Alright, so I still have until next summer to figure this out, but I'm stuck. I want to incorporate candy into my reception (vintage themed - elegant vintage, not that rustic barn stuff), but am unsure how to do so in a cheap way. I have looked at centerpieces (leaning towards these) and buffets, but I'm unsure what will go with our favors...or if doing candy and our favors would be too much.
Our favors (I haven't purchased anything yet, but I LOVE these!) are St. Dalfour's 1-oz. jars of jam. We'd order a variety of flavors. Our colors are mint green, lavender, and ivory.
We are doing small floral arrangement's for our centerpieces, but I love the idea of either putting lollipops or rock candy (or both or other types of stick candy) in the centerpieces or doing small bowls of different candies at each table (to encourage guests to mingle).
What do you think? Jams and candy too much? I want to do something that is different...even though candy buffets are increasing in their popularity as are those colors, but still...how can I be creative with this?
Also, if you or someone you know used candy where'd they get it from? I've been looking around online, but just in case I missed a site or store.
