Candy Buffet Tables

A very popular treat for weddings and parties is a candy buffet table. A candy buffet is a selection of sweet treats that can be themed to your event.

Ideally you will want to have a reasonable selection of sweets and candies presented in decorative glasses and jars, you might want to make your choices based on your colour scheme, so for a black and white buffet table you could include something like mint imperials, white m&ms, black jelly babies, black and white swirled lollipops, black and white sugared almonds, marshmallows, white candy mice, dark chocolate truffels or mints and licorice. You might also like to add some oreos, chocolate cookies drizzled with white icing or make some cake pops decorated with a black and white candy covering. You really want to make sure there is something there that most people will like and look to cater for all age groups.

When you decorate the table you will probably want to add some height at the back of the table by placing some boxes there and then cover them with a cloth or some material. You can either use a standard table cloth, organza or a satin type material. It will look best if you cover the front of the table down to the ground, either with a paper skirt or a table cloth then cover the boxes and the top of the table with your chosen material. If you have covered the top and front of the table in the same colour materials you may want to add some bows to the front of the table to add some contrast.

Now you want to add your glassware you might not want to put your tallest glasses on top of the boxes at the back as you are looking for a gradual height reduction from back to front to allow your guests to see everything on offer. If you put your tallest glasses on the boxes they might then tower over the rest of the table. You could then put some of the treats in small or flat dishes near the front of the table where no height is needed.

You can then add extra interest to the table by sprinkling some confetti, rose petals or diamantes or even something a bit more ornamental but less is definitely more here, don't clutter the table make sure there is plenty of space so everything can be seen. Some people like to add a little poem in a pretty frame this can be personal or just something simple like "Something sweet for you to eat".

If you would prefer not to do a candy buffet yourself then there are plenty of companies that will set these up for you, decorate the table, provide the sweets and glassware and they will then either man the table for you or just return at the end of your event to recover their items.
