Friday Favorites- Baby Shower Candy Buffet & favor bags

Well, it's no secret that this chubby lady loves CANDY. ;) Who else is with me?
I've had gestational diabetes with all 3 of my pregnancies. Luckily, it goes away the minute the baby is out.
It makes no sense that I would torture myself with so much sugar in one place-a candy buffet...oh, but call me crazy... I loved the faces on all my guest last year when they saw the cute candy buffet table I put together.
SO, I'm doing it again! Here are some fantastic candy buffet tables I found on none other than, Pinterest.
 

I love the pompoms and paper lanterns above this table. It makes the table that much more appealing. I was thinking this would look great over the buffet table.





Although this is a Christmas theme candy table, the colors match mine. The selection is small, but I think its perfect!



I like all the baked goods at this table...I might be able to convince my sister to bake cupcakes and cookies. mmmm.



Love the flowers in the vase, but it might be just a tad too fancy for me. This would look really nice at a wedding. lol



Here is my absolute FAVORITE table. It has affordable treats! I'm definitely having yogurt covered pretzels, mama's animal cookies, M&Ms and taffy....all pretty cheap items. :)



Here is the favor bag I made. They won't be sewn shut. But I plan to sew the bottom. I have crochet flowers in there instead of candies, it was just to give you an idea of the finished baggie.



Here is a close-up shot of the details.

 Here is what I used:
5X7" Glassine envelopes from It's in the Bag!
Paper doilies
Pink Twine from The Twinery
Pink fabric
Paper tag-Shabby Chic Crafts Grandma's Doilies
American Crafts Pattern paper (butterfly- used MS punch)
Crochet flowers (custom made by Liliy's Crochet)
Hope you have a great weekend...We will be releasing more tags in the shop next week. :)
xoxo, Veronica

My friend had a candy buffet at her daughter's Quince's last year. My girls loved it, but my husband and I raided that thing with gusto (along with ALL of the other adults). It was a fight to the finish with those kids. I think these are all so beautiful, it really doesn't matter which one you choose.

Oh I shouldn't have looked - I am currently borderline with gestational diabeties and finding it quite hard - all that eye candy is making me want real candy lol.
Love your little gift bags.

I would go for the table with the cheap items. Aside from pink, which is my fave color, milk chocolate-coated pretzels and M&Ms are also must-have's in parties! I'm also planning to throw a party for my little girl next month, so I'm gonna imitate the cupcakes and cookies theme. I think I'll be needing to set an appointment with our family dentist in Rock Hill a day after the party. Haha! Thanks for sharing these, Veronica!

Shabby Chic Crafts said...

Thanks ladies.
Kristen- I agree. I'm thinking the dentist will love me for providing so much sugar to 20+ ladies...hahah
