Getting married can be stressful, but don't let the hustle and bustle of getting hitched impact your big day. With all of the decisions that go into planning a wedding and the reception, picking wedding favors can be fun and easy by having a colorful candy buffet. A simple candy display will transform your reception with a pop of color and be an instant hit with family and friends of all ages. Plus, it is an attractive alternative to the traditional wedding favors.
The best way to design a colorful candy buffet:
Step 1: Pick your colors
After selecting the color theme for your wedding, tying those colors into your candy buffet is effortless.
Weaver Nut Sweets & Snacks can be your go-to candy supplier since we have a wide variety of candies in all shades of colors that will match any color scheme and we are dedicated to providing the best customer service. To narrow down the options and speed up the process of selecting your favorite candy, we also have a search by color feature that can aid in your candy search. By having the candies sorted by their respective color and type, envisioning your candy buffet can be brought to life.
Step 2: Pick your display containers
When putting together a color coordinated candy table, it is best to always use clear containers, so the color of the candy shows through. Containers can be found at craft stores or even at local dollar stores. Different shaped glasses and vases can add an attractive and interesting flair to your buffet table. Just be sure that you use containers have a large enough opening for a scoop or tongs to fit in to reach the candy.
Step 3: Pick your candy
Generally, having two or three colors is normal and can look cohesive without being overwhelming to guests. By sticking to two main colors and one neutral color, such as grey or white, the overall look of the display will mesh together nicely.
Not sure how much candy to buy? The general rule of thumb is to order 8 ounces of candy per guest. However, if you wish to cut back, provide the guests with smaller favor bags or boxes. Clear cellophane bags or personalized Chinese boxes can be distributed to guests to package their candy favors and can be found at any party store or online.
Below are some options that can be easily incorporated into your colorful candy buffet.
- Gummy bears
- Jelly Beans
- Rock candy
- Salt water taffy
For non-candy goers, having a selection of yogurt covered pretzels and raisins or peanut brittle may be a solution for them to still enjoy the spread while sticking to a color theme.
