Here is an idea I had initially disregarded as a pointless fad. Then I kept coming across brides that had said they’d had one and what a success it had been. I also saw pictures of how beautiful it could look. The Queen of the Candy Bar seems to be Amy Atlas. Wow, what amazing and scrummy tables she creates!
Isn’t this glorious?
I’ve seen other examples of candy buffets that look really messy. I think the key is to stick to one colour such as all white or just use a couple of colours say blue and white. I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet but I’m going to start collecting unusually shaped jars. I plan to tie velvet ribbon across the top of these with old fashioned labels with the sweet names on them. For good jar inspiration and a place to buy retro sweets go to Hope and Greenwood which I’ve blogged about here.
I’ve started making a list of white sweets I could: marshmallows, sugared almonds, bon-bons, rock candy, macaroons, coconut covered sweets, sweets covered in white chocolates…any other ideas? If so post them here as I am running out of ideas!
I might put a chalkboard on the table to with ‘Sweet Love’ or ‘Life is Sweet’ or something like that written on it. Here’s my later Blog Post on all the different messages you can write.
I also have to source scoops maybe glass or metal. And small bags for guests to put the sweets in.
Here’s one last great candy table from Amy Atlas:
If candies aren’t your thing how about a jelly buffet for an unusual and fun sweet table?
