What is the best candy for a candy buffet table?
In my opinion, small candies and bite-sized items work best for candy buffet displays. Individual candies, such as Skittles, jelly beans, M&M’s, gumballs, individually wrapped mini candies, and other small sweets are great for scooping. If you are adding other treats to your dessert table, we recommend they are also small in size, like mini cupcakes, donut holes, etc. Sometimes, a standard-sized cake is used as a centerpiece, but that should probably be the only large item on the table.
Where to buy candy for your candy buffet
You can purchase the candy from a local or online candy store and plenty of supplies can be found at party stores, dollar stores, or on Amazon. I did a small candy buffet for a friend’s baby shower last year and I found a lot of glass jars and colored ribbon at the dollar store. It was a lot of fun to create using these best candy buffet ideas!
