No matter what type of occasion you happen to be hosting, creating a wonderful sweet display is usually one of the best features of the event. People seem to love these displays more than anything else, and we’ve determined for reasons why that we will share right now.

- they are the perfect DIY projects since anyone can do this themselves
Are you starting to see the value in creating a stunning sweet display?
How Many People Are Attending Your Event?
When creating a stunning sweet display, you first need to determine how many people will be attending the event in order to figure out which size is best for your guests.
Think about it.
How will you know the amounts of candy to buy if you don’t know how many people are coming to the event?
As an industry standard, it’s recommended that you have 8 ounces of candy available per guest.
So, using simple mathematics, if you plan to have 100 guests at your event, you’ll need to have 50 pounds of candy available to accommodate each guest according to industry standards.
Since there are 16 ounces in a pound, you’ll need to buy 1 pound of candy for every two guests. And since you’ve invited 100 guests, 50 pounds of candy is the correct amount to have available to make sure that all of your guests can get their fill of your sweet, wonderful candy.
Remember, since you are creating a sweet display, you’re not going to buy 50 pounds of the same candy. You’ll need to mix and match according to your theme, which we will discuss below.
What Is the Theme of Your Event?
Next, the best way to figure out the right types of candy is to determine the theme of your event before purchasing supplies of any kind, candy included.
For the most part, a party color palette will usually make up 2 to 5 colors, with 2 being on the low side and 5 being on the high side. You’re probably better off sticking somewhere in the middle to stay on the conservative side.
Normally, most people will stick to a 2 to 3 color palette. This is fine. Quite honestly, it’s recommended.
As an example, let’s say you’re having a Frozen themed birthday party for your daughter. Frozen’s color scheme consists of blue and white. So, you’ll have to buy blue and white candy to create the perfect sweet display.
Selecting candy & Adding the Final Touches
Selecting candy is the fun part of the process. Choose sugar-free candy that fits well with your theme. Some excellent options include:
- rock candy
After you’ve chosen the candy, putting the buffet together is a snap. Put your candy in clear plastic or glass containers and make sure everything is color-coordinated and varies by size. This is the simplest way to create an amazing sweet display that your guests will love!
