Candy Land Birthday Party Part Two

So, because I had so many great pictures to choose from, here is part two of yesterday’s Candy Land Party postYou can’t have a Candy Land party without candy and sweets, of course!  Jenny left no sweet tooth unturned as she had…

Colorful gumdrop cupcakes…

A homemade birthday cake… this cake was decked out with lollipops, candy canes, ice cream cones, starbursts for the track, gumdrops, kisses, and marshmallows.

A chocolate fountain table… this table was filled with a ton of yummy chocolate dipped goodness including pretzels, strawberries, Rice Krispie Treats, graham crackers, marshmallows, and licorice.


And a candy table that doubled as a favor table…she made treat bags handy for each guest to fill with their favorite candies.

The yard itself was transformed into a game board with the track they spent hours hand painting. The kids had a blast pretending to play the life sized board game.

What’s crazy is that I left out pictures of the bounce house and the Peppermint table filled with fresh fruit and snacks. Jenny got creative and used peppermint Christmas ornaments to decorate Peppermint Forest. Amazing job, Jenny! When’s the next one? Tee hee…

    1. Thank you! I let her know! She said: 3/8 plywood and 2×2 squares so you could get 8 squares out of one sheet of plywood. Also, yes they are zip ties. Send us pictures!
