The Candy Buffet

Since it's only fair that we start off on the right foot, I figured I'd give you a little insight into why M.B. Blog has been so quiet over this past year...

The reason is this: The Candy Buffet.

Oh man. This Candy Buffet. It should've been one small aspect of my wedding, but unfortunately it took on a life of its own, surpassing every other portion of our wedding day.

It was an homage to the trick-or-treater in all of us...and since we're such spoOoOoOooOky friends, I wanted to share a few pics of my pride and joy:

These were our escort cards attached to chocolate pumpkin lollipops, this was a sneak preview of all of the candy to come...

This is a nice front view of the entire buffet, my aunt had made homemade chocolates, including a completely chocolate bride and groom, front and center, as a surprise to us

My LOVE dishes, filled with candy corn

A nice side view, I can't get enough orange in my life

The amazing Catherine from For Your Event Planning and NJ Candy Buffets, brought all of my candy buffet dreams to life, including spending probably a massive amount of time separating Reese's Pieces and M&Ms by color for me

Pumpkin jar!

These were my fave: Raspberry filled chocolate pumpkins wrapped in orange foils (made by my Aunt Wendy!)

Chocolate covered krispie treats with sugar leaves on top

Chocolate covered oreos with orange chocolate drizzle, and some with sugar pumpkins on top

Special thanks to  Catherine at For Your Event Planning and NJ Candy Buffets for working with me on this and making it the most spectacular, amazing candy buffet ever!
