While brainstorming on our next creative project, our marketing team headed over to Pinterest for some much needed inspiration.
As any Pin-oholic knows, that social site is highly addictive, and will suck you in like a hungry black hole. We love that black hole. We don’t mind being sucked in by it…
With countless inspiring ideas, we ultimately decided on creating a Candy Buffet. A RAINBOW one. Colorful, Sweet, and Upbeat!
Rainbows and Lollipops =)
Have you ever wondered what happened to the Marathon caramel chocolate bar?
The Mars Candy Company introduced it in 1973 and it was a full eight inches of braided caramel covered in milk chocolate. It was marketed as “the candy bar you can’t eat quickly” in commercials by some kind of a cowboy guy. The Marathon Bar came in a bright red wrapper that made it stand out from the other candy bars. There was actually a ruler on the wrapper that showed how long it really was.
Last week my son asked me to help him to create a candy bouquet Father’s Day gift for his dad. Excellent idea! I thought. My first idea was to do a black and white themed bouquet. I selected a simple glass bottle to use as a vase. I stuffed it with black shredded paper, next I arranged three black and white swirl lollipops in the vase and I finished the arrangement with an over sized white bow.
Candy Buffets are a growing trend at social events. It can be a whimsical addition to your reception, or act as playful and interactive favors. We spoke with party planner Monica Bacallao of Moni Marvels to get the the insight on her candy styling efforts.
