Pick a Color Palette
Picking your color palette is the number one thing to consider before designing your candy or dessert table. What is your event theme, what are your color themes? It’s not necessary to limit yourself to a single hue, as long as everything is aesthetically pleasing, feel free to choose a whole spectrum of colors that go well together.

The next thing you should consider is adding some dimension to your candy jars as well as plates that you might use. Choose a range of shapes and sizes to add depth and height to your design! Keep in mind the size of your buffet table. Typically a one 6 foot table works well for dessert tables. Don’t be afraid to stack some boxes under some jars to give it height! If the boxes are not pretty, cover it with the linens you are using to set up. Get all your jars from Amazon! They have amazing deals right here!
