We're doing a huge throwback today to one of our favorite mitzvah themes of all time- Candlyland! Don't we all remember sitting around the colorful board game at one time or another- filled with joy and excitement? That's exactly how the SYED team felt when we partnered with  Details Details!

Our venue? A warehouse- a completely blank slate- which made us so happy! We were able to hand pick and choose practically every detail of this design and totally transform the area!

Michael Tsao Photography did such a wonderful job capturing our ceiling installation and truly bringing it to life! Our paper pinwheel-turned-oversized candy necklace look takes a large chunk of time to create- but I mean, look at how fun and interesting it looks put together! In addition to the large candy necklace design, we gathered numerous gumball-colored balloons and bunched them together to create the look of- well, you guessed it- gumballs!

Rachel Jane Couture's gorgeous custom created invitations perfectly encapsulated our desired look and feel and we are so happy that she did the job! These dainty invitations had a pastel color scheme that brings delicious water taffy to our minds!

We chose to go with a pink shimmer linen for our tables which perfectly complemented our soft white and pink centerpieces. Natalie had tons of fun and exciting graphics brought into her mitzvah that made it so unique. For example, the iPhone color castle was an awesome hit at the party! Custom graphics were laid on the floor of the warehouse to recreate the Candyland theme.

Floral arrangements consisted of darling glass bell dome vases filled with coordinating water taffy while our modern white ikea vases featured a custom felt add on. Hydrangea sat nestled between dozens of white and pink roses.

We just love the height that the bell dome vases brought to the CP and found that the colors of the water taffy coordinated perfectly. Also, the clear ghost chairs flawlessly matched the glass in the vases. 

The candy bar featured multiple platforms covered in our favorite shimmer while different sized glass bell jars kept the station exciting to the eye.

We had a blast creating and designing this event and are always happy to be reminded of it!

Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that helped make this event so great!
