Candy Buffet Displays Do Not Have To Be Stressful!
Do You Have a Theme?
Having a theme candy buffet isn’t entirely necessary, whether you’re throwing a party or you’re trying to move inventory in a store. However, if you have candies that can create a theme, or a particular theme comes to mind, making it obvious to people looking at the candy isn’t a bad idea, and it might help pique their interest in the candy
Examples of candy themes could include a retro candy buffet – candies that have been around for a long time, for example – or even a dark chocolate candy display. Stenciled letters and decorative objects can make themes immediately understandable if they feel confusing.
Picking Your Containers
The containers you use to display your candy are every bit as important as the candy that you’re displaying. For the most part, you want to make sure you’re using clear containers that allow the colors and image of the candy to shine through. For candy that’s in boxes or can be displayed on its own, colored containers can work.
Ideally, you should be using a mixture of containers – ones of different sizes and shapes. Tall, elegant jars work well for small candies like jellybeans. Shorter containers in various shapes should also be mixed in to create visual interest within the display.
Whenever possible, mix and match large and small containers of different heights and depths, but always keep the tall containers behind the shorter ones.
The Importance of Asymmetrical Design
When setting up a store display or candy buffet, many people think a symmetrical design is their best bet, both for convenience and interest. While it might seem that way at first, an asymmetrical design is actually much more appealing to people looking at the display.
If you’re trying to attract customers, a candy buffet with an asymmetrical design scheme will likely help you move more product. At a party or event, a candy display that’s asymmetrical in design is going to much busier and a bigger hit than one where everything is totally balanced and even.
Simply put, symmetrical designs aren’t as interesting to the eye in terms of products like candy.
Organizing by Color
Another unique way to organize a candy display or candy bar is by setting your candies up in groups of color. For example, you could have a whole series of red, blue, green or yellow candies. Alternately, you pick from a few different colors and mix and match the candies to create a two-toned look that’s very design friendly.
While organizing by color can be eye-catching, it isn’t always necessary. In most cases, candies are bright, interesting colors, and grouping all of them together can be eye-catching enough. Just make sure you vary the colors and don’t create dark and light spots that aren’t visually appealing.
However you choose to organize your candy display, the ultimate goal is to create visual interest and inspire people to buy or eat the candy you’re displaying. While these rules can help guide you, anything that’s visually appealing or thematically appropriate for your store or event will often work.
