It was fun working with this mom because she is a graphic designer by profession. She created the invite and we used it as inspiration for the rest of the project. Kayla's mother also designed signs that were used on beverages and a dessert table banner. When guests entered the party, they were greeted by candy-wrapped columns and a “Welcome to Kayla’s Candy Land” banner with a peppermint candy walkway. The dessert table featured cupcakes by Passion for Pastry and assorted candies that the kids could fill in their own personal tins. Each candy tin had a custom stickers, as well as the candy tins and centerpieces, which all complimented the original invite design. Outside, there were hanging cellophane-wrapped lanterns that resembled life-sized hard candies. Life-sized lollipops lined the pool, re-creating the Lollipop Acres atmosphere from the original board game. Princess Frostine’s Fruit Punch and Lolly’s Lemonade was served. Rainbow swirl lollipops with Kayla’s Candy Land custom stickers were displayed on the high-tops and main outdoor dining table. In addition to the candy tins, each child received a Candy Land board game as a party favor.
Candy Land Board Game
Transformation of a classic board game into a modern birthday party.
We used an array of colors inspired by various candies. We used pink linens with white chiavari chairs. The candy-swirl plates were purchased from Target. Cupcakes were designed by Passion for Pastry. Candy was purchased from The Bulk Candy Store.
My favorite item was the cupcakes designed by Passion for Pastry. They were so colorful and caught the attention of all the guests. The cupcakes were the main centerpiece of the dessert table.
This theme is easy because you can base anything around the candy theme. I.e. glass jar centerpieces, hanging candy, all different kinds of candy can be used for a dessert table, etc.
Nice job!! I bet you all had a lot of fun! My girl is only 4 months now, and I can’t wait to do projects with her…
