Never underestimate the power of sweets

Some might think that the trend of creating a candy buffet at your reception is long over. I disagree. You can never go wrong with giving your guests not only something beautiful to marvel at but something delicious to take home. My husband and I were married in September 2005 and to this day, people are still talking about the candy buffet. During the cake cutting, the staff at our venue set up the table in the bar area. When people turned around, they gasped. We heard people saying things like, "I feel like I'm in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory".Image credit: theknot.com

Giving your guests edible treats works really well if your guests are out of towners. We didn't want our guests having to lug some chotchky back to Kansas City so we opted for edible favors. We carried our theme right through to the bags for the candy buffet and the sign on the table that read "O'Boyle's Sweet Shoppe".

So, when thinking of your favors, remember you can never go wrong with sweets!
