    How much candy did you end up buying per guest?

    Was it just the right amount or too much?

    How did the huge lollipops go over?

    Where did you get the huge martini glasses and how much were they?

      lets see...
      We got about 50lbs of candy and had about 80 guests. We had about 10lbs left over after all was said and done. So it was too much but I prefer that over having the containers look half empty.

      The lollipops were a hit-my sister said people were asking if it was ok to take them. I didn't do the best job of weighting the vase so they tipped over at some point.

      I actually ended up renting the Martini glass for like $5. Had to buy the damn thing cause it got lost SOMEWHERE!! God only knows were that thing is.

I think we will do it for our AHR...It will look really cool, especially since we are going to have a Photo Both there so they can put those pics in the guest book and sign it. It makes my whole Casual theme. I love it!! thanks for all the Ideas giirls!!

                Yummy...I want to have one of these! I'm still debating whether or not to have a meal at our AHR or if I just want desserts galore lol.

                  We are having one of these @ our at home reception. I am actually going to Michaels tonight when I get home from work b/c they have 50% of coupons right now and they have some GREAT containers.

                  ie: Like the martini glass

                  P.S. If you have a Michaels nearby I signed up for their e-mails (I also signed up my FI) and every week I get either a 40 or 50% off coupon...it's great!!!

                    I was at a wedding fair last weekend and they had a candy buffet stand.I loved it they had huge martini glasses with all the sweets the same colour.I love the idea of doing this keeping the sweets matching the wedding colours
