Naughty or Mice? Holiday Candy Buffet

December 21, 2011 § 1 Comment

The holidays have all seemed to have a reoccurring theme. It all started with Halloween’s Jack-o-Mousketeer cake pops and it all went downhill from there…

This is my first candy buffet I’ve done on my own- it was so fun! Especially shopping for the candy- there’s this great website called Candy Warehouse that sells bulk candy all separated out by color. They even have a video tutorial to help me visualize the volumes of the different candies.

Next time I’ll definitely use a different color for the ribbon so the labels stand out.

The sign was created in Powerpoint- I used this background download from HWTM with some white shapes drawn over it. So easy! Not to mention, the scroll labels were also created in Powerpoint by placing Word Art over a jpg I found online and twisting it.

My favorite part was the backdrop- good thing because it took me about four hours, two movies, and two glasses of wine to finish! Thanks so much to Oh Happy Day for the tutorial- for mine I used crepe paper streamers instead of crepe folds. Limited color selection but much cheaper and it’s already cut into strips.  I also added in strands of silver cut from a metallic curtain- the remaining silver was strewn on the buffet table to ground the jars.
