Here is an article with a few tips for making your own candy buffet:
1) Buy enough candy – this is both for an aesthetic purpose and to make sure everyone can take some. To really make the candy buffet a “wow” factor experts say to use 5 to 10 different types of candy and around 15 pounds each.
2) Use containers that coordinate with your flower vases. Clear vases at differing heights will showcase the candy and add to the drama.
3) Tie the candy choices into your color/theme. Having a pink and green wedding? Then use different types of pink and green candies. Planning a beach wedding? Incorporate your favorite beach candies like saltwater taffy.
