Over the last few years, we have seen guests loving the idea of different kinds of bars. Not the alcoholic kind, but the munchy kind. We have seen candy bars, trail mix bars, and popcorn bars. This is an easy way for the hosts to share something they enjoy with their guests. These bars work for weddings, gender reveal parties, birthday parties, company parties, movie nights and many other events! Tip: Most of these tables will work for different types of parties. Just change the colors of the candy, popcorn, and trail mix ingredients to match the colors of your event!
The Candy Bar is easily the most known and appreciated! The candy bar is versatile. It can hit the spot for many guests as it offers such treats as lollipops, peanut butter cups, sour candy, sugar sticks, chocolate, taffy, gumballs. The options are limitless!
Candy Bar Example: Vintage Wedding
The candy table can even make an appearance at a vintage wedding! This is a fun dessert option for the reception. The flowers, candles, and glass jars allow the candy to enhance the table.
The Crimson Bride:
Candy Bar Example: Gender Reveal Party
The gender reveal party is a newer event but has rapidly caught momentum. This is when expecting parents reveal the gender of their baby to their friends and family and sometimes find out for themselves. We love this idea of having both pink and blue represented on the candy table.
The Popcorn Bar is an oldy but goody! Growing up, I loved having popcorn bars as a part of my movie nights. Popcorn is loved by so many people! It can be a great dessert option for the health conscious guests, but can also be buttered up for the guests that prefer their dessert to taste like dessert.
Popcorn Bar Example: Company Party
This bar is for the company party. Often times, the long list of guests at a company party can come with a long list of accommodations. Popcorn is a great option for those with allergies because they can eat it with just a little bit of salt, a little bit of butter, or neither. We love the look of this cart! It can be used both indoor and outdoor.

Popcorn Bar Example: Backyard Movie Night
This popcorn bar is great for a backyard movie night. The pillows add a nice touch to make your guests feel welcome to sit down and enjoy the movie. Make sure to have a refreshing beverage to go with this salty table!
The Trail Mix Bar is a great option for a more laid back party. This bar is newer but is loved by most guests! Just be considerate of your guests with nut allergies! Similar to the popcorn bar, your guests can make this as healthy or unhealthy as they want. Guests typically put the trail mix in little baggies or little jars. This allows for them to get trail mix and mingle without having to worry about spilling their treat.
Trail Mix Bar Example: Camping Birthday Party
A camping party is great for all ages. Your guests will have fun putting together their munch as they are getting ready to camp for the night! Use brown bags for your guests to put their trail mix in!
