One very simple way to incorporate a color theme into a candy buffet is to layer candy in glass vessels.

 

Candy Layering

 

In the example above, layers of 1-inch green and white gumballs are coupled with white Sixlets and kiwi green foiled chocolate balls. White candy is always a great choice as it pairs with other colors perfectly.

This combination would work just as well at a neutral baby shower as it would at a Christmas tree-trimming party or St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

Set up takes minutes vs. hours. Plus, beautiful candy is a great conversation piece, and it can be used as a dessert item as well as a take-home treat.

 

Unexpected purple and yellow candies are a beautiful combination for a candy buffet.

 

With candy layering, you can color-match any party theme.

For a wedding with an unexpected color combination like lavender, yellow, and white, you can layer yellow and white gumballs, and accent with purple foiled chocolates, and grape unicorn lollipops. Just a few of these candy-filled glass containers will complement a cake, cupcakes, and other wedding pastries.

Candy combinations are endless, which can make buying overwhelming. A great place to start is SweetWorks’ Celebration candy collection. Each candy in this line is developed specifically for mixing and matching. Another great starting point is the candy by color page on Candy.com.

Use SweetWorks Celebration product line as a base, and incorporate chocolate bars, truffles, jelly beans, gummi candies, hard candy balls, and lollipops.

 

Valentine Candy Buffet

 

In the Valentine-themed candy buffet photo above, foiled chocolate hearts are layered with white gumballs. The focal point is a single red and white swirled lollipop centered in a glass jar filled with white Sixlets.

The jar brimming with hot pink, white, and red Sixlets ties the color scheme together. Only four types of candy are used in this candy buffet, but the color combinations make it look as if there is more.

Get inspired and send us photos of any candy layering that you have done! We’d love to see and share your work on the blog. (Send your photos and contact information to media@candy.com.)
