June is Candy Month,  in my book that’s a good enough reason to indulge in one of my favorite things.  For those lucking enough to have a birthday in June a candy themed party is a great idea, very apropos!

The only thing more fun than candy at a birthday party are the games of course, so combine the two and haul out the favorite childhood game for a fabulous Candy Land Party!

A Candy Land party can be for boys and girls of any age, even adults!  Party decor should be easy, lots of bright colors and lots of candy!

Turn your backyard into the board game!  The kids will have a blast being live game pieces!

This takes a lot of work and planning.  You can use plywood cut into rectangles and painted in the game’s colors.

A simpler game version would be to use felt squares, this would work well indoors.  I suppose painted cardboard would be a good alternative as long as it doesn’t rain.

Since you’ll be loading guests up with a ton of candy serve something a bit healthier for lunch, dinner, or tea.

These colorful fruit cups are a healthy addition to your menu.  You can also serve fresh salads, veggie trays, hummus dip with pita chips, and finger sandwiches to help balance out the sweets the kids will be chowing down.

Positive Med

For beverages I’d skip the soda and kool-aid and offer small bottles of water or jugs of infused water instead.  They really don’t need more sugar!

Partying with the Princesses

I love photo booths, they’re always fun.  Here’s an easy backdrop from Partying with the Princesses.

Cut the ends and the back off a cardboard box, cut out a hole for the face, and cover it with wrapping paper.  Glue on decorations and you’re done!
