Sweet {Now ‘n Later!} Backdrop Guest Dessert Feature

bday9 Sweet {Now n Later!} Backdrop Guest Dessert Feature

We were sent this cute and clever candy table by Michele Pentecost from Crazy for Design.  Michele created this table for her candy-a-holic sister’s birthday party.  I love how Michele used candy in creative and personal ways throughout the table.  The whimsical design for the backdrop was made from now and laters, one of the candies that they both ate as kids.  Michele also used candy necklaces to hang the tissue paper topiaries. On the candy table were some of their favorite “Old Time” candy from childhood like Fun Dip, NERDS, Good ‘n Plenty and Pop Rocks.  The favors included a tube of toothpaste and a travel toothbrush, along with a workout dvd for the “sugar rush.”  Michele created all of the signage herself which can be purchased on her Etsy site here. This table is extrememly approachable and very creative. Congrats Michele!
