This adorable DYLAN’S CANDY BAR THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Lisa Costin of A Charming Fête.
What a darling party! I especially love the the cute candy garland banner; it’s so sweet and fun! I also love the lollipops and candy cane decorations made out of tissue paper and ribbons. This party is full of great ideas that would be perfect for a birthday party or bridal or baby shower.
The Dylan’s Candy Bar party ideas and elements that I like best from this first birthday celebration are:
- The cute Dylan’s Candy Bar cake
- The darling laffy taffy sugar cookies
- The lollipop and candy cane table decorations
- The cute candy garland banner
- The candy dot strips used as table decorations
- and MORE!
This is what Lisa said about styling/planning the party- “This super-adorable candy-inspired 1st birthday (with a bit of a modern edge) was called “Gavin’s Candy Bar” as the amazing cake was an inspiration from Dylan’s Candy Bar in NYC. We handmade giant tissue paper swirl lollipops, giant “barber pole hard candy sticks” made using washi tape, hand-painted kraft paper candy/sprinkle runners and created bright, fun floral centerpieces with candy coated vessels. We created a colorful candy table with custom candy shaped sugar cookies. We used giant 36” paddle balloons as the backdrop. Gavin’s smash cake was a simple yet delicious sprinkle covered confection. We also brought in a balloon twister and face painter as a fun activity for the kids.”
