The spring wedding season is just around the corner and a pink wedding candy buffet table would be so fun! It could be set up at a wedding reception or at a bridal shower. I used items from the David Tutera Bridal Collection to decorate this table.
I decided to go with a pink, white and silver theme for this candy buffet. When I was little, one of my aunts had pink and gray as her wedding colors. I thought it was so beautiful so of course, I wanted pink and gray for my wedding colors “when I grew up”! By the time I got married, I no longer wanted those colors but thought it would be fun to use them for my table setup.
To make everything look pretty, I used some of these items from the David Tutera Bridal Collection which is available at Michaels.
I purchased several apothecary jars from Michaels to fill with candy. They happened to be on sale when I went into the store so I saved a bunch of money and didn’t even need a coupon! To decorate the jars, I took the David Tutera Bridal Collection Bling on A Roll and attached it to the jars using glue dots. Bling On A Roll is really cool because it is rhinestones on mesh. The mesh can be easily cut and is flexible so it can be attached to whatever you want! For some of the jars, I cut the bling into narrow strips and for other ones I just short strips. If you are looking for a more permanent way to attach the bling, try using a glue like E-6000.
To make the Candy Buffet sign, I first covered the base of a David Tutera Bridal Collection Table Number Stand with a piece of the self-stick rhinestones shimmer sheet. Then, I painted a table number sign pink. Once the paint was dry, I stamped the words Candy Buffet in the center.
Next, I cut squares of pink polka dot tissue paper and wrapped it around Blow Pops. I tied the tissue paper on with a piece of baker’s twine and added a David Tutera Bridal Collection Self Stick Rhinestone to each one. I laid the lollipops on a white tray with a piece of Bling On A Roll attached to it.
One the lollipops were covered, I moved on to decorating the bags. I found this mason jar full of hearts stamp on clearance at Michaels and bought the white bags there as well. I stamped the corner of the bag and added a piece of washi tape so that the bag can be held shut.
Finding pink candy wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. There are a lot of different bags of candy that have pink in the mix but they aren’t exclusively pink. I used strawberry milkshake Whoppers, Valentine’s M&M’s with the reds removed, pink foil wrapped Hershey Kisses, milk chocolate Godiva truffles, pink, watermelon flavored licorice and the covered Blow Pops. For a beverage, I found sparkling grapefruit IZZE and added pink striped paper straws to a glass cup topped with more of the Bling On A Roll. The little silver candy scoops are lined up waiting to be used. They already have a rhinestone on them so I didn’t have to add anything to them. I love how it all turned out. This kind of Candy Buffet wouldn’t only have to be used for a wedding. Wouldn’t it be fun for a baby shower or a birthday party too?
