{Sweet Customers} Ivy's Sweet Shoppe Party

Share To:

When Emily’s daughter, Ivy Belle was turning one, she knew she wanted it to be special. She fell in love with our  Lollipop Collection and turned the party into an outdoor candy inspired wonderland.

Emily decorated the trees with more than four dozen party coordinating honeycomb tissue balls and made table displays that looked like shopping totes. Even the music was candy inspired –  kids and their parents rocked out to “Lollipop”, “Sugar, Sugar” and “I Want Candy”.

The party was a hit with a face painter, a homemade ball pit,  an army of giant rainbow colored gingerbread men, a “Gumdrop Pass”, complete with sacks of gumdrops for the kids to discover, and of course a big candy display!

The kids took home jelly bean machine favors {what a cute idea!} and bags of their favorite treats from the candy bar.

Thanks for sharing your party Emily!  You did a fantastic job!

    So let me get this straight– We can order the printables and afterwards customize it ourselves? Or do we have to tell you what to say on them? Thanks.

      Angela – You can place your order with us and give us the information at the time you order. The files come to you in a pdf format so they are not editable and ready to print!

    What a wonderland at Ivy

    What a wonderland at Ivy’s birthday party. The tables had goodies and the yard was covered in just decor for adults and children to enjoy. It really filled you eyes with much joy! Emily can do my 60th birthday party.

    What a precious idea! This is such a fun theme for a kids party, very cute and creative. Great job!

  12. Angela says:

    Fabulous party! I would love to know more about the homemade ball pit. Emily, can you share details/photos of this?

    • Emily Clinton says:

      I used a two ring blow up pool and filled it colorful pit balls & beach balls. The Dads put a slide going down in to it at the end! The kids loved it! 😉
