Inexpensive Candy Buffets

August 2, 2015

 

Wedding season is in full swing and I've been hard at work on one of my favorite projects…the Candy Buffet. Typically a nice candy buffet can run anywhere from $600 to $1500 or more (depending on number of guests and desired detail.) This post is designed to provide you with information on how you can have a beautiful, yummy candy buffet without breaking your pockets. Now this will require you to be practical by looking for weekly deals at my favorite craft stores, but the outcome will be worth it. Keep in mind that you are more than welcome to add depth with backdrops and fun accents, but for the sake of your pockets we are keeping it simple.
