Candy Land Party

Candy Land was always my favorite game to play as a little girl, and I can remember thinking how much I'd love to actually be able to walk into such a tasty world. Full of fun colors and sweet treats, this timeless board game translates into a terrific party theme for an truly imaginative birthday.

Candy Land Party

  • Send an adorable invitation featuring candy illustrations -- FineStationery.com
  • Wrap balloons or paper lanterns in cellophane to look like hard candy and hang them from the ceiling as decor -- Hostess with the Mostess
  • Adorn the birthday cake with plenty of sweets including these swirly suckers -- Butterfly Cakes
  • Paint the different segments of your sidewalk with temporary paint to mimic the look of the game board -- Brand Flakes for Breakfast
  • Place a lovely lollipop with nametag at each plate as an edible place card -- The Celebration Shoppe
  • Arrange a vibrant candy buffet in a variety of colors, shapes and tastes -- Hostess with the Mostess

As I was searching for candy land imagery I stumbled across Hostess with the Mostess's take on this party theme-- her ideas (some of which I mention above) are all so lovely-- be sure to check out her post for some great inspiration!
