Step right up! Come one, come all!

A night filled with circus peanuts, cracker jacks and illusionists, The Cupcake Bar was excited to play a part in the ILEA Austin ASE Awards Gala. We are ESPECIALLY excited to announce we were nomimated for “Spirit of ILEA” and even won the ILEA scholarship to ILEA Live in Calgary in August – we are SO EXCITED!

Held at the classic AT&T Center, Big Time Creative really out-planned themselves with a circus obscura themed gala dressing the room from head to toe. With rentals from Premiere and Marquee along with lighting from Ilios, guests were in for a circus experience like no other. Floral from Epic Event Design and Zuzu’s Petals painted the space beautifully pulling out the bright colors in the dark, ominous room. Tunes from DJ Gatsby and Terra Vista Springs had every guest in a dancing mood.

Featuring our fabulous favor wall, The Cupcake Bar provided a real treat for every guest allowing them to create and customize their own take home sweets bag. Guests would walk up our interactive treats gal, grab an empty goodie bag, then help themselves to sweet treats on our favor wall – choosing between caramel dipped apples, cupcakes, candy cigarettes, pop rocks, cracker jacks and more.  Oh my! The combinations were endless! Thinking of it as a “sweet buffet on a wall”, every adult left with a HUGE childlike, mile-wide smile on their face with their goodie bag filled to the brim with their tasty favorites.

In need of a unique, interactive dessert element at your next themed event? Keep The Cupcake Bar in mind! Customizing our colors, treats, and even wall backdrop to fit your event needs is what we love to do. We can fit in and dress the part for any and every occasion – we do it all.

We look forward to putting on our brainstorming hats to come up with a special idea that is sure to WOW both you and your guests!
