Candy Buffet 1980's Style

My dear friend Leslie's daughter Abby got married yesterday. Abby grew up in Connecticut, so even though the wedding was in the mountains of Utah she wanted a classic East Coast theme for the reception.
 I was asked to put together a candy buffet. The bride and groom wanted old fashioned candy which to them means treats from the 1980's and 90's! Harrison LOVES all of the sour candies that were so popular then so we had a very tart but sweet assortment! 
I used Sour Patch Kids, Sour Patch Watermelon, Airhead Extreme, Sour Patch Straws, plus some classic Starbursts, gumballs, Ring Pops, Twizzlers, and some local 
Salted Caramel Chocolates 
(For those guests who aren't fans of candy that makes you pucker up!)

It did make for a pretty display with all of the bright colors on a crisp navy and white cloth.

 And here a just a few pictures of the flowers in whites and pink all arranged in crystal compotes.

The vineyard tables were lined with lanterns and bud vases filled with hydrangeas, ranunculus and stock. 

Mr. and Mrs. Harrison Johnson! 
The weather was delightful, sunny and warm but not too hot. One couldn't ask for a more lovely wedding day!

I like to join
