Give a party sweet style with a candy theme. A charming candy theme fits right in with birthday bashes, wedding anniversary parties, and bridal and baby showers. Not only is a candy party theme in good taste, it will infuse the celebration space with vibrant colour and plenty of whimsy.

Candy Buffet Table

A candy buffet table offers a taste-tempting party space centrepiece. The treats will serve as decor as well as dessert or guest favours. Set up a long table and cover it with a cloth featuring a pastel candy colour, such as turquoise or pink. Fill a mixture of decorative clear glass jars and bowls with a variety of sweet treats such as lollipops, gumballs, jelly beans, gumdrops, foil-wrapped chocolates, candy-covered almonds, chocolate-covered pretzels, liquorice and sugared fruit slices. Place ice cream scoops around the buffet table and personalised favour bags by each guest's place setting. Guests can step up to the buffet and fill their bags with goodies.

Edible Favors

Send guests home with sweet remembrances of a candy-themed party. As another option, greet partygoers at the door with candy treats to welcome them to the bash. Place candy-filled mini gumball machines by guest's place settings as charming table decor. As a table centrepiece that doubles as favours, fill a large, shallow tray with cut-to-fit florist's foam and top it with vibrantly hued gumdrops or jelly beans. Create self-adhesive labels featuring each guest's name, and stick them to the front of large rainbow-hued lollipops. Insert the lollipops into the candy-covered foam and have the partygoers pick up their treats after the festivities.

Candy-Inspired Games

Delight kids or kids at heart with interactive games inspired by candy. Set up several card tables with Candy Land board games so guests can challenge each other during the celebration. Fill large, clear glass jars with candy such as wrapped gum pieces or mini candy bars, and have guests guess the correct amount for a prize. Send partygoers on a scavenger hunt for candy bars and bags filled with sweet treats. If you are hosting an outdoor party, suspend a candy-filled pinata from a tree branch and provide guests with a stick to take turns trying to break it open.
