The One with Candy, candy, candy!!

I have a HUGE HUGE HUUUGE weakness for anything candy-striped. I just find them so pretty, sweet and dainty. If there's anything you wanna sell me just slap on the candy-stripes and I'm sold!

I was researching pink and green candies for my candy buffet table for the big day

remember this? beautiful table from Amy Atlas and my inspiration

when I came across this and I nearly died.

This is a table designed by Amy Moss. (Are all uber talented dessert tale designers called Amy?? haha)

soooo pretty!! I love the backdrop. I wonder how I can do something similar for mine without like having to move an actual plywood wall or something to my ballroom foyer. Maybe I can get a large piece of candy-striped fabric and get the hotel staff to hang it up for me on one wall and place the table in front of it. I'll worry about that later.

Here are the pink and green candy inspirations I found online:

All pictures taken from another stunning DIY blogger Torie Jayne

they look so yummy!

clearly it'll be hard to find sweets like these in singapore but we have a few yummy looking ones ourselves!
i'm planning to get maybe mini strawberry and green apple mentos or pink and green candy from Sticky; to put into clear envelopes for the boards, strawberry Kit-Kats re-wrapped with my own japanese inspired wrappers on white trays and glass containers filled with the sweets featured below.

following photos are taken by me ;)

sugar coated strawberry and green apple gummies

pretty pastel marshmellows

gummy filled pink and white marshmellows

these fake looking (haha) mushrooms are surprisingly yummy!

don't they look delicious??

i wish i had get started on getting the supplies for my table right away!!

The One with the search for THE dress begins!!

The hunt for the perfect wedding gown begins!!

I'm still wondering if it's way too early, it is still one year to the big day but I can't wait!! So itching to do something right now hehe.

I have appointments with The Aisle and Di Gio Bridal on 31st July and I have my bestest, most trusted sisters with me to give me advice. That's half of my dream come true.

I had wanted to hold my bridal shower with my gown selection; ask the studio to set aside a private area for us, I'll cater for some high tea and maybe a little champagne, we'll have some sandwiches and tea and toast each other with champagne; gossip and girl talk while I hop in and out of the dressing room in my gowns. It'll be such a great afternoon but alas most studios here are either too small or too busy to accomodate such a request.

So I'll settle with half of my dream, have lunch with my darlings then troop over to the studios for some gown shopping.
Joyce, Julia, Weiling, Yingchao and Yanmei.
The people who have known me the longest and best, people who keep me grounded and guided.
So happy to have them with me for the fun-est part of the preparations!!

Oh yes, I must share these, my insiprations for the perfect dress!
