Summer is such a fun time! The fact that it’s so laid back and relaxed make it the perfect time to get together with loved ones to catch up and enjoy each other’s company. There’s nothing more relaxing that a good ‘ol summer barbeque with a group of your favourite people! That’s what we recently did this last weekend. My Husband, the kids and I loaded the car and traveled three hours away to my hometown, so that we could be a part of the summer BBQ my grandmother was throwing at her house.
The BBQ was amazing, and my grandmother and other family members had spent a lot of time making sure that each and every detail of it was perfect. The food was great, the company was great, and the atmosphere was perfect… there was only one thing missing…. that one little tiny detail that worked to take an already amazing event to the next level…
A candy buffet!
In case you didn’t get the memo, candy buffets are all the rage these days! I surprised my grandma by bringing all the ingredients necessary for an awesome candy buffet along with me, and setting it up for everyone to enjoy!
How do you set up a candy buffet?
Well, the first thing you’ll need is the candy… of course!
I used Celebration by Frey products for our candy buffet. They’re the perfect products to use for a candy buffet, or really to enhance any party for that matter. Not only do they come in many different colors and formats like gumballs, Sixlets, Pearls and Candy Crumble… they have also achieved a beautiful Shimmer finish on their products that sets them apart from the competition! Celebration by Frey products are available at major retailers nationwide including Party City, Walmart, Target, and Michaels. Most of these places also sell really cute candy buffet accessories you can use for displaying and serving your goodies.
You can be as fancy or as casual with your display as you like… it’s really up to you! Be sure to provide your guest with some type of bag to put their candy in (I love the little cute to go boxes) and something to scoop up the candy with!
We all had such a great time filling up our candy boxes, and the candy buffet proved to be a pretty awesome icebreaker as well! Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a Celebration by Frey candy prize package to use at your next get together!
