    We are going to have a candy buffet at our AHR. I was so excited, our wedding colors are black and white damask and kiwi green, I just found these decorated Chinese containers online (we are using the smallest size) I can't wait to get these for our buffet!

      We're doing a candy buffet as well. Our AHR is going to be a dessert and cocktail reception and we would provide all of the candy so we can save some $$ since we don't have to go through the caterer. :)

        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/...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.t...otShop)#toppage

         

        Would love to hear what other ladies are doing.

          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'll be having a candy buffet! Just need to figure out if I want to bring the containers to Jamaic... I already have so much other stuff to bring!

                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.
