Pink and Silver “Hollywood Weddings With Kevin Lee” Workshop Candybar

Hollywood Weddings With Kevin Lee Candy Bar

We put our candy-driven mind to work when we collaborated with Kevin Lee and Dee James from White Roses Events to create a special workshop event full of delicate colors, class and charm for Lovegevity’s Hollywood Weddings Workshop. Light pink, silver and white were a flawless color palette in this event’s elegantly designed décor. Candy decked the entrance table and students and  guests treated themselves to sweet treats throughout the day!

We designed dainty candy boxes that were placed among the vases of colored candy. The luxurious color palette and stunning mansion venue helped us create our candy bar vision. We used hues of silver and grey for the candy design because we knew it would exude class and glamour. From cupcakes and lollipops, to chocolates and gumballs, the event was definitely a sweet one!

We worked with Kevin Lee, Dee, and the Lovegevity team to accent Kevin’s floral design. His light pink florals were stunning and graced the top of the candy bar table. Fresh blooms were held in oversized glass vases amongst the abundance of sweet treats.

Lovegevity students loved the table and sought inspiration from our design to use in their own decor choices. The accent of pink floral arrangements was the perfect detail to highlight the silver and white mansion.

Luxury Candybar Featured on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style

933 622 Candybar Couture
We are featured in the Spring issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style… what a treat!
We had the pleasure of being part of the wedding for Edgar Zamora of Revelry Event Designers, and Celio Almeida of Celio’s Design, two dear friends of ours! This luxurious wedding had everything you could think of, from a guest musician and extravagant decor elements, to Brazilian dancers!
The candy bar we designed was an “after dinner” candy bar, consisting of coffee, liquor and chocolates from all over the world! The color scheme embraced a beige and brown color palette. It beautifully accompanied the all white reception.
Take a look at the 8 page feature spread of the wedding, as well as images of our candybar below.

 






 

Celio and Edgar wanted their reception to be unique, so they transformed the Hotel Bel Air ballroom with soft Italian chiffon drapery, a white seamless dance floor, blush and white florals and intriguing guest dining tables. Button tufted chairs, half moon shaped banquets and mirror top tables were set with crystal stemware and silver and gold flatware. Celio‘s elaborate and sophisticated floral designs perfectly matched Edgar‘s regal, custom designed reception furniture…”




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.”

Sweet 16 Birthday Candy Buffet

1024 683 Candybar Couture

It doesn’t get any prettier than pink, or sweeter than a sweet 16! And for Nicole’s Sweet 16th birthday candy buffet, we were able to include both aspects!

We really wanted to make Nicole’s day special. Candy and sweets played an important role in her entire party theme, so we knew her candy bar had to be over the top! Gold and pink were the two primary colors of this tabletop.

Customized chocolate bars took the center of the table. Candy kebobs, pink frosted cupcakes and cotton candy were some of our favorite additions!

We had a backdrop for our candy bar that read “Nicole’s Sweet Shop,” setting the tone with a sweet and fun touch, on top of bright greenery walls. Gold brooch accents were put on all our vases! We added gold mirrored settings to add depth and height.

We even added blush pink roses designed by planner Trisha Haner of The Hidden Garden Floral Studio.

Thank you to photographer Chris Vanderhorst for the lovely captures!

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!

Baby Niam’s 100th Day Bow Tie Party

682 1024 Candybar Couture
We are honored to be part of so many special moments and celebrations, and Baby Niam’s 100th Day Bow Tie Party will be in our hearts forever!

Baby Niam's 100th Day Bow Tie Party, Green Candy Bar

We designed a bow tie themed dessert bar for baby Niam, who was turning 100 days old. In Korean culture, a baby’s 100th day is a very special milestone.

Back in the day when Korea had little medicinal knowledge, many newborns would pass from disease. The 100th day is celebrated for having survived this difficult period, as well as celebrating the mother and father on their 100 days of parenthood – some the most difficult days!

Niam’s  family held an open house for friends and family to come meet him. The theme was bow tie, and we decided to accent the candy bar with gray, silver, and green. Stunning florals by Luna Gardens adorned the party and the tabletop as well. Thank you to Niam and his lovely family for letting us be part of his special day!

Sabrina’s Butterfly Bat Mitzvah

950 634 Candybar Couture

A wonderful part of our job is being able to work with party planners and designers to create a candy bar that effortlessly fits into the party theme, Sabrina’s butterfly Bat Mitzvah is a perfect example of that!
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Wayne of Moments By Wayne on several events including this one. We absolutely adore working with Wayne! We have such a respect and admiration for his work and love that the direction he gives still allows us to use our creativity when designing our candy bars.

Most often, we design tables that match colors of an event. However, for this one, Sabrina the Bat Mitzvah star, picked specific candies that were her favorites! We incorporated her lovely and whimsical butterfly theme by adding butterflies on top of the candy jars. We even included butterfly-shaped gummy candy!

Sweet 16 Vintage Hollywood Glamour Candy bar

1024 682 Candybar Couture

What’s sweeter than a sweet 16? A Sweet 16 Vintage Hollywood Candy bar! And the only thing that made it sweetest one ever was being able to create the candy bar for Ryan Newman! We had so much fun with this design and loved partnering with Clarissa Rezende! We wanted the vintage glamour theme of the party to be showcased in every aspect so we chose old vintage items like cameras, typewriters, and books to really set this candy bar apart!

We mixed gold details with light greys and greens which really played well together. The main centerpiece of the design was this vintage chest that was just eye-catching!

candybar-couture-sweet-16-candy-bar6

Old vintage Hollywood wouldn’t be complete with a lovely perfume setting! We used candy rocks in the vases that complemented the gold glass vases.

candybar-couture-sweet-16-candy-bar5candybar-couture-sweet-16-candy-bar4

The lovely final addition was the “Sweet 16” message on the old fashion type writer! This candybar was very fun to put together! The glamour and beauty of vintage Hollywood added a new dimension to the candybar itself, and it was easy to find deliciously sweet additions to the candybar. From lollipops and gumballs, to chocolate and golden-wrapped candies, the colors mixed so beautifully!
