Forget the cake -- candy buffets are the colorful, festive, creative way to add sweets to any event! But where, oh where, do you find all the candy? At All City Candy, of course! Whether it’s for a wedding, a corporate function, a baby shower, or a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, we have the goodies you need to assemble the sweetest candy buffet in town. Getting started is easy, just follow our tips and guidelines below and you'll be on your way to a sweet buffet in no time!
Keep in mind, most candy can be bought in bulk, which is probably your best bet if you'll need to accommodate a large crowd. When purchasing candy, be sure to order it well in advance so you have time to stage the buffet at home before the party and purchase or order more candy if necessary.
Similar to other elements of your party, you can personalize your own candy buffet by choosing items that fit within your color scheme and theme or occasion. Select two or three colors that complement the rest of your event and choose candy in those colors. Or, choose candy that represents the occasion or your theme.
Of course, the most important element of your candy buffet is the candy! When choosing candy to include, keep in mind types of candy that you like. Choose things that both look and taste good. Also remember to include different types of candy. Mix it up! Opt for candies that look different, as well. M&M's are a great option and come in a variety of colors, but also try rock candy or candy sticks.
Here are some popular candy types for candy buffets:
Set up your table in a beautiful display with take-home containers for your guests to select and scoop up their favorite options. The take-home containers make for a unique favor that is high in style and low in price.
All City Candy can also create custom labels, personalized candy bar wrappers, and hand-dipped chocolate favors in your event colors for your special day. Custom items make sweet party favors, treats for welcome bags, and they look extra-special on a dessert table or candy buffet. Click here to download All City Candy's Party Services Brochure.
