- Wedding: June 2010
We adapted the candy buffet idea into a trail mix buffet as our wedding favors.
We went to Sam’s Club and bought chocolate chips, Honey Nut Cheerios, peanuts, cashews, craisins, red sixlets, and dried bananas. We had planned to include peanut butter chips and dried apricots, but our budget just didn’t allow for much more.
It went very well, and we only ran out of the cashews early. My only changes would be signage. Some of the longer titles, like Chocolate Chips, was too big for the hole punch I used on other items and looks a bit big. I also wish I’d made stickers for the little bags we used, they were plain clear jewelry bags.
I found the vases all over, from Michael’s to my Grandma’s pantry to the thrift store. I bought the ladles from a restaurant supply store for $1 each and found the plastic scoops from Scoop Scoops online for about $1.50 each.
