My mother was a thrifty gal in the 80s. She used unlikely items for my birthday party decor, including a lollipop holder made from a sunny yellow jello mold, inverted and poked with holes. How clever she was to know that a simple $2 display of pops would bring about celebrational charm. Pops, from lolli to brownie, have maintained a party staple. Let’s take a lick, I mean look, at some of the best pops PN readers are uploading to our Project Gallery.
There was no shortage of sugar and creativity at Nolan’s Birthday. Would you like marshmallow or Oreo?
Never underestimate the pizazz of a traditional swirly lollipop, like these from Meryn’s Pink Elepant Circus.
Go all out by coordinating with matching cake pops. Simple chocolate lines can amp up basic shaped treats. Like mom, this party planner had fun with the display. Sending in my RSVP to next year’s All Star Sports Birthday!
