Candy Buffet

Recommended Posts

I just wanted to bump this thread up to see if there are any ladies out there doing a candy bar. I am doing one at my reception and so far this thread was invaluable in pulling it all together.

 

I got my candy from: mymms.com, candywarehouse.com and jellybelly.com

I am looking for cellophane bags now but I'm sure I will find those on ebay or something.

I found some cute scoops on etsy http://www.etsy.com/listing/56222421/custom-listing-reserved-for-saragrasso but since my candy will all be purple and pink with some ivory and green and I didn't want over kill of my colors I opted for these scoops instead http://weddingshop.theknot.com/WEDDINGWAREHOUSE/ProductPage.aspx?pId=P1878(KnotShop)#toppage

 

Would love to hear what other ladies are doing.  cheesy.gif

I am also having a candy buffet at my reception, since I am getting married in Mexico I am planning buying Mexican candy and it will save me transportation.

I'm doing a candy buffet as well and will be buying the candies from Costco and Walmart (I heard those are the cheapest places to get candies in bulk).

 

As for the containers, I will be putting together chinese take out boxes, customized labels, and ribbons. I will also put guests' names on each container and use them as place cards.

 

My only worry is if the candies will melt in the hot weather? I know I can't have chocolates. But, what about sour strings and fuzzy peaches? Will they be okay? Anyone else is wondering the same question?

Thanks for the info JanineA. I too was going to order the fancy ones from etsy but the ones of the Knot seem to make more sense because of their size and I can buy more of them for the price that I was going to spend on the fancy ones.

I love your idea of using chinese take out boxes as place cards! I went to the craft store today and they had to sizes, they had small ones that were about 1 and half inches by 2" give or take and then medium size ones that were about 3" or so. Just curious on what size you went with?

I have been told that there will be a candy buffet at my bridal shower, which I am excited about since I think they are soooo cute!!  I am thinking I may have a candy buffet at my AHR too.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
