Information on candy buffets.

 

If you're looking for something that's really extra-special for your event then you might be interested in a candy buffet. Candy buffets have become very popular in recent years as they can match the colors, style and theme with some of your favorite candy selections. Guests can enjoy candy before and during your event - it's an all around crowd pleaser for both children and adults.

 

We source our candy and chocolate from many specialty manufacturers so you can remain confident that you're receiving quality candy with unique colors and flavors. All of our baked goods (i.e. cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, etc) are baked in-house using tried and true family recipes. We pride ourselves on honest ingredients and small batches in order to maintain our quality standard.

 

We provide the following basic services with any of our candy buffet options: 

 

  • Assist in selecting candy (number of varieties are outlined below)

Why hire a professional?

 

Most folks that tackle candy buffets underestimate the amount of work involved in the process. If you decide to do it on your own, then here's what you'll have to think about:

 

  • Pick out what type of candy you need and also purchase the right amount.  Take into account that different age group like different types of candy as well and plan accordingly.

  • Buy glass containers, bags/boxes and scoops for your guests to put candy in.

  • Plan the layout of your candy buffet table so it follows form and function.

  • Purchase table decorations (tablecloths, runners, lights, flowers, signage, backdrops, etc) so everything matches the theme of the party.

  • Purchase packaging materials so that all of your decorations and candy arrive in perfect condition. 

  • Wash and wrap all of your candy containers.

  • Arrange for transportation of your candy and buffet accessories to your party (in one piece!)

  • Setup your buffet table prior to your guests arriving, making sure that you've coordinated with the event planner so the right size table is available, setup and appropriately placed within the venue.

  • Break down your display once the party is done, bring it back home, wash and store. 

 

This is certainly more work than most people have time for when they're planning all other aspects of their party. Leave it to us, the professionals, to take care of all of the details for you so you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
