Candy Station: A Step Back in Time

Candy stations are so popular these days, it can be hard to put a unique spin on it.  I love the use of the vintage candy shop backdrop!  It makes you feel like you have stepped back in time in a land far, far away.

Great idea! Candy stations sound simply delightful.

That far away land still exists! The image used for the backdrop is of the Cottage of Sweets, which is still in operation on Ocean Avenue in Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA. As tiny as it is, the shop is a fantastic resource for hard to find "old-time" candies as well as locally-made sweets and is a beloved landmark for locals and tourists alike. I recognized the building immediately and wanted to share should anyone be headed out our way to California and want to see this little slice of heaven in person!

Wow Mia! What a GOOD eye you have! I had no idea that was a real shop. It looks like a picture out of a fairy tale. Thanks so much for sharing the info!!
