A Bar or Bat Mitzvah should be a celebration to remember, and a cool candy buffet is sure to add some stand-out style to your big day. Friends will be so impressed by your excellent taste; relatives will chat with delight as they get giddy on sugar highs; even the funky DJ, who’s probably played at Bat Mitzvahs all across the world, will think to himself, "This is one awesome party."
But how will you make your candy buffet unforgettable? With all the delicious candy that your favorite website in the whole wide world, CandyWarehouse.com, has to offer, how will you pick and choose which treats make the final cut?
Here are some ideas to make your sweet buffet even sweeter:
1. Color counts.
Maybe you’re a lime green kind of guy. Or a young lady who only wears purple. If you’ve got a single-color preference, this is your time to let everyone know. Go over the top with an all-red arrangement of licorice and red M&Ms and crimson-wrapped chocolates. Throw your great-uncle out when he pulls a green Skittle from his pocket at your blue-only Bar Mitzvah candy buffet bash.
Less militant types might go for an appealing and versatile color candy theme, such as a rainbow assortment that catches the eye of every single guest from the moment they enter the room, or a cute array in the colors of a watermelon: pretty fuchsia, a medium green
, and chocolate brown.
2. Be a people pleaser
True, this party’s all about you. But let’s face it, you’ve got some weird eating habits. Remember the time you demanded that everyone try a piece of your vegan broccoli chocolate birthday cake? And then threw a fit when guests went for the ice cream instead? You lost a lot of friends that day, especially when you grabbed the ice cream and took off down the street.
Anyway, you’re twelve or thirteen now, so surely you’re mature enough to create a fair and crowd-pleasing assortment. A good candy buffet has something for everyone. A nice variety of chocolates; an ample serving of fruity delights; and a few tried-and-true classics. Texture is important, too: cover your bases with indulgences from all the categories- from crunchy, to chewy, to melt-in-your-mouth irresistible.
3. Don’t put the Pop Rocks next to the soda fountain.
4. Impress your Rabbi
Show off your Jewish pride with super-scrumptious Star of David lollipops, champagne jelly beans, dreidel candy tubes, and silver-wrapped chocolate stars. Try smores made from Hershey bars and matzah.
