I want this candy buffet so bad that I can smell it but is it worth $200? I’m struggling with purchasing it. It’s so awesome and beautiful and once I put my apple red and white touches on it….it would really be pretty! So do you think I should or not?

You can buy glass jars for way cheaper. Are you particularly attached to *those* jars? Because terrarium jars come in all shapes and sizes, and we got them for $8 apiece at Michaels.

It doesn’t have to be these but I do like the idea of the pedestals tho.

Just buy cheaper glass jars and fill them with your favorite treats. There is no reason to spend that much on plain jars! I’m agreeing with amandopolis!

it’s VERY pretty but it does seem like $200 is a lot. I assume that does not include the candy itself?
I wonder if you couldn’t also find pedestals somewhere for less expensive?

I love these pedestals! Where did you find them?
I would totally use them over and over again (I like cookies especially around holidays) so I MIGHT consider it but if its not in your budget, you can get a similar look with a little more research!

Why don’t you just go to Target and buy glass cylinders to fill candy up with?

Personally, I love them and would get them! Think of how pretty they will look in your house after the wedding! I think they’re a great investment … that’s how I would justify it!

We got 8 jars and 2 big glass bowls at IKEA for $40.

I think w/ the pedestals, you need to be mindful of kids (eek! What it one were to break?) If there aren’t any kids, and you really want them, then go for it. I went the other route and purchased glass terrariums in varying heights, and sizes and they look great and cost me around $10-12/piece.
Keep in mind the candy itself will cost fortune, so you want to save some cash-ola for that portion too.

It’s true. Candy is expensive. I’m tried using M&M’s to fill some of the tins I will be using as wedding favors and they are costing me a FORTUNE. I think I may switch to larger chocolate candy instead of pink colored M&M’s and get a large quantity of brown colored candy at Costco.

I know…I know….but its so cute and I totally want it. I’m not use to not getting what I want. I probably could definitely sell it to another bride after my wedding.

I am doing a candy buffet and found jars very similar to the ones in your pictures in Home Goods for $5-7 a jar (got 7 of them) and plan to spend about 25 bucks on candy…and my aunt is making some signs…for a grand total of approx. $75…

I totally agree with everyone that if you are up for the search, you could find apothecary jars like those at either Michaels, Jo-Anns, HomeGoods, TJ Maxx or Marshalls for a fraction of the cost! Plus, don’t forget your Michaels and Jo-Ann’s coupons!

*drool* they are gorgeous. How are you going to use these pedestals after the wedding? If you sell them, you probably won’t even get half of what you paid. What I would do is save 1 or 2 and sell the rest. This way you can use them in your wedding, use them at home to display your goodies & still get some money back for them! Score.
Again, they are so pretty. Great taste 🙂 Where did you find them!?
Edit: I found them here & for only $165! You save $35 already! W00t
