If you’ve been on Candy Pros’ website, then there’s a good chance that you have heard the phrase “candy buffet.” The phrase is pretty self-explanatory, a candy buffet is an assortment of candies for you and any number of guests. What isn’t clear is how to organize a candy buffet, which is why Sharri’s Berries published a guide on their website. The steps were to decide the buffet’s color, what candy to serve, and the setup.
The first thing Sharri’s Berries recommends doing is choosing the candy buffet’s color scheme because that determines what candies you should serve. Sharri’s Berries offers different suggestions for different events. For example, their website said that a black and white theme is ideal for “formal or adult soirees,” and would work best with all colors of chocolate. Pastel is suitable for springtime parties and should feature Easter candy. Rainbow is best for children’s parties and allows you to buy any candy.
When purchasing candy for your buffet, Sharri’s Berries highly recommends at least one “filler candy.” A filler candy is something like the gumballs pictured above in the lollipop jars. In addition to candy, you can provide baked goods just in case any of the guests don’t like candy.
To decorate the candy buffet, you need a table, a backdrop, dishes, and accessories like flowers or plush toys. The table needs to be strong and covered with a tablecloth that matches the food, and the backdrop can be anything from posters to streamers. For the dishes, clear is the best option because it is neutral and shows the treats’ colors. For the finishing touches, Sharri’s Berries claims that “less is more,” because too many decorations are distracting; But can anyone focus on the extras when there’s delicious candy is up for grabs?
