My Candy Buffet Jar Collection | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

I’ve been collecting jars for our candy buffet… and I got all of these for under $10 each. All of them were from Carolina Pottery except the tall one with the lid, which I got for $9.99 at Home Goods! What a steal. I’m pretty excited about them, and they will be great to use as centerpieces or decorative accents in our home someday… unless I decide to sell them after the wedding! Another great place to look for glass jars or vessels is Goodwill or other thrift stores. Also consider asking your family or friends if they have anything that could be borrowed!

I think one of the things that makes candy buffets interesting is having vessels of different heights, shapes and sizes. It definitely adds interest to your display! What do you think of my collection thus far?

  1. Great finds. I love HomeGoods. My sister is doind a candy buffett and planning on getting the jars from there as well. The Container Store is also a great place to find the jars and the scoopers.

  2. Those are really neat. I love the huge brandy snifter looking one.

    Cute idea, I also was thinking of having a candy buffet at my wedding!

    Ever since my fiance gave me a gorgeous diamond engagement ring from www.idonowidont.com and he wrapped around a Valentine heart candy, we wanted to have the candy buffet as a cute way to remind everyone how we got engaged!

    Getting the jars from thrift stores is a great idea and I will also check out the ones you got from Carolina Potter, thanks!

  5. What great finds and great deals! Loved your comment on my post about planning from work by the way… and I agree… fine in moderation :-)

  6. i’ve never been to a homegoods (not really in north east ohio) but i hear its fab! great picks! i found some great apothecary jars right after christmas at kohl’s. so keep on a look out (if you have that store down there? :))

  7. I just scored some of those same jars for cheap too! I cant believe that people spend $35 + for them! Nuts.

    I’ve been collecting large jars for a candy bar for our wedding too. I recently got some from Hobby Lobby at 50% off — between $3-5 each. Just check their ads – I’ve seen the %50 off glass decor coupon a few times in the last few months.

    you know, you can collect even more by paying a visit to a local thrift store. I did, and most of them were under a dollar! I made a few visits and each time I found so many different varieties/shapes/sizes….
