40th Birthday ideas

 

Turning 40 is a big deal. Some people embrace this, others choose to ignore it. If you’re all about embracing this new chapter in your life and your plan is to host a party catering for all of your friends, a candy buffet is the ultimate 40th birthday idea. So if you are seeking something sweet for your birthday, but aspire to something more upmarket and memorable than a bowl of party mix and Twisties, then a 40th Birthday candy buffet is the perfect alternative. We can come to your home or venue, set up your birthday candy buffet in beautiful glass jars that match your party’s theme, style and colour. At the end of the night, we arrive and pack away the lolly bar.  If you’re holding a dinner, a cocktail party or a BBQ, it is the perfect option for dessert. For these kinds of functions, it’s best to concentrate on making the food and drink the main attraction, so what better way to do this than with a candy buffet!  The lolly bar can act as a gorgeous centrepiece to your event and can also be entirely personalised. Our candy buffets are high quality, creative and something a little more special than what you would normally have at your party. You want your 40th birthday to be remembered, so make sure you pay more attention to the food styling and presentation to make it feel more distinctive and unique. The best way to do this is to include a candy buffet.

For those of you sitting there thinking you’re too old to have something like this – adults LOVE a birthday candy buffet too. Don’t think it’s just the kids that get stuck into a birthday candy buffet. We’ve been to countless upon countless parties where kids have had to stand in line while the adults helped themselves to our delicious candy buffet. We can include so many of your childhood favourites in our lolly buffets. Remember the days of walking down to the milk bar to fill up your brown paper bag with all the delicious lollies? Not only do people go nuts for candy buffets, it is such a great icebreaker for your guests. You’ll have everyone talking to each other about the opening of the candy buffet!

We tailor our candy buffets to suit all of your requirements so you can count on The Candy Buffet Company to create the ultimate 40th birthday lolly buffet to impress your guests.

We can personalised your candy bar to include your name which creates a perfect centrepiece to your room as well as the ideal backdrop for photos on the night. You can look back on the photos in years to come and remember what birthday you were celebrating. We can also personalise the little candy boxes with your name and event date. Using your theme, these can act as a little thank you gift for your guests to take home. Trust us – everyone will be filling up their lolly boxes to take home, some people will even fill up two!

What Our Happy 40th Birthday Clients Have Said

Thank you both so very very much for my awesome Candy Buffet on Friday night for my 40th birthday party! It was gorgeous!! Everyone that walked in the room couldn’t go past without a “Ohhhh” or an “Ahhhhh”. And when the Candy Buffet opened you could feel the mouth watering joy of our guests. The professionalism of your staff leading up to my event, and on the night, left me not only completely impressed with The Candy Buffet Company, but I was also made to feel special, and that to me was a winner. I love you guys.

The staff at The Candy Buffet Company were wonderful and easy to work with, making fantastic suggestions for my husband’s 40th. The variety of sweets covered all likes and the buffet display was classy and beautiful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a wonderful alternative to a birthday cake and something with a big WOW factor to it!
