Candy buffets are always a large hit with guests — especially their versatility in the way you can customize them to fit a specific style. My most adored part of these interactive displays, is the set up itself!

You own creative liberty to be as over the top or minimalist as you select. From decorative themes, to candy selections, varying sized platters and jars, to trendy labels or custom signage — the options are endless and without a doubt one of my favourite tables to style.

Kids’ Birthday Party: Forest Theme Candy Buffet Your Kids Will Go Wild For

I love this Forest theme candy buffet because it is so creative. They used candies to create an original outdoorsy candy buffet. «For example, root beer jelly beans are used as the forest floor. Lollipops are «trees», and blue jellybeans will become a meandering stream. Your gummy worms live in the «stream» with the candy fish.»

Doesn’t that sound amazing?

There’s more:

«Buy some real-looking trees or use plants that glance love trees and they become the forest.

Candy owls hide among these trees, looking for guests to pluck them out and take them home.
