For a quick recap, here are some tips and tricks for putting together a beautifully organized candy buffet:

  • Containers:

    • Budget between ⅓ of a pound and ½ of a pound of candy per person

    • Elevate containers to create a 3 dimensional display

    • Find containers at dollar stores, party supply stores, or borrow from a friend

  • Candy:

    • Consider themes or colors for your event (e.g., blue baby shower for a boy)

    • Add scoops or spoons to candy bowls

    • Label the treats, particularly if any contain nuts, for guests with allergies

  • Table:

    • For a small table, consider 5 or so items

    • For a large table, you may need closer to 10 items

    • Consider filling the table with decorations such as fresh flowers, candles, etc.

  • Centerpieces

    • Make sure centerpieces are low enough for guests to talk to one another

    • Placing different candies at different tables encourages mingling and variety
