Image by ferminunderhill
It’s OK for you or your new spouse to have a sweet tooth on your big day. This is the reason that having a candy bar or candy buffet in the day of your wedding is something which can make your big day quite memorable. There are a lot of options available regarding #candies and the #containers. Working on the right combination of these options can add even more personality to your wedding.
Functions of a candy buffet
Whether you want to create a snack station or #dessert supplementation, candy buffet is the option you can go for. You can even use it as a late-night treat.
Wedding is all about stunning people with decoration. A candy buffet is the perfect feature which can add character to overall decoration of the wedding.
Instead of gifts, you can give your guests the takeout cAndy boxes full of candies. A candy bar can serve as the perfect make-your-own wedding favor station.
Creating a candy bar
•First of all, you will need to pick the right theme of the candy bar which you are going to create. You don’t have to worry if all of the colors match because it is something quite unlikely after the candy bar is created. The matter of fact is that different colors and hues in the candy bar are what that make the candy bar interesting.
•Make sure that you have chosen 6 – 8 types of candies with different shapes and sizes. You can actually make arrangement with a mix of wrapped and unwrapped candies.
•To make the candy bar more prominent, make sure that you are using a variety of containers and scoops. You can give the table an extra character with the help of decorative labels and Mini chalkboards.
•Make sure that the candy buffet doesn’t look empty at any stage. You can deploy a staff to quickly refill the empty spots. For this purpose, you have to make sure that you have enough stock of the candies.
•You can provide your #guests an access to the #colorful and themed #boxes in which they will be able to put their candies.
Getting inexpensive candies
When you get something in bulk, you can ask for the discount. This is where you can ask for the quality items in cheaper rates. Still, you need to have a good stock; and you are going to need to pay less for more candies. Cupcakes and crispy rice are the ideal treats in this regard. You can also get the cotton candy which fills a bigger box with less money spent. You can also get cookies and chocolate chips to save money because these are the cost effective options.
