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.”

Keith Urban Rustic Country Inspired Candybar for The Special Event 2017

682 1024 Candybar Couture

It was so wonderful being part of the much-awaited 2017 Wedding Event for The Special Event!

We designed a beautiful country rustic 360 degree candy bar that wowed the 650 guests. This design was truly an interactive showstopper. Every angle was a new aspect of the design. We had gold wrapped chocolates and luminescent white jelly beans. Sugar candy sticks and pink gum balls added color and fun.

We had gorgeous vintage rustic rentals by Sweet Salvage Rentals that added dimension and height. Our favorite Sweet Salvage Rentals piece was their Carolina Shores trunk!

Stunning and grand blooms by The Empty Vase was the topper to our masterpiece. With both eye-catching and delicious sweets from top to bottom, guests got to move about the space and collect their desserts!

Take a look at our design, and the rest of this beautiful rustic event!












 

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.”

It was an absolute pleasure to be part of Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah! With blush and pastel as the main thematic focus, we took this candybar to the next level!

Lovely florals and petals were added to the design to add a pretty touch! Moments By Wayne and the amazing vendor team worked their magic once again to bring Rachel’s dream to life. We decided to use our gold and white containers to accent the overall Bat Mitzvah design.

Here’s some close ups of our creation!

Ethan’s Stylish Red Candy bar

800 533 Candybar Couture

Red, black and silver… these colors combined always make a bold statement! Our candy bar added some serious style and was a major centerpiece for Ethan’s Bar Mitzvah Party.

From cakepops and bowtie cookies, to macaron trees and lip lollipops, Ethan’s candybar had it all. Every aspect of the tabletop had red, black and silver touches, creating a unique candybar masterpiece!

We added candles and incredible red floral arrangements by Mark’s Garden to give height and depth to the tablescape. We even personalized lollipops and drinks with Ethan’s initials. Ethan’s name in lights centered the table along with a big star!

Our candybars are truly meant for any guest of every age. We include all different candies to satisfy any sweet tooth, from chocolates to sour gummies. Ethan’s party was such a beautiful celebration surrounded by all his supportive family and friends. It reminded us yet again how grateful we are to have this job!

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!
