In honor of National Candy Day, I wanted to share a party I created for a Super Sweet girl on her 7th Birthday.
Who wants Candy?
The invitation was created in a fun poster style layout with bright colors and fun design elements and catch phrases.
I bought lots … and lots of the outdoor bounce balls found at Dollar Tree, Five Below and similar stores in bright colors of turquoise, lime green and hot pink and wrapped them in cello wrap to ‘transform’ them into giant hard candy decor. Sugar filled vases served as anchors to the faux lollipop centerpieces.
Activities included ‘Guess how many jelly beans are in the vase,’ ‘Build your own gumdrop house (or creature),’ and a fun round of hot potato with a giant piece of candy. In addition to the candy buffet, guests took home a gumball machine, an assortment of bracelets and candy flavored lip glosses – and a toothbrush!
As the candy buffet was the focal point of the party, I made a statement backdrop of “dots” which also coordinated with the birthday girl’s outfit. An assortment of apothecary jars and containers housed an assortment of candies; due to the warmer weather and in keeping with the bright colors of the party, we opted against chocolate treats. Guests were given bags and filled them with their favorite candies.
It was truly a Super Sweet 7th Birthday Celebration!
