@lauramwall:  I’m thinking, Dollar Tree, and Michaels (go armed with coupons). Maybe even Ikea for containers.  Oh, and Costco for candy!

it depends on your colour scheme…..

for instance mine is red and black….I therefore atocked up on candy right after valentines day at 75% – 80% off:):)  If your colours are pastel etc. good to shop after easter,,,,  You get what I mean…lol…

In terms of vases and such…Value village, Goodwill, garage sales since the weather is getting warmer…. you got lots of time and tons of opportunities to stock up…

hope that helped:)

I did our candy buffet.  I chose not to follow a color scheme but instead just picked the candy we liked or that is popular.  After a lot of shopping around I found that ounce for ounce, Walmart had the best prices on candy.  (The bagged candy)  We were married Thanksgiving weekend, so I picked up a bunch of candy after Halloween for extremely low prices (I bought a bunch of bags of fun size skittles and then opened all of the little packages to put in the glass bowl I had.


My containers came from various places such as Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Ikea and I borrowed a lot of containers from anyone that had something that would work.  be creative with your containers.  For example, I used the large martini glasses and put them in a glass bowl creating a two tier candy bowl with Starburst in the bottom and Skittles on top.
