Farmer’s Museum Wedding – Part 2
Cookies, Dessert Displays, Sweets, Weddings

Today I’m posting the second half of Caitlin & Mike’s Farmer’s Museum Wedding, some of the sweets that went into their “Vintage Sweets Table”!  In case you missed it yesterday here’s a look at their cookie favors as well as their beautiful wedding which was featured on Style Me Pretty!  I wanted to make confections that were tasty, fit into the vintage/homemade theme, and could go into the fun “Sweets” bags we made for guests to take their treats home in.

First we made creamy vanilla caramels which were individually wrapped so that they could go into a jar for serving…

Next was pistachio nougat which was also individually wrapped…

I made three different kinds of candy bars, White Chocolate Amaretto, Milk Chocolate, and Bittersweet Orange.  Then I used some brown kraft paper as well as some twine to attach the tags and give the packaging a rustic feel.

Next were marshmallows in two flavors.  I used these as a chance to pull in some color to the overall table design. The light purple were vanilla and the light green were lime!

I made a huge batch of double chocolate caramel popcorn to go into jars for guests to take.  I love this popcorn for weddings as part of a dessert display, packaged as favors, or even just in a big bowl as a snack for guests presented with fun and colorful  sodas…it’s perfect for nibbling (not to mention very addictive!)!

Finally we also made dark and white chocolate dipped pretzel rods as well as some dark chocolate turtles.  I wanted the bags/boxes for guests to collect their treats in to have a rustic and vintage candy store feel.  We bought small white bags and I had a “SWEETS” stamp made to be stamped in periwinkle on each one.  I love using custom rubber stamps as an easy and relatively inexpensive way to add detail to paper goods.

Be sure to check out the full wedding gallery to see more details (it’s beautiful!!), and the final sweets table all set up and captured by the wonderful  Justin & Mary on Style me Pretty!

This was such a fun wedding to work on and Caitlin and Mike were a super sweet couple!  I’m very excited to say that I’ve added several recipes from this table to the collection we’re going to be making for our friends and family as gifts this holiday season!
