Tired of a Candy Bar/Station ~Try Something New!

A candy buffet works both as reception décor and wedding favors. It creates a great focal point in your reception and also eliminates the worrying of wedding favors. There are many inventive ideas with candy buffets such as coordinating the candy to match your wedding colors, having labels and unique favor bags for your guests to enjoy and to create a beautiful visual with different size containers.

You can become more creative with a cookie bar or popcorn bar as well. Brides are also considering a cake bar with different types of cakes and pies displayed on pretty platters all sliced and served individually. Another unique idea that your guests would enjoy is a hot cocoa bar. Using fancy mugs, an assortment of flavored cocoa such as peppermint, white and dark chocolate and of course all the add-ins like marsh mellows, peppermint sticks, flavored syrups and whipped cream. Truffles, caramel and candied ginger are only a few of the many options for this new trend. Your options can be limitless.

For some weddings on a budget different bars are a perfect way to cut costs on food and beverage. Having a candy bar along with a coffee station providing different flavored coffees along with espresso and a variety of syrups to choose from and liquors, is another creative option.

You can personalize your candy wrappers at a great website: www.candywrapperstore.com and even think of trendy labels like Sweets from the Sweethearts or display the candy bar as Candy Land.
