Superb! Couldn't be happier with service!    posted 9/22/2014                                 

Thank you so much for the beautiful display of elegance you created for my wedding held on top of the Tribune Towers at The Crown! The guests as well as the reception coordinators/servers were in awe of the unique wedding atmosphere that was displayed. Even the Sales manger said she wants you to do her wedding, now that's impressive! The centerpieces on the highboys were just beautiful as well as the boxed chocolate cigars (which gave a classy touch). The candy bags favors that were hand decorated were just gorgeous. To top that all off the kids got to make their own candy bags, that made even my youngest guests full of joy and gave them a lasting memory. Thank you TJ's Candy Buffets!

 

JAW-DROPPING!    posted 5/18/2014
I've seen other candy buffets but the one at my daughter's shower by TJ's was so well done -- a customized and beautiful display that was just perfect. It was so fun to see everyone's face when they came in the room and saw it. No matter what age, everyone lit up when they saw the candy. I don't think anyone passed up the chance to take home a bag. My friend who hosted the shower loved how easy it was. I would highly recommend TJ's.

I highly recommend TJ's Candy buffet service to everyone who is looking for a creative style to add to any occasion. I hosted a spectacular housewarming party and wanted to incorporate something cute fun sweet creative and fun for kids too. After speaking with Tammy, she designed a fabulous "Home SWEET Home" theme for my party. She provided excellent customer service, always followed up, and very prompt. Set up & tear down was quick and done the next day. We were so thankful to have found this vendor (TJ Candy Buffet) who was willing to work around our schedule! The candy buffet was specially personalized to my theme and really was the centerpiece to our celebration of joy with family and friends. Definitely using TJ Candy Buffet again...in fact, I am currently planning my wedding and I already booked TJ candy buffet... theme picked out, designed and ready to go for the wedding! Of all the work and vendors incorporated in wedding planning, I must say TJ Candy Buffet was very pleasant and prompt to work with!!

I just want to say thank you so much for the fantastic Princess & the Frog candy buffet you created for my daughters special day! The boys & girls were blown away. The parents couldn't get over how special we made their kids feel at the party. The candy bags were the perfect party favor! One of the girls said and I quote "This is the BEST day ever!" Well that made my day. Thanks for making such sweet memories for all of us! P.S. We will be booking with TJ's Candy Buffets for our wedding reception for this September, can't wait to see what you create!

 

Awesome Candy Buffet!!    posted 5/14/2014 (The Knot.com)
Using TJ's candy buffet at my son's wedding was the best thing we did. It's been five years and that's still what everyone talks about. The display was awesome and the candy was a perfect fit, we did some 70's and 80's retro candy and everyone just loved it!
Our Daughter's wedding is coming up next year and she can't wait to start planning her buffet with Tammy from TJ's.

 

Candy Buffet    posted 5/13/2014
If you are looking to add something fun to your wedding event, TJs Candy Buffets is the way to go! I wanted to do something unique for my guests at my wedding shower and my friend referred me to Tammy. She is wonderful to work with. She was open to my ideas but her vision blew me away! She personalized my candy buffet, with my theme of choice, and her artistic touch made it better than I could imagine. My guests loved all of the candy and everyone was able to make their own bag! Tammy has great attention to detail and passion that shows through her work! Highly recommended!

 

Perfect addition to the party!    posted 9/29/2014

I used this vendor in planning my twin boys Bnei Mitzvah. They were so easy to work with and had alot of amazing ideas. For the luncheon I was able to borrow the vendors movie theme memorabilia as the centerpieces and then had simple frames with pictures of my boys growing up. I had gotten so many compliments on the centerpieces. For the night time party the boys choose an I-phone theme. For each table the centerpieces had different apps and also a fake cell phone. I had to hide two centerpieces for my kids because they were all taken by the guest at the party. The biggest hit of the party was the candy bar. I had bought over 1,000 pieces of candy and Tammy put it together over 2 8X10 tables. She continued the I-phone theme and set it up so beautifully. The kids literally were grabbing the candy jars off the tables dumping them into their bags and running back for more. They literally picked the table clean. I recently ran into one of the mom's of a child who attended the party and she stated her son is still talking about the candy bar. Tammy was so easy to work with I am sorry that I do not have another party planned for her to do. With my next party she will be the first vendor I call to make sure she is available that day.

