I’m sure everyone is busy preparing their Thanksgiving dinners and cooking turkeys … I just wanted to take a moment to say Thank you!!!!!

There is much I have to be thankful for this year … family & friends for their wisdom, love and support, and my wonderful clients who allow me to use my passion and imagination to create invitations, decor and events for their special occasions!

Wishing you and your family many blessings, health and happiness this Thanksgiving!

As I drove my kids to school this morning, the man on the radio announced that there are only 28 shopping days left until Christmas!  Wow!  November flew by for me and I must say that I have only bought a few things – nowhere near finishing my shopping.  I am not a Black Friday shopper personally, and prefer to use the weekend for unpacking the Christmas decorations and making the house festive … BUT I do look for online deals!

{Real Parties} Super Sweet Candy Celebration

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

candy party

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.
