1. Variety and Types of Desserts

A variety of 7 to 10 different types of sweets is most appropriate and will make the candy buffet table an unforgettable experience.  

To choose the variety of desserts let's take into account:

  • Sweets and pastries with chocolate are usually favorites, so it’s advisable to choose a greater variety within the chocolate category.
  • Playing with white and dark chocolate will bring more color to the dessert table, and chocolate fondue fountains, for example, are very colorful and decorative.
  • Desserts with fruits will bring joy and color. Strawberry cheesecake, passion fruit sabayon, and fruit tarts are fresh, light, and above all - delicious.

2. Explanatory Cards

To match the rest of the chosen party signage, you can place a small blackboard or photo frame next to each container to inform of its contents. A simple and decorative way to dress up the table, which will also be very useful for people with food allergies or intolerances (nuts, dairy products, gluten). It’s also important that this area has optimal lighting so that everything can be seen without problems.

3. Use Harmonious Colors

We can choose a single color or a combination of them for our candy buffet table, the important thing is to achieve good harmony and a good color mix. The ideal combination is to choose between two and four colors. If the table is themed the choice is easier because the motive will dictate the guideline, just follow your instinct. The choice of candies also influences the colors to be used.

4. Create Levels

This is one of the most important features of an eye-catching candy buffet table. You can create different levels with different containers, decorated boxes, wooden boxes, glass vases, or even cups and any other element you can use to place the candy. These heights or levels will make your dessert table look fuller and more harmonious. Place the tallest containers in the back and in the middle something you want to highlight, such as a cake or a cupcake stand.

5. Create a Focus Point

This is easy if there is a cake, as it is usually the focus, but if there is not going to be a cake on the table, you should look at what alternative you’re going to put and create a focal element, such as a giant flower arrangement. Another way to solve the absence of a cake is to stack the stands, placing one on top of the other makes it reach the height of a cake and enlarges the space to place other sweets.
