The great thing about a CandyLand party is that there are many party supplies available for purchase. CandyLand themed plates, cups, napkins, invitations and more are available which makes pulling your theme together pretty simple.
Lollipop Centerpiece - You'll need a flower pot, round craft foam, Elmers glue and lollipops. Put a line of glue inside the pot about a 1/2 inch down. Stick the round craft foam in the pot so that it sticks to the glue. Allow to dry. Once the foam is securely in the pot stick the lollipops in the craft foam starting from the top of the pot building towards the top of the foam as you go.
Candy Buffet - Fill glass jars and vases (of varying shapes and sizes) with candy such as M&Ms, Skittles and peppermints. Candy canes are also perfect for a CandyLand party.
We love a creative homemade invitation whenever possible. When making your own invitations it must be done well. If your homemade invitation looks like a school project then it's best to purchase invitations. There are so many cute invitations available for purchase which makes this is a good option. But, for CandyLand party a creative homemade invitation is easy.
CandyLand Invitation - Purchase the large swirl lollipops and attach the invitation to the stick using ribbon. Since the lollipops are colorful and fun you can get away with printing a simple invitation. Put a hole in the corner of the invitation and attach it to the lollipop using ribbon.
