Yesterday I introduced my new Candy Christmas Collection, and the full party was featured over on Double Fun Parties (thanks Jennifer!). Now I’m back to share some more candy-fulled party pictures of Sadie’s 4th birthday.
I had so much fun putting together this party for Sadie. It is just so girlie, candy kissed and brightly coloured, lollipop lovely!
A table filled with gum balls, salt water taffy, chocolate bars, candy buttons, chicken bones (no, not real chicken bones, the chocolate-filled cinnamon candy kind), gingerbread men, flavoured marshmallows, gum drops, spice drops, lollipops and the cutest little cake. A candy lover’s dream!
Caramilk and Hershey’s Holiday Collection mini’s were wrapped with chocolate bar wraps and placed on a platter lined in scrapbooking paper from the collection.
Gingerbread cookies from a local fine foods store were placed on another platter lined with my favorite scrapbooking paper from the printable collection.
Giant blue and green gumballs were used to anchor rock candy lollipops .
Vanilla marshmallows are one of the birthday girl’s favorite treats. The strawberry marshmallows (I picked them on my last trip stateside) were a lovely surprise for her since they aren’t readily available in Canada.
Hammond’s Lollipops were anchored by a mix of mini gingerbread men, red gum balls and mini candy canes.
Paper straws in classic glass bottles were decorated with the Candy Party Circles available in the Candy Christmas Collection.
Favor bags lined up at the side of the table were filled with sweet treats and candy shaped lip gloss.
The birthday cake was a triple layer chocolate-vanilla-chocolate frosted with a swiss meringue buttercream. The bottom of the cake was trimmed in pink gum balls, while the top was decorated with candy and a gingerbread house, set up to look like a candy version of the North Pole. Such a simple way to make a big statement for a birthday cake! The cake was made by me, which I don’t regularly do for client parties, but for friends and their little girls, I bake.
The dining table where the girls sat to eat was dressed with a bright candy themed table cloth, and each place setting was set with the candy colouring sheet and party hat available in the collection, markers and utensils.
I used the 2″ Candy Party Circles from the collection to to make napkin rings for the utensils by punching two small holes on both sides of the candy party circle. After wrapping the utensils in bright napkins, I wrapped a matching ribbon around the utensils, then threaded the ribbon through the holes in the party circle and pulled the ribbon tight around the utensils. Simple, but very candy cute for the place settings and the girls loved them!
One last look.
I hope you enjoyed Sadie’s 4th birthday party. The Candy Christmas Collection DIY Printable Party will be hitting my Etsy shop today! Come back later today for a full look at the collection.
