Wedding Candy Can Make for Gorgeous Shower Centerpieces

Your special day is all about celebrating the sweetness of love and what better way to make your shower a little bit sweeter than with wedding candy? Wedding-themed candies can be a delicious way to add some color to your shower tables. Plus, they make for a sweet treat for your guests.wedding candy decorations | BlairCandy.com

Here are a few ways you can use wedding candy in your shower centerpieces:

Colorful Candy Jars: There’s something about glass canisters filled to the brim with candies that makes you feel like a kid again. Choose wedding candy to match your wedding colors and then fill several glass jars with them to place in the center of your tables. Choose jars of varying heights and sizes for a whimsical touch.

Candy Bouquets: If you’re feeling crafty, turn wedding candy into a bouquet by using non-toxic adhesive to fasten candies by the wrapper onto wooden dowels in fun flower shapes! Or, if you want something that’s even more edible, unwrap the candies and use a cake maker’s adhesive, which is completely edible. There are tons of tutorials out there to help you make a wedding candy bouquet using tissue paper, a mix of fresh or artificial flowers, or other ingredients! Place your bouquet into a vase and enjoy.

Lollipop Trees: Decorate a clay flower pot and use floral foam to create a base for your lollipop tree. Then, use a wooden dowel or decorative rod to make for the “trunk”. At the top of the dowell, place a round, foam flower ball. Stick individual lollipops into the flower ball – you can make patterns, alternate colors, add bows or rhinestones, and so much more!

After the shower ends, encourage your guests to fill up their goodie bags with the decorations as a sweet favor!

Then, in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter and add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows have melted. Turn off the heat and pour ¾ of the marshmallow over the popcorn, folding together gently until the popcorn has been coated.

How to Create a Candy Buffet for a Themed Party

 

Themed Candy in Bulk | BlairCandy.com

If your child is having a themed party, you may be wondering how to pull off a candy buffet to match. Luckily, Blair Candy has plenty of themed and non-themed candy in bulk to help you create a memorable experience! These are a couple helpful things to help you start building your buffet.

Everything doesn’t have to match.

It’s a common misconception that everything on the buffet has to match. In reality, this will make things very boring! Just have a couple candy options that have the main character or side characters on the buffet. These should be unique and have another function to them, like a candy toy or a mint tin. These also bonus as a party favor, so choose wisely

 

Plain colored candy in bulk is your friend.

Take the colors of the theme and match them to plain colored candy, like Sixlets, lollipops, and gumballs. These will fill in your buffet and add a bit of interest to your table. You can print out themed place cards and rename candy to fit the theme to make it more fun! Guests will definitely enjoy looking at the different candies and the cleverness of your place cards

 

It doesn’t have to be just candy.

Baked goods can also be a delicious addition to your candy buffet. We recommend to sticking to smaller items, like mini cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops. Fit them into the theme by using themed plates and by decorating them with the theme’s colors.

Get started on planning a spectacular candy buffet with the help of BlairCandy.com today! We have a variety of TV, movie, sports-themed candy to make your child’s special day even more special.

Planning a Spring Wedding? Let us help!

Wedding Candy | BlairCandy.com Did you get engaged over the holiday season? Congratulations! This means you may be spending your winter planning your spring or fall wedding. If so, let us help with the sweet parts of your ceremony! Whether you’re planning a full candy buffet or just a few party favors, Blair Candy is the place to go for your bulk wedding candy. Here are a few suggestions on candy planning to get you started:

First, if you want to put out a full candy buffet, figure out how many people you plan on inviting. Many sources suggest that you should plan to have enough candy for every guest to take home about a pound and a half of candy. This doesn’t include the big, centerpiece treats such as cupcakes, oversized lollipops, or full sized candy bars.

Second, where will your ceremony be held? If you plan on spending the majority of the reception outside, stay away from candies that will melt, like regular chocolates or gummy candy. Instead, plan for Sixlets, lollipops, or the classic Jordan almond.

Finally, check out candies in your color scheme. We have plenty of wedding candy by color, so you can find the best candy that will stay within your theme. Don’t forget to add an accent color or two to your candy selection!
