And lolly buffets go far beyond display; it makes your guests travel back in time, inspire their sweet tooth and add more sweetness to your party.

So, where do you start? And what exactly do you need to make your candy buffet plan a success?
Step 1: Stock up on bulk lollies

Step 2: Design your backdrop
From a handmade piece to a flower, balloon, or nameplate arrangement, a backdrop will instantly elevate your table.
Consider lighting elements, too, such as battery operated fairy lights to capture the eye of passers-by. Arrange these on the table or string them up as part of your backdrop. Guests won’t be able to resist such a gorgeously set up table!
Step 3: Accessorise your candy buffet
We know that you can’t get enough of your fancy candy jars and lollies but don’t forget to add other accessories like bags and scoops. You want to make it as easy as possible for guests to get their favourite lollies!
You might also like to add a brightly coloured table cloth for your jars to sit on.
Step 4: Consider labelling your jars
Suppose you want to personalise your lollies, even just by name.
In that case, use handwritten labels, mini chalkboard stands, or even calligraphy painted labels to let your guests know what lollies are waiting for them!
Make sure you choose pink and gold labels that will surely match your event theme.
Step 5: Elevate your table with even more sweet treats!
Don’t limit your buffet to lollies only.
To make your lolly buffet look even more tempting, add a variety of cakes, cookies, cupcakes, macaroons, fairy floss, popcorn boxes, and even customised drinks!
This gives your guests even more opportunities to enjoy your sweet treats!
