A candy buffet acts as decor -- a beaurtiful centerpiece or focal point at your event -- as well as favors and food for an event. How you set it up will determine the feel, ambiance of the event.
Colorful candies, like those in the image at the left, makes for a fun, festive feel.
Monochromatic candies in clear containers can take on a more rich, elegant feel.
Also, some candies are "themed". This type of candy can will work great for an event like a casio theme party or fundraiser. Try Poker Chips Milk Chocolate candies or Pink Foil Chocolate Hearts for a wedding, shower or rehearsal dinner.
You can use individually wrapped candies and get them at your local Wal-Mart or Target or Target also carries bulk candy in a rainbow of colors. You can order them online too, just be careful of the shipping charges as candy can be heavy!
Color, the arrangement and table decor all combine to add to the overall scene you are setting for your guests. Put a little thought into what effect, feeling and atmosphere you want to achieve.
