Treats to Go

Our motto on favors: “If you can eat or drink it, it’s worth it” Otherwise, skip the added cost because most likely guests will leave it behind or throw it away. Now, if you are giving away engraved Tiffany luggage tags, or Waterford Crystal paper weights, then that is another story. But, most brides don’t have the budget for something like that. What guests truly seem to love, is when they are offered special sweet treats, in addition to the cake, such as a candy buffet, truffles, a gourmet cookie bar, or specialty dessert. And, a lot of guests want to take the treat home, to enjoy later on. The wedding to-go boxes featured here can go beyond just M & M’s and truffles (although those are still great), and can be packed full with whatever you can dream of. The best thing to pack is your favorites as a couple. We have seen things like milk and cookies, cupcakes, Chips and Salsa, Bloody Mary’s and Cosmo’s, and even S’mores. We had one client that offered guests famous items from where they grew up, such as Chocolate Buckeyes, Local Beer, and homemade cookies. If you love candy but have too many favorites to choose from, then have a candy buffet with bags next to it so guests can pick and choose and bring home with them at the end of the night. Did you know Elite Events offers a candy buffet rental? Yep. we do! We can provide everything you need! Here is a photo of a candy/dessert table we did for a baby shower.

You can really make this buffet a decor element in your wedding, so have fun with it. These to-go boxes are also a great way to send your guests home with any of your delicious leftover wedding cake. Traditionally, this is what a groom’s cake was for – to send guests home with cake. After all that boogying, no matter what you choose, guests will sure appreciate these midnight snack thank you gifts.

On Top of Mt. Holly

Sneak Peak into our Real Wedding: Brandon & Katie

Vintage Romance is how I would describe this beautiful wedding. Every detail is packed with personality in a lovely vintage package. Katie and Brandon's guests enjoyed a ski lift ride up to the top of Mt. Holly, were they experienced a picturesque ceremony followed by tea, lemonade and a entertaining hay ride to the reception.
Katie's parents Sue and Joe were such a pleasure to work with. This is one creative couple. Each and every detail was Sue's vision and with Joe and Elite Events assistance her vision became a reality. It was wonderful see how all of the details and planning finally came together. Sue is a avid collector of all things vintage. She has spent the last several years collecting, vases, candle holders, vessels, candelabras, rustic doors, old ski's etc. She finally found the perfect way to utilize all of her fabulous finds. The ski lodge at Mt. Holly was the perfect backdrop for Katie and Brandon's wedding celebration, and what a celebration it was! The reception was aglow with roughly 300 candles, and the smell of fresh flowers filled the air. This wedding was exactly what the couple envisioned, unique, beautiful and a whole lot of FUN! Congratulations Katie and Brandon it was a sincere pleasure handling all of your day of details!


It begins with an invitation :) Love these pocket fold invites!
