When you think of a kids’ party, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For most of us, it’s CANDY! The old expression “like a kid in a candy store” has a lot of meaning- kids literally go crazy for candy. A very popular trend today, for kids parties (& adult events too), is a candy/sweets station. Although many of our clients stick to a piñata, many are opting for the modern option of a candy buffet. This way each child has the option of choosing the candy they’d like in a cute & organized manner.
Most candy stations include about 5-10 candies, (Miami Party Entertainment gives customers the option of 10), each is displayed in cute jars/containers, jars/containers have custom labels, loot bags/boxes are included with custom tag, and the table is usually decorated according to theme and includes linen & balloon decor.
I absolutely LOVE candy/sweets stations for 3 reasons. 1. It makes for an activity (the kids love getting their own little custom loot bag/take out box and filling it with their favorite candy. 2. It eliminates the hassle of bringing everyone together for piñata and eliminates the possibility of a candy hitting someone in the head a little too hard. 3.They are just so fun & add that special touch to any event!
Here are a few pictures from candy/sweets buffets we have confectioned & styled in the past few years. Feel free to gather ideas & inspiration for your next soirée. ENJOY!
Remember, if you’re more of a sit back and relax kind of person, Miami Party Entertainment can put together a candy station for you in minutes and for about the same as it would cost you to do it.
I hope you enjoyed looking through our pictures and that you have gained much inspiration for your next event!
