Sweet Tasty Treats: "The Candy Buffet"

Candy bar or candy buffet; which ever name you choose to use, is one of my favorite wedding and event trends. In addition to being a fun party decoration, they are also a great favor.  When deciding on how to display your sweet treats, here are a few suggestions to help you along the way.

What look are you going for? What do you want your guests to feel when they see your display? PRESENTATION is a key element when considering a candy buffet.  Think about a color scheme that matches your wedding palette.  Be sure to use nice linen and some draping for depth.  I personally like using various heights to create a somewhat dramatic presence along with tags, platters and anything else that ties into the overall theme without being overbearing.

Less is certainly more but variety is another key element for your candy buffet.  It may be your wedding and you absolutely dread some sweet treats.  However, your guests will appreciate having choices!  Continue to keep in mind your color scheme but don’t be afraid of using different shades that tie in. If your event is outside, stay away from candies that easily melt.  For my fruit lovers, if you’re planning on having a chocolate fountain and using fresh fruit on your table be sure they are in season.  Popcorn balls, nuts and even donut holes can be a tasty addition to your sweet table.  If you've never had a macaroon..... you simply must!

Dont forget to have utensils and something for your guests to pack up their sweet treats.  Enjoy the party, after all it's yours!!!
