Creating a Patriotic Candy Buffet for Your Labor Day Party

The summer is almost over and Labor Day will be here before you know it. Are you throwing a big Labor Day party and barbecue bash to celebrate the end of another successful summer? Are you having one last hurrah with family and friends before your kids go back to school?

“Everybody loves getting together any time of the year. But this is particularly true at the end of the summer when you are throwing a Labor Day party signaling the fun and excitement of the summer has come to an end. Proving that there truly is a card for every occasion, you can get Labor Day cards here to send out to those people who cannot join in on the festivities. This doesn’t mean that the final party of the summer has to be a dour experience. On the contrary, when you create a Labor Day party candy buffet, everyone will walk away from this incredible event with a smile on their face and the song in their heart.”

But how do you create a Labor Day party candy buffet? We’ll show you how to create the best patriotic candy buffet that money can buy. And we’ll show you how to do it cheaply while making it a fun experience for the whole family.

Sound good? Then let’s get to it.

Creating a Candy Buffet

Step 1: Choosing the Colors

Figuring out the best candy colors will come as no surprise to any red-blooded American. Choose candy made of America’s most popular and favorite colors: red, white, and blue!

The first step – choosing your candy colors – is often a lot more difficult when it comes to other candy buffets. Since this buffet is specifically being designed for a Labor Day party, it only makes sense to choose our nation’s most patriotic colors. Anything else would be a slight against America.

Step 2: Choosing the Candy

At this point in the Labor Day candy buffet creation process, it would probably be a good idea to get the kids involved. You see, your kids are going to go gaga when you tell them that they get to pick all of the amazing candy that will fill your patriotic candy buffet.

To make this easy on you and everyone else involved, we recommend visiting to pick the candy for your display. For starters, they sell inexpensive bulk candy that you can easily afford. But truthfully, we recommend this way of choosing candy because you can sit the kids down in front of the computer and let them pick their favorites based on the pictures online.

If you attempt this in a local candy shop, you’ll have to deal with screaming children losing their minds because they cannot contain themselves around all of that candy. Why put yourself in such an insane situation? The easier way is to let your kids choose their favorite candies in front of the computer. Plus, you can then order it online and have it delivered right to your door. This will save you a trip and make life a little bit easier when planning this big event.

Step 3: Building Your Buffet

We’ve finally gotten to the fun part. Now you and your children can build your beautiful patriotic buffet. Remember, always use clear bowls and dishes made of glass or plastic. This lets everyone clearly see the beautiful colors and exquisite candy choices.


Do you see how easy that was? Creating a patriotic candy buffet is simple when you follow our step-by-step process. Try it this year for your end of summer Labor Day bash!
