It’s All About?
What is a Candy Buffet?
Candy buffets are custom designed buffet tables laden with candy and desserts.  Imagine an elegant array of glass apothecary jars filled with gourmet candies and sweet treats. Each piece comes adorned with tailor made labels and ribbons all made up in your event theme. Doesn’t that sound amazing? We agree.
A picture says a thousand words, so make sure you have a peek at our gallery.
Why should I have a candy buffet at my event?
Because it will make your event sensational! Candy Buffets and Dessert Tables are not only delicious ways to present sweet treats, they are a feature that will make the whole room look fantastic.  They add the perfect flair to any party, and also make amazing photos.
If you want your guests to be blown away by your event, we are the people to talk to.
Can we get the candy buffet to match my event colours and theme?
Definitely! This is what we are all about. Colours, themes and styles are our forte. We can do elegant, fun, crazy, creative, corporate, or anything else you can think of. Everything will be tailor made to fit your event.  We can even help you come up with a theme or colour scheme if you are stuck.
Are candy buffets suitable for weddings?
Indeed. In fact, candy buffets are perfect for weddings! If you want a unique and beautiful day that incorporates a fun and whimsical element, and also keeps your guests entertained and well-fed, then you definitely need a candy buffet at your wedding.
Can you provide candy buffets for children’s parties?
Absolutely! We cannot be emphatic enough in our answer to this. If you want your children to have the best party of their lives, invite us to come along. We can make an amazing Candy Buffet in any theme you could dream of. And we think you will find it is not just the children that will be eagerly lining up for candy!
Can you provide an attendant to maintain the candy buffet during the event?
Sometimes our Buffets and Dessert tables look so good, they can create a stampede. Not to worry! For $40 an hour we can provide specially trained candy buffet attendants. These amazing people will calm and soothe your guests and assure everyone that there is plenty to go around. They will also serve the candy, and keep everything topped up and looking spick and span. They are always friendly and wonderful- after all, they are surrounded by a lot of sweetness!
Who is responsible for setting up the candy buffet, taking down and cleaning up?
We do it all. We will arrive 3 hours before the event starts and get everything set up and looking perfect. Afterwards, like small efficient wood elves, we will quickly and quietly pack it all away and vanish without a trace. All we will leave behind are bundles of any remaining candy that we will package up and leave for you in a convenient place.  Just like magic.
What are the table & linen requirements?
Our candy is serious stuff! So it is essential that you have a strong solid table to support the buffet and the glassware. If you don’t have tables, we can bring them, and we can supply linens too (if hiring a venue, please check if they supply these things). Just make sure you let us know beforehand, so we can get straight to work when we arrive to set up.
How much candy do you provide?
Let us know your guest numbers and we will bring the perfect amount (and you will usually have some leftovers to take home).
Can the candy buffet be set up outdoors?
Yes! A garden, a patio, a waterfront, a park, you name it. A candy buffet can be set up anywhere providing the area for the table and the space around it is completely level. Steep hillsides may be tricky.
Do you require bookings and a deposit?
Yes, we require a signed contract and a 50% deposit at the time of booking. The remaining 50% is payable 1 month prior to the event date.
What areas in New Zealand do you cover?
The Couture Candy Buffet Company proudly services the whole Wellington region. However, there are a lot of candy lovers in New Zealand. For National enquiries please contact us to discuss your requirements.
What happens if there are breakages?
Don’t worry- Accidents happen. We can sort this out after your event. A refundable breakages deposit is required at the time of booking your candy buffet. Please see the pricing page.
