'Tis the Season

The holidays are right around the corner and EyeCandy is excited for the celebrations to come!  We had the opportunity to share one of our dessert tables at the annual Christmas celebration for the Community of Charlottesville Wedding and Event Professionals in the beautiful Jefferson Theater last year.  Such a great group of people and some amazing treats.  Here's a look:

An aubergine and silver backdrop highlights the food items.  Gorgeous labels written by Jen Maton of If So Inklined Calligraphy and Illustration .

Delicious eggnog cupcakes with brandy buttercream frosting.

A bit of savory with fig tarts.

Who doesn't love a whoopie pie?

Pearlized chocolate bites

Beautiful cake

Cocoa pops.  Stirred in hot milk, these make a rich hot chocolate and a fun, interactive treat.

Brownie bites, meringue sandwiches, whoopie pies, chocolate covered almonds - something for everyone!

Candy apples for the guests and ones for the dolls made out of clay.

 Beverage Station with butterfly goody bags to contain the doll's treats.  Mini cups to quench the dolls' thirsts too!

Pre-party place settings.  Doll seats were constructed with clips and ribbon to allow the girls to sit with their dolls.

Doll-sized treats are big fun!
What a fun time with fabulous girls!

Welcome Owlette!

Today's post features a baby shower to celebrate the arrival of a baby girl.  The woodsy owl theme came straight from the invitations with instructions that the parents-to-be weren't keen on overly girly.

 We think this fit the bill perfectly!

Beautiful vanilla cupcakes, delicious chocolate pot de creme and yummy fruit tarts

Rustic Caramel Apples

These little guys were a big hit!
Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites 

Lots of Owlettes!

 More yummy treats -- Lemon Bars

 Chocolate covered Oreos with shots of milk

A special thanks to Cerise Keys for sharing her beautiful photos.

Thanks for letting EyeCandy be a part of your celebration. 
Best wishes for the whole family!!
