How Sweet it is

Gone are the days of pastel pillow mints and assorted nuts, it’s time to let them eat…candy! Just take a quick look on the Internet, and it’s no surprise that candy buffets are hugely popular. Not only do the sugary sweets satisfy your guests’ sweet tooth but the wide assortment of confections are also pleasing to the eye and create the perfect party favor.
While it’s important to make sure there will be enough candy for all the guests, don’t focus too much on the numbers. Treat the candy buffet as a decorative focal point and make sure it’s substantial. Ordering more candy is always better than having a candy buffet that looks like it was raided by a bunch of sugar-deprived grade school kids.
One way to make the candy pop is to choose cool containers in different shapes and sizes and place them at different heights by using books or other square objects covered in fabric. Keep in mind that clear containers are usually the best choice for showing off your carefully-selected candy assortment. Have fun with the labels for your tasty favors. The Candy Bar is the perfect place to get creative, and to play on the theme of your wedding.
Whether the candy is chosen more for the color or the theme, there is no hard-and-fast rule. Just stay away from the chewy caramels and fudge if your wedding is outdoors. You might just end up with a messy chocolate blob.
As for the packaging, a simple clear candy bag with some decorative ribbon could do the trick. For something a little more unique, buy some small takeout containers to match your color scheme and create labels to let your guests know what a “treat” it was to have them at your wedding.
