Candy Buffet Table
Not so new of a trend anymore, but I still love the idea of a Candy Buffet. I have been thinking of the types of candy to have, and the FH and I have decided that we want the candy to be simple, traditional, and delicious!
That said, our colors are Pink and Brown, and the obvious choice for the Brown candy is Chocolate. We are going to have Choc. Covered Pretzels, Chocolate Caramel Balls, and then Chocolate Peanuts/Almonds. I also like stick candy. The brown color is root beer and I am all over that!
As for the pink, I think that I am going to have pink salt water taffy, pink M & M's, and Pink Jelly Beans. Lastly, my Dad made a lollipop stand and I am going to put either Pink Rock Candy suckers or the Big swirly lollipop ones in it.
I can not wait to see it! I have about $250 budgeted for candy, I hope that is enough!
The table will be rectangular with brown material draping it. I didn't want a ton of candy that will be thrown out so I decided that I am going to have a large Crystal Tree as the Centerpiece on that table. I hope that it will make it look even more delicious!
I was planning on putting ribbon around each of the jars and to have our monogram on it. I do have mini photo frames bought to put the name of each candy in it to help guests, but I am thinking I may skip the monogram and put the name of the candy and eliminate the photo frames altogether. I wanted to make a sign and lean it on a stand or against the tree that is beautiful lettered to read "Sweets". This is just what I have in my head, I will let my decorator work out the final placings!
