Last weekend I made my very first candy buffet! Shocking right? I’ve dreamed of many but never before created. I figured my sister’s baby shower was a great place to start because babies are just SO sweet. Especially this little one. The shower was cohosted by some of Ali’s best friends and it was just perfect. More photos to come from the shower but while I work on those, here are a few shots of the candy bar set up.

I was a little overwhelmed with trying to visualize how it would all come together but I think it turned out well for my first go at it. I bought the candy at Jack’s wholesale in downtown LA. The place is amazing- bulk candy from floor to ceiling. Aka my dream. The prices were very reasonable compared to online and storefront candy shops. Then I just put them in glass containers and used ribbons and stickers to spruce things up a little. So fun!

My only regret? Well if you read this┬áthen you realize that I didn’t eat any of the candy! Hello, torture. But don’t feel bad for me yet- I have a TON of leftovers, and 11 other months to eat it :)

love and candy,
