When one of my best friends, Meredith, who I hail as the Queen of Sugary Goodness, suggested a candy themed party for our daughter's first birthday party, I listened! I did lots of online research, and I was most inspired by the Dylan's Candy Bar branding. I came up with an invitation design (very draft, as this is not my forte!) and sent it to my very talented friend, Monica, who made my wildest dreams become a reality with my favorite invitation I've ever sent out! I mean, it had candy belts in it - so many of which were consumed by my husband and 3 year old prior to getting them out of the door!
I DIYed a few of the party goodies - namely the candy stand with favor bags that my mom sewed and the planter with 'Watch Emi Grow' lollipops. The party was a labor of love, but we had a great time and left on a sugar high! I couldn't ask for me!
