A Candy Buffet on a Budget

a candy buffet on a budget

When it comes to a throwing a baby shower a great addition is a candy buffet. The problem is they can cost hundreds of dollars and one article I came across even mentioned it costing over $1,000! For my baby shower I knew I wanted a candy buffet but that it needed to be done on a budget so I want to share my tips and tricks for having A Candy Buffet on a Budget!

Pinit

Where to Begin:

  1. When starting to plan the candy buffet for your baby shower or celebration, you need to determine what your colors are going to be. For my baby shower, my colors were blue and brown so I went with those same colors for the candy buffet.
  2. Determine the amount of candy you will need based on the number of guests you expect to attend. Of course the more guests you have the more candy you will need. I planned my candy buffet for 40 guests and still had a ton of leftovers.

What You’ll Need:

  • Candy (different varieties, sizes, and colors)
  • Vases, bowls, and other containers that can be used to place candy in
  • Candy scoops and tongs (these work better for larger candy)
  • Candy buffet signs (optional but add to the overall look)

Tips for Saving Money on a Candy Buffet:

  1. Purchase vases from Dollar Tree. I found several different sizes all priced at $1.00. I loved that they were the same thickness in glass so everything matched nicely.
  2. Check your local thrift store. Don’t worry about the containers being dirty because luckily glass and plastic can be ran through the dishwasher.
  3. Borrow containers from family, friends, and neighbors. Remember that you will want a few different sizes and styles of vases. Seek to have them clear though so you can see the color of the candy inside but borrowing can significantly help lower the overall cost.
  4. Purchase candy from your local grocery store or Winco. I was able to find quite a bit of candy at Winco in bulk. Their prices were about half the cost of the candy priced at local party stores. You will typically pay more at party stores since that is where they make money. Another great place to check is your locally owned Kroger Affiliated store. My store (Smith’s) had some great deals on candy.
  5. Again check Dollar Tree for candy. They have things such as mints and even bags of candy priced for $1.00. As long as they fit within the colors of your theme, they will work and save you money.
  6. Try to purchase candy after a major holiday. If you have an event in August, check for candy clearance after July 4th. After Easter, Christmas, and Halloween are perfect times to purchase candy in bulk for super cheap.
  7. Favor boxes are relatively inexpensive. Depending on the occasion, you can find matching favor boxes for your theme and it will help you save money. Other ideas include clear white cello bags (which can also be found at Dollar Tree) and include cute curling ribbon for guests to tie their bags with.

My Breakdown:

So you can see these tips really do work I made a breakdown of the cost of my candy buffet. This includes the containers, serving utensils, and coordinating signs.

Candy

  1. (5) Whoppers- $1.25 a box at Smith’s= $6.25
  2. (6) Bags of Chocolate Covered Pretzels- $1.25 each at Smith’s= $7.50
  3. (6) Pounds of Taffy Candy (on sale at Smith’s for $1.99 a pound)= $11.94
  4. (40) Suckers found at local party store for $0.39 each= $15.60
  5. (25) Rootbeer Sticks found at local party store for $0.28 each= $7.00
  6. 3 pounds of Sixlets Candy found at Winco in bulk bins for $2.39 per pound= $7.17
  7. 3 pounds of root beer candies found at Winco in bulk bins for $1.59 per pound= $4.77
  8. (5) bags of “It’s a Boy” Mints found at Dollar Tree for $1.00 each= $5.00
  9. (5) bags of Pearl colored gumballs found at Walmart in the cake decorating section for $2.97 each (way cheaper than the party store)= $14.85

Total cost for Candy= $80.08

Containers

  1. (4) glass cylinder vases at Dollar tree for $1.00 each= $4.00
  2. (1) Large Plastic Bowl at Dollar Tree at $1.00= $1.00
  3. Plastic Tongs (come in a 2-pack) for $1.00 at Dollar Tree= $1.00
  4. (4) Plastic colored candy scoops found at local party store for $0.78 each= $3.12
  5. (2) Plastic martini glasses found at Walmart for $1.97 each by the party decorations= $3.94
  6. Rest of vases my mom let me borrow

Total Cost for Containers= $13.06

Note: I made the cute candy bar printable myself on my computer using word. The labels sticking into each container were made by Live Bright Designs on Etsy to match my Baby Shower decorations with my son’s name personalized on them. They were $6.99 and printing them on cardstock at Kinkos cost another $7.00.

