Candy carts are so expensive any ideas on doing one yourself
Hi Have a look on e-bay they have alternative ideas such as a Ferris wheel, you can buy them in white or you can paint them yourself to make it cheaper :)
I had a sweet table , I bought jars from Ikea and pound shop filled with a variety of sweets and decorated a table was just as effective and cost around £30 .
I did mine for about £80 and it fed 120 evening guests.. I bought from a wholesaler x
Buy some jars or bowls and the tongs and bags and then just buy sweets to go in them worjs out alot cheaper
We made our own. Used a big painted board, stair spindles and some candy striped fabric. Was really cute and very cheap. I placed it on the table top in the corner. Xx
Look for glass bowls at car boot sales/ charity shops and have a sweet table

I went to a wedding at Easter and instead of a Candy Cart they had a Candy Table. Everything was in Glass Jars with paper bags to put the sweets in at the start of the table. You could decorate it with Balloons and put a net frill round the table. Look in Home Bargains, they have different size glass jars and plastic scoops in there wedding section.
