Gotta Love the Details!

Earlier this week, we featured a sweet bridal shower for Dylan Lauren, daughter of designer Ralph Lauren. These sweet details included everything from the candy wrapper invites to gumball garland. we absolutely love these creative ideas that's sure to please any candy loving couple!

If you loved Dylan's "Sweet Soiree", than you'll love these additional sweet treat inspirations!


Bubble Gum Backdrop -- Make your pictures pop with a lively bubblegum backdrop. Just take a standard white poster board, grab a hot glue gun and place the gumballs tightly together. Want to create some "pop" art for your guests? Purchase some standard size canvases and do the same thing -- just hang them throughout the reception or create a photo station with a photographer near the door.

Chocolate Table Numbers --Hit your local baking store for cool molds and colored baker's chocolate. Add tall wooden dowels to the mix and place them in the chocolate before they cool. Display them in a tall clear vessel filled with M&M's or rock candy for full effect.

Rock Candy Chandelier - A beautiful twist on a glamorous must, you can make your own with these simple instructions from Once Wed (

Candy Topiaries -- Table centerpieces that are easy to make, all you need is a styrofoam ball (check your local craft store), a glue gun, ribbon and a plastic pedestal. Pick candy in your colors for a more unified look and aesthetic.

Sucker Napkin Rings -- Why spend extra on fancy place setting when you can create your own on the cheap? We love the idea of taking a rainbow sucker, tying it with some fancy ribbon and then wrapping it all together with a colorful napkin (as seen in Family Circle).

Candy Button Cake -- A favorite from back in the day, take inspiration from this famous penny candy and decorate your dessert with sweet simplicity.

**We absolutely adore these sweet details! Tell us what you think! Are you planning a sweet surprise for your guests?
