Dive Into This Delicious Wedding Detail: Candy Bar Buffets At Your Reception
I simply don’t know if I should to hug or hit my friend, Natalie, for sending me this too-tasty-for-words idea! With it’s uber delectable appeal, I find myself being drawn in; while my lurking, bathroom scale vigorously tries to draw me out. And even though I can hear it screaming, “run for the hills, Mary!”, my taste buds and non-existent will power won’t allow it… Alas, the candy bar buffet wins… again!
There is simply no denying the power of its appeal. Functioning as an alternative of OR in conjunction with the traditional wedding cake, these candy bar buffets have everyone from brides and grooms to guests and vendors going gaga! Originally designed with children in mind, candy tables have become equally – if not more – popular with adults.
Like their partners in crime – the infamous wedding cupcakes – what candy buffets lack in tradition, they gain in delightful designs. These extraordinary alternatives can be as elaborate or simple as you would like. You can stack them on shelves, three rows deep or line them up single file. You can theme them around your colors or make them into a standout, conversation piece. Because of the many potential opportunities candy bars offer, it’s no wonder their demand has all but doubled in today’s wedding market. Not to mention the fun you can have through all the seasons!
Weddings on or around holidays such as Halloween, Christmas or Valentine’s Day, are easily decorated with coordinating candies that are both seasonal and sensational. At Christmas, picture peppermint sticks, candy canes and gingerbread men overflowing out of sprinkled wreaths and twinkling vases. Imagine Halloween (or Autumn themed) candy bars brilliantly bedecked with caramel apples, sugared pumpkins and candy corn towers. Then, visualize Valentine’s Day treat tables adorned with a doting combination of messaging sweethearts, chocolate boxes and pink and red colored, candy parts! (Goodness me! Is anyone else’s mouth watering?)
Bottom line, candy bars can add a fun and trendy element to your big day celebration, no matter how big or small your budget may be.
