Candy Parade Birthday Party Details:
This is what Felicity shared about styling the party- “For Annabel’s 7th Birthday party I chose a candy parade theme as it was fun, simple and required minimal baking! Once again I could not have designed the party without the amazing talent of Gabriela from Nina Designs – Party Printables. Gabriela really did an incredible job, she is always so faithful to my ideas and requirements. For this party I really struggled with selecting the colour pallet as wanted to stay true to my minimalist style as well as staying away from some of the brash colours that are normally associated with candy theme parties.
Sweet and Treats
So with a non baking party in mind I had a crack at making some ‘candy bark’ I had seen on Instagram. For the candy bark I used sprinkles, cute pastel candies and popping candy. I was happy with the result and the children loved it! Continuing the non bake theme I recreated some ‘Candy Kabobs’ I had seen on one of my favourite blogs. Seriously what a genius idea, not only was it visually effective, it had a practical element in keeping the candy intake to a minimum. Rather than just slamming down a bowl of candy for unregulated consumption, having individual serves kept a sugar crash at bay! The cake was made by Rebecca from Sweetcrush. Rebecca did an amazing job on the cupcakes and cake!
Even though I tried to avoid flicking on the oven switch a “Little Paper Plate” party would not be the same without my fondant cookies. I enjoyed using a yellow fondant to decorate the bon bon cookies.
Dessert Table Backdrop
The dessert table was set against a backdrop of a cute lolly pop and bon bon characters dreamed up by yours truly and bought to life by Gabriela from Nina Designs. I wanted to keep the display simple with accent use of fluro pink. My favourite fluro pink style moment was the cute cupcake stand from Ruby Rabbit Party ware. I was really happy with how all the details turned out especially as they were all mostly last minute.
To ensure the pink items popped I kept the plates, paper ware and standard party details to a minimum. I served my cupcakes and popcorn in some gorgeous white baking cups. I hung gorgeous white honeycomb garlands to create a white on white effect. Also, I set up a Photo Booth using a streamer set. Gabriela from Nina Designs created some very cool props for the Photobooth. All the children had lots of fun! I have to say I love having a Photo booth at every party now. It is a great way to capture a lovely memento for each guest.”
