Being an OTT lolly lover and seeing so many cool lolly buffets on all the fabulous blogs about the place, I had already decided to have a lolly buffet before we even got engaged.
My twinnie and I love lollies ... when I was younger and people would ask what my favourite food was, nine times out of ten I would say with enthusiasm 'lollies!!!!' This love of candy almost definitely contributed to the big bucks I ended up paying my oh so lovely dentist in the recent past to repair probably ten years worth of holes and damage.
There are a couple of vendors around town who will set up a lolly buffet for you ... AND charge you a bazillion dollars for it. There are some really nice jars with lids at Targets but at $35 a pop you may as well pay to hire them. But being the thrifty (and scungy) chick I am I have already picked up two very large glass vases (one looks new) for our buffet. I still have a few yet to get but I have plenty of time to keep hunting.
With a bit of a clean I think this old chest of drawers (blogged about here) will fit the bill, adorned with vintage lace doileys and maybe some bunting signage to direct guests to the sweets.
On Friday one of my newest blog 'friends' pip posted about her ideas for the lolly bar for her wedding also scheduled for November. I am in love with the stickers she's ordered off etsy to stick on her lolly bags for guests to fill up.
Some other cool ones:
Check em out in Etsy seller's MAUpromos shop...
Pip, you may have inspired me to use some of these labels too. I hope that's alright.
What sort of lollies would you have? Ours are a secret until the BIG day.
Over and Out.
