So we have most of our candy and our jars but I have no idea how to decorate the table. I am not good at decorating things at all.
CANDY: The colors are red, black, and white…..most are red, a few white, and just 2 are black.
TABLE: I am thinking a round table. The table cloth will be white…I am hoping to find a black one….
LOGISTICS: There will be a lot of kids, so I don’t want candles on the table or anything nonedible (like scatter). I like the idea of different heights but I don’t want anything to be too hard to reach. Tulle? flowers? decorative items???? Grrrrr 🙁

We are using vases that range from plate height to 16″.. we are putting the taller ones in the back, with the lower ones in the front. We have a scoop or tongs for every container. [We have TONS of containers.. we are using an 8 ft table so lots of space!].
For decorations, I using a white tablecloth that match the guests tables, and a homemade tulle table skirt. I will have 2 light up eiffel towers with flower balls like this, but in pink :
No feathers.. just a flower ball on top.

ladydirtold: If you are having a round table, I would confine the decor to the middle of the table. Perhaps a tall thin vase with spray painted red branches or red flowers.
or a manzanita tree type centerpiece

ladydirtold: If you don’t have a pinterest account, get one. This will be your saving grace! I’ve been on their wedding boards & holidays and events board a lot lately, and I have seen so many examples of candy boards. It’s definitely worth a shot.
