ummmm…. I always thought the candy WAS the decoration for the candy buffet.  We’re doing our own take on it, and it’ll just be the candy on the table…. 

at least, that’s what he wants and I’m not gonna argue him 😉

You could do petals around the table instead of having an actual centerpiece.  Or maybe a couple blooms….

I don’t think you need a centerpiece at all. We did one and just had a framed sign in the center.

Missed the part about it being out for cocktail hour. I like the 3 smaller ones idea, but I wouldn’t go crazy with it.

@Mrs. Cooper:

What about some giant lolipops? You could make fake ones or just buy some, stick in a bucket with some Flower Foam at the bottom.

If you put your candy in cute bowls I dont think you would need to decorate. Maybe use some tulle or meshbetween bowls to look like they are floating on the table? Maybe put a chalk board up “Comming Soon – Candy Bar” Then have someone write on the back about what you have when you put the cnady out..?

Could you show us pictures of your candy bowls? what types of candy are you using?

I think the pic you have here looks very nice, just a little something to take up the space… I am having a candy bar as well but my cocktail hour is in a different location than my candy bar/ dinner reception so mine will be set up the entire time but no one will be near it untill dinner.

@Mrs. Cooper: if that’s the case, I’d go with something small that can be easily arranged around the candy dishes.  Something like in the photo with votives should work, but you also want to be careful of heat.  If you’re using the LED votives, you should be fine, but candles can (and will) melt chocolate

trust me on this! kids + power outtages + chocolate = fun experiments 😉 


I’d maybe experiment with the candy dishes and what you would use (as in vases, votives, etc) and see what the easiest method is using a table (or space) similar to what you’ll be using at the reception.  That way, you can pick the size you want without having to waste money and time (if that makes sense?)
