Dreaming of a white candy Christmas

White Christmas Candy Bar Wow, it’s hot! And it’s almost Christmas. Summer. Heat. Shopping. Frenzy. Meltdown. Ah yes, we know what you’re going through. That is probably why cool tones are such attractive options for Christmas candy bars and parties. It explains why you might be…


A snowy white theme with red and green accents looks cool in the top picture, from a Christmas candy buffet by Candy Bar Sydney. But table decorations don’t have to be wintry. We have our own summery festive traditions Down Under. Combining beachy bleached white starfish, coral and shells with silver and white baubles in a glass bowl, such as this one by Tara Dennis, really suits our climate.

Beachy Christmas decorations

White looks calm and cool in a season where we bustle and sizzle. And white on white or white with splashes of colour look glamorous without trying hard. Setting the scene for a Christmas candy buffet can also be as simple as white candles in a bed of sugar or rock salt in a mason jar, or candles on a Rosanna cake stand with decorative berries.

Add a White Lace Metal Cake Stand for the all important Christmas cake and you’re half way there.
