Candy Buffets for the Reception

Wedding guests will be thrilled with a buffet of colorful treats after the reception gets started. It's a great addition or alternative to a dessert table.

Guests will enjoy filling up a goodie bag to snack on during and after the reception. Candy buffets can double as a wedding favor - add a sign or tag to favor boxes/bags thanking guests.

Use the candy buffet to incorporate your wedding colors/ theme into your reception. Include your favorite candy and show your personal style.

How to create your Sweet Treat Table:
1. Use decorative linen and flowers for the table. Fresh flowers and bright linens are a sure way to invite guests to the fun treat of a candy buffet. Add ribbons, candy scoops, decorative tags:
Wooden Black Boards Wooden Black Board Stick DIY Paper Pennant Bunting Kit
2. Find unique shapes, sizes, colored vases and dishes. You can find fun creative jars and vases just about anywhere - from stores such as the Christmas Tree Shoppe which offer an array of inexpensive vases, jars and dishes to department stores such as Macy's that offers fine crystal dishes and vases (and can be used in your home after the event). On-line stores like TheWeddingOutlet.com also offer a large selection of vases, including these top candy buffet dishes and vases-turned-dishes:

3. Offer Bags & Boxes for Guests to fill with treats. Coordinate your bags and boxes to match your wedding colors or wedding theme. Add a bit of personalization with a tag or sticker:
Asian Take Out Favor Box Black Tent Favor Boxes Paper Goodie Bags Pink Goodie Bags
4. Fill Vases and Dishes with an Assortment of Candy: Shop locally at Rhode Island candy stores such as Betty's Candies or Sweenor's Chocolates; or shop online for candy shops that offer a variety of yummy candies in bulk. Choose candies that are wrapped or are ready-to-eat in colors that compliment your RI wedding reception. We love these buffets created by local wedding planner Infinite Events:
