Love is Sweet {Candy Buffet}

By now I'm sure you know that my niece
 got married a few weeks ago.

I hadn't planned on showing the candy buffet
my sisters & I put together,
 but my niece insisted that I blog about it, so here it is.

The wedding had a Fall theme,
so we chose candies in the colors of
orange, brown & yellow/gold.

My niece lives in Texas, so she didn't really have anything
to do with the buffet other than telling us that she wanted one.  lol

Needless to say, she was quite pleased when she saw it!

As you can imagine,
the guests really enjoyed it!

I thought I may as well show the wedding cake too.
The leaves & pumpkins were edible.
The leaves shimmered...they were gorgeous!

So there you have it. 
The candy buffet & the wedding cake.
Love is sweet!

I really appreciate your visit.
Have a wonderful day! 


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. Oh Gina, that is so beautiful with the Fall colors....very tempting, nice job!!! And the cake is amazing, love it all!!!

  2. Gina! Why wouldn't you want to blog about this? Such a gorgeous autumn candy display. And the cake is beautiful, too. A great time of year to be married, unless it is today and you live in the mid-Atlantic states on the East Coast.......praying for all (including me!) in Frankenstorm's path. xo

  3. WOW!!!!!

    That's awesome, Gina! Oh my word!

  5. This is incredibly beautiful, Gina! I love the fall theme and the cake is gorgeous!

    My daughter is getting married in May and she pinned a candy bar awhile ago. She found a zillion apothecary jars at Homegoods and even has a banner that says Love Is Sweet! I had never heard of this before and thought she might have been over her head in details, but now I can see how wonderful it is!

    Your niece must have been so delighted, you did a beautiful job!


  6. Good Evening Gina, I love the display of sweet goodies on the table, and the Autumn colours are beautiful. The idea of a Sweet (Candy) Buffet really hits home with me as I have a sweet tooth. The cake is beautiful aswell. It sounds as if you and your family had a wonderful time at the wedding. Your niece will be so pleased she has a lovely aunt like you to organise these things. Enjoy the rest of your day. Best Wishes Daphne

  7. Hi Gina- I am back from my blogging break. What a great looking candy buffet. Just darling...or should I say SWEET? Your niece's cake is just gogeous!!! It looks a lot like my daughter's wedding cake. She made all the leaves herself out of rolled fondant and then dropped them off at the cake place. Have a wonderful Sunday- xo Diana

    I'm certain that the guest enjoyed both the candy, and the presentation.

  33. You would think I'd had enough candy with Halloween, but this candy buffet just looks too yummy. My daughter is getting married in Dec. and I'm hoarding good ideas. This one is going to the top of the hoard! It would be fun to adapt to a winter theme. That sign is sooo cute..."Love is Sweet", I'd have to agree.
