- Wedding: December 2010
OK, I admit it… I’m a complete nerd. I mean, I know that there are other planners in the world, but I’m such a dork. Who makes a graphic plan of their dessert buffet? Me, apparently that’s who. So here’s how I got here…
I knew from Day 1 that I wanted a candy buffet at the wedding, but I was a bit stymied on how much I would need- I mean, we’re only having 55 guests. But then, like manna from heaven, I read an article that clarified my vision into a crystal-clear image of sugary goodness. Basically the article stated that if you want visual impact, plan your buffet as a decoration, rather than a catering option. That did it, I was off to the races in researching how I wanted this bad boy to look.
I knew I wanted a mix of candy and other desserts (partially for aesthetic reasons and partially for budgetary constraints) and I am in love with apothecary jars. So after hours of scouring the web and reading hive posts, I have come up with a plan! That’s right, I made a plan. Enter nerd-dom.
Now I know how many containers I’ll need, how much candy to buy, and how much time I’ll need to devote to baking cupcakes and cookies. The wedding isn’t until December, but the buffet is planned. Check that off the list.
I’ll wait until fall to order candy so that I won’t have to worry about expedited shipping or cold packs. All the jars have been purchased now and are squirreled away in a closet. And I’ve decided on tin-tie bags for the guests, so I’m feeling confident. About one thing at least!
