{Real Parties} A Candy Shoppe Party

This week's Real Parties feature is the second party submission sent to me by Sara of The Homespun Hostess. Sara created A Candy Shoppe Party for her daughter's 2nd birthday party last year in honor of her daughter's love of lollipops. Once her daugther went to sleep the night before her party, Sara went to work transforming her dining room into an adorable Candy Shop (what a wonderful surprise to wake up to!). The final result is something that any child would LOVE!

Sara used inexpensive jars to display candy and add height to the candy table. She also covered Dollar Store popcorn boxes with coordinating cardstock and used them as cotton candy containers. Such a great idea! For the party, Sara ordered subs from a local sandwhich shop and wrapped them in colorful cellophane and tied with ribbon to look like candy. Love it!

I think that my favorite party details are the crepe paper backdrop and the mini gumball favors. To add color to her tan walls that backed the candy table, Sara taped bright pink and orange crepe paper streamers to the wall to create a beautiful stripped backdrop. For party favors, Sara found $1 gumball machines at Walmart (score!) and dressed them up with a personalized tag and some ribbon. They were a huge hit with the kids, as you can imagine.

Sara, once again you did a fabulous job. Thank you for sharing your daugther's party with Sheek Shindigs. To see more of Sara's creations and The Homespun Hostess, click here.
