Sweet Love for Edible Decor

So, candy tables have been popular for a few years now, and there is no short supply of inspirational ideas.  Cookies, cakes and cupcakes all work too.  My favorites are the ones that stick to a color scheme and don’t go overkill with too much stuff.  These are great for any kind of party from birthdays to bridal showers.

Here’s a few things to think about when doing your own table:

Pick a color scheme: Stick to the theme of your party or wedding.  Bringing in other colors will only make the table look too busy.
Use more than just jars: Any kind of vase or apothecary jar will work.  Make sure you create depth and height in your display, so every piece can be seen.  Stick a box or book under the tablecloth so that some jars are taller than others.  You can use cake stands or plant stands to add lift.
Tie in decor: Use some of the centerpieces or decor from other parts of your event to help decorate the table and tie everything together.
Don’t forget the scoops: Make sure your guests aren’t digging things out with their hands!  Tongs and scoops are perfect for picking out their candy.
Bags and containers:  Make sure your guests can take some home.  Little boxes or baggies are perfect for the road.

Here are some beautiful examples:

And here’s my own…And here’s my cousin Tatum’s ice cream stand.  This was awesome and they built the stand themselves!
I found too many!  See more on my pinboard Candy and Other Sweets…YUM!
