Cakes and desserts will have an artistic flair to their edible displays.  Macaroon towers provides height and drama while Croquembouche is elegant and enticing.  And let’s not forget the ever favorite cake pop displays, which can be ornate and lavish.  The visual interest will make these displays fun for your guests.

Grazing tables have been around for awhile, however they will become more elaborate.  My favorite include a wonderful array of breads, cheeses, meats, nuts, fruits and some sweet delights for sure.

Interactive Food Stations are staples for any wedding.  Entertaining your guests while they make a choice of food options keeps them engaged and makes their experience memorable.

Floral displays will be dramatic with gold rings and wooden beams.  They add that touch of drama you want for interest and depth.

Custom signs are always a necessity for your guests.  This includes seating charts and mirrors, letter boards and inspirational escort cards.  Being creative is the best part for brides and grooms, as you get to show your personality.  Our recent clients traveled a lot and chose to use custom postcards for their guests escort cards.  It was personal to the couple and so much fun for their guests.

Copper will be oh so popular this wedding season.  Copper adds a modern touch and is so versatile with so many color schemes, including “Pantone’s Color of the Year” of Coral.  Whether it’s Coral or your favorite shade of Lilac or Pale Pink, Copper has the ability to incorporate itself effortlessly.

Centerpieces in wooden boxes will be popular and are chic.  They are simply so versatile.  They work well with weddings which are elegant, rustic or simply romantic.  They offer natural elements including plants, succulents, flowers, crystals and stones.

Favors are always a question I receive from clients. Should I or shouldn’t I?  Favors are still very popular, in particular edible favors.  Guests love something they can eat and enjoy.  So when thinking of favors don’t be afraid to think outside of the box with options like popcorn, maple syrups, spices, or oils.  Truffles are always a great favor, but thinking outside the box makes that favor fabulous!

So when planning your wedding, be sure it reflects you and is personal.  This is your day to share with family and friends and it should always be about you as a couple.

Happy planning!

The wedding season is upon us as we move through June and into July and August.  If you’re like alot of people, you will be attending at least one wedding this summer.  When you think of wedding favors, you probably think about the typical picture frame, chocolates or a wine stopper.  But rest assured there are new and creative wedding favors for you to choose from.

The newest edible wedding trends for 2014 include:

-Zeppole. Powdered and bagged while still warm just before the end of your reception will make these desserts a crowd pleaser. Guests tend to eat them in their car on their way home.

-Mini donuts. The donuts craze is still a top trend in wedding favors, whether it’s traditional styles or you order custom donuts iced in your wedding colors.  Bakers are always happy to accommodate your color scheme or style.

-Popcorn. Placed in containers or bags on a popcorn display table for guests to take home are available in almost any flavor you can imagine.

-Retro candies. A candy bar filled with colorful candy may feature retro candies that guests remember from their childhoods, like cinnamon candies, Pop Rocks, root beer bottle tops and others.

-Cookie or brownie mixes in mason jars. Mason jars have been a top wedding décor trend, and are now holding as the top wedding favor. You layer the ingredients for an easy ‘pour into the bowl and mix with eggs, oil, etc.’ baking project to make your own baked dessert.

Always remember edible favors never go wrong and are always on trend!

Happy planning!
