Candy Bar…

Ice Cream Bar

Different size jars set at different heights gives maximum WOW!

Yummy!

Remember, Becky’s post with the Candy Bar? Well, this is a twist from our friends. Way to go Tricia and Alta Lynn!

Spaghetti Lunch…

Now, how about something using free items. We all love a good bargain and especially when we’re helping to raise money for a good cause like sending kids to camp. This summer, our youth held a Spaghetti lunch to help fund their summer camp trip to Snowbird Adventure Camp in North Carolina. To make it more personal, I featured each of the youth at a table. The members loved it and it made them feel more connected.

Ingredients

Donated tomato can and dried pasta, herb, flower, and tissue paper

Finished Table

I contacted a local resturant and asked if I could have 15 large tomato cans, the potted herbs came from HEB our local grocery store at a discount with a coupon, and the gerber daisy is from Michaels. The dried pasta was a mis order to our church kitchen that our host donated and I was able to use red and white check clothes from our church as well. To decorate 20 tables, I spent about $45 dollars.

For a more girly look, I used my candle jars for ladies dinner.

Happy Decorating Y’all!

“Show Me” the Candy! (For a Wedding!)

Wow who wouldn’t want to be a kid in a candy store?

Recently I was able to help a good friend create a Candy Bar for a wedding! What fun we had. The bride’s mom preordered candy from several websites all in blue, green, turquoise and white. (M&M’s, Jelly beans, Sour punch straws, gummy sharks and rock candy suckers to name a few.) This coordinated with the bride’s peacock color story and theme! Hope you all enjoy!

All the candy was ordered in green and blue

Blue and green M&M's ordered just for the candy bar!

We gathered up as many glass assorted containers as we could find. All different shapes and sizes, a wider opening is always good so a scoop can fit, and then we begin filling and layering! This is not a perfect science and as you will see when it is all put together, it’s fun and beautiful!

It helps to have two hands!

Layered candy looks best! Closeup of rock candy.

Yum! Finished candy bar looks good enough to eat!

The table was skirted in a white table-cloth, white cord Christmas lights were layed on the table top and covered with sheer white, green and turquoise fabric from Hancock Fabrics.
Filled glass containers and vases were artfully arranged with the fabric draped in and out. The lights gave a shimmering glow.

Clear bags for guest to fill with candy.

“Thank you for sharing in Our Sweet Beginning” was printed on the labels with green and blue twist ties provided to seal the filled bag of goodies!

As a finishing touch, narrow green and blue satin ribbon was tied on the necks of many of the containers. Fun giant jawbreakers topped the M&M’s. Blue and green ring pops gave a nod to the newly exchanged wedding rings, and gummy sharks swam in a sea of jelly beans in honor of the grooms love of fishing!

Scoops and tongs topped off the jars ready for guest to enjoy.
