Create Your Own Wedding Candy Buffet

Wedding Wednesday

There are a variety of buffets you see at weddings; cake, cookie, candy and food buffets.

Choosing a candy buffet for our daughter's wedding added elegance, color and fun for the children.

We started out by collecting a variety of containers of different shapes, sizes and heights.

The containers were a collection we obtained

from garage sales and clearance items.

We incorporated candy that coordinated with the

wedding's color and brown.

A touch of elegance was added by placing some

tulle around the containers with strings of pearls.

The framed note on the table read....

Step up to the candy buffet,

It's a sweet addition to the day,

This is a treat for you,

Using the scoop and choose what you would like

but please be polite and leave some for others.

As you enjoy this bag of treats remember

Love is Sweet!

A green vase held the treat bags.

Long stem candle holders with candles

added romantic lighting.

To keep this cost efficient, candies were purchased

with seasonal sales and frozen until the wedding date.

The candy scoops were purchased 3 for $1 @ the dollar store.

Have a great day and happy wedding planning !

  1. Wow...I never knew that candy could look so elegant...I'm gonna share this idea with a friend of mine...her son is getting married next week and they may want to do something like this...good job my friend!

  2. Beautifully done! I can't wait for a reason to celebrate so that I can do one of these myself!

    Many Blessings,

  3. What a lovely idea, I bet it looked even more beautiful in person!


  4. A very sweet idea. I think I have to check out your master bedroom makeover!

  5. WOW! Joy!

    I had no idea you could actually freeze candy! Is that ALL candy? For how long?

    Great buffet! I love the saying on the table too! You cannot have too much love nor candy :)

    Thanks for linking up!

  6. In answer to Birds question on how long the candy frozen. I bought some after Christmas and some after Valentines day. The rest was bought as the candy came on sale and was placed in the freezer. You'll however want to let it thaw a few days before the wedding . This will prevent moisture to accumulate under the wrappers or between the candy.

  7. Oooooh, you had me at candy buffet! No reason for having it needed ;)

  8. I didn't realize you were planning a wedding for your daughter this summer--I was, too! Her colors were also green and brown :).

  9. Hi there! great stuff, Thanks for sharing a very interesting and informative content, it helps me a lot, keep it up!
    Guests can enjoy the candy throughout the celebration or make their own to-go bag as a special wedding favor. Weddings are truly special events and candy weddings are a great way to make it special and sweet.
