Archive for the ‘Candy Shoppe Birthday Party’ Category

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter, Miranda’s, 8th birthday!  Per her request we had a Candy Shoppe themed birthday party and boy was it ever a sweet party!!!


The table was set with all sorts of sweet treats…


…from salt water taffy, Tootsie Rolls, gum balls, M&M’s, cupcakes and more!



(The cupcakes were homemade Wacky Cake with homemade Peanut Butter Frosting and a Peppermint Cream Cheese frosting I found online.  Peanut Butter and Cream Cheese frosting use to be my two favorite frostings but this Peppermint frosting has joined the two of them.  May even be my very favorite!!!)

There was also a great deal of candy decor!


(I got the idea of the balloon suckers and lollipop topiary from Pinterest.)

Even the chandelier was given a little facelift, with a string of pink beads and some cheap candy Christmas ornaments, so that it looked like it belonged in a Candy Shoppe!


My favorite decoration was the old window I painted teal and set with burlap to pin pictures of my daughter in and then her name in flower and butter fly letters set in front of it!



The kids made candy necklaces with life savers…


(Yarn and lifesavers, easy!)

and played a GIANT game of Candy Land in which they were the game pieces!!!  They absolutely loved this!


(It was super easy to set up.  Just print out pictures of the Candy Land characters, ie Princess Frostine, The Gingerbread Man, King Candy, etc., and then lay them out with colored construction paper following the pattern of the game board!  Super huge hit!!!)

Everyone seemed to have a really good time, indulging in sweets, playing games and enjoying each other’s company, especially the birthday girl!!!


Happy 8th Birthday, Miranda!  I love you!
