Brides from Newport Beach to New York City are requesting candy stations at their engagement parties, showers & wedding receptions because they are budget friendly, a popular treat, can blend with any decorator’s color scheme and are available in wide variety of flavor options. In addition, dessert bars in general are growing in popularity from cookies & milk to marshmallow buffets & late night snack bars.” The source for this quote comes from:
