Words make the wedding, and when you feature fabulous quotes in your ultra-personalized wedding, the entire celebration is more you. So add an extra element of Wow Factor to your wedding, engagement party or bridal shower’s dessert buffet by incorporating sweets-themed quotes into your dessert table design. You might DIY a large sign to hang behind the dessert or candy buffet, display little framed signs on the dessert buffet, or invite guests to pick out their own sweets-inspired quotes from a bowl filled with your adorably printed out quote cards.

Here are some delicious little sweets- and candy-themed quotes I found out www.brainyquotes.com, one of my favorite sources for both classic and contemporary quotes on any subject you’d like.

Oreo Cookies Celebrates 100 Years, So Bring Oreos to Your Wedding!

It’s Oreo’s 100th birthday this year! Did you know that the very first Oreo cookie was sold in Hoboken? We’re proud to call this fabulous black and white cookie classic our own, here in New Jersey, and to celebrate its 100th birthday, I thought about the different ways that the Oreo can be used in your wedding and pre-wedding parties plans.

You know that I love Li-Lac Chocolates’ chocolate-covered Oreos:
