FAQ


Q:  Do you have a standard buffet?

A:  Every buffet is individually designed & created for each occasion & client.  Although we don't offer a standard package or buffet, all of our full service buffets include the lollies/chocolates, glass candy jars, labels, utensils, lolly boxes and flowers/props.  We can tailor a package to suit every budget & need.  Buffets can be designed in any theme or colour of your choosing -  there are no limits!!!  Additionally, we have many extras available to enhance your design, spoil your guests and make your special occasion unique & unforgettable.


Q:  How do you know how many lollies to provide?

A:  Our price is calculated based on your expected number of guests.  This will also determine the size of your buffet & how many lollies are included.  Although this is not set in stone, a guide to the number of jars / selections is:

  • 25-40 guests - 4-7 selections
  • 40-80 guests - 7-9 selections
  • 80-120 guests - 9-11 selections
  • 120+ guests - 13-15 selections

Q:  I don’t know my final number of guests?

A:  Final numbers for your event can be confirmed upon full payment and we will adjust the quote to suit.                                              


Q:  Do we choose our own lollies?

A:  Yes, all the sweet choices are yours!  We are happy to help, but ultimately it’s about what you want & like.  If there is something in particular you would like, please just request it.  Given enough time we can generally source anything!  We will have a chat to discuss your choices & table design approximately 6 weeks prior.


Q:  Who gets to keep leftover lollies?

A:  You do!  We will pack up any leftovers for you to take with you after the event or leave them at the venue for your collection.


Q:  I have my own table decorations. Can these be included in your design?

A:  Absolutely!  We are committed to designing a buffet that complements your theme & vision.  While we have a large range of decor items and are always looking to expand our collection, if you have a decoration you want incorporated, we are more than happy to oblige!


Q:  What items can I personalise?

A:  The most popular items are the lolly boxes or wrapped chocolate bars.  Labels can be personalised with your guests names and used in place of name cards.  They can have your event details, a logo or can be simply just to say 'Thank You'.  Specialty linens are also a common request.  Tablecloths, runners or skirting can really deliver the WOW factor, while our hand made bunting is a sweet addition for both kids & baby events.  The background is often just as important as the table setting.  A personalised banner or backdrop can help eliminate any unwanted distractions or create even more impact that screams 'Look at me!'


Q:  Do you set up the Lolly Buffet?

A:  Yes, we do all the hard work so you can be stress free & enjoy the sweet treats!  The buffet can last as long as you need and when you're done.....we'll come back & pack it all away, too.  We will liaise with you or your venue to organise convenient times.  We prefer at least 2 hours set up time to get your buffet looking deliciously.....dazzling!


Q:  My event is outdoors?

A:  Not a problem!  Although, we do need a completely level surface for our beautiful glass candy jars.


Q:  Who provides the table?

A:  The venue, us or you!  We have found that a standard 6ft trestle table (1.8m x 0.76m) is the most favourable size for a lolly buffet.  Of course, we are happy to work with any size, although, we do ask that you provide table measurements so we can plan accurately.  If the venue or you are unable to provide a table, we can certainly help.  We have 4, 6 & 8ft trestle tables available, as well as a variety of tablecloths & runners.


Q:  Do you hire items out?

A:  Yes, we do!  Everything we have is available to hire, depending of course, on availability.  Please read the DIY Hire page for more information.


Q:  What areas do you cover?

A:  Brisbane and surrounding areas.  For a travel fee of $70 we also service the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Ipswich & Toowoomba.


Q:  Do you require a deposit?

A:  Yes.  A deposit of $100 will secure your date and act as your bond.


Q:  What happens if there are breakages?

A:  Accidents happen.....that's what the bond is for!  Replacement value of broken items will be taken from your bond.  All items will be checked & the bond credited to your account within 7 days.  In the unfortunate event that the cost of breakages exceeds your bond, you will be notified as soon as possible and billed for the additional cost.


Q:  How do I book?

A:  Send us an enquiry on the contact page, call or email to request a quote.  Your booking is confirmed once your deposit has been received.
