Sweet Sources- What you need to know before you order

Image from Amy Atlas
Candy buffets are becoming more and more popular, but there’s only one down side: planning and paying for one can be costly. Apothecary jars usually run between $10- $30 dollars depending on where you purchase them. You can try Target, Michael's, Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Save on Crafts (I usually don't recommend buying vases on line because they break easily) and even Marshalls or TJ. Maxx if you get lucky. You need get at least 10 containers to fill up 6 foot table and purchase at least $150-200 dollars worth of bulk candy to fill them up. Remember some of them may look pretty and might match your theme color but that doesn't necessary mean they taste good so make sure you don't try anything too risky.

Making it one step easier for you, here’s a list of our favorite bulk candy vendors to shop and price compare to help you save the most money you can while still getting great quality sweets in the quantity you need.
