Lolly Buffets are still on-trend... we don't care what anyone else thinks.
I mean, who can resist lollies and chocolates?
Keep reading to learn how to create a totally EPIC lolly buffet for your next event.
Start collecting glass jars or vases. You do not need to spend a fortune on jars or vases.
In fact, you can find beautiful jars and vases at $2 shops and thrift stores.
You may even surprise yourself and have some vases at home that you could use.
Try picking vases/jars that are unique in size and style. Don't settle for jars that are all the same. Spice it up a little!
*TIP: For the best looking lolly buffets, we recommend having 5+ jars.*
On your search for jars and vases, you should also look for scoops or spoons and don't forget... lolly bags.
You can either get gorgeous metal scoops (which can be purchased at your local kitchen stores) or you can opt for a more cost-effective alternative like plastic. They both do the job wonderfully.
Also on your hunt, we advise looking for cute lolly bags. They can be as simple as a brown paper bag or the old fashioned plastic cartoon bags - there are so many of these around now all in different styles, price points and colours.
If you want to be a little more extra, you could always use noodle boxes or be creative and design your own.
Having bags is a great idea because your guests can scoop up the lollies they would like and take them away with them.
NOW PICK YOUR THEME!
Themes can be anything from having a strictly pink theme or maybe you could have a two-colour way theme.
We have had customers in the past who have done Frozen themes and Minnie Mouse themes.
NOW ITS TIME FOR THE LOLLIES!
Wallies Lollies has an extremely large range of lollies - both mixed and colour coordinated to cater for your lolly buffet needs.
When picking your lollies try and be creative while still considering the theme and colour scheme you have chosen.
You should allow for about 200g of candy per guest.
We recommend that when purchasing lollies from us for a lolly buffet that you buy 1kg to be safe.
Tips and Tricks
Try and use the bulkier lollies. These can be Marshmallows, Fantales, Sherbet Bombs or Musk Sticks.
If you don't think you have enough lollies, use tissue paper to lift the lollies up.
