Candy Buffet Options

I know a candy buffet would be completely unnecessary, but my new favorite color is yellow and I have in my head this vision of candy filled jars (large and medium sized mason jars, maybe, even?) that I’m not sure I can shake. Although, my budget is waning, so I’m not sure I should be taking on any extra expenses. We haven’t lined up a cake yet (though, we want really really simple, white, plain, 3 tiered, so we should easily get one for $500 or less, right?) I love candy and I think that’s what makes this such a hard decision. Chocolate and candy are very reflective of me (and by adding in Garrett’s favorites despite his usual lacking in the sweets-craving it can reflect him too!). Maybe I can add in some home baked goods?

So, should I stick with all yellow, which limits my flavor options (lemon, banana, butterscotch, and a few jelly belly flavors, like buttered popcorn which I love!) or do I just pick candies I like, and decorate the jars? (sour patch kids, chocolate covered almonds, reeses pieces, truffles, meltaway mints, etc). Or alternate the yellows with the mixes? Your call.
