here are some pictures our 8 candy jars and candy bags with twistie ties...

DETAILS Candy Buffet photo 1 DETAILS Candy Buffet photo 2

our candies will be: 1. Lemonheads, 2. Passion Fruit salt water taffy, 3. Peppermint (safeway special, wrapped in yellow tissue), 4. Combo of dove's chocolate (blue foil) & hershey's Bliss chocolate (blue foil), 5. Yellow Rock Candy on a stick, 6. Hi-chew (japanese fruity chewy candy from taiwan), 7. Mele chocolates (toffee covered mac nuts covered with chocolate, from Hawaii), 8. Pineapple candy (from Hawaii).

this is the DIY candy wrapping posted originally by jamiesue on PW (http://www.i-do-it-yourself.com/2009/05/wrap-idea-tissue-ribbon-makeovers/). except i'll be securing the sides with the twistie ties you see above (since i have 1000!!!! of them).

in all, i'll have about 5lbs of each type = 40 lbs of candy!

the calculation per person = 0.25 lbs x 150 guests = 37.5 lbs...should be enuf to for everyone!

Lemonheads, Rock candy and Salt Water Taffy ordered from www.candydirect.com - flat shipping fee or free shipping if order > $75.00; which was easily done.

i'm thinking about a staggered setup like this w/ DIY candy labels:DETAILS Candy Buffet photo 4  DETAILS Candy Buffet photo 5

can't wait to see how it turns out!
