Glassware. Whether you are looking for candy jars or mason jars we've got a great selection in store for you. Most of our glassware is only available in store (or pick up from our warehouse) but we do have a few glassware options at Creative Bag Wedding that can be shipped out and you can see them here.

Ribbon. We have a large selection of ribbons and I'm sure that you will find something to match your colours and theme. Tie ribbons onto glassware to hold signage or to just add a little colour pop!

Paper Straws. These fun and colourful classics are not just for drinking! Use them to create marshmallow treats - you can find my tutorial for making them here.

Candy Scoops. Add some candy scoops inside each jar so that guests can serve themselves.

Rosanna Cake Stands and Bon Bon Footed Bowls. Unfortunately, we don't have these on our website but we do carry them in all of our stores. We have a great variety of different sizes and shapes and we are always adding new styles. 

Lollipop Sticks & Cupcake Liners. Add ribbon or washi tape to lollipop sticks for a fun detail on your cake pops. We have a variety of different cupcake liners and our selection is always changing.

Chalkboard Stickers. Add chalkboard stickers to wood skewers and create your own cupcake decorations. Tip: Use chalk markers on the stickers before adding them to the wood skewers.

Card Holders. Escot card holders can also be used on a sweet table to hold signage. We have a large selection of card holders like this one and you can find them here  at Creative Bag Wedding.

Wrapping Paper. Use wrapping paper to create book covers and then use the books to elevate your cake stands and glassware.

Candy Bags. Whether you use candy bags to package take home favors or just want to set out the bags for guests to fill themselves, you are sure to find lots of candy bag options to add to your sweet table decor. Bags with flat bottoms can be set up as you see them in neat little rows.

Baker's Twine & Chalkboard Tags. Use these to decorate plain candy bags and make them your own. Baker's twine is available in many different colours and new colour combinations are always being added. We have a variety of different chalkboards with clips that are easy to add to bag tops ... add a name or thank you message to each bag to personalize!

Linen Favor Bags. These ones have been embellished with glitter (find my tutorial here) and filled with more take home treats. If you are thinking about using any of our fabric bags to package candies it is best to use wrapped candies as these are not food safe.

Lunch Boxes. Display favor bags in a lunch box styled container. Our kraft lunch boxes can be painted to match your colour theme. I used black chalkboard paint on the one pictured above.

Market Trays. The wood market trays are perfect for presenting and organizing treats on the table. I turned a small one over here to elevate the lunch box filled with favor bags.

Mason Jars, Daisy Lids and Paper Straws. Fill them with milk or juice for little guests or something a little more "grown up" for your adult guests! Everyone will love them.

Linen Bunting. Give your sweet table some height by hanging a fun bunting above. In my last post I gave you some tips and tricks on how to decorate our plain linen and burlap banners. 
Here's how I painted the banners above using inexpensive acrylic craft paint:
1. Trace a saying onto the bunting using a disappearing ink fabric pen and then use paint to write out your saying. I used a mix of black and gold sparkle paint in my example.
2. Paint the banner black - I used black chalkboard paint on mine. Then paint a few colourful flowers or whatever you want to add a decorative element. I can add a letter or number to the blank space to personalize this banner over and over again with chalk markers
3. Use painter's tape to create stripes. Tip: I covered the entire banner with rows of painter's tape and removed select strips of tape to create the stripes.
4. Using a glass as a template and a disappearing ink fabric pen, I drew out a polka dot pattern. Tip: I wrote what colour to paint each dot so I could work out my pattern before painting.
5. Paint each banner a solid colour if you want to keep this simple!

Ok, are you in the mood for some sweets? I am!!
