What is a candy buffet?
A candy buffet is a themed display of candy that is designed to complement the color scheme and theme of your event. Adding beautiful backdrops and Sweet decor for weddings, parties and events.
Why should I include a candy buffet at my event?
Candy buffets are unique! All our candy tables are customized which creates the wow factor at your event. A candy buffet makes your event fun, and memorable. What a great way to provide your guests with an exciting, interactive table. It makes the perfect favor for any event!
Why shouldn’t I just do this myself?
Most people who have tackled a candy buffet on their own spend the same amount or more money than if they hired a professional. If you create your own candy buffet, you will need to purchase specialty glassware (at least 8 pieces), table accessories to make your display attractive, ribbons, candy scoops, candy bags, containers, bubble wrap or packaging for transport to your event location and the candy itself. You will invest hours canvassing the stores for your supplies, researching candy prices, designing and practicing the set-up of your display. Then you will have to bring your supplies back and forth to the venue. Setting up your display and cleaning it up takes time. Who wants to be worried of who is going to help you when you need to do other things? We specialize in candy & dessert stations for all events. Enjoy your event and let us handle the details.
