Looking for a cute and unique birthday party idea for kids? This is for you! What a “sweet” way to celebrate a special birthday!
Bright, colorful, and fun! That’s the look and feel of the Sweet Candy Shoppe party theme. Think rainbow colors, accented with hot pink, lime green, neon yellow, lavender, turquoise, black and white. The Birthday Express Sweet Shoppe party supplies incorporates all these colors in their collection of brightly-colored rock candy sticks, multi-colored Whirly Pops, Gumball assortments, lollipops, and more. They’ve also got a fun, candy-themed personalized birthday banner that will really make a child’s special day sweet.
Other decorating ideas include: lining your walkway with fake lollipops, using construction or crepe paper to make candy-shaped wall decorations, and adding lots of colorful balloons all around the party zone. For inspiration, picture Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, Candy Land, or even the game app, Candy Crush.
Candy Shoppe Food/Drink – While most kids are convinced that they could survive on candy alone, it’s a good idea to have an array of healthier foods to balance out all the sugar (although, there will be plenty of sugar involved in a Candy Shoppe Party). Fun ideas include make-your-own-mini-pizzas or cooking up small-portion hamburgers, as well as having a veggie plate loaded with multicolored veggies and fruit (carrots, red and yellow bell peppers, green beans, purple cauliflower, strawberries, blueberries, etc.).
On the sweeter side, the options are almost endless! You could arrange a rainbow colored assortment of licorice sticks in cups on a table and have the guests bite off each end and use the licorice as straws! You could pre-frost cupcakes and then let the guests decorate them with everything from jelly beans and Pop Rocks Candy to M&M’s and sprinkles. And you can serve it all on Birthday Express-designed Candy Shoppe dinner plates!
Candy Shoppe Games and Favors – What’s a Candy Shoppe Party without a fun game of Candy Land? Birthday Express also has you covered with other enjoyable games, such as a Giant Cupcake Pinata and an Inflatable Cake Ring Toss Game. Perfect candy-themed favors include cupcake scented nail polish, candy necklaces, ice cream lip balm, and Candy Shoppe tattoos. And you could send each guest home with their very own Candy Shoppe Filled Party Favor Box that includes a candy sticker sheet, candy buttons, a glitter bracelet and more sweet treats!
And what better way to say “Thanks for being such a sweet friend,” than with Birthday Express’ Candy Shoppe Thank-You Notes.
