So many people we speak to about events in the barn LOVE the idea of an amazing dessert barn. Although the barn is very much a DIY event space, I try to remind people that when it comes to the day of (any type of event) there is going to be VERY little time to worry about a ton of details. If you don't have a ton of friends and family to volunteer their time to assist with the set up then we suggest investing in a pro that will make everything look perfect. We recently worked with Kelli from KLM events and there is no one is this area that comes up wtih more creative and beautiful dessert tables. This beer theme birthday party dessert table was stunning in the barn. Kelli put so much TLC in to this table and trust me when I tell you that if you want this look, you're going to need to invest. She spent hours on this table! Something you surely don't want to worry about on your wedding day. Check out her other work here: https://www.facebook.com/klmevents
I think in 2014 we will need to have an award show at the end of the year for most creative parties in the barn. ;) Some details from our two parties this weekend were AMAZING! "Stock their bar" wall for the bridal shower and the burlap brooch bust form (for the bride to make her brooch bouquet) were our top picks
I was so delighted yesterday when I noticed a few large tray of familiar cupcakes coming in the barn for setup! Indulgence Cupcakery of Haddonfield, who had just catered my wedding cupcakes, was also the dessert vendor for yesterday's barn bridal shower. Unfortunately, I did not get a shot of the complete set up yesterday but it was gorgeous! I especially loved their tree stump cupcake stand. I cannot even begin to tell you how many of my wedding guest are STILL talking about my wedding cupcakes. (This was over two months ago!) You can never go wrong with cupcakes! It's awesome to provide your guests with a variety of "cake" options versus one or two. How many times have you been to a wedding where you LOVEDDDD to the cake? Not often! Do yourself and your guests a favor and consider this as an alternative to one boring cake ;) Below is a pic from my wedding. 300 cupcakes, 10 different flavors, insanely amazing icing = wedding dessert heaven :) www.indulgencecupcakery.com/
Hi! I am Alyssa and I manage bookings for the barn. I have been known to to sneak through the back door, stalk our parties and secretly snap some pics. Our clients are VERY creative and we love nothing more than to see them, along with their party vendors, embrace the unique qualities and space of the barn. I'll post as many pictures as I can of some amazing ideas and vendors we've seen!
