Chocolate Buffet

It’s not a secret!  I LOVE chocolate.  I can do without candies, gummies, sour keys…..but chocolate, I LOVE!!  For my staggette many years ago…too many to mention, we went to the Chocoholic Bar at Sutton Hotel in Vancouver.  That’s right…a buffet of nothing but chocolate.  My daughter loves chocolate just as much as I do and recently I decided to put together my own version of a chocoholic bar for her.

I wanted everything to be tasty and decadent…a feast of chocolate.  But I also wanted everything to look pretty.  My jumping off point was some square paper plates that I found at Superstore.  That set that colour palette…tiffany blue, apple green and sunny yellow!  I found candies and flowers keeping with the theme!

Cupcakes, cake pops and jellybeans matched the color scheme.

Next was the menu…besides the color-coordinated candy corn, gummy frogs and berries, M & M’s and jellybeans…we needed chocolate!!

Candy corn!


Color-coordinating the treats with the decor just makes everything more appealing!
