Q: How much candy should I purchase? A: I wish there was a hard fast rule to this question. Some say 1/4 LB per guest, others say 1/2 LB per guest. But it`s all about the way your candy looks. Plan by how you want the display to look, not how many guests are coming. Having enough candy is crucial in making your candy buffet look good. Here is a tip a bride told us: "Take your candy buffet bags/containers that the guests will be taking home with them to your local grocery store and fill them the types of candy you will have for your event. Then weigh them. Multiply by how many guests, then you will get an idea of the pounds."
Tip: Add something salty or sour: Yummy! Salt or sour GOES with SWEET. Your candy buffet doesn't have to be all candy. Add potato chips or pretzels maybe some sour balls. Fresh fruit and cheese work great as well.
Q: How can I cut costs on candy? A: Shop for candy after a holiday! Some candy will last a long time. Depending on your colors or theme, after holiday sales will save on candy costs. Don`t forget Sam`s Clubs, Cost Co, Smart & Final.
Q: How far in advance can I buy my candies( before they get hard) and how should I store them? I am planning on buy everything from yogurt covered raisins to chocolate and gummy.
A: Candy Life & Storage
Tip: If you don`t want your candy buffet table to look empty, you can put the same amount of candy in smaller containers rather than 2 or 3 large containers - more smaller containers LOOKS like more! Containers on different levels using books under a table cloth to create risers - very pleasing to the eye.
Q: I am planning everything myself, will my caterer do the set up? A: It never hurts to ask. If you purchase the candy, your caterer could add a candy buffet into your event. Also, there are companies that only set up candy buffets. Search online to see if there is a company or caterer close to you who set-up or will host a candy buffet for you.