Final Cost for Candy Buffet for 40 guests: $93.14 (without the printables)! Not a bad price at all for a candy buffet on a budget!

I hope this helps you save the next time you are wanting to create a candy buffet. Also feel free to leave your tips on how to save in the comments below!

Baby Bottle Bath Salts Favors

baby bottle bath salts favors

Favors are a great way to show appreciation to your guests for attending your baby shower. If you are looking for a fun and inexpensive favor idea then check out this post! I am sharing with you the Baby Bottle Bath Salts Favors I made for my baby shower. To go along with it, I also have my own Homemade Bath Salts Recipe listed below! I hope you enjoy making these as much as I did! :)

Pinit

What You’ll Need:

  • Baby Bottle Favors- I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $7.99 for a 24 pack. Use the 40% off weekly coupon and pay $4.80 for them.
  • Epsom Salt (You can find the Morton brand at Dollar Tree for $1 a bag)
  • Sea Salt (Find at local grocery store or Trader Joes)
  • Dendritic Salt (optional but it helps hold the fragrance longer)
  • Skin safe fragrance or essential oil (you can purchase this at Hobby Lobby although I prefer getting it from Brambleberry)
  • Food Coloring (again found at Dollar Tree for $1)
  • Measuring Cups
  • Spatula or other mixing utensil
  • Small funnel (helps create less of a mess when filling baby bottles with the bath salts)
  • Curling ribbon (optional)
  • Printed or handwritten labels the size of return address labels (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Create a large batch of bath salts in a large mixing bowl using the provided recipe below. Be sure to get a bowl that is specifically for your bath salts and that you won’t be using to make food in ever again. We don’t want anyone getting sick.
  2. Use the small funnel to help scoop bath salts into each plastic baby bottle. Since the bath salts settle, you will want to lightly tap the filled bottles onto the counter so help pack the salts in tightly. Once tapped, you can fill it with more bath salts and move onto the next.
  3. Once all the bottles have been filled you can use the curling ribbon to attach your printed or handwritten labels around the lid of the bottle. I simply used a return address label template (prints 30 to a page) found in Microsoft Word to create mine. I then printed them on colored paper and cut them out using my manual cricuit cutter.
  4. That’s it! You will now have adorable Baby Bottle Bath Salts Favors to give to your guests!

Here is the final result:

Homemade Bath Salts Recipe

Homemade Bath Salts Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of Epsom Salt for every 1 cup of Sea Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Dendritic Salt (optional)
  • 12 Drops of Fragrance or Essential Oil
  • 75 Drops of Food Coloring (or enough to reach your desired color)

Instructions

  1. Start by mixing your Dendritic Salt with the 12 drops of Fragrance or Essential Oil in a small container and set aside. This is the part that will really hold your scent.
  2. Combine 2 Cups of Epsom Salt with 1 Cup of Sea Salt and Mix Well. (I made 48 baby bottles with 6 cups of Epsom Salt and 3 Cups of Sea Salt)
  3. Combine the Epsom and Sea Salt Mixture with the Dendritic Salt and Fragrance Mixture. Stir well to remove any clumps inside the salt.
  4. Add your desired amount of food coloring until you reach the color you want. Keep in mind that the shade you initially see won't be as dark as the salt settles and soaks up the colorant. To achieve the teal color I made, I used 75 drops of blue food coloring but you can adjust this amount accordingly.
  5. The last step is to run your hands through the mixture and remove all the clumps by gently rubbing them between your fingers until you have a smooth mixture. I suggest wearing gloves during this step to avoid skin irritations.
