Sweet Options...

One of the latest trends is the increasingly popular candy buffet. We see many candy buffets throughout the season and each one is unique! The options are plentiful and... sweet!

When considering a candy buffet buy enough candy!! It is suggested that candy buffets work best when they are planned through the eye and not the numbers. It is also suggested to choose 5 to 10 types of candy that you want to display and purchase 15-20 pounds of each of those candies. This may seem like an over abundance of candy, but a large table overflowing with candy has a presence at your wedding and does not look like something you threw together at the last minute.

Some are very color coordinated, while others are very taste oriented (sweet vs. sour vs. chocolate, etc.). For example if you are having a beach theme wedding, you can serve candies from the boardwalk: saltwater taffy, caramel apples, fudge, peanut brittle. We love to see the creativity that is achieved when our brides & grooms incorporate this sweet addition!

Once you've decided on what types of candy you want... you need to decide how to display it. Interesting containers will change your candy buffet from ordinary to extraordinary. Use containers in different shapes and different heights. Clear containers are the best to show off your candy displays. Also use containers that are wide enough for a candy scoop to fit inside.


Lastly, you need to think about how your guests will take the candy away from the buffet. Some couples have suggested using small cellophane bags, or classic white bags, or even take out containers matching the color theme of the wedding. Whatever type of container you use, make it fun and perhaps personalize it!
