DIY Candy Land Themed 6th Birthday Party

Today is my youngest child’s birthday. Happy Birthday my sweet child! Being that I love bright colours and she loves Candy, we collectively agreed on a Candy Land Themed 6th Birthday Party for her this past weekend. I didn’t go as crazy as I wanted to in terms of decorating and candy because it was a really hot day, and I didn’t want to have to deal with 12 kids high on candy so I kept it very limited. I also wanted to keep the costs down so I did alot of DIY projects in order to make it more special as well as on a budget. I think in total we only spent just over $125 on her party which was in my opinion pretty good.

For the invitations I purchased them from Etsy HERE for $13.22 I was able to customize what I wanted to say and I received my final copy in less than 12 hours. The owner was a pleasure to deal with she answered all of my questions and made any correction that needed to be made really quick. My daughter loves to wear Tutu’s so I decided to make one myself using colours from the Candy Land theme. I also purchased the tulle to make her Tutu from Etsy HERE and I paid $19.08 for it. I didn’t know how much I would need since it was my first time making a Tutu so I ended up running out of Tulle and I had to purchase 4 Rolls from a local store in my neighborhood which came up to just over $20

For the Candy Land themed decor I made life size Lollipops using PVC pipes, coloured cellophane, and Foam board for the circles. Of all the projects I did, I enjoyed this process the most mainly because it was a project that my hubby and I worked on. Once I was finished making the Lollipops we placed them in the ground like stakes, so when guests arrived that was the first things that they saw. The Candy table was pretty easy to make, I shopped for the Candy in bulk at the Bulk Barn. I purchased the Candy jars at Value Village and neighborhood Garage sales. For the cake It was also homemade by myself and decorated by hand as well. That was the longest process in getting ready for the party because I wanted her cake to be perfect. I had a few hiccups along the way decorating her cake but overall it turned out amazing for my first larger cake that I have made and decorated.

I didn’t do a loot bag for the kids during the party the each got to decorate two cookies (not pictured) and there was enough candy left that each child was able to take candy home with them to enjoy. I also had customized stickers made as a thank you for attending the party which sealed each bag.

Overall I really enjoyed the planning and decorating process of the party it was alot of fun. I did run out of time so I was unable to do some of the things I had envisioned but next year I know to allot more time to making it even more special.

    Candy Land is an awesome theme! The colors alone will brighten up any party. The dessert spread looks absolutely mouthwatering. Well, at the least for the kid in me.
