I am having a candy buffet, and everyone seems super excited about it. The problem is, I have had trouble finding candy containers for a good price that are small enough. I don’t want to spend $1,000 on candy, and I know sometimes when you give people a big container, their automatic inclination is to just fill it full (I’m thinking especially about children here.) I don’t have to worry about the first ten or so people cleaning the whole thing out.
Did you have a candy buffet? If so, where did you get your bags/boxes? Links and pictures are especially appreciated!

Have you tried seeing what candywarehouse.com or candy.com have? I haven’t fully looked into it yet but I am having a candy bar as well and plan to buy my candy from candywarehouse.com
By the way nice date! We are almost date twins 🙂

Have you looked at Oriental Trading Company? That is where I am planning on buying mine.

@Aadams4: Yay almost date twin! We are coming down to the wire!
I was more thinking of the container that people will scoop the candy into, but I actually hadn’t heard of these sites. I still need to buy the candy as well, so I appreciate the suggestions!

We bought our containers at Oriental Trading! They were JUST the right size!

@BrandNewBride: Were they this size:
Or did you get the bigger ones? I have no idea what the right size would be, honestly.

@EffieTrinket: I don’t know how fancy you want, but I just bought the small brown paper bags (it was a country wedding, so it worked). I ordered them from a grocery supply company. I got about 500 for $10 or something. Then I just bought a cute stamp to stamp the bags.
They weren’t super small bags, and I only bought about $200-$300 worth of candy for 150 people and we had some leftover.

@EffieTrinket: They don’t sell the one I got any more, but this one is the same size:
Only ours had a ribbon instead of the metal holder. It’s actually pretty small–2.5″X2.5″! So the name is deceptive–It’s nowhere NEAR the size of an actual take out box!
