2. Apothecary glass jars not only store your candy, but they also add height and depth to your dessert table. We recommend getting glass jars in various heights and sizes, which will allow you to put in different sizes of candy and add even more pops of color! For parties with a lot of kids, you can also opt for plastic apothecary jars to prevent breakage.
