Sweets are an important part of any summer party. Whether it’s a birthday, bridal shower, gender reveal party, or a cookout with friends, you’ll want to make sure you can satisfy each guest’s sweet tooth. Happily, you can find colorful Celebration by Frey items at Walmart, Target, Party City, and Michaels. Use these items to make your DIY candy buffet a success!

First, stock up on beautifully bright Celebration by Frey candy.   I used shimmer gumballs, Sixlets, and pearls for this display.   You can find these in bags, shaker jars, and stand up bags.   Next, plan the location for your buffet. The banister of our deck was the perfect spot for our candy party. A lightweight spring scarf from my own collection dressed it up. Then, I started on the candy!

I like to set out the candy in ways that guests can sprinkle right into their hands or on dessert plates. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on serving pieces. Look for various glass containers in your cabinets.  Empty, clean spaghetti sauce jars and jelly jars can be reused as excellent dishes for a candy buffet.  Layer the candy with contrasting colors or use a single shade, as shown in the photo above.  I had one unique metallic bowl that made an interesting focal point for these Googlie eyes! These colors stand out in such a way that not much additional decor is necessary.

A bonus for the gumballs — use them to keep insects out of your bottled drinks!

My favorite candies are Sixlets. I love the way that they have a crunchy shell with a sweet chocolate inside. They’re ideal for a candy buffet because they make such an attractive focal point. If you have a small caddy or extra wall shelf, use it for height.  I found this wire shelf at a tag sale a few years ago.  It makes a great candy display, don’t you think?   It helps to bring the candy to eye level, and provides visual interest. I especially like these shimmery candies because they look so luxurious, while they’re actually very affordable!
