The popularity of candy bars at parties have been increasing over the last few years. Melbourne dj hire first noticed candy bars just over 5 years ago at our jobs. From extravagant professional candy bar set ups to the DIY candy bars set up by the mums at the house parties, this blog post will give you tips on how to set up and design the best candy bar for your party.
Melbourne dj hire have seen a lot of professional candy bar companies and the benefits of booking it from a company is the convenience. You don’t have to go out and source jars, decorations and candy. However you do pay a price for it. The company comes out and sets up the candy bar with decorations, candy, jars, and even labels and thongs and serving spoons. Some companies even provide extra candy stored under the table for replenishing.
Our Melbourne DJs have also seen some great candy bars set up by family members. They collect jars and glass bowls and set up the candy bar on a seperate table to the food. Some of the candy bars are colour themed with all the candy coloured the same colour. It is as easy as going into Kmart or a candy store and buying all the candy in bags and topping the jars up. One mum even gave our Melbourne dj a great tip and said, she had been keeping her eye out on sales at Coles and Woolworths and whenever the snakes, marshmallows and chocolates would go on sale she would stock up. The $2 shops or the reject shop sell thongs and serving spoons for the jars and if you really want you can also put labels on the jars.
What is also important is to have some height to your candy display. Some of our clients place boxes under the table cloths to add different levels to the candy bar. Melbourne dj hire have also seen some clients wrap up boxes in wrapping paper and use them for extra height to their candy bar.
So here are a few tips for organising candy bars. We hope you have found it useful!
