Sweet Shoppe Party -- Candyland!

This party just screams "Happiness and FUN!" My friend, Kate Petronis is at it again with a wonderful party to share using the Amanda's Parties To Go SWEET SHOPPE PARTY PRINTABLES SET.  
You will love these sweet photos and can find out more about the details at the end of the post to help you host a party for your own little sweetie.

Kate tells us about her party....

We celebrated my sweet sweet Bailey's SWEET 6th birthday with a Candy Shoppe Celebration at All Around Gymnastics!  What a FUNNNNN party!!  Entertaining, colorful, happy and best of all...NOT AT MY HOUSE!!  lol  This is the FIRST party I have done outside of my home and I must say, it was nice.  Messy children eating chocolate cake....pssssh, no big deal for this mama!  White carpets were no where in site!

After all the gymnastics festivities were done we came into the party room to eat cake and do a little craft (decorate a frame).  I found fun straw cups at Party City and loved how colorful they were.  I wrapped some cellophane around them and VOILA, they became little candy cups. I also thought it would be fun to wrap up a toothbrush in every napkin/fork set to remind  the little ladies to take good care of those teeth after all this sweet fun!!  (Hopefully this helped me score a few brownie points with the mamas after all this sugar!)  

For party hats I made little dessert headbands (ice cream cones, cupcakes, and donuts).  The girls were given some popcorn to snack on while they crafted their frames...I used Amanda's Treat Box tutorial for the popcorn container.  Transforming dollar store treat boxes into totally cute matching containers.  LOVE this clever idea!  

Happy 6th birthday sweet Bailey girl. Mommy loves you more than you will ever know!
