Project #1 – dessert/candy buffet

Syafrein’s side organizing a kenduri/baby shower for Hessa! I volunteered to take care of the berkats and the mini dessert/candy buffet table.
Pictures of actual event will be at the very end of the post. 🙂

Looked through so many sites and googled pics of food and sweets. So fun! Inspirations!



So far, I have choc/vanilla cupcakes for berkats. They come in a clear individual box so I ordered stickers to be placed on the box. Can you envision that? Whee!



Then for the dessert/candy buffet table… It’s a very girly theme so I had these sweets/biscuits in mind:

• jelly beans
• marshmallows
• lollipops
• hershey kisses
• m&m’s
• almost famous amos cookies with white choc chips

I have Azlin helping to look through the containers available in the kitchen. If not, I have 2 options from ikea and white plates.



Last but not least, polka dotted nutella blossoms! Huzzah!


Then I realized I needed candy scoops for the jelly beans, marshmallows and cookies. So had to go asking people where to get them…


Last but not least, I needed labels for the items, plastic bags for takeaways and fasteners. Scrapbooking paper was used for the labels, plastic bags and fasteners from SKP.

I’m all set right? Hmmm. Oh yes, Enn mentioned something as decoration. Still thinking about that…

So today SIL calls me and says she’s going Daiso. Hurrah! So the scoops and plastic bags are settled. Gonna tie lil ribbons on the scoops.


Was browsing through the net yesterday while the baby fed and I really really really wanted pink m&m’s so badly. Found out that the only place selling those is candylicious, taka. Since its an all candy/choc store, might as well get the rest of the sweet treats there too. Especially the jelly beans, lollipops and marshmallows!

Quick discussion with MIL yesterday about the things needed for setup and the colour theme. So fun!

I made some tent labels while si kecik was sleeping. Determined to make a proper candy buffet. Not sure if I should get flowers and a display piece. Hmmm. Eh, seems like its not so simple anymore! Lol…

14th October

Well, had some time to myself before I got all caught up and forgot. I completed the tent labels and made a lil display piece for the table.


Unfortunately, one of my penmanship markers are nowhere to be found so the handwriting on the tent labels are… Kiddishly urgh.

Heading down to taka tomorrow for the candies and to look for an outfit for Hessa.

Bought the candies. Really think I could have gotten more value for money if I had more time to plan this event. It’s ok, 1st birthday maybe? Hehs.

Outfit for birthday girl has a bit of a problemmmmmm. Didn’t have much choice in dresses coz she’s so slender. (I swear she’s growing longer and longer instead of chubbier.) Tops and dresses fit okay. Pants or tights are so difficult to find. Got something from GAP but it’s in the 3-6 range. Pfft. Let’s see how to make the outfit work. Don’t mind stitching a lil bit. (Mummy is determined to make the outfit work, seriously.)
