I am thinking of doing a baked goods table (like candy bar, but with bouchons, macarons, tarts & cookies). However, I don’t want to buy tons of stuff and have it go to waste since it is expensive, and I don’t want people to think they can take handfuls of stuff so that others leave empty handed.
I was trying to think of ways to control the amount of stuff people take. I would like to keep it like a candy bar and to not have to put the favor at each person’s table setting since I like the idea that of people being able to pick what they want. So far I’ve thought:
1. Buy small boxes so they cannot overfill the box.
2. Leave empty box at place setting with a note that says to take a treat (and hope they get the idea to take 1-2 treats, and not a ton of stuff)
3. Put a nice sign on the table.
Does anyone else have any other ideas/solutions??

You could prepackage them with a little bit of everything? Have them all laid out and people can take one box each?

I like option 2… along with 1

I think the small box will work. Also dont have tons of extra boxes so they cant take doubles.

is there some way you can work a program into a bag for the treat buffet?
that way everyone will only have one bag. and you can make it small:) just a thought.. I am curious about this as well because I am planning on having a candy buffet.

We’re considering doing the same thing, and options 1 and 2 sound good.
As far as having too much left over, we’ve talked about bringing the leftovers to the morning after brunch. If you’re having one, that could be a good option.

are you doing some type of escort card? you could have the boxes with a little bow and a tag with each person’s name
