A candy buffet this eye-catching isn't just guaranteed to give guests a sugar high—it also looks like it's floating on air. That's thanks to the see-through acrylic holders that put the spotlight on the treats themselves. We'll let you in on our sweet secret: The stands come from organizational and accessory display stores and are meant to hold makeup and jewelry, not cupcakes and candies. Pick up several to fill with treats that satisfy your palate—and palette: The translucent presentation needs color to pop!