 

Guests were raving!     posted 11/18/2014

If you are having any type of event, you have to book TJ's Candy Buffets! My daughter did for her wedding and it was absolutely beautiful! All night long, our guests were raving about the selection of candy and how gorgeous the display was set up. Pictures just not do justice to seeing the actual table set up. The owner/operator Tammy, was sweet and professional and very talented. I look forward to booking her again for another event.

 

Made our vision come to life!    posted on The Knot

My husband and I were more than pleased with TJ's Candy Buffet! Our guests are still talking about how creative the layout was and how delicious and generous the candy bags were. They loved personalizing their favors. Tammy was great to work with! She truly listened to what we wanted and shared with us her ideas and how she would make our vision come to life. Her creativity is truly a gift! Our colors were black and gold and the decor went perfectly with our theme.

 

Highly recommend!    posted 11/20/2014 (The Knot)

I was a little hesitant on my daughter having a candy table at her wedding but after I saw it, I knew she made a great choice. TJ's Candy Buffets did an EXCELLENT job at her wedding this past weekend! The display table was absolutely beautiful and the selection of candy was wonderful. And the owner, Tammy was just a sweetheart! All night long, our guests were talking about it. I would highly recommend this business for any occasion.

 

Elegant yet fun at the same time!    posted 7/29/2015  (YELP)

TJ's Candy Buffets are amazing!  I was at a wedding and was very impressed with the beautiful wedding-themed candy buffet table, it was elegant yet fun at the same time.  

 

Staff went crazy for it!   

We recently had a luncheon party at our law office in downtown Chicago, and decided to do something fun for the birthday celebration.  The birthday boy is Irish, and loves Notre Dame and football, so Tammy took that idea and ran with it.  The result was a fabulous display of beautiful greens, a pot of gold candy coins and leprechaun hat, Notre Dame memorabilia, etc., and massive amounts of all of the best candies!  The attorneys and staff went crazy for it, and it was the star of the party!  Setup and breakdown were very quick, dealing with Tammy via mostly email was very easy, and I highly recommend this company for ANY party you wish to jazz up with something special and personalized just for you.  TJ's is amazing!

 

You won't regret it!     Rachel posted 3/7/2016

My review is long overdue... My husband and I used TJ's for our wedding back in October, and words cannot even begin to describe how amazing the all around experience was.  From the initial meeting to the night of the wedding - Tammy and her team exceeded my expectations with their customer service and product.  Tammy was so accommodating and her response time to all of my inquiries was insanely fast.  I always felt like I was the only bride/event she was catering to, even though I knew I was one of many.  The part that just blew everyone's mind was that Tammy and her team went way above and beyond the actual night of the wedding by setting up a HUGE candy buffet full of photos of us, decorations that went perfectly with our theme, and even threw in way more candy than we anticipated.  Everyone at our wedding was impressed by such a display and still talk about it to this day.  All of the little things went such a long way and I think that was possibly my favorite part of the entire evening.  Tammy also made sure to make me and my husband little bride and groom candy bags decked out with a tux and gown - They're currently on display in our china cabinet.  I can't thank TJ's enough!!  If you're looking for a company that can provide the utmost professional customer service, a fresh and beautiful product, and all at a GREAT price - Go with TJ's!  You won't regret it!

 

AMAZING JOB!     Megan K. posted 10/1/2015

I highly recommend using TJ's Candy Buffet for any occasion! We had Tammy set up all of the décor for our wedding reception and she did an AMAZING job! I was nervous about not being able to decorate the reception venue myself but Tammy did an awesome job and sent me updates throughout the day with pictures and made sure I loved the decorations before she left the venue. The room looked even better than what I had pictured in my head! She listened to my ideas and the style that I wanted my wedding to be and did everything exactly the way and I asked and even added a few extra  touches to make it look better! I am so happy with how the venue turned out - she made my dream wedding come to life!
