Got a sweet tooth? Candy buffets are great party favors!

Candy buffets are a hit at any wedding or party! They are so much fun and sure to get your guests mingling. Try old-fashioned candy, match the candy to your party’s color scheme, or pick your all-time favorite candies!

Many people underestimate the amount of candy needed to fill up the containers. One way to make a big impact without spending too much on candy is to sit the containers on boxes draped with fabric. This gives the illusion that the containers are bigger, while saving you money on candy!

The bags that you put out determine how much candy each guest will get. Use small bags if you don’t have tons of candy. If there are going to be a lot of children at the reception, be cautious when using glass apothecary jars with lids.

You are going to spend more money on a color-coordinated candy buffet than if you use multiple colors. To save money, go with a color palate such as bright colors, neutrals or pastels.

Add ribbons and labels to match your wedding colors. This is the fun part and there are endless ways to dress up the jars!

A new twist on the candy buffet is to use popcorn, trail mix, baked potato or ice cream sundae toppings to fill the containers. To get more candy buffet ideas, visit
