Holiday Special: Sweet Treats and Spooky Reads

With this spook-taculicious holiday just around the corner, we’re switching gears from wedding trends to a more general topic: party treats! But not just any spooky party treats, either. In preparation for this year’s All Hallows’ Eve, we’ve selected some of our favorite desserts inspired by dark classics in literature. You’ll have your guests chuckling in no time once they see your clever creations!

Tuesday Trends: Popsicles

Popsicles are the perfect treat to beat the summer heat, so why not serve them at your summer wedding? Guests will love the snack, and they are a great way to add a pop of color to your desert table. You can also serve cocktail-inspired flavors at a cocktail hour!

Pour some champagne over your favorite flavor of popsicle for a fun twist! You can serve one flavor to add to a unified color scheme, or the guests can pick the flavor they want for an individualized drink.
