									How Sweet It Is: Candy Buffet Tables Are Unique & Fun

By: Donchell Johnson, Owner -,

An increasingly popular wedding reception trend is the candy buffet or confection bar. This
consists of a variety of candies or treats placed in varied sizes of glass containers and grouped on
a table.

These buffets can serve as your wedding favor. Your guests can select the candies of their
choice, and only those that want a treat will come to get leftovers all around your
reception tables to clean up at the end of the night. A special touch of your favorite candies and
small beautiful treat bags can wrap up your special evening.

Here are some tips and ideas to help you create a beautiful candy buffet at a low cost.

    1. Find affordable containers – Dollars Stores, Wal-Mart, etc. have clear glass containers
       that are affordable and look nice. Buy large and small containers for a nice variety.
       Don’t forget to buy scoopers for getting the candy out of the containers.
    2. Spice up the table – tablecloths, table runners, flowers, pictures. These things can be
       added to make your candy buffet table great. Coordinate these with the wedding colors.
    3. Add extras – a punch bowl or fountain, a chocolate fountain, cookies or other dessert
    4. Purchase Affordable Candy – don’t forget those after holiday sales. Purchase candies
       after Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter and put away for your wedding. They
       should hold if they are used within 6 months or so. Buy candy in bulk at places like
       Sam’s Club and Costco.
    5. Color makes a difference – coordinated colors look more elegant than random selections.

Use your imagination and your candy buffet will surely be a hit.

Good Luck and Happy Wedding Planning.
