Quoting ♥Ashley♥:" Have you ever had one at your event/party? What was your experience? What kind of candy was on it and what kind of containers did you use for the candy?"
here are a few candy buffets ive done:
then for my wedding i did a trail mix bar.. it matched my wedding theme a little better lol. i dont have pictures of that but i used all metal buckets and burlap
you honestly can use any container you want! ive started collecting snad buckets and colored vases and clear vases for my daughters birthday coming up for her mermaid themed party...
most of the jars from the first one i got at ikea for a few dollars a piece, then i ordered tongs and spoons off ebay. dollar store and sams has the tongs also (i found out after lol) you can find jars and vases at the dollar store also.. just use ribbon and vinyl to deocrate
the possibilities are endless!!!
