Tips for creating a beautiful candy buffet
1. Decide on your budget for a candy buffet. How many people will attend the event? How much can you spend per person?
2. The next step is to pick what types of candy you want to display in your candy buffet. Here, there are no rules. However, you will want to keep the same colors as the events colors. For instance, at a Spiderman party, red and blue types of candy would be perfect. You can have wrapped candies, unwrapped candies, or a variety of both. It is better to use different types of candy to accommodate for everyones unique tastes: sweet, sour, salty, soft and chewy. This will allow you to make sure that every guest will find something that they like.
3. Buy candy in bulk to save money. It takes a lot of candy to fill up a candy bar table. You will need to buy candy in bulk. You can go to retailers that sell candy in big bags and boxes (Costco, for example) or, alternatively, you can order online. Here are some online candy shops:
4. Purchase candy buffet jars. Plain glass candy buffet jars are the best. If you are on a tight budget, you can use plastic containers for the candy. Plastic candy jars work especially well if you are setting up a candy buffet for kids. You can buy candy buffet jars at several places: WalMart, Target, Dollar stores, thrift stores or online (EBay, for example).
5. Choose a color scheme for your candy buffet that fits with your events theme. Three or four colors work great for the candy bar table. If everything is one color, it looks boring. If you are planning to have several tables of candy, you could make each table a different color.
6. You need to create varying heights in your candy buffet. To do that, you can use boxes wrapped in gift wrapping paper or you can put boxes or pedestals under a table cloth.
7. To create a central high point of your candy bar, you can use a beautiful centerpiece. It can be a candy bouquet (see candy bouquet tutorials) or any other centerpiece. The centerpiece should go well with the overall theme.
8. Your candy buffet table should be balanced on both sides. The easy way to achieve symmetry is to use pairs of containers.
9. A good background makes your candy display beautiful. Think about what you will use as a background for your candy bar.
10. Add decorative elements to your candy buffet table. These can be ribbon, lace, balloons, feathers, labels; they should go well with the color scheme.
