Sweet Buffets: The New Wedding Favor
By Tammy Edwards, The Candy Lady
Planning a wedding 20 years ago, the variety of wedding favors was limited. Most weddings would have napkins or matches with the printed name of the bride and groom. And most likely, these would end up in the trash before the end of the evening! Or maybe the couple chose to have bubbles as their favor. But, as the children blew bubbles all night, the floor would suffer, ending up sticky and slippery.
Gone are the days where your favor ends up in the trash. Give your guests one they’ll love and have fun putting together: A sweets buffet!
These delectable sweets tables are a completely unique take on favors. By using china and crystal, the sweets will be displayed beautifully. Plus, you can use your wedding colors to tie in the theme. Guests will receive a gift bag inscribed with your name and wedding date, but instead of ending up in the trash, it’ll get filled with sweets.
And the best part? They’re completely customizable to your tastes. From Reese’s to Ferrero Rocher to Swedish Fish, find candies that hold a special place in your heart. Maybe it’s something your guests KNOW you love; everyone has a favorite candy!
Think about it, when’s the last time you had a table full of your favorite candy in front of you ready for eating? Truly like kids in a candy shop, a sweets buffet brings that undeniable sense of nostalgia to your reception. Guests, while putting together their goodie bags, will say, “Oh my goodness I haven’t had one of these in forever!”
Maybe candy isn’t for you. Why not have a sweets buffet full of cake pops, cotton candy, popcorn or doughnuts? You and your guests will enjoy these treats, not only on the day of the wedding, but on the way home, and possibly the next day.
Think about it, when’s the last time you had a table full of your favorite candy in front of you ready for eating?
Have some fun with your favors! A sweet treats buffet will not only tie together your color and theme but also reflect your personalities. We guarantee that these favors won’t end up in the trash!
