Rustic Garden Wedding Candy Buffet - my gift!

Sunday was a stunning day! The sunshine was out in force, we were dressed up in our best and my little brother married his gorgeous bride in my parents back yard - awwwwwww!
The bride and the groom, Sarah & Greame wanted a relaxed rustic garden wedding - nothing super fancy but a day where all their family and friends could kick off their shoes and celebrate with them. Mum and Dad's acre block was the perfect setting and with a gorgeous white marquee decked out with white furniture, flowers, doily bunting, candles, and a stunning huge chandelier surrounded by a garden it look amazing!

Sarah and Greame both asked for no gifts but I had to give them something so with their permission my gift to them was the wedding day's candy buffet! This was the first time I had done a candy buffet for a wedding and one for that size event too but boy oh boy did I have fun with it!!
The colours I was asked to stick to were soft pink and greens otherwise I was free to play :)

I had the perfect position to place the table... a little rustic shed my parents have in their yard which my clever dad built a few years ago. With some soft sheer fabric hanging and a sweet white chandelier from Shoppe With Lily hanging above the table my backdrop needed nothing more!

We made up a little sign that read:
This is a treat we are offering you,
on this beautiful day when we say "I do".
Use the scoops, choose what you like,
leave some for others, be polite.
As you enjoy your box of treats,
please remember; Love is Sweet!

And I had some very sweet chocolate bar wrappers made up by Cake Ink. that were personalised with the bride and grooms names and wedding date. They took 'centre stage' on my white milk glass cake stand from Sweet Style.

The table was a HIT!! I had to re-fill it early into the evening as all the guests had a ball filling their boxes with sweet goodies. My little boy, that's him in the green shorts, was never too far away from the table ;)
