What is a Lolly Buffet?
A lolly buffet (also known as a candy bar, candy buffet, lolly bar or lolly table) is a collection of different sized and shaped glassware filled with anything sweet and colourful. It acts as a gorgeous decoration as well as a tasty indulgence. Lolly buffets can be used as a dessert, a snack station or as your bomboniere or thank you gift - or a combination of all three! Lolly buffets are extremely popular in the US and UK and are steadily becoming the latest addition to personal and corporate events here in Australia.
