Retro Sweets Candy Cart - Oakwood House

Oakwood House is a grand Victorian Mansion located in Maidstone Kent and provides a perfect venue for any event. It has beautiful grounds, excellent function rooms and can offers hotel accommodation.

Don't be fooled by the age of the building it is actually very modern inside, we have also been guests in the past and can  recommend the venue.

We setup a retro sweets inspired Victorian Candy Cart here recently for a Wedding here recently. One of our gumball machines was also hired, loaded with Jelly Beans.

There was also a sweet cone for one of bridesmaids and page boy. (Notice colour co-ordinated to each of them)

Some real classics in this bride and groom selection, Parma Violets bit like marmite you either love them or hate them. Fizz Whizz, the popping candy that tingles your tongue. Double Dips, the ones used here also have advantage of having cola as an extra flavour. Wham bars, which fortunately have been rescued from extinction and who could forget Nerds in there especially designed boxes. Do you eat nerds separately or together?

We did try and convince the couple to use Humbugs , but unfortunately they were not a fan of them.  Would have been a fantastic addition given the era they are from.

Due to the setup being so retro we couldn’t resist adding a Rubik’s cube to give it a real 80’s feel. The challenge was accepted as it was returned to us completed!
