Everything You Ever Need To Know About Your Candy Buffet
Candy buffets can be used for countless events, this includes birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and other fun special occasions. But what do you need to think about when you create your candy buffet for a special occasion? Read our information below to find out how to best create a candy buffet.
What Are The Most Important Things To Consider When Choosing Candy?
When it comes to the selection of candy for your buffet, there are some important factors to consider. Check out the overview below to find out what you need to think about when selecting candy.
Candy colours - One of the most important things to look at is the colour of your candy. For example, if you are selecting candy for a wedding, you must make sure that the candy matches the colour scheme of the wedding. For christenings or baby showers, you can choose baby-related colours such as pink, blue, and white. It is that simple.
Candy shapes and sizes - The candies you use for your buffet must also be of a certain shape and size. After all, you want to make sure that the candy fits in the jars and trays you have selected for the buffet.
When you choose candy for a buffet, always make sure you have a mix of small and larger candies. Use the larger candies for some of your bigger jars and use some of the larger candies for smaller trays. This way, you can save a significant amount of money.
Budget - Your budget will play a role in the selection of your candy too. If your budget is limited, then you will not be able to purchase large amounts of expensive candies. Therefore, ordering in bulk and taking advantage of bulk candy deals can be the best option in this instance.
Candy popularity - Certain candies are more popular than others, and this is still something to think about. After all, you do not want your candy buffet to be left untouched. To prevent this problem, make sure you have a good selection of popular candies to fall back on.
Seasonal colours - When you are stuck on the colours you want to use, you can always choose something seasonal. For example, you can use red, white, silver, and gold for Christmas. For Valentine's Day, you can use pink, white or red. For Halloween, choose something orange and black.
How Many Containers Do I Require For My Candy Buffet?
The best way to determine the number of containers you will need for your buffet, it is a good idea to count for every 50 guests. If you have a gathering for less than fifty guests, you will have enough with five candy jars. If you are organising a candy buffet for 100 guests, you will need at least 10 candy jars.
There are different types of containers you can use for a candy buffet too. Transparent mason jars are the most popular, but you can also use bowls, vases, fish bowls, and even big glasses. You may already have such items in your home, but you can also obtain them at Spotlight.
Of course, you are not obligated to use containers, you can also create favour bags for your guests. Simply choose some transparent packaging or purchase some favour bags from Spotlight. Once you have chosen your favour bags, you can fill them up with your favourite candy selection and place them on the buffet table.
Even if you fill the buffet table with favour bags, we still recommend having some loose candy laying around for your guests to grab. After all, favour bags are taken home and rarely opened at the event itself.
In addition to containers, do not forget to obtain some scoops and tongs for your candy buffet either. After all, grabbing candy with your hands is far from hygienic, let alone all your guests doing the same. So, always make sure you have a couple of scoops and tongs laying around, which your guests can use to grab their candy spread.
