A birthday party with a candy theme is a lot of fun, and it is tasty too. Kids love this birthday party theme, and adults find it easy to come up with decorations, food, games, and more. It is an affordable birthday party theme that offers countless possibilities. Consider the following ideas for a birthday party with a candy theme, and make it a fun time for all.
Giant Candy Decorations
When planning a birthday party with a candy theme, make giant inedible candy decorations using two foam bowls and colored cellophane. Connect the two foam bowls with the rims joined. Use masking tape or any other strong tape to secure them. Next, wrap the connected bowls with paper of your choice. Leave several inches of extra paper on both sides. Twist the ends to make these birthday party decorations look just like giant wrapped sweets, and secure them with clear thread or fishing line. Place these decorations on tables or hang them around the room. They make fantastic decorations for a birthday party with a candy theme, and they can even be filled with wrapped treats and small lightweight toys and given to guests as favors.
Make a Giant Cupcake with Candy Inside
Instead of baking or buying a traditional cake for a birthday party with a candy theme, bake a giant cupcake instead. Silicone cupcake pans are available in kitchen supply stores, in some discount stores, and online. The pans are designed to create a hollow area, and this space can be filled with various treats before assembling the giant cupcake. Frost the cooled cake, and top it with gumdrops, gummies, chocolate, or any other sweet treat of choice.
Play a Candy Toss Game
A birthday party with a candy theme calls for games with a candy theme. Use wrapped candies and bowls for a candy toss game. Line up the bowls, and use wrapped treats as game pieces. Have the kids take turns trying to toss the treats into each bowl. Whoever makes it the furthest wins the treats in all of the bowls. Be sure to give everyone the leftover playing pieces. Everyone should feel like a winner at a birthday party.
These are just a few of the treats, games, and activities for a birthday party with a candy theme. Consider having the kids decorate large cookies with various candies. Buy small treasure boxes for the kids to decorate, and fill the finished boxes with small wrapped candies. This birthday party theme offers countless options for creative food and activities. In any case, the birthday party is sure to be a sweet success.
