Awesome Candy Buffet Ideas for Your Party

One of the cutest and sweetest party ideas is really catching on, Candy Buffets! This increasingly popular table is a hit at weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, and even just for random entertaining. Here are a few ideas from some of the pros for your next candy buffet…

Girly Pink and Green – I love the use of pink and green candies, along with plants and floral arrangements to liven up the table. Lollipops, candy buttons, sixlets and rock candy make up this candy buffet.


Colors of the Rainbow – Amy from Amy Atlas events uses color to brighten up this party! I love how she chose various colored candies to make this candy buffet stand out. It looks like light blue is the base color, but you can really choose any type of table cloth you’d like.


Pink and Blue Cotton Candy – I love this color scheme for a baby shower, you know, the kind where the parents don’t want to know the sex of the baby. Mostly blue gives a bright, yet masculine approach, where the hints of pink soften the look.


Black and White, with a hint of Yellow – This one has a bit of vintage flair with the tags and paisley backdrop. I think it’s awesome, the yellow sets it off perfectly! White chocolate pretzels, vanilla cupcakes, vanilla meringues and white almonds create this masterpiece.


Berry Blue Sweets for You – The variety of blue candy makes this buffet table look beautiful! The use of tall blue goblets, a cake as a centerpiece and tasty looking donuts with blue sprinkles is sure to be a hit.


Pastel Outdoor Candy Buffet – Loving this pastel colored decor for an backyard affair! Peach and Mint are the base colors used, with hues of yellow and orange inside each bowl.


Playful Orange and Blue – This fun set up screams kids birthday party! I love the bright orange jelly beans, orange slices and macarons. The table cloth and cupcake liners also make this candy buffet stand out!


White Wedding Bliss Candy Buffet – Pure, simple, elegant. This white candy buffet speaks volumes without saying too much. The addition of flowers gives off a slight color pop. Stunning.


Pretty in Purple Candy Buffet – Shauna Younge has an eye for creativity, and she shows it in her purple candy buffet table. Most of these treats look homemade, everything matches down to the floral embellishments on the squares. Purple swirl lollipops and paper wrapped candy bars add a bit more color to the table, I would love to see this table cloth in a darker purple!


How do I make my own candy buffet?

It’s so easy! Gather the necessary supplies, assorted candies in the colors of your choice, a few glass jars, a matching table cloth, scoops or tongs, colored ribbons and name labels, and get creative! You can purchase the candy from a local or online candy store and plenty of supplies can be found at party stores, dollar stores, or on Amazon. I did a small candy buffet for a friends baby shower last year and I found a lot of glass jars and colored ribbon at the dollar store. It was a lot of fun to create!

Which of these candy buffets is your favorite?
