How To Set Up A Candy Buffet Bar for a Baby Shower

Candy Buffet Bars can transform any party and here are some planning tips to help you set up your candy buffet for your baby shower.

How to set up a Candy Buffet Bar in 6 easy steps! 

STEP 1: Decide on a theme, color palette & matching decor.

Once you decide on a theme it will dictate your color palette and matching decor.

Tip: Instead of using flowers or decorative centerpieces, you can use a cupcake tower. This allows you to use the space on the table wisely in order to display more sweets. 

STEP 2: Display 4 different categories of candy.

  1. Bulk loose candy: which is sold by the pound
  2. Individually packaged candy: offer one per guest
  3. Designer candy/sweets: offer one per guest
  4. Display candy: used for decoration & filler

It's always best to use a mix of 4 types of candy. That way, you can display them in a variety of containers and ensure that there is a mix of individual items that guests can choose from.

STEP 3: Set up the table in 3 zones with appropriate containers.

Divide your table into 3 horizontal zones and use height-appropriate containers in each zone: Back Zone, Middle Zone and Front Zone.

TIP:You can use acrylic stands to elevate shorter containers to make them appear taller in the back.

STEP 4: Figure out how much candy you will need to order.

It’s better to order in bulk, and the general rule of thumb is to order 8 ounces of candy per guest. 

STEP 5: Personalize your table with matching printables.


STEP 6: Add the finishing touches.

Once you have all the candy to match your color palette, the last thing to do is add these finishing touches to enhance the theme.

Tip:Give personalized candy favors!
