Happy Monday everyone!
Today’s bridal shower is courtesy of Martha Stewart and I assure you, you will not be disappointed. Darcy Miller, Martha’s editorial director, had the pleasure of hosting a shower for Dylan Lauren (Yes, Ralph Lauren’s daughter!), who is tying the knot in June. My head nearly exploded when I saw the elements of this party so I just had to share it.
Dylan Lauren owns a candy shop in New York City called Dylan’s Candy Bar. It is the largest candy store in the world, so what better theme than a candy shower for the candy queen herself.
Darcy did an amazing job personalizing each and every detail, from the monogrammed custom chocolate bar invitations to the candy buffet in the shape of the couples initials.
Check out some of the photos from this amazing party.
The Invitation Candy Buffet
With candy and personalization on the brain, I thought I would share some of the Gush Girls’ favourite places to purchase personalized treats.
M&M’s are a fan favourite, and perfect for all kinds of special occasions. Their website allows you to select colours, create a message or image for the M&M’s, and then pick your packaging. What could be better than that? http://www.mymms.com/utility.aspx?src=112864
Whimsy Wraps is a Canadian company that allows you to create custom chocolate bar wrappers; so you can make your very own chocolate bar invite just like Dylan’s. This is also a great option for personalized favours for your wedding or baby shower. http://www.whimsywraps.com/default.asp
Mad Batter Bakers in Toronto makes some of the tastiest cookies around. They take custom orders, so you can personalize these confections for your wedding, shower, or party! They also have some pretty stellar cookies that are always available. http://www.madbatterbakers.com/custom_order_cookies.htm
