Austin vibes. Corporate fun.

Design and branding can be so fun to incorporate into events and can be so crucial when throwing a corporate party where you want that brand to be noticed. How do you host a party for your co-workers and clients making it fun, celebratory, but also incorporating their logo or brand?

Three words … custom roaming treats!

The fabulous New York based interior design by-the-hour company, Homepolish, came to us requesting some desserts to be served at their 5 year anniversary party for their Austin branch. Desiring a dessert presentation that would capture the Austin vibe while incorporating their logo throughout the event, we knew exactly what to serve.

Held at the beautiful indoor and outdoor Malverde space in La Condesa, the perched view over 2nd Street offered a gorgeous backdrop of the skyline views of our downtown city. Representing our Austin pride, we served on our custom-made guitar strap tray and you better believe we packed that tray with some delicious sweetness! Serving funfetti, red velvet, and chocolate cupcakes, we topped each one with an edible Homepolish logo making them almost too cute to eat! And, because we’re Texas-proud, we packed some custom cactus-shaped lollipops and some sugary, sweet churros. Guests swooned over the presentation and enjoyed sweet treats throughout the night.  The interactive dessert option was definitely the icing on the cake to a wonderful evening.

If you want your event design and branding to be memorable at your next party – make it something sweet and edible! We will come up with the PERFECT option that is sure to excite and satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth.

A World of Pure Imagination

“Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination. Take a look and you’ll see into your imagination.”

-Gene Wilder

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!
