Read on for all the details!
To create your very own Candy Buffet, you will need…
- Assorted birthday-themed Hershey’s candies, available at Walmart Stores nationwide
- Assorted glass jars and containers
- Paper take-home boxes
- Assorted decorations: paper fans, chalkboard, pom-pom garland, etc.
What I love about this Birthday Candy Buffet idea is that each child can pick and choose the items they love best to take home with them, and it takes just a matter of minutes to prep. Birthday parties with Hersheys really are so much more fun!
A simple display made with Jolly Rancher Lollipops is a great, eye-catching element here. To make, place a styrofoam ball in the center of a glass dish, and poke the stick end of the lollipops around the top half of the ball, as shown.
Fill in around the ball with Hershey’s Kisses Birthday Cake candies, which pack the taste of birthday cake into just one satisfying little bite!
In seconds, you have a fun little lollipop centerpiece to go along with the rest of the goodies on your candy buffet!
Glass jars of assorted sizes can be filled with other yummy treats in a rainbow of bright, fun colors.
Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates wrapped in brightly colored foil can be placed in a colorblock fashion in a clear jar for a pretty rainbow effect. The bright colors of these new Hershey’s birthday products make for an instantly fun display!
Don’t forget to also include assorted Hershey’s Assorted Miniatures and Kit Kat® Miniatures…
…along with Jolly Ranchers Chews and Twizzlers Nibs and Twists to make sure everyone at the party has something yummy they will love to take home as a thank you for attending the party! New Hershey birthday products are dressed in their party-best to fit a variety of birthday themes and help make the day that much sweeter, and small paper take-home boxes will ensure kids can take home just the right amount.
And don’t forget to add a sign to let kiddos know they are welcome to dig right in!
