Colorful Candy Buffet by Clau!

I’m excited to share some inspiring party pics with you today… Clau! created this wonderfully colorful candy/dessert buffet for her nephew’s M&M-themed birthday. Everything is bright & cheerful, just like a birthday should be!

One of the first things to catch my eye was this awesome Kit Kat / M&M birthday cake, which she found the tutorial for here. This one is definitely getting starred as a “must-try” in the kids party ideas archive!

Another eye-catcher… the florescent orange & yellow Oreos. (To make your own, melt colored chocolate chips or Candy Melts, or tint white chocolate chips with food coloring).

I also loved the yellow ribbon used to accent the candy scoops, tongs, and glass containers. The use of just one color of ribbon on everything helped give all the different types of candies a cohesive look.

The table sign, treat bag stickers, and food tags were inspired by the Dylan’s Candy Bar logo and m&m’s theme.

Thanks again for all the great eye-candy, Clau!
