Based on customer inquiries, we knew we needed to find more supplies for Wedding Candy Buffets! Candy and Treat Buffets are here to stay as a party and wedding trend.

Orange and Yellow and Black is everywhere around Halloween and Red and Green and White will be on sale after Christmas, Pink and Red are common around Valentine’s Day.
Asian takeout Boxes are an affordable and modern packaging option for a candy buffet. The are 8 ounces so you want to ensure that your candy is not too small/expensive for this large a package. Wrapped and Gummy Candies take up more space and will fill these boxes without costing too much. Fine Chocolate or Gourmet Jelly Beans will likely add up too quickly to give out a box this big.
Mini Wooden Scoops are a good option for serving up candy. It keeps people’s fingers out and also helps you limit portion sizes. Do a mock candy favour bag to see how much candy you will need. Make sure you buy more than you think you need so that guests are not scraping the bottoms of the barrels, at least not until close to the end of the night. The cost of candy can be surprisingly high but you don’t want to look cheap by running out of candy before everyone has had a turn.
