Candy Land Party

When Jacq and I decided on a Candy Land Party for her Birthday I was so excited. Her very first *Friend* Party. She was so excited. And I was so excited. How fun is that? CANDY LAND? I am so over Star Wars. . .Pokemon. . . Spongebob. . .Etc. . . but Candy Land I was all over. And then life happened. I landed in the hospital and was about to cancel the party that never got started. Aunt Lyss said, "No Way!" and came to the rescue. She took all my ideas and turned our house into a 4-year old play land.

The Invites
In the Candy land game there are little stops along the way. So for each stop we . . . "we" meaning I thought of an idea and Alyssa made the station amazing. I documented everything in pictures. So yes this is a VERY VERY long post.

*WELCOME. . .with Candy land colorings. . .
*A peppermint relay for the peppermint forest.
*Gumdrop pass. Guess how many gumdrops. . .
We heard everything from 11 to 61.
And the Birthday Girl happen to be the winner with 41. There were 50 gum drops.
Good thing she is good at sharing. Gum drops for everyone.

*Licorice Forest. Eat the licorice as fast as you can . . . .with . . . with. . .no hands. I loved this one. The kids were seriously so cute.
*Peanut Acres. Who doesn't like a bean bag toss? Super fun! How cute are these bean bags? My mom made them. The more color the better.
I think the kids could have done this station for hours.*Chocolate Swap.
No peeking. Gloppy hid one chocolate for every little friend. mummmmm. . . . .
*Lolipop Lanes.
Can those bowling pins get any cuter? To think those were once Soda bottles.
Another WINNER of a game. The friends could have played all day.
*Snow Flake Lake.
Fruit loop necklaces.
And. . .the Lady that made it all happen. We love you Aunt Lyss.*Candy Castle.
Love this idea. It came from here. Jacq has been eye*ing these cupcakes since June. "I need these cupcakes for my Birthday Party."And my mom whipped these right up. Thanks mom! And the birthday girl loved them.
And so did some friends.
And. . . a crazy brother who made a crazy smiley face.
Present time.
Lastly, we sent our friends home with colorful Candy Land party bags. YAY for fun parties. Awesome Helpers. Super friends. And a big girl turning four.

Waterfall taps are a stylish way to make a statement in your bathroom, and are becoming increasingly popular and very affordable. Water cascades from an open spout creating a stunning waterfall effect that makes washing, shaving and cleaning your teeth something to look forward to.

My daughter is set on a Candy Land 5th birthday party so I've been researching various games and decorations and I have to say, that your party takes the cake in terms of feasibility compared to some of the sites I've seen!!! The games look fun and easy enough to prepare without going overboard. Her birthday isn't til December so we're going to do a "gingerbread house decorating station" at Grandma Nutt's station which I think will tie in nicely but otherwise, I love all of your ideas and will put them to use. I guess your little peanut is about 12 years old now. Time sure does fly!!! <3
