    My friends are throwing me a shower Saturday and for favors I put together this small candy buffet. Its the mock version, nicely situated on my small living room right in front of my ugly curtains. I think I am going to remove some of the "tropical stuff" and maybe spread the dishes out. I am also going to tag each container with the name of the candy. I also forgot to put the candy scoops out. Opps.
    Please give me some feed back to what I could do to make it more appealing (without buying more stuff)

      Ooooh it looks really good! All I would say is what you said, space the candy out a bit. I would like a clear view and easy access to all the dishes so I can stuff my bag full of goodies! Nice job!

            It looks great. if you can space it out a little so people can see what you have.

            Love it!!! I think the signs indicating what each candy is will be nice.

            Spreading it out a bit will be good, but be sure to leave some clear space where people can work on putting their bags together.
