What is a Lolly Buffet?

We’re here to help you make your event full of colour, excitement, and fun with a lolly buffet!

There are so many names it can be hard to keep track! Candy buffet, lolly bar, sweet table, candy bar, dessert table, lolly station and lolly table just to name a few! They all have these things in common though: lollies, vases and jars, and a ton of colour!

And above all, they are HEAPS of fun and everyone loves them!

What Sort of Events do Lolly Buffets Work Well For?

Weddings, birthday parties, Christmas parties, anniversaries, christenings, bar mitzvahs, engagement parties, baby showers and corporate events! Basically anything where people like to have fun can have a candy station because everyone loves lollies!

Best of all, lolly buffets are super customisable, meaning that you can tailor the presentation and theme to match virtually any kind of event, whether it’s a more formal corporate occasion, or something fun and fabulous like a baby shower or hen’s party!


How Do You Create a Candy Buffet?

1. Choose Your Jar!

Choose the containers in which you will offer your lollies. Table decorations should match the theme or style you chose for the party.

You will find plenty of options to play with and even though glass bowls or plates work in a pinch, lolly jars are our favourite. Your candy bar will attract more attention if everything on the table is transparent and you can see the sweets in detail. A great idea is to scrounge op shops to find a variety of glass jars in different heights and sizes.

Hire or Buy? The Lolly Buffet Jars are a vital component of your lolly buffet and we can help you source your own or recommend some amazing Australian companies to hire them from!

2. Choose What Your Guests Will Put the Lollies In!

What do you want your guests to put the lollies in? The idea here is that guests can serve themselves and fill up a small container of lollies to snack on throughout the event, or to take home with them at the end of the night.

For this, you’ll need some bags for your sweets! You can use small plastic or paper bags in different colours and designs. Or you can go the unconventional route with unique containers such as noodle boxes or organza bags.

Another great idea is a branded item such as a mug – perfect for a corporate event!
We have seen some great examples and we can help you choose your containers or at least get the creative juices flowing.

3. Choose the Type and Quantity of Lollies

Fill up that lolly buffet table with delicious treats by visiting a candy store near you. Or better yet, choose to shop online here at My Lollies. We specialise in lollies and are proud to have the lowest prices on the internet!

We suggest selecting around 7-10 sweet variations (depending on the size of your buffet) that match your theme and that you think your guests will enjoy. Gummies in different flavours and shapes, chocolates, candy hearts, snakes… the broader your assortment, the better!

But how many do you need? We can help you solve your Lolly Buffet Quantity!
