DIY Wedding Wednesday: The Candy Bar

IMAGE1

Looking for something sweet to treat your guests with? Candy bars are a great way to help celebrate your big day. The pop of color, design and of course the tasty treats make it a fun addition to any wedding. They are also a great way to add a personal touch to your reception. Use these tips to help create your own Candy Bar that your guests are sure to enjoy!

Stage Your Candy Bar!

It is all about presentation! Stage your table with containers of various heights, tallest at the back for easy access to all items on the table. By using large, clear jars to display your candy, it makes it effortless for your guests to scoop the sweet treats. Trays for smaller candy can be put in front to vary your Candy Bar décor and give it that extra little touch.

Apothecary Jars

Pick Your Treats!

Choose a variety of candy types such as bulk and individually packaged candy. Have grab n’ go items available. Some of our favorite options are filled mini gumball machines and chocolate bars. Want to make it your own? Pick candy colors and types to match your theme or personality.

Takeaways

Having favor boxes or containers available is a must! This allows your guests to take as much or as little candy as they want. Your guests can also take a treat home for later to remember the occasion. Make it even more special by customizing the container with a personalized label or tag.

It’s All In The Details!

Incorporating signage on your table can help your guests pick and choose with ease. Don’t forget the scoops and napkins to avoid those sticky fingers. Personalize the napkins with a unique message to your guests.

Use these sweet tips and you’re sure to create a personalized Candy Bar that your guests will love!

diy mini mason jar favors

Today marks our first DIY post of the summer season and its definitely got us channeling our inner garden goddesses. With our green thumbs covered in soil we’re showing you how to create some of the sweetest “sun-spired” party and wedding favors around. And to top off these ultra cute giveaways we’re pairing them with simple wooden stake place markers, making them a super smart concept too.

The Supplies

The Step by Step

diy mini mason jar favors - step 1

Step 1: using any variety of grey spray paint, give your jar a base layer of grey paint. Don’t worry about a perfectly even application. You just need a thin base, concentrated on the pressed letters of your jar.

diy mini mason jar favors - step 2

Step 2: using alternating vertical, horizontal and angular strokes, coat the jar with your vintage paint. To ensure that vintage finish, avoid a perfectly even application, allowing your grey base to come through in some spots.

Step 3: without allowing the paint to dry, using a cloth or just your finger, gently rub the paint off the pressed letters, and in any additional spots on the jar where you want more grey to peek through.

diy mini mason jar favors - step 3

Step 4: fill your jar with potting soil and then transfer your succulent into the jar, such that just the top is level with the opening.

Step 5: complete the look with a stake place marker and a thank you tag.
