“thanks for your help & thanks for the letters!”
theme: royal purple & royal blue
JOandJARS‘s 1st time working with a wedding planner, but we did get to meet the lovely bride a month before her big day. royal purple & royal blue were the wedding’s theme colours, which perfectly complemented the luxurious Fullerton Hotel’s sophistication.
this roof garden on level 5 of the fullerton hotel is one of our favourite locations!
featuring the couple’s dogs :)
the little touches; our attention to detail
an entire tray of personalised dark chocolate hershey’s kisses!
1kg of macadamias, almonds, cashews, pistachios
personalised cellophane bags for takeaway
“thanks once again for the lovely set-up! it’s exactly what we wanted and more!”
JOandJARS‘s super-sweet client texted us her appreciation almost immediately after her wedding luncheon at the Mandarin Oriental, Singapore! the gorgeous bride was such a joy to work with, because she knew exactly what she wanted – right from the start when she 1st contacted us in november 2012, she had already decided on her food items: pink m&ms, hershey’s kisses, garrett popcorn, ferrero rocher, pocky, gem biscuits, individually-wrapped marshmallows.
theme: classy vintage with ivory, gold & blush pink!
floral centrepiece, arrangements with twinkling candles, personalised hershey’s kisses. timeless, glorious and classy, the ‘love’ theme was perfect for this beautiful couple!
“thanks for everything! am very pleased with the set-up & everything”
we had so much fun preparing for our client’s son’s sesame street theme, with the focus on cookie monster (because it’s blue and boys=blue?). best part? the 3.5week-old baby’s super cute ♥ also, we were honoured when our client asked us to send her photos immediately after the event, which was followed by several sms/email requests on the same day!
& part 2 of our set-up the lunch party; because the focus was on cookie monster, it only made sense for the 50 party favours to be chocolate chip cookies! of course, not without JOandJARS customisation: sticker labels + food labels + ribbons + gift tags :)
fruit jellies, mentos kidz, marshmallows, M&Ms
goldfish crackers (remember dorothy, elmo’s pet goldfish?) & personalised serving cups + takeaway bags
apologies to SQ: we didn’t save all the nice things you said before our whatsapp crashed – so we no longer have a record of your compliments & kind words to us :’(
this morning, the bride&groom were surprised to see our candy buffet (upon returning to the bride’s house for tea ceremony after tea ceremony at the groom’s house); what a sweet sponsorship by SQ, the bride’s sister, JOandJARS‘s youngest client to date! SQ contacted us a mere 2 weeks before her sister’s big day, but we had fun planning & brainstorming with her. gotta love a client who knows exactly what she wants :)
theme: pink & purple
the JOandJARS team had a few dozen of these high-quality roses imported from ecuador – just look at the shades of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink! we love how, like fingerprints, no two rainbow roses are alike. produced under the most stringent environmental & social conditions, these roses have a shelf-life of ~15days :) wanna know more? read our rainbow rose article!
“thank you so much for the beautiful ‘sweets buffet’ you made for my daughter. also for the late tear-down. my plan actually is to do it myself but you made it exactly the way i want it. more than what i imagine”
recognise this from your childhood? we made 30 of these for an adorable little girl’s 1st birthday party :) best part? the adults loved the lollipops as much as the kids did – “these are SO cute,” they gushed. & we’ll have you know it was super fun making the ring pops!
our set-up for the babyTV fan, complete with themed banners & food labels!
our customised chocolate bars + JOandJARS ribbons!
length of table: 360cm x 90cm
pink: the bride’s favourite colour
the JOandJARS team was honoured to be of service to this beautiful couple on their wedding night at Grand Hyatt Singapore Hotel. it was especially meaningful working on the ‘dragonfly’ theme; the bride & groom’s love story began when they first met at the now-defunct mandopop club ‘dragonfly’ – how sweet is that!
for the first time, the JOandJARS had the opportunity to liaise with both the bride (via email) & groom (via calls + texts) regarding this candy buffet for their pastel-themed wedding luncheon at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel. unfortunately, we didn’t get to meet the lovely couple as we arrived quite early for set-up, and missed them again during the tear-down.
we love (pun unintended!) how clients always request for this ‘LOVE’ sign to be included in their set-up. after their wedding, some even ask us to help them purchase it for display in their new house! so. if you can’t find it in stores, let us know – we’ll get one for you :)
a wedding dinner at Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa – JOandJARS‘s last event for 2012! interestingly, this client approached us 4 months before her wedding with a pink+gold theme in mind. after 1 month, however, the theme was changed to deep red + deep purple + orange. another month later, the couple decided on a deep red + deep purple + yellow/gold theme. it’s great, because we love bold colours!
when we arrived for set-up, the hotel staff were still clearing up after the previous wedding, so we waited awhile for our table and accompanying linen. during this time we chatted with the couple’s enthusiastic reception helpers, who were excited about the candy buffet and discussed among themselves which item to eat first. so, it was no surprise that when we were done setting up, the reception ladies were the first to help themselves :)
this was the 1st wedding where we didn’t get to catch the couple – they were at another venue for solemnisation when we were setting up and when we went back to tear-down, they were just about to do their 2nd march-in. as such, we were pleasantly surprised when the groom approached us just as we were leaving, to thank us for the candy buffet. that made our day(night)!
“thanks for the lovely candybar. the guests loved it – both adults & kids! thanks once again and all the best to JOandJARS!”

this super sweet lady deserves the “most patient client” award! when she 1st approached the JOandJARS team in early-september, we were just about to go on leave so we didn’t have time to conceptualise or send her a proposal. we then advised her to contact other companies, as we would only be back in singapore in october & didn’t want to hold up her wedding preparations. to our surprise, a week after our return she contacted us again to say that she hadn’t approached anyone else. however, we were busy preparing for events & had a lot of admin stuff to catch up on. as such, it took us some time to get back to her again.
when we finally got down to talking, however, she was such a joy to work with! this client knew exactly what she wanted, and indicated her preferences right from the start. of course, it was even more fun because she chose to inject Christmas elements! we soon learnt that she is a foodie & was recently a guest judge on channel U’s ‘melting pot’《新新料理》. it was really nice, getting to know more about her as a person – not just a client. also, this was our 1st time receiving a request to make signs preventing guests from eating the candy.
“when my emcee announced for people to go take the candy there was an uproar from the room that all gone!” our client only wanted her guests to take the goodies when they were leaving – instead of during the Four Seasons Hotel cocktail reception before the wedding luncheon. this is because she wanted all the guests (even latecomers!) to take pictures & “view the candy buffet in its full glory”. what a thoughtful bride, right?
the 360° ferrero rocher tower we created, as our client requested for “a bit of a Christmas spin, which was why i decided to get married in december!”
at our client’s request: “for the yan yan, possible to have a mix of all 3? coz i quite like the pink & blue colours”
