Create the perfect Candyland birthday party!

If you’re planning an upcoming birthday party, there is no better theme than Candyland. Now, the trick to creating the coolest Candyland-themed birthday party is to combine the power of candy with the power of clever decorating. Today we’re going to be giving you some tips on how you can create the sweetest Candyland birthday party ever!

Engage the senses!

Decorating and design hinge on all five of the senses, not just the visual. By creating a diverse landscape to engage with, your Candyland will come to life. For example, you can use candy buttons to line the tablecloth on your snack table. This will create a feature that is not only colorful, but edible and textured. If you add cookies or cake to your menu, you can count on those amazing baking aromas to float through the house.

Combine real candy with decorations made to look like candy. Place lollipops all around the area where you’ll be storing the gifts. Integrate larger lollipops made out of paper plates or Styrofoam to create an entire lollipop forest!

Candyland is all about color.

Candy necklaces can be placed around each plate to give them a pop of colorful fun. After all, Candyland is depicted as a highly colorful place – bursts of color are a must! You should also choose colorful drinks such as juice and punch to keep the colors flowing. Gummi candies come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and flavors. Utilize their diversity to make the perfect goodie bags for the guests to take home with them. For added flair, tie up the bags with string, then wrap one piece of strawberry licorice around the string for a sweet final look.
