Platinum Soiree {Part 2 The Candy Buffet}

 

Yes! A candy buffet! I never imagined anything like this before and walking up to it was so fun! I felt like a 5-year old suddenly! The table-scapes were absolutely gorgeous from the HUGE lollipops to the beautiful flowers and colorful paper lanterns hanging from the ceilings!

I am always so impressed with all of the detail work that goes into everything that Disney does. This soiree was no different. You know that when they throw a party, it’s going to be good great! Just look at how every glass bowl has a beautiful ribbon tied in a bow around it and even the tags describing what each candy is has ribbon. The colors were vibrant, it was great fun!

We got to pick from all different colors of take-out boxes (that can be labeled however you’d like) and fill them up with all sorts of retro sweets like rock candy, whirly pops, candy ribbon, salt-water taffy, candy buttons, and jelly beans while champagne and sparkling cider was being passed around! Cheers!

My Take-Home Box ~ Bridal Ears and All!

For people like me who have been married for many years, it will be 18 next month, I’m thinking this would be a really fun way of kicking off a vow renewal or even just having a candy reception for 20 or so of my closest friends! I never would have known that this was even an option if I wasn’t a part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration! Just remember, almost anything is possible when you’re dealing with the Magic Makers at Disney!

Platinum Soiree {Part 1}

After getting settled into our room, my husband and the kids decided to go for a swim while I headed over toward Disney’s Wedding Pavilion for our Platinum Soiree!

We were greeted with Bridal Ears for the “brides” and Mickey Ear Top Hats for the “grooms”! There were also some cute buttons available!

We were treated to an unbelievable candy buffet. Yes, you read that right! I’ll show you pictures of it in my next post because it was so amazing that it deserves its own post. Next, we had the privilege of touring Franck’s Bridal Studio. What a treat that was!

There were a few cake options there for us to drool over…

This is just barely the beginning of what was in store for us at the Wedding Pavilion that afternoon! If you know anyone looking to plan a wedding, I can’t think of a more wonderful place to do it!

Checking In…to the GRAND FLORIDIAN!

 

Can I just say AMAZING? Usually when we pull through the gates at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, we are going to eat at one of their wonderful restaurants. This time when we pulled up and the Cast Member asked, “Checking in?”, I exclaimed “YES!!!!”

Here are some pics of some of the wonderful things we saw as we were heading into the front lobby from our car:

After we checked into our room, we headed over to the Grand Floridian Convention Center to get our conference credentials and what not. One of the things we received was this little beauty:

Just wait until you see what’s on there! I can’t wait to share it with you!

DisneySMMoms Celebration 2011

Wow! What a weekend I just had! I just returned from my second DisneySMMoms Celebration at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL and it was incredible!

I have so much information to share with you all and I’m working to get it posted for you. I am making a commitment, right here in black and white, that it will NOT take me until next year to tell you all about it!

We were treated like royalty while we were there from staying at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to private parties on ride sets and such!

The time I had there was magical. The friends I made there are irreplaceable. The things I learned there are phenomenal. I am inspired!

Stay tuned!
