new :: Quin Candy

Sugar crush! We picked up a new Quin Candy order last week just in time for Valentine’s Day! Raspberry lollipops, blackberry tangerine and strawberry lemon gumdrops, and new Dreams Come Chew now with fruit punch and pineapple + coconut (!!) flavours!

Based in Portland (OR), Quin Candy is handmade in small batches using top notch ingredients such as real Oregon berries and specially blended fruit and vegetable extracts for colour and flavour. Each piece of candy is then cut by hand before being packaged for you to enjoy – YUM. We popped open the strawberry lemon gumdrops and we had to hide them before we finished the bag. Taste testing, right? Seriously though. Pick up a bag (or 2 or 3!) online or come by the shop before we eat them all!

gcuk :: sneak peeks :: petitplat

I first discovered PetitPlat through my obsession with miniatures and especially with my love of fake food, so when I received her application to Got Craft? UK, I almost fainted. Well, maybe not quite, but there was a lot of hand waving, smiles and maybe a few screams of joy! The amount of effort and detail that Stéphanie puts into each clay sculpture is simply amazing especially when you realize that most of her work is smaller than a penny!

Meet Stéphanie and shop for miniature versions of your favourite food at Got Craft? London on Sunday, November 27th, 2011 from 11am-5pm at the Tooting Tram and Social!

wedding wednesday :: dessert tables

A round up of dessert table images that I have “pinned” to my wedding board using pinterest (follow me here). No more plain white table cloths with a single layer of sweet squares and wedding cake. Couples are getting an A+ when it comes to dessert table displays and it is definitely paying off. Think cupcakes… sweets… pies… cakes… All of your favourites treats displayed on the prettiest antique tables, dressers and drawers with retro lace and linens. So picture worthy!

images found via style me pretty, green wedding shoes, love & lavender and oh, hello friend: you are loved.
