Candy buffets are usually associated with weddings. Everyone talks about the wedding candy buffet and how very fun and exciting and beautiful they can be - Sweet I Do's included.
We have recently had the opportunity to put together a candy buffet for a 70th birthday/wedding reception and an Easter buffet. And we will be setting one up for a high school graduation, a retro housewife bridal shower and a 4 year olds birthday party.
A candy buffet can be a great alternative to purchasing and putting together treat bags for just about any party or occasion. They bring excitement, anticipation and fun to all types of parties.
Putting one together yourself? Keep in mind the guests age. Younger kids should have someone attending the table to keep the kids from overdoing the sugar and sweets, as well as to protect the glass. Consider alternatives to candy such as temporary tattoos, small plastic animals, race cars, erasers, crayons, etc. Dietary considerations are not a problem any longer. There are a large number of sugar free alternatives as well as flavored popcorns, pretzels and peanuts. Hate candy and love deserts? Consider mini versions of your favorites - cheesecakes, brownies, pies, cakes, etc.
Hiring a professional like Sweet I Do's? Great! We have the resources to find every candy that you can imagine, and some that you can't. Remember your favorite childhood candy? Bet we can find it. We have the experience to steer you in the right direction and provide a little something for everyone. We'll even set up your buffet to look like an old time sweet shop - complete with signage.
The candy buffet has broken out of the wedding favor market and is quickly becoming a favorite for every occasion.
