When our client came to us with an idea for this party, we took it and ran with it! She had been wanting to throw 2 of her girls a joined-party for about 3 years and we knew we had to make it perfect! What’s the logical thing to do? Turn her entire house into a giant candyland board, of course! Ok, so logical we aren’t. But we throw a darn good party and that’s all that matters, right?
Walking up the front walkway, you are surrounded by giant lollipops! Imagine walking through this walkway as a small child!
Then, you get to the front door and “Mom” had the front door decorated SO cute before we got there that we just had to share!
Deco-mesh decor topped off with Gingerbread hangings & Gingerbread wreaths from Hobby Lobby!
If you think that stuff is cute, wait till you see the birthday girls! They are too cute for words! Oh, and the decorations were pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves! Once you walked through the house and into the patio area, your life sized candyland board awaits you! Gumdrop wreaths made by Two Belles framed the two doors that welcomed you to Candyland!
We laid down “game tiles” to make the kids feel like they were a part of the board. It was so cute to see them walk so carefully on the board! The multicolored game path led the guests through different Candyland “stations” and to “Candy Castle” (bounce house)
Now, Let’s tell you about the stations! We didn’t include all of the Candyland stations, but we included the most important ones! (No Peanut Trail for this party due to a peanut allergy!) The first station the path led you to was the Gingerbread Station.
The Gingerbread station was decorated with burlap and red with gingerbread and candy accents. The party goers were able to decorate their own gingerbread ornament at this station. There were also gingerbread suckers and gingerbread cookies on this station for them to enjoy while they were “crafting”.
A close up of the “Gingerbread Trees” station. FYI: The gingerbread on the right does NOT have 4 arms. That’s a female gingerbread. Took us a second to figure that one out. (And by “us”, I mean, Olivia!) Next station: Lollipop & Gumdrop!
Welcome to Lollipop Woods! The dum dum topiary was made by Two Belles.
The party goers were able to color their own “Princess Lolli” coloring sheet while they waited for their face to be painted!
Lollipop decor was plentiful!
Two Belles even wanted to get in on the face painting action!
Lollipop face paintings! The sweetie in the center is one of the birthday girls. Her friend (far right) shows off her coloring skills!
Next stop: Gumdrop Mountains!
The gumdrop mountains were right next to lollipop woods! Party goers were able to color the gumdrop character and enjoy some gumdrops while they waited to get their face painted. Next stop on the board: Peppermint Forest!
At Peppermint Forest, guests were able to decorate their own sugar cookies! Baked by yours truly! See the peppermint tree? Apparently when you leave peppermints outside, they sweat all the red off. Who knew! So, now we have an “ombre” peppermint tree! It still works, right?
Next up: Our FAVORITE station- The Candy Buffet! Couldn’t you just DIE for the backdrop made by Two Belles?

Chocolate Swamp with fresh fruit and skewers for chocolate fondue! Yummy
We just love seeing the party goers enjoy the chocolate fountain! The picture to our right is just TOO adorable!
Since most kids don’t enjoy “licorice”, we decided to do “Pin The Moustache on Lord Licorice” as a game for the kids to enjoy! We printed and cut out different styles of moustaches for them and they had a blast with them! (See below!)
They’re so cute, even with moustaches!
After the Lord Licorice station, the path led to the “Candy Castle”! The kids had lots of fun and so did we!
What would a Candyland party be without the actual game for them to play?
This was some of the decor used leading up to Candy Castle! “Mom” colored each character!
So let’s take a step back inside and see the “cake” table and the amazing table skirt made by Two Belles & the Candyland themed cake decorated by “Mom”!
Tutu table skirt custom-made to match the party colors. Don’t forget, we can custom make you your own tutu table skirt! Just let us know the size and colors you would like! (email@example.com)
Precious themed plates and cutlery for the party!
The table skirt in its entirety. It was SO fabulous and got lots of compliments! How cute would this be in school colors for a tailgate party?
How cute does this look!! Check out the custom ice cream cones hanging from the light fixture! More on those below..
The custom-made cake by “Mom”. She did a FABULOUS job!!!
A wide shot of the candyland stations!
“Mom” didn’t want the kids to get cavities from allll the candy the kids ate, so they went home with a tootsie roll piggy bank, toothbrush & toothpaste! What a CUTE idea! We LOVE!
We hope you enjoyed our Candyland party as much as we did!
