Need to sweeten up your next party? Candy themed parties are all the rage right now from kids ages 4 – 94! Candy themes or accents can be used for almost any occasion including kids’ birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, sweet 16 parties, weddings, bridal showers or baby showers. And the best part? Everybody loves candy and everyone loves parties…put them together and you’ve got a sugary mix that can’t be beat!
When planning a candy party you have a few options. If you choose a color or few colors for your theme, you can find candy accents and decorations in those colors which are entirely possible nowadays with the vast array of different types of candy available. If you’re having a character themed party like Dora, Sponge Bob, Barbie or Hello Kitty you’re also in luck because many of these character creators have candy lines as well. If creating your own candy theme seems a little bit much, many areas have local candy stores that host candy parties for children. The kids can learn how candy is made, take a tour of the factory and then choose their own candy combination at the end! Like old fashioned candy? You could even create a candy theme of the decades featuring old favorites like wax bottles, mary janes, neccos or more. If someone at the party is diabetic, remember that many of our favorite candies also come in a sugar-free option too!
Candy parties are relatively inexpensive and are great for those of us on a budget. Candy can typically be purchased at a discounted price when bought in bulk…remember to do your research on candy prices before choosing one particular store to buy from.
When purchasing invitations for your candy party keep your theme, holiday or color scheme in mind.
