What type of containers to use for the candy buffet ?

Hi Ladies 
  
     I am having trouble picking containers for guests to use to take home items from the candy buffet, everything I find looks cheesy.  Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

  • I went to a wedding a couple of weeks ago.  They had small bags (color cordinated with wedding).....google small bags for candy buffet.  Good luck!

    We used Chinese take-out boxes.   We had purple and brown ones that we alternated on the display.  We added a sticker that had our names and "thank you" on them.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated. 
  • i got partybags on clearane at walmart the one i got are red  beause our colors are red and black, they are sort of like a see through red. they were .75 for 20 bags!
    I also made stickers to go on them that said "thank you for making our day sweet" and i put our names and the date!
  • i have dark purp organza bags
  • I used plain white Chinese takeout boxes that I decorated myself.


  • We are going to have small cellophane bags because they are cheap and will get throw out anyways.  We are also going to use our custom stamp (see below) to add personalization.
     

  • <div>There are SO many on etsy for fairly cheap!  You can actually personalize them to your colors and say your names and the wedding date, I think these are cute!</div><div>
