1st Birthday Party Ideas for Candy Buffets

Oh the joy of your babies 1st Birthday party! Gathering all of your loved ones, family and friends that you have made along your journey to celebrate the momentous 1st birthday celebration, is cause for an all out extravaganza.

Planning your child’s first birthday is an exciting time for you and your family. From selecting a theme, and figuring out how to incorporate it through out the entire birthday can however prove to be quite difficult.

Don’t waste another moment of energy, as a candy buffet is the perfect centrepiece for your child’s 1st birthday party.

At The Candy Buffet Company we have developed amazing lolly bas to match any theme that you have decided will suit your child! We have listed below a few just to tantalise your taste buds, and get your thinking caps on! Of course, we can not limited by the vast, and fun selection, our theming and styling ability is far and wide! We love a challenge, so even if it is not a style or theme that we have worked with before, we would love to try something new with your lolly buffet!

As candy buffet stylists, we can deliver whatever 1st birthday lolly buffet idea you have in mind, but our experience has shown us that traditional seems to be the trend at the moment.

Yes, we can deliver younger concepts, which reflects much of what is probably already decorated throughout your child’s room (e.g. cars, princesses, jungle animals, ocean creatures, etc.). The overwhelming response from our happy mums after the event has been amazing! Mums rave about how we capture elegance and innocence together that is neither boring for the younger set, nor patronising for adults.

Added to this, a candy buffet is both contemporary as the concept is the very latest in dessert styling, but also maintains a classic touch as the lollies always indicate a hint of yesteryear for your guests.

Create your own 1st birthday party ideas!

A recent 1st birthday lolly buffet was a client that came to us with the theme or general motif of a hot air balloon that they wanted used in the event. From this we created customised chocolate bars and decorated the entire buffet with this custom theme.
