Candy Bar: a make or break situation

I never even wanted a candy bar. Really, I didn't. If I was even going to consider it, I wanted big, mis-matched apothecary jars to display the goodies.

Considering the cheapest ones I could find were $20 or upward each, I figured why even bother. I got very close to purchasing a few pieces from Save-on-crafts.com. This web site is a gem for the DIY bride. The deals are insane. If you haven't already, check out the specials link. The products are always changing and you'll eventually find a great deal on things you can use. For example, they recently featured 24" Eiffel tower vases for $8 each!

Then, I was on the hunt for some Christmas ornaments a few weeks back and ended up at Marshall's. When I realized how many cool knickknacks they had, I hit the glass aisle. There were so many beautiful apothecary jars, all under $10. No, they weren't the highest quality glass, but they had so many variations of shapes and sizes. I ended up with these three, which I filled with ornaments for a holiday centerpiece. Marshall's also has tons of really great candle holders, vases and glass pieces that would look great as part of a mix-and-match motif. Now I'm on the hunt for purple satin ribbon and the perfect candy.

Hi! My FI and I are going to have a candy bar, too. We're trying to see eye-to-eye in terms of the look of the bar. He wants candy store style containers, plain cylinders. I love the look of apothecary jars, but they can get pretty pricey. I've been researching all over the web in Ebay stores and Sav-on-crafts, but had never really though about Marshalls. Thanks so much for the info! I'll have to make a visit to the one near me. What we have decided on is the packaging of the guests candy treats.
