Get inspired by this DIY candy buffet bar from La Petite Fete
We’ve said it once, and we’ll say it again: when it comes to kid’s parties (or any kind of celebration, for that matter!), one of the most important elements is the dessert.
So, if you’re planning a party for your little one and want to go all out with just one major feature, may we suggest highlighting an OTT candy buffet setup like this one from A Charming Fete’s sister company, La Petite Fete?
The creative duo from Ohio, USA were commissioned to create a candy shop wonderland for former ‘Project Runway’ designer Valerie Mayen's fashion line, Yellowcake Shop.
The custom sprinkle floor and 3D candy button bar were the starting point of their nostalgic candy dreamland, which they perfectly executed using a fresh and bright palette of every colour imaginable. The result? A setup that will rival Willy Wonka’s factory!
What’s not to love about a candy bar? To start with, guests can pick and choose their own sweets, so they’re not left with anything they don’t want to eat. Secondly, when done as well as this one, dessert buffets can also double as stylish decor. And finally, they’re the perfect party favour – simply provide loot bags for guests to fill and take home at the end of the night! Too easy!
Our fave dessert? Ooh, it was hard to choose just one but we’re going to go with these jumbo gummy bear cookies!
LENZO loves a party tip – what did La Petite Fete share with us?
“We wanted to do something more creative and unique than a traditional candy bar. Think outside the box and don't be afraid to get your hands dirty. We used spray-painted, plastic Christmas ornaments for the DIY candy button bar, and customised the colours on the sprinkle floor for a perfect match.”
And lucky for you, we’ve managed to source most of the party products so you can recreate your own candy buffet bar at home – or better yet, ask LENZO to style it for you!
