Hostess with the Mostess: How To Set Up an AWESOME Candy Buffet!

candy-tableJust in case there’s ever been any question about it, candy is pretty much our favorite thing. We live it, breathe it, and love it with all our sweet-toothed hearts, so we find it pretty darn difficult to improve upon the sugary stuff… unless, of course, it happens to be arranged into a sweet and sparkly display!

Tonya Coleman from Soirée Event Design used color-coordinated candies from to create one of the most impressive buffets we’ve had the pleasure of seeing. And to make things even better, she wrote up an awesome blog post for Hostess with the Mostess to lay out the finer points of her glittery pink and white creation! Tonya’s guide is simple to follow yet entirely effective in helping plot the finer points of a darling and delicious display. Her six golden rules?

Step 1:  Decide on a theme and colors
Step 2:  Pick out the types of candy you want
Step 3: Setup the table in 3 zones (back, middle, and front) with appropriate containers
Step 4: Figure out how much candy you will need
Step 5: Design your table with a wow-factor tablecloth, backdrop, and centerpiece
Step 6: Make finishing touches

Feast your eyes upon these photos to see the finished product — we just can’t get enough of her sweet style! (And remember to check out her site for more awesome design ideas!)
