The key to building a good candy buffet is mixing the right colors and having a variety of different types of candy. White candy goes well with most other colors, so it could be wise to mix some white color candy into your buffet to add a little variety. White rock candy sticks or wedding mints work well for this. But white isn't the only color you can mix. Green and pink can go well together, as well as black and gold. One popular method of mixing candies is to layer different colors of Sixlets or chocolate lentils in the same container, creating a candy stripes effect.
Choose different types of candy in the same color as well. If you're planning on a blue candy buffet, you might get blue gummy bears, powder blue Sixlets, and blue candy sticks. The mix of shapes and textures is part of the fun presentation of a candy display. The most important thing, as always, is that you pick the candy that you and your guests will enjoy looking at and eating.
