Ask for help!
Party Planning Tip 14
Enlist professional help! Need help cleaning? Hire a cleaner to do the less desirable tasks such as the bathrooms. Hate cooking? Hire a caterer. No one will think less of you, and you will have more time to enjoy the tasks you love, such as decorating.
How do you show your bridesmaids how much you appreciate all their help throughout your wedding? A gift is a small way to show your appreciation for helping out. No matter what kind of budget you are on, you can find something nice to say thank-you.

I met Katie at my WPIC training and let me tell you, she is really lovely! Katie specializes in anything sweet! From specialized candy buffet tables, to favours, or edible centerpieces, she is your girl! Katie does not just fill some bowls with candy, she creates a design, a piece of art work to wow your guests. I recently sat down with Katie to go over exactly what she does and how she does it.
What services do you offer?
If it involves sugar, we offer it! Our most popular services are candy
bars and dessert tables with a close second going to favours. Just
recently we started creating edible centrepieces as well!
What makes your service so unique?
We make everything custom to your event or tastebuds! Our passion is
creativity and we thrive on making each and every service more of an ‘art
installation’ at your event, giving people lots to look at and talk about!
Why should a bride and groom hire you rather then creating a candy buffet
IT’S NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS! The investment made for the jars, scoops,
bags and decor alone could put your budget way over let alone the retail
prices you’re going to pay at bulk food stores. Our price is an all
inclusive one and it means you get all of those things I mentioned above
plus we set everything up and tear everything down at the end of the
wedding. All you need to do is give us some inspiration to create and
we’ll do the rest!
What is your most favourite item that you offer?
Candy apples! The one part of the family business that really has made a
huge impact on Candy by Katie has been these little sweet delights. It’s
more of a sentimental reason…..my Dad actually makes them when we get an
order. It reminds me of when I was young and around him at some of the
festivals he worked and stores he owned. He’s too scared I’m going to
burn myself so he makes them and I wrap them. The best father/daughter
moment I could ask for!
