Kids love to live in fantasy. It is part of their growth and one of the reasons why they are much happier than the grow-ups! Birthdays are certainly one of those major occasions that every child is eagerly waiting for. It is the day when he is the hero of the day and is the center of attention of his parents, family members and friends. A Candy Land theme birthday party for kids can be a great way to celebrate this occasion where fantasy meets the real world.
Make the day truly fantastic
A candy land is an imaginary place where there are rivers of chocolates and trees grow toffees and candies instead of fruits. Which child wouldn’t love to go to this land? This is a birthday party theme which you can use a lot of creativity in. Right from sending creative invitations to decorations, menus, party favors and games, it can be a great way to make your child’s most important day most memorable as well.
Plan your way to the candy land
Just because it’s a kid’s party, don’t underestimate the amount of work you will need to do. In fact, kid’s birthday parties can be more challenging as you have to stay a lot more flexible and adaptive. You may need to buy or rent things such as costumes, a chocolate fountain, chocolate decorations, tables, chairs, etc. Make a list of everything right from the plates, glasses, napkins to decorative pieces that you will need for the party.
When sending invitations for a candy land party, be as imaginative as a child. Send a candy-bar along with an invitation card to hint the guests about the theme. Decorate the invitation envelops with candy land or rainbow stickers and some curling ribbons or confetti. Don’t forget to add some fun message in the invitation. Even a poetic invitation message can be a fun way to warm-up the guests for the fun ahead.
It’s a kid’s party and hence it has to be colorful. Lots of contrasting color-combinations is the way to go. Use a rainbow of colors to enliven the candy land. Decorate the floor of the room to resemble the candy-land board game. All the guests should be wearing candy land character costumes to suit the theme. Set up the tables with candy land decorations using houses, trees, woods, forests, etc. made of peanut brittles, candies, lollypops, peppermint, gingerbread, etc.
Pizzas, burgers, finger chips, etc. are favorite food items for any kid’s party. Add some more fun with decorating food items in creative ways. Using cookie cutter to shape sandwiches into different shapes, decorating cupcakes with candies, etc. will be a great way to make the food items more fun to eat. Offer various candy items like candy necklaces, candy apples, cotton candy, etc. Ice creams with toppings of cherries, fruits, nuts, candies, etc. will make a great dessert.
Party games and favors
Let the children use their creativity and imagination to play fun games. They can build delicious peanut brittle houses, build the tallest gumdrop mountain, or decorate gingerbread cookies. Some of the great ideas for party favors include candy rings, candy necklaces, candy crafts, candy or rainbow stickers, cookie cutters, etc.
