Now that you’ve seen some fabulous Halloween Candy Buffets and have gotten a few ideas you can get started creating your own Halloween Candy Buffet. The first thing you need to do is determine your color scheme. The colors for Halloween are Orange, Black and White but if you want to add a splash of color you can incorporate some of the non-traditional Halloween colors like purple and green.

Table Linens: To create a foundation for your candy buffet you should start with a tablecloth. You can use a solid colored tablecloth such as orange, black or purple, take a layered approach by adding a table runner atop a solid tablecloth or use a Halloween themed tablecloth.  Here are a few ideas

Candy Jars: Now think about what you want to serve. Is your Halloween Candy Buffet going to include desserts or will it only have candy? If you are going to have desserts as well you should incorporate serving trays with varying sized candy jars. For the candy you can use mason jars, apothecary jars or even make your own. I love these DIY Candy Jars that Heather at At the Picket Fence made.
