juanma.

Our candy bars embraced the tropical vibe with a bright and fun color palette. Red, orange, yellow and green candies were placed among the designs. The choices were limitless, from chocolates and gummies to custom candy holders! This “delicious, star-studded memorial day bash” was such a fun event to work on. We are thankful to have worked with this team of vendors!

From People: If anyone knows how to throw a party, it’s Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family star has been known to turn her and hubby Joe Manganiello‘s Los Angeles backyard into a massive bash for their friends and family — and Monday’s holiday was no exception. Vergara shared several Instagrams throughout the night, documenting the tropical paradise theme and the celeb-studded guest list, which included her costars Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Ed O’Neill and Ty Burrell, and friends Armie Hammer and his wife Elizabeth. The Colombian native made sure the night featured something that felt like home, with food served by chef Juan Manuel Barrientos.”

The Sketchbook Series Los Angeles Workshop Featured on Special Events Magazine

933 623 Candybar Couture

We are continuously in awe of the delightful opportunities we’re given to expand our event portfolio. When we were asked to plan The Sketchbook Series Los Angeles workshop, we knew one thing for sure: it was going to be fun! To see it featured on Special Events Magazine is such a treat! Find the full feature HERE.

To begin, we created an all-star vendor team. We knew The Huntley Hotel would bring the luxurious experience and high caliber. We looped in our most trusted vendors, planner Clarissa Rezende, floral designer Eddie Zaratsian, vintage rental company Sweet Salvage Rentals, and Photographer Karina Pires.

Our candy bar incorporated the beautiful lavender color palette, and still embraced a unique addition to the workshop. We used an antique bar cart from Sweet Salvage Rentals to set it. We used various sized vases and filled them with candy of different shades of purple. From sugar sticks to chocolate rock candy, guests were able to both enjoy the candybar and sketch it! We finished it off with florals by Eddie Zaratsian.

The Sketchbook Series is grateful to have incredible sponsors! All our stunning, blooming florals were sponsored by Blooms By The Box. The Sketchbook Series also partners with Copic Markers, Imagination International, Aisle Planner, Esselle SF, and Honeybook.

We worked closely with Mary to design a space that brought the lavender inspired look to life. Attendees were given the ultimate VIP experience with hands on teaching, delicious sweet treats and lunch, and even a personal gift!

We are honored to have been given the opportunity to host this event. Thank you to everyone involved, and a big thank you to Special Events Magazine for featuring us!

Martha Medeiros’ Galentine’s Day Party Featured on Love Luxe Life

900 900 Candybar Couture

What’s better than Valentine’s Day? Galentine’s Day, that is!

Our friend Martha Medeiros opened up her Melrose Avenue fashion boutique with a Galentine’s Day party that was both luxurious and chic! The party was featured on Love Luxe Life. See the full feature HERE.

“Celebrity fashion designer Martha Medeiros celebrated the grand opening of her Melrose Avenue boutique with a beautiful and luxurious Galentine’s Day party. The party exuded elegance with a stunning color palette of bold reds and blush pinks. Complete with overflowing florals and a delicious candybar by Candybar Couture, this event was super sweet for every guest! Candybar Couture is the premier source for haute couture candy and dessert bars. Their stunning buffets are a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Their candy bars are designed to be not only an interactive party favor, but also a beautiful addition to the party décor. For this event, they perfectly themed their party around love, beauty, kisses and hearts. Their dessert display left a lasting impression on the guests.
Martha Medeiros has been transforming handmade wefts, stitch by stitch, into luxurious, sought-after lace gowns for a long time. She designs and makes, together with more than 400 women, organized into cooperatives by the San Francisco river and in Northeastern hinterland the most luxurious, genuinely Brazilian lace. “Something that does not exist any longer anywhere in the world,” says the designer, referring to the fact that handmade lace is a rarity in the technological world where we live. “We have unique dresses, with handmade lace. The lace embroidered in high relief creates different textures and makes long gowns even more exclusive. Each bridal gown takes about one year to be made.” This is one of the designer’s favorite themes: dealing with dreams, building stories for the brides. In addition to custom-made dresses, the bridal line has a ready-to- wear line, with more inviting prices. The traditional french lace with high relief appliqués create a multidimensional texture, also custom-made according to the taste of each client. An outpouring of light, soft colors, such as off-white and beige tones, follows the traditional white, which is always present. The romantic quality comes with the corset shape and voluminous skirts. The contemporary mood comes with straight, clean shapes. In addition to the  whole bridal collection by designer Martha Medeiros, they can create unique, custom-made pieces for the bridesmaid, bride’s mother and flower girl.”

