Top the candy bar with dripping caramel - August 29, 2013 by Admin

One of the best dessert bar ideas – a caramel apple bar. Fall is coming up and dozens of apples beauties are on the market.

Rustic pop corn with creative toppings is fun and country cute.


Other tasty tantalizers: the waffle bar, the cookie bar and why not drippy juicy French toasts?

And the displays we can create…so much sugary fun!

Vintage Wedding Candy Cart - July 13, 2013 by Admin

Vintage Wedding Candy Cart via Kara's Party Ideas #decorations #idea #chic ##bridal #shower (1)

This gorgeous VINTAGE WEDDING CANDY CART was submitted by Laura Christie of Miss Lolly’s Candy Cart.

This candy cart is so precious.  You could use ideas such as this for a wedding shower, vintage birthday party, or summer social.

My favorite Vintage party ideas and elements from this cute candy cart are:

  • The fun apothecary jars
  • The little white bird hanging heart 
  • The light color scheme
  • The green ribbon tied around the candy scoops
  • The floral canopy
  • and MORE!

This is what Laura said about planning the event-“This beautiful candy cart was set up for a vintage wedding display on Australia’s Gold Coast. It comprises a selection of sweet treats displayed in vintage apothecary jars housed in our handmade candy cart and topped off with our floral canopy.
The soft pink, yellow and pastel greens were the perfect combination in this countryside setting.”

Printable Candy Bar Wrappers “I’m Here” Baby Boy - March 6, 2012 by Admin

A month ago my son and daughter-in-law had a new baby boy and I wanted to tell the whole world! To help spread the word I made candy bar wrappers that had the baby's name, date he was born and how much he weighed.  It was fun passing out candy bars to friends and family. 

These would also be great as a baby shower party favor. This downloadable packet comes with four candy bar wrapper options, gift tags and candy tags.

Sweet Shoppe Candy Party - January 31, 2012 by Admin



I have a lot of exciting things to announce. The first being that Zurchers Party and Wedding Supplies contacted me a few months ago and hired me as their new in-store party designer. It’s been a lot of fun! I am now able to show you the first of many parties I’m styling for them. This SWEET SHOPPE CANDY PARTY was a blast to design and execute. I just love all the colors…and SUGAR!

Most everything you see throughout this party is from Zurchers, including the adorable apothecary jars. Often, the right candy can be so hard to find, but with the huge selection at Zurchers you don’t have to search and search through hundreds of online shops.
My favorite things about this party– the rock candy cake, the ric rac / paper and candy necklace bunting, the milk bottles, the bubble gum machine drink dispenser {took the top off my gumball machine and replaced it with a beverage dispenser}, the various lollipops, the pink sixlets, the paper straws, the funky ribbon on the candy scoops and favor pails, the chocolate dipped candy sticks and the chevron bags.
A huge thank you to my party design assistant, Brynne. I couldn’t do any of this without the help of you and Amber!
