CandyLand Party



CandyLand Party Ideas & Decorations

The great thing about a CandyLand party is that there are many CandyLand birthday party supplies available for purchase.  CandyLand themed plates, cups, napkins, invitations and more are available which makes pulling your theme together pretty simple. 

  • Use CandyLand primary colors which are red, orange, purple, green, yellow or blue.  These are all prominent colors you'll find in the CandyLand board game.
  • Be creative with candy, such as creating lollipop centerpieces. These are easy to make and super cute.
  • The lollipop centerpieces can double as party favors or party game gifts.  
  • A candy buffet is a must.  A candy buffet is perfect for a CandyLand party.

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.



More Decorating Ideas

  • On your tables scatter colorful candy such as Starbursts, Now-a-laters, dum dums any candy that is individually wrapped.
  • As you decorate keep the CandyLand game in mind. Set up separate party areas or tables and decorate each as different CandyLand destinations.  Such as the Peppermint Forest table or Gum Drop Mountain area.   
  • Decorating outside the party area is an opportunity to get your guests excited before they enter the party.  Pull out those candy cane lawn decorations from Christmas.  These make an excellent outdoor decoration for a Candy Land party.

Invitations

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.
