  2. I’m excited for macaroons at my wedding!

  3. As far as sweets, Im most looking forward to the kids table centerpieces! Instead of doing the traditional flowers on the kids table, we are putting our favorite candies in a bucket for the kids! We thought this would be a fun alternative. Some of the candies were choosing are M&M’s, Twix, Snickers, Rock Candy and hopefully more! Thank you for the opportunity!

  5. I am dong a candy buffet/bar at my wedding this October….we would love to have an assortment of yellow and green candies!!!!

  9. This book is unbelievable! I’m excited for jelly beans for favors!

  11. We are having a smaller wedding cake and also offering a variety of mini pies and tarts! We are thinking about adding some candy in there as well for the dessert table, so this would be great!

  12. I can’t wait for the nostalgic feel of rock candy! And her book looks beyond amazing!

  13. When I was younger, my dad would have to go out of town for work trips. Every time he came back, he would bring my sister and I new flavors of Jelly Belly Jellybeans to try. We had so much fun sitting around the dining room table trying to guess what each flavor was. I want to honor this memory by having an assortment of Jelly Bellys for my guests and my wedding!

  18. I am getting married in Sept. and are hagi to do the reception as inexpensive as possible. We wanted to do a small candy buffet, but didn’t think it was in the budget. If we could win this, it would actually get to happen!! Thank you so much for the opportunity, and I will be crossing my fingers and toes!!!

  19. Having a Candy bar was something we talked about, but budget wise, it didn’t quite fit in. This would be AMAZING! Grey & yellow are our colors, so we wanted lemon drops, maybe some banana runts, sliver colored m&ms and of course some lollipops!

  20. We’re still working out details for dessert, but we will for sure have a traditional fruitcake for my Australian fiance!

  21. We are doing a candy buffet and would LOVE to have the book on hand for some great tips and advice!!

  22. We LOVE the Lemoncello Cream Torte from Cheesecake Factory, so we’re having that catered in as our cake!

  23. Candy … would have to be cotton candy!

  24. I would be so excited to win because I want to do a mini candy buffet since we’re only having a wedding cake as our dessert. Being able to do a mini candy buffet would be AMAZING too!!

  25. My fiance and I are not cake people, so we’re going to have a combination of candy, caramel dipped manzanitas with sea salt, creme brule, fruit and a campfire for s’mores!! Hopefully the cake will not be missed. ;)

  26. oohhhhhh, pretty swirly pops and rock candy!! The book looks absolutely gorgeous.

  27. Can’t wait for vanilla macarons :)

  28. i’m going to make some of my delicious blueberry filled lemon cupcakes for our at-home- reception!

  33. I’d love to have the blue and yellow squiggly pops for a bright and fun decoration, as well as favors for the guests!

  34. I would love to do shades of blue candies…just like my girls are wearing!

  35. We’re doing a candy bar at our wedding and stamping little Chinese take-out boxes for guests to fill with candy. I can’t wait to buy all the candies…we aren’t doing a color theme but decided to use our favorite candies in bulk….candies like starbursts, m&m’s and skittles. And a cotton candy machine! I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  36. for our dessert table, we are getting cakes, pies, and goodies from local bakeries. for our candy bar, we are getting our favorites – sour patch kids, gummi bears, snickers!

  37. I LOVE black & white cookies, and my fiance loves napoleons, so we’re doing those in addition to wedding cake!

  38. We LOVE sweets so we will be having a little wedding cake, but our main desserts will be a huge table full of pies and cobblers and cupcakes. YUM! I love CandyWarehouse.com and would love to have sweets made by them on our special day :)

  39. We’re doing everything mini! The wedding cake is just for us and the guests will enjoy a dessert table filled with a variety of mini items. Mini brownies, mini cupcakes, mini pies. I love dessert so why decide? Have them all! :)

  40. We have a slight baseball theme at our reception so I’m thinking of getting baseball cakepops! Yum!

  41. We will be doing a traditional wedding cake, with a table of assorted cupcakes, the idea of winning $100 towards candy would be a dream as I want to fill my centerpiece vaces with candy hearts and assorted candy for my guests. Hope I win!!

  42. Oh there are so many things to choose from. My sister has started making cakes, so will hopefully be able to have her make us something and my aunt makes awesome decorated brownies, so of course I need brownies. I really think it would be awesome to have a brownie cake rather than regular cake. Having candy to add would be awesome as well as the book because I think the whole wedding will be DIY, so it will come in handy. I would love to have the candy for the guests to take home as part of our thank you’s!

  43. I’m an avid baker & lover of all things sweet so desserts are going to be hugely important at our reception! :) My must-haves at the moment are: NY-Style Cheesecake (I’m originally from NY- represent!), Rhubarb pie, Coconut dessert cake, Assorted (handmade.. ohh yes) Chocolate truffles, Italian creme cupcakes, Carrot cupcakes, & of course.. white & chocolate cake pops. & Oh yes, there will be candy. We’re forgoing the traditional multi-layer wedding cake & going for desserts that represent ourselves & our families.. I’m super excited & I know our guests are going to love it.

  44. LOVE Amy Atals Tables and have been looking forward to this book. Looking forward to assorted dessert table. Cake, candies, brownies, krispie treats, cheescakes oh my! =)

  45. Planning a fucshia and silver candy table!!

  46. My mom bought little heart-shaped cake pans at Target on clearance after Valentine’s day, and we’re going to be making mini cakes together!

  47. I can’t wait to make a whimsical table with colored candy tiers and wonderful color coordinated designs. This book looks awesome. Even if I don’t win it, I’m buying it! So many ideas. Each of our kids at our wedding will get to choose their favorite colors and help us decorate the table.

  48. My mom and I are having to make everything for my wedding reception, and really could use this!! It would stretch a LONG way!! We need white and light blue m and ms for cookies we are baking which are soo expensive ! Not to mention candy to put in the favor boxes. Thank you so much for this opportunity!!

  49. I am most excited about a French macaron tower!

  50. Well, those are the prettiest candy buffets I’ve ever seen!!! We wanted to do one for my daughter’s wedding in September but decided it just wasn’t in the budget. I just love the idea of the cute back drops. It really creates the illusion that the table is more full than it actually is, which would really stretch the budget without looking cheap. Cute, cute, cute!

  51. My sister is getting married in September and we are so excited to make a creative candy buffet for her reception! This gift card could help us so much! We want to have cake pops too!

  52. I am excited about gummy bears! So delicious! aandj8804[at]gmail.com

  53. This is an amazing giveaway! The book looks great, so does the candy! :) I’m excited about yellow candies, to go with our black, white, and yellow theme! :)
