May seem weird, but I am looking for anyone who has used PLASTIC contianers for their Candy Bar/Buffet….
We are having our VR in the same park where we got Married, no glass containers allowed.
I have already started saving the 2 liter bottles (I cut them in 3/4 … basically the top off)
1 liter bottles (again, cutting tops off)
I just need clear plastic containers. So you see how I am using this, with the clear 2 liter and 1 liter and gallon jugs… I thinka 5 gallonm would be too much,. what would I fill that with? LOL thats expensive and my head wants to explode when I think about it.
Of course these will be decorated to look as lovely as possible, which, I do not think will be hard.
Does anyone else have any other ideas?
just thought i’d throw it out there, thanks!

The first thing I would do is check places like Sam’s, Costco, WalMart etc. Often they sell candy in large plastic containers. I have seen some that look like cookie jars.
Here’s a site that sells plastic candy containers:
set of three square containers from here:
cookie jar style containers from here:
also check out Ikea- they always have lots of plastic items
Last but not least, never forget the dollar store.

You’re using bottles with the tops cut off? Have any pictures of something like it? I’ve never seen anything like that before.

These are pretty reasonably priced plastic containers for a buffett.
The one thing to think about is that some candies will not work the best in a plastic container. I tried a plastic one with sour patch kids and the little sour crystals clung to the sides and it didn’t look so good.

@Ronneykay: The dollar tree has some cute plastic bowls that are decorative and perfect for this! They have plastic vases too !
