Use a colour scheme that matches your wedding
palette: wedding color us aren't just for the flower s
and bridesmaids dresses! Taking advantage of the
colours you've already established can enhance your
candy table's presence, and bring cohesion to your
Create depth and height in your display: with
simple boxes or even books, you can sculpt a beauti-
ful landscape on your table. You can wrap the boxes
in decorative paper, or even leave them bare and
covered with matching linens for a refined, free-flow-
Don't be afraid to use trimmings: details like good
quality linens, ribbons, and paper can add nice touch-

More than jars: apothecary jars and similar con-
tainer s tend to be the standard, but don't miss out
on other shapes and sizes you can find elsewhere!
Vases are fabulously inexpensive alternatives, and are
easy to find. Don't be afraid to use cake stands, flat
platters, and other ser ving ware to give your guests a
variety of ways to choose their sweets!
Scoops, tongs, and other ser ving ware should be
small enough to get the goods!
Colour is key: as mentioned before, having a spe-
cific colour scheme can really make your table pop.
Make sure to consider different hues and shades --
for example, if your colours are red and brown,
don't be afraid of using different shades of reds and
pinks. If using primarily dark colour s, try to use trim-
mings in lighter shades to bring energy to your table.

Not just candy: if you're open to treats in other
forms, consider mini cookies, popped corn, or spiced
nuts as sweet additions.
Don't buy too much! It's easy to worry about
not having enough for everyone, but if you're plan-
ning to include a meal and cake in your reception,
guests probably won't be stuffing themselves with
extra sugar. A small por tion of half a cup or less is a
good estimate per per son.
