We have created 7 simple steps to a DIY Candy Buffet to help you create a beautiful candy buffet to sweeten up your event:
Step #1) Pick your colour or theme
If your unsure of what colour or theme candy buffet you would like, search the internet and Pinterest for some inspiration.

Many buffet styles have a colour theme they are sticking to and the best thing is you can now buy candy via colour, making it so much easier to create a beautiful feature table just like the professionals!!!
Step #2) Find the Best Candy Shop and Stock up on Different Selections
You can’t have a candy buffet without candy!!! Therefore, you first need to find some candy shops in your area or online and try to find one that sells candy by colour theme. You can do this by checking online reviews to shortlist a few shops. If you find a local shop you can even sample the stores’ offerings beforehand to make sure that they’re worth your guests’ palate. Once you decide on a store, make a list of the sweets and sizes you want to feature, this will help you with step 3. You can choose from gummy bears, jelly beans and chocolates; remember to pick a variety of tastes, textures and sizes to make your buffet stand out.
You’ll need an assortment of decorative jars to showcase your candy during the event. All About Venues offers a wide collection of vases and glass containers which protect the candy while tantalising your guests. In addition, these are especially created jars for candy buffets to complement your event’s theme making it easier to store the candy, present and label.
Don’t forget the candy scoops and tongs!! As most sweets you’ll be using in your candy buffet won’t come protected in wrappers, you will need to provide scoops! Luckily, along with the containers you can also hire scoops and tongs from All About Venues – Melbourne. You can also pick up a colour themed scoop from your local dollar store made from wood, plastic or metal.
Most candy shops will also provide lolly bags you will need for your guests. We can provide lolly bags when hiring our jars and we can even create personalised bags for your guests. A great way to thank your guests is to have some personalised lolly bags with a message. You can arrange for these to be printed or arrange to have a personalised stamp made up and you can stamp each bag with your thank you message. Don’t forget the candy jar labels available online and through All About Venues – Melbourne.
Because your candy buffet serves a decorative purpose, you will need to get a few decorations to complement its colour theme and stylish containers. You may like to put some photographs in a frame and a sign asking your guests to help themselves. In addition to decor, you can have stylish table cloths, fairy lights and other decorations. These are also available for hire at All About Venues, so rest assured that all your needs for a DIY candy buffet are met under one roof.
Now that your buffet is almost ready, decide where you’ll be placing it. Remember to keep it in the open so that your guests can notice it right away and easily access it. We recommend placing your candy buffet table near your gift table or the entrance.
