This candy buffet was inspired by those yellow faced men with funny accents….Minions!
Minions are a huge hit with adults and kids alike. Their silly language and unique voices make way for the ultimate of belly laughs.
We decided on the yellow and blue theme and added some fun tidbits like party sequins, Minion props, hats, balloons, and toys. Make your very own by following our tips on creating a themed candy buffet like this one!
An important aspect for a flamboyant Candy Buffet is the jars you will be using.
As you can see, we chose large jars and decided to keep the tops off some of them. We do this to accentuate the goods inside of the jar.
By choosing different sizes like tall, short, and long you are able to create dimension, and a bit of variety within your buffet.
We also used plastic sand pales to introduce a splash of color into the candy holders. Fun!
You can buy these types of glass jars at any craft store, such as Michaels . You can save a little money by looking at a place like Big Lots . Smaller budget and more time, try flea markets and consignment stores, they often a great place find jars for your candy buffet.
Don’t forget to check out your local Dollar Store for awesome deals. The blue and yellow plastic buckets were only $1 each. STEAL!
Our selection of candy was an array of blue and yellow treats to go along with the Minion theme.
We chose an assortment from small pieces of chocolate to large chunky pieces of Rock Candy pops. The variations go as far as your imagination!
Our shop has a limitless collection of colorful candy and they are arranged nicely for you in a COLOR category. Feel free to click on the links if you would like to use the same types of candy for your buffet
Here are the candies we decided to use for this project:
We ran to Party City and grabbed a slew of Minion inspired decorations. Everything was less than $5 each so you can say we are pretty thrifty in my opinion.
By placing the banner in the background it gave the buffet a fun, party time look. A minion hat was used as a replacement for the glass jar top. (See, this is where imagination comes in). We also had a neat balloon that we set in the cylinder shaped jar and filled with blue and yellow malt balls, this made the jar itself look like one of the little minions! There are also a few bouncy minion balls that you can place into your theme for added fun. You can’t forget to sprinkle some bright, colorful sequins onto the table so your guests can add a sparkle to their eye while admiring your buffet!
Final Quick Tip: Use your left over candy for To-Go favors for your guests! These bright yellow favor boxes are only $1 at Party City. OH SO nifty!
There you have it! All the makings for a perfect Minion Candy Buffet. We hope your family and friends enjoy eating it as much as you enjoy making it!
