Welcome to Astrid Jensen's Chic Candy Carts... great to see you here! 

Astrid Jensen is a small family-owned business hiring out luxury candy carts for weddings, celebrations and special events. We are based in Glasgow and travel all over the Scottish mainland to help make your special occasion a big success. 
  
We are often asked where the name 'Astrid Jensen' came from. Is she a real person? Alas no - there is nobody of that name working here! The name came from our love of all things Scandi and is a nod to the fabulous Georg Jensen whose craftsmanship and design are world-renowned. The name 'Astrid' is of Norse origin and means 'divinely beautiful'. Our aim is to bring you expertly crafted and divinely beautiful Candy Carts as befits our name.  

We are a mother and daughter team and involve the rest of the family as much as we can (or as much as they're willing!) I'm Andrea Sharpe and do all the admin/digital media/business/event stuff and my very talented daughter Carrie creates and makes our designs. In 2017 I was looking for a new venture so Carrie and I decided to combine our skills and make really special Candy Carts for hire.

​The business came about after the fabulous wedding that we planned for my daughter Holly and her fiancé Alan in 2015. The theme was 'pink, white and bling with a touch of fairytale' and we had great fun sourcing the venue, the decorations, the flowers, the cake, the invitations... the list was endless! As a wedding present, my eldest daughter Carrie made a beautiful pink and white Candy Cart for the reception. It was a big hit with everyone and the solution to a huge headache - what will we have as favours?! By providing cute little paper bags, the sweets doubled up as a ‘thank-you’ for our guests. The perfect solution!

We are both very creative, totally committed and work to a very high standard. It's so important to be able to trust your wedding or event supplier and we promise to deliver you a great service. 
  









Celebrate with a chic candy cart!

Weddings, engagements, anniversaries, birthday parties, baby showers, corporate events... whatever your celebration give it the wow factor! We've got children's parties covered too with our very cute little carts in a variety of fun themes.​

Each hand-painted traditional cart has unique side and canopy panels that take it from ubiquitous to luxury. The decorative panels are expertly designed and made in-house by our Creative Designer, Carrie. Personalised elements will be included to create a stunning centrepiece for your celebration. For corporate events we can include your branding and logo. These design features together with tasteful accessories, stylish glassware and elegantly presented sweet treats, are what give our Candy Carts their 'chic' and set them apart from the rest.
