I bought my containers at Joanns and Michaels; on sale and with coupons. For candy, the best prices; including shipping, that I found is at ACandyStore.

I bought vases at Michael’s & Hobby Lobby using coupons, and that was much cheaper than the traditional apothecary jars. We also got our sixlets at Hobby Lobby.

A couple vases came from TJMaxx and local thrift stores as well. 

For other candy, we went to local candy/gift stores rather than ordering online.  And I found scoops online at Scoops Scoops and we bought cheap ladles from local restuarant supply stores.

This was ours, we got some of the wooden plates from Goodwill (we used charger plates) and borrowed cake stands for cookies for others.  I made the cupcake tree myself, and we bought two apothecary jars for cookies, and one jar for candy.  They were on clearance at Wa-Mart.

I ordered some basic jars off of Amazon and then found some prettier more unique ones at Ross.  I think places like Ross, Marshalls, and TJ Maxx are really good places to find jars for cheap.

I got my jars at Hobby Lobby, watch out for sales because I got all of mine for half price.  I didn’t go through an online company for candies,I found candies at walmart and other local stores. I also found cookies at World Market. Good luck to you.

We bought our jars all over the place, but were able to find some cute ones at thrift stores and Target too. We got our candy online at acandystore.com