Pantone Color of The Year Candybars Featured on Strictly Weddings

800 800 Candybar Couture

Thank you to Strictly Weddings for featuring us in their recent article about adding the Pantone color of the year, greenery, to your wedding day!

You can always count on us to incorporate your beautiful color palette and design concepts into your candy bar design. Take a look at our inspiration for greenery.

From Strictly Weddings: “Every year not only brings us fresh beginnings, but also gives us the chance to celebrate new brides who are seeking inspiration for their spring and summer time weddings. How fitting to commemorate the start of 2017 by diving into Greenery wedding ideas inspired by Pantone Color of the Year. A color that is refreshing and revitalizing. Certainly, a shade that symbolizes new beginnings. Replacing last year’s softer shades of Serenity and Rose Quartz, Greenery is a zesty yellow-green that reconnects us to nature by evoking the sense of warmer seasons with flourishing foliage and the experience of the great outdoors. At first glance, Greenery might not be the on-trend color choice for you, but after seeing how elements can be incorporated into a wedding day in a variety of ways – we are certain you might be on board with this lush hue.”

Hollywood Glam Inspired Wedding Featured on BrideStory

800 800 Candybar Couture

It was a pleasure being part of this styled shoot at the gorgeous Fighouse LA. Take a look at the inspiration and photos from our candybar below!

Find the full feature here.

“This stunning modern Hollywood glam wedding photo shoot coordinated by ROQUE Events was set in the sweet + warm winter months of Los Angeles. A compilation of ritzy red, soft peach, sweet coral and pops of gold radiated at the mid-century modern venue, The Fig House, and it felt super luxurious and rich.

It was very important to create a complete wedding from the moment the bride walked down the aisle to say ‘I Do’, to enjoying perfectly paired ‘his + her’ specialty cocktails with their wedding party prepared by Pharmacie, a glamorous dinner by roomforty to follow and sharing memorable moments cutting their ultra modern cake.

The holiday inspired white lacquer serpentine dining table from Revelry Event Design did not disappoint as it showcased, powerful gold accents, plush dining chairs, wood chargers, sleek plateware, gold + white flatware, ruby red water goblets, ornate crystal Champagne flutes, lush red floral arrangements from Eddie Zaratsian and custom poppy colored menus from Maude Press decorated with bright red velvet ribbon.

This 360 ceremony set up brought an ultra chic vibe for the bride + grooms nuptials. With gold and grey simple elegance there was not a bad seat in the house. The wedding party was made up of stunning glam squad bridesmaids and GQ-esque groomsmen. The bride and groom were classic and timeless with a long sleeve lace gown and polished burgundy tuxedo.”

The party had so many fun and interactive booths, including an airbrush tattoo booth, our candybar, and yummy desserts by Bottega Louie.

Our luxurious candybar was accented in elegant rose gold and ivory. We added a vintage gold perfume station as well for a unique touch. We were grateful to have a backdrop of stunning and elaborate gowns available for purchase by Panache Bridal. Their gorgeous texture and sparkle was the perfect addition to the booth.  The femininity and elegance of this candybar went perfectly with the event! The final touch was a lovely floral centerpiece by Empty Vase, complete with light blush toned roses, hydrangeas, and peonies.
