Thanh of Sweet Event Styling emailed us this beautiful blue and white candy buffet that she created for her little nephew, Hugo. She certainly didn’t hold back when it came to design and attention to detail – Hugo now has his own range of personalised water bottles, chocolate bars, and candy jar labels, not to mention personalised noodle boxes, decorations, and cards. Even the backdrop was lovingly custom made on a grand scale. Hugo could easily start manufacturing his own range of themed party supplies to stores nationwide and set himself up for life if he wanted to. We are mighty impressed by Thanh’s painstaking work and humbled by the resulting buffet.
Candy buffets are indeed works of art. They take months to prepare, which means it’s possible Thanh had the concept all worked out while little man Hugo was still in utero. Candy buffets take hours to set up and only minutes to destroy. Luckily, with a few nice photos, these lofty masterpieces can live on to inspire others. I’m sure many of us will take inspiration from this particularly gorgeous candy buffet.
