Hmm…

Wire baskets lined with brightly-colored paper?  Or clear plastic vessels?  Check out the Container Store’s web site for some ideas!

Sounds like your reception’s going to be beautiful!

Or you could look for some cool metal/tin jars and bowls of various shapes and sizes…

I like the galvanized metal bucket idea.  You can dress them up with satin or grosgrain ribbon around the top. It would be super cute!

I like the galvanized pot idea. Maybe painted flower pots? You should probably line everything with paper though, so the candy won’t get yucky.

 

ALso, have you asked the venue if they mean no glass for the candy bar specifically? Or is that just for glasses, plates etc?

Now that I tihnk of it though, I think I read somewhere that you shouldn’t put food or drinks directly in galvanized metal, so if you decide to use the buckets, line them with paper or something 🙂

I like the idea of clear plastic containers. You could also check out thrift stores for clear plastic bowls, vases, etc. to use!
