“Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination. Take a look and you’ll see into your imagination.”
Only in a child’s greatest imagination could anyone dream of having one of the biggest, most over-the-top, real-life Willy Wonka wonderland parties, modeled after the childhood book: Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. We were so honored to be a part of this grand event held at The Driskill Hotel for Charlie, celebrating his Bar Mitzvah. When young Charlie (Yes, his real name!) and his parents needed help pulling off a dessert buffet of candy and sweet treats, we created something extra special and unique for this one-of-a-kind event. The Bar Mitzvah included everything from Oompa Loompas to whimsical food and decor. No detail was overlooked and, it truly was magical.
Planned by the extraordinary Caplan Miller Events , with design elements by Townsley Designs, a breathtaking real-life Willy Wonka candyland transformed the ballroom of The Driskill. One would even believe they had been transported to the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory themselves. With chocolate scented air throughout the rooms, guests were in dazzled with every sense by the theatrical event.
Definitely one of the most fun filled candy bars we have ever created, guests of all ages were able to pick from giant lollipops, Charlie’s Wonka bars, custom lickable wallpaper, fireballs, everlasting gobstoppers, golden eggs, candy necklaces, and pop rocks, just to name a few. Guests created their own goodie bag of treats and, as imagined, the Wonka bars were the biggest hit!
No Willy Wonka themed Bar Mitzvah would be complete without an Oompa Loompa helping serve all these sweet treats to the the guests. Our staff dressed up as an Oompa Loompa and greeted guests, while making sure everyone had plenty of sugar. And, in attendance, was a very, large blue Violet Beauregarde who made the room, larger than life.
Needless to say, The Cupcake Bar had a BLAST creating and customizing this very special event. Themed parties is always one of our favs, so always keep us in mind – we always like to dress the part, too!
Colors, themes, company logo – it’s all the small details that can make a BIG impact on your event, and each one has their own personality and branding they want their guests to experience. A brand though, is more than just a promise of course – it’s identity, recognition, and character.
Parading a company’s brand at an event can happen in many different ways. BUT our favorite way is serve guests a sweet treat that will keep them coming back for more! Because who doesn’t love a cupcake with a side of branding?!
The Cupcake Bar can fit all your needs whether you want our full-service cupcake bar or our roaming treats bar. Everything from customizing our toppings and candies to linen and attire – we want to be the added touch that makes your event both memorable and fun for everyone!
Check out this boot-stopping welcome party!
Serenaded by the honky-tonk King, Dale Watson, and planned by the fabulous Couture Details Events, these Chicago guests were in a treat! Held at the uber-hip Austin’s Container Bar, everyone was able to taste the true meaning of southern hospitality with a craft cocktail, live music, and a cupcake.
Roaming with our “Loyalty = Sweet” cupcake trays, our cupcake bartenders wandered through the crowd making sure every guest tasted the sweet side of branding once – maybe even two or three times (they were mini cupcakes … half the calories!)
When it comes to planning the interactive element at your next corporate event, let The Cupcake Bar be your special touch! We’d love customize and coordinate your brand serving your guests a SWEET reminder of why your company rocks!
