A Sweet New Trend in Weddings and Parties

Over the last couple of years, candy buffets have become one of the fastest-growing and hottest trends in weddings and parties. It's easy to see why so many wedding couples and party planners are making use of this popular new trend.

Easy to Do!

Candy buffets aren't just easy to set up, they're also fun to set up! They look great anywhere such as an oblong table up against a wall or on a round table in the center of the room.

There's no cooking involved like there is with a dinner buffet. In fact, you can purchase everything already prepared, unless you wish to incorporate homemade candies. It's all basically "open and display"!

Easy to Design!

Match your colors:

The best part of the candy buffet is the color! Candy comes in so many colors and types that it's super easy to match the design and color selection to that of your wedding or party! You can choose an all-one-color design or mix it up with some dimension and texture by using multiple colors. Hard candies come in the most variety of colors and shapes. You can be the Van Gogh of confections!

Browns and chocolates are becoming more and more of a popular wedding color overall. Bridesmaids' dresses and wedding decor is being offered more commonly in browns and chocolate tones. Why not incorporate real chocolate into your candy buffet if you're planning to be part of this popular new trend in wedding color choices? Just be sure if your wedding is outside in the warm weather that you keep your chocolates in a cool place before serving them.

To really make your candy table stand out, select matching table cloths, signs, bunting, or decor kits. You can even purchase matching personalized printed table covers to really put the "wow!" in your candy buffet design. Bunting is now available in DIY (Do It Yourself) kits where you can print them off at home on your own computer. This allows you the opportunity to include photos or your own designs.

Decorative serving dishes and glassware beautifully display your candy choices in a way that's easy to see and easy to access. Keep them for yourself for future use or give them away as favors.

Match your theme:

It's so simple to not only match your wedding or event colors with your candy buffet, but also to match your theme. If your theme is seasonal, consider seasonal candies such as pastel Easter candies in the spring, candy corn in the fall, or peppermints in the winter.

Personalized printed candy and edible favors make not only a great addition to your candy buffet, but are great take home favors for your guests. Include packs of cider or hot cocoa for the fall and winter wedding or event candy buffet. Or enjoy packs of lemonade or frozen drink mixes for the spring and summer candy buffet.

For the non-perishable take home favor, consider cupcake, ice cream cone, sundae and lollipop towel favors. These adorable favors are designed to look like these sweet treats but are actually useful towels and washcloths! They look absolutely darling on a candy buffet but offer your guests something they can take home and use. They also make a sweet keepsake.

Don't forget candy favor boxes and candy favor bags for your guests to fill up on your decorative confections! These "must-haves" complete any candy buffet and come in a variety of designs and colors. You can even have them personalized with your names and date of your event.

There are so many delicious reasons to offer a candy buffet at your wedding or event. It's easy to see why they've become so popular. Enjoy sweet success when you offer this delightful addition to your big day!
