Old Hollywood Themed Dessert Bar For WIPA

I’m sure you all were wondering what our creative Kim was up to this past month. Wonder no more.

Two’s a Party‘s Kim went all out for the Wedding Industry Professional Association’s (WIPA) November Meeting where she showcased her stunning styling abilities with this Old Hollywood themed dessert buffet. Don’t you just love how the RED stands out? She found a perfect balance of elegant sexiness- right?

It was so fitting for the Crevier Classic Car Museum location. The perfect compliment to those sexy cars.
Kim teamed up with Christy, the amazing pastry chef from Simply Layered Cake Designs, who made those luscious black walnut cherry bites and raspberry and chocolate ganache tarts tarts- each topped with a red fruit. Christy also graced us with wonderful red-velvet and vanilla bean french macaroons, and coconut crunch pops.

Spunky Sweets Tropical Candy Buffet

Two’s A Party teamed up with Simply Layered Cake Designs to create this photoshoot as a way to showcase the creativity Kim has in her Candy Buffet styling. We called this one our Spunky Sweets. It had a tropical theme in the dessert flavors and the inspiration came from the backdrop fabric that we fell in love with!

Are those colors not the best? We loved the bright contrasts of the yellows, oranges and blues against the simplicity of the black and white accents. Yes, Kim built the tray- she’s so crafty! And Christy created some AMAZING desserts, as she always does. From Coconut Crunches to Blood Orange Tarts to Mango French Macaroons to Tropical Mini Cupcakes and cake pops. Oh, and the Lemon Meringue Parfaits! Wait, who gets to eat the desserts when we do a photoshoot?!?! Bring them back!

Wedding on the mind?

Remember earlier this month we posted the rustic beach wedding candy buffet? Well did we mention it was from Two’s A Party’s and Romance Etc.’s¬† Bridal Fair at La Palapa Restaurant? We had about THIRTY different venders at the event, so we gathered some of our favorite pictures so you can all enjoy the fair one more time.

Kim did an amazing job pulling this event together. There was a runway show of gorgeous wedding and bridesmaids dresses, table set-ups styled by Two’s A Party and Romance Etc.,and of course a mock wedding ceremony on the beach!

I’m sure you all remember this spectacular Candy Buffet by Two’s A Party, and look at the extreme attention to detail: Kim places the mini tarts on these opaque crystals that look like they came fresh out of the sea.

It wouldn’t be an event without floral arrangements from Romance Etc. We always love how they use succulents in their arrangements. We love all the green! Are those diamonds in the roses? Talk about romance!

I wish we had more pictures of this booth, because Christy from Simply Layered Cake Designs created two beautiful white wedding cakes that took our breath away. If only you could taste with your eyes. YUM!

And last, but not least, here are a couple table displays that Kim from Two’s A Party and Deborah from Romance Etc. styled for the event. They really do know how to style a wedding… or any other event for that matter.

A Candy Buffet For Any Occasion

So some of you might be wondering, “what if I want a candy buffet, but I don’t really have a theme for my party.” Not to worry, Kim from Two’s A Party outfitted this whimsical buffet for Dress My Party‘s Grand Opening at their Newport Showroom back in August.

This elegantly styled design is the perfect addition to any event: birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, wedding, or any other girlie occasion. You can also see how easily versitle her buffets can be.

We loves the simplicity of the black and white with the bold pink accents. This makes us at want to throw a tea party in the showroom and nosh on these sweets. Dibs on the Pink and White Cotton Candy Suckers! She also threw in some Sour Watermelon Balls, Black Magic Balls, Pearl White Gumballs, Old Fashioned Licorice Sticks, Whirly Pops and Good and Plenty.

Cirque Du Candy

That’s right, step right up to see the one of a kind, delectable, captivating, imaginative Circus of Candy!

Let me tell you, this spectacular creation would make any trapeze artist do a flip or two. Kim created this booth for The Pike Event Gala to promote event facilities for The Pike of Long Beach back in September. The depth of the color pallet created a vintage feel that sets this buffet apart from any other. The sophistication of the long feathers and dark wood furnishings pull the look all together and reveals a 1920’s inspiration from her design.

From black magic balls to butterscotch, there’s something for everyone. Kim even threw in some sugar-free vanilla caramels! You can’t help but feel like you’ve stepped straight into an original Ringling Bros. Circus when you set your eyes on the old-fashioned licorice sticks, black and white whirly pops and salted popcorn. Maybe you’re in the mood for something sour?–Pucker your lips with some sour cherry balls or sour cherry sassy taffy.

Kim had such a blast putting together this Two’s a Party booth, and it shows! The tulle ribbon, festive fabrics, black and red buttons, and one of a kind candy dishes is what brings this buffet to the next level of creativity.

A Wave of Salt Water… Taffy

We LOVE LOVE LOVE how this rustic beach styled candy and dessert buffet turned out. The shabby chic style is super popular with weddings right now, but instead of the usual country theme, Kim created a beach inspired¬† display. She styled this masterpiece for a bridal fair that Two’s A Party and Romance Etc. hosted at La Palapa-Del Mar. What’s so impressing is the balance that Kim found between simplicity and a theme. It’s easy to get carried away with a vision and drown in an over kill of sand, miniature sail boats, tiki torches and other nick nacks.

Fortunatly, Kim has an artist’s eye for design and styling. She actually made the dessert trays that held the lemon meringue pies and shortbread wedding cookies by Simply Layered. Along with those, Kim also decorated the table with pina colada licorice, silver chocolate coins, vanilla salt water taffy, white espresso cordials, and silver chocolate sixlets.
