Hello everyone! We’re almost out of the woods when it comes to the chilly weather, and springtime paves the way for parties and get-togethers. And what is more fun than a candy buffet at a swanky bash?
A candy buffet is a dessert stand or table that displays lots of delicious goodies for the taking. And don’t worry – there are tons of different ideas you can incorporate for your candy buffet depending on the theme and type of gathering you are hosting. Wedding or engagement party? Birthday bash? Holiday soiree? There’s a candy buffet for you!
This idea is good for any type of party you’re throwing. You can’t go wrong with serving your favorite candies, and having a variety of flavors is sure to cover all sorts of tastes your guests may have. For example, say your favorite fruity candy is Skittles, and as far as chocolate goes, you absolutely adore Hershey’s Kisses. Serving the two (plus any other candy you enjoy, and believe your guests will too) will ensure that fruity lovers and chocolate lovers will both be happy. And don’t think that to make a fantastic candy buffet display, you need to serve ONLY candy. Having some cupcakes or chocolate-covered pretzels or nuts is sure to thrill everyone as well.
If you are getting married, or hosting an engagement party for a lucky couple about to tie the knot, serving sweets on a candy buffet display is sure to thrill everyone who attends. If you’re looking for a modern spin on the traditional wedding cake, a selection of cupcakes in your favorite flavors (or wedding colors!) is an excellent idea. Not only will everyone in attendance be able to have a portion that fits them, but you’ll have a display that will sure to be the talk of the town (in a good way, of course!). Other choices you can make to serve on a candy buffet display include cake pops, chocolates, and even personalized candy with the wedding date, or photos of the bride and groom.
The next time you decide to throw a party, why not make use of the candy buffet? You’ll be sure to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, and earn your place as a fantastic crafty hostess.
Happy crafting everyone!
