I’ve just been picking up whatever I find on sale.  I found to vase-y type things for like  bucks each at TJ Maxx and then I think I got a square short-ish one somewhere?  But I do want some Ap. Jars too but don’t wanna spend too much!

FYI I saw some amazing large glass vases/jars at Marshalls today for only $6.00 each. TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods are all owned by the same company I believe.  So, if you need apothecary type jars I would search there.  🙂

Here are some videos that have been very helpful to me.

Here is a list of what I am getting for 50 to 60 guests:

  • 80ct chocolate candy sticks
  • 80ct root beer candy sticks
  • 5lbs cherry cola salt water taffy
  • 2pkgs – 24ct sesame seed snaps
  • 5lbs Mary Janes candy
  • 5lbs milk chocolate covered oreos
  • 5lbs milk chocolate pecan caramel Patties

I am also including a picture of the jars I will be using sans the candy.

Are you guys decorating your candy vessels, or leaving them simple and sweet? I can’t decide if I wanna put ribbon around or not?

I will be putting a satin ribbon with a lace ribbon over it around each one and I will be attaching labels stating what each type of candy is. I am also going to have a different color overlay or tablecloth under the display. I haven’t quite decided exactly how to do everything yet, but I will be prettying it up.
