Spring Racing Carnival Ideas

Spring Racing Theme

When spring has sprung, there is a flutter in the air, and when we hear fluttering we all race to the spring carnival races! If you’re not lucky enough to be in Melbourne to enjoy the Melbourne Cup celebrations, then a Spring Racing Candy Buffet is the next best thing! Some of our most glamorous candy buffets have been set up in offices around Australia to celebrate the Melbourne Cup, and of course other race meets Australia wide.

While we do not focus directly on the Melbourne Cup, The Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne is the largest Horse Racing event in Australia.
We also cater for the following:

Spring Racing Themes

As Merryl Streep as Miranda Priestly famously said in The Devil wears Prada “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking” , but we have to ask the question, why mess with a classic. Florals for Spring Racing really do go hand in hand,  but we have found that even amongst the gorgeous roses, and the blooming Peonies, many of our clients have other requirements.  We can create beautiful bold candy buffets with gorgeous colour blocked elements… or we can do a sweet mix of gorgeous pastels. We will build your candy buffet to suit every requirement that you have. We’ve worked in spectacular intimate and exclusive marquees at Race courses Australia wide, or in corporate staff rooms, meeting rooms or retail spaces. We can cater for every guest, to bring the excrement and intensity that the spring racing carnival atmosphere brings to offices and workplaces Australia wide.

Guests are always gasping and giggling away by our candy buffet tables and it serves as the perfect icebreaker for those events where guests may hail from a wide array of backgrounds. Further, for those guests that may tend to over-indulge in refreshments, the candy buffet keeps guests eating, extending their enjoyment of your marquee far beyond expectations. Finally, as guests retreat for the day, you can count on your brand swinging from their candy boxes as they head off into the evening, giving your brand even greater shelf-life after the event.

If you require the candy buffet for the whole of race week, we can work out a package that will give you maximum bang for your buck.

What our Clients have to say

We booked the candy buffet company for one of our Spring Carnival Ladies luncheon in October. The buffet was extremely popular with guests with a line halfway around the room of ladies eagerly awaiting to select their lollies. The attention to detail, quality and presentation of the lollies was first class and the table looked beautiful. It certainly added to the success of our event! Thank you.

Thanks again so much for your stunning candy buffet last Friday –we were all so pleased. Was great to work with you and hope to do so again in the near future.

The Candy Buffet looked just gorgeous, especially set on the window with the sunlight shining through! Everyone on my table was so impressed and filled their little boxes to the brim with goodies!
