I’m in need of some help when it comes to my candy buffet. My color scheme is eggplant, gold, and ivory, but when I think about a candy buffet I think more colors and more “upbeat.” We’re doing all sorts of colored candies, but I’m having a hard time with, should the whole thing be eggplant, gold, and ivory? Or should it be more “rainbow-y” and fun?
How did you decorate yours? Pics are welcome!!

If you are having all sorts of colored candies, I would keep the background more neutral so the candies will be the color that pops. Gold cloth and all ivory or clear glass cakestands and containers or the other way around.

It always looks cool when you do a colored scheme, but the problem with it is many of the best candies that people would really enjoy dont fall in a color scheme.
EDIT: misread you post. I think keeping the glass clear is best so people can see what the options are. As for table clothes, you could do anything. Maybe make the signs the fun colorful part.

Hey! Your my color scheme twin as we’re also doing eggplant, gold and ivory!
My suggestion would be to do whatever candy you would like…but then keep the decoration of the area with your scheme (ie: eggplant table cloth, eggplant and gold signs, etc.) to incorporate your theme.

i havent done a candy buffet but i was thinking about it for my wedding also! i agree w/previous posters.. its sometimes hard to find a good variety of candy in specific colors.. so i would go with fun, rainbow colored candy (or mix up the colors as best you can/variety/etc) and keep the decorations on the table with your scheme.. thats what i was planning on doing and think it would work out well! and i would keep the glasses clear

I’ve seen good and bad buffets.I would choose only a few colours of candy that matches your theme and wedding colours. What really makes a great buffet is by hiring or buying proper glass jars that are different shapes and sizes. Using flowers on the table as well really helps the table pop. Also having small signs professional printed makes a massive difference!! Light table cloths also make the candy pop alot more too.
Have you seen this post
I’ve posted a pic for you as well:

The wedding colors would be best and i will say, its EASTER time, lucky for you I have seen lots of candy wrapped in the eggplant and gold in the stores. i am having a candy buffet, but in pink and white, thank goodness for Valentines day sales. 🙂 Candy freezes well.
