If you didn’t want to add any additional decorations, using different heights/levels helps create a more dramatic table, and can also help preventing the table from looking bare. For example, in this picture the appetizers are placed on different levels, imagine how they would look if the plates where just placed on the table (IMO it would look bare & boring) but the height gives a nice effect 🙂

I’m using more than 20 different containers of various shapes, sizes, etc., with ribbon decorating them to make the candy display itself interesting. I also plan to have a table runner underneath the jars to add some more color, and since I have a woodsy theme for my wedding, there will also be several bird’s nests with jelly beans for eggs.

I’m not using any "decor" (like ribbons or beads), but we are using foam blocks of different heights to place the containers on (under a table cloth) to create height dimension and we will have a cute sign announcing "Love is sweet, help yourself to some treats!"

I went to a wedding with a candy buffet last year that also had a lot of kids in the party…needless to say, the candy buffet looked pretty empty towards the last couple hours of the reception! so for mine, i am putting a couple more vases with flowers and some candles too along with different heights of the candy jars.

You could put out little sections of different bags/boxes/containers so your guests can take some candy home with them :).

How about putting the chocolate fountain, with several fruits, that could make the table look fuller.

I haven’t figured it out, but I want to add desserts to the candy buffet. Like all pretty and stuff.

I put a couple of picture frames on our candy buffet with our engagement pics in them. I also put the take out boxes stacked in a wire basket to take up room as well.

For my son’s wedding, I’m planning to put on the table a framed picture of each of them when they were kids … hopefully I can find a good close up of each of them…and a small table easel blackboard that says something like “Love Sweet Love” or “Be a kid again, help yourself to our candy buffet!”.  Then I’m going to scatter some daisies (we’re doing a gerber daisy theme) around the table for color. 

The main wedding color is coral and there aren’t too many candies that color so I’m going to have to expand to pink, peach, and yellow.  But I’m still trying to keep it to those colors.  Any ideas of candies those colors would be appreciated!!
