    Can you price out the difference between doing it yourself or hiring the company? My guess is doing it yourself would be cheaper. I’d go for it if you have the time.

    Do it yourself.  It will be cheaper, most likely.  I don’t know about renting stuff, but Home Goods, TJMaxx, Marshall’s, Michael’s, Christmas Tree Shop sell very inexpensive clear glass jars and bowls to use.  Also, IKEA, if you have one nearby.  

    Depending on what kind of candy, you can buy in bulk online, or use a warehouse club membership.

    Go to thrift stores too! I found some amazing deals on candy jars and other funky and fun jars!  I only paid a dollar or less per jar so if they get broken it really isn’t a  big deal!

    Go to local thrift stores and stock up on jars and other containers which are way less expensive than renting. They’re also cheaper than Ross/Marshalls, etc.

    I did a candy buffet for our wedding super cheap. It was less than $1/pp. I bought vases and containers at Savers, Michaels and Joanns, as well as recruiting family to help (one lent a punch bowl, trifle bowl, etc). You can save a ton of money by not being picky with candy colors – I bought all of our candy at BJ’s Wholesale Club!
