Stop what you're doing!

I just learned about something so exciting, so delicious, I can hardly stand it: CANDY BUFFETS. I love this white one. Holy cannoli.
I'm the first person to rail against the whole wedding industry-- you know, that "it's the most important day of your life, therefore you must have the best of everything and put yourself (or your parents) into debt for the rest of eternity" kind of crapola. But apparently, the "hot" new thing is to have candy buffets as your dessert or favors. Instead of little net bags filled with ancient, stale Jordan almonds, you have a big, glorious table with jars and buckets and trays full of candies. Each guest gets a box or bag (maybe a Chinese take-out container or fancy tin) and they get to fill it with whatever treats they want. HOW COOL IS THAT?! I don't know what I'm going to do with this information, but it's so exciting. Maybe I could be the Candy Buffet Princess and run my own business. Ooooh! Or, more likely, I'll just have to have a Candy Buffet Party.

I'm planning a big party to get rid of some of my candy (sorry ... share my candy with my wonderful friends) and will be doing it "buffet style".

I'll try to make some nice pictures of it, maybe give you some ideas.

I bought a bunch of different containers, but ended up going with little clear cups with lids that are stackable and clear bags with twist ties.
