We love candy, we love parties – and the new line of Dylan’s Candy Bar stationery and gifts by Lifeguard Press is the perfect reason to celebrate! Join us in any of our stores this Saturday for our candy-inspired party at Swoozie’s from 11:00am – 1:00pm. Click here to RSVP, or email RSVP@Swoozies.com!
To celebrate, we asked the team at Lifeguard Press and Dylan’s Candy Bar to share their favorite ways to party candy style …
CANDY COLORED DECORATIONS
One of our favorite things about candy is all of the color … it is so bright and yummy! Of course, decorate with candy! We love the idea of a candy topiary (like this one that Dylan Lauren made for Martha Stewart). And, we love the new paper lantern from Dylan’s Candy Bar’s collection! Add these, plus a room of colorful balloons (try Dylan’s favorite way of tying them with 1 ½” satin ribbon) will make the party feel like you are a kid again! (Hint :: No helium? Tie them upside down to make a “balloon chandelier!”)
Or, does your guest of honor have a favorite color? A monochromatic candy color palette can be very sophisticated! We love the idea of all of the decorations being every shade of orange!
What is a candy theme party without candy?!? Try stringing gumballs to make a party garland to capture the excitement. Add jelly beans to the bottom of your serving trays. And, using lollipops to create a “bouquet” for your centerpiece is a fun and creative way to bring your candy theme onto the table. And, don’t forget to share the candy! We love apothecary jars and vases filled with your favorite candy to create your own “candy bar.” Be sure to add scoops and bags so your guests can take the sweets home!
We admit it – we have a sweet tooth! You don’t have to just serve candy at your party. Definitely add items to your menu that are candy inspired … like sprinkled covered donuts, over-the-top cupcakes and bright pink cotton candy! And, we love a sweet cocktail to add to the celebration. Dylan loves cocktails that are candy inspired … and, of course, have a little piece of candy added as a garnish. Try these lemon-drop cocktails served at Dylan’s bridal shower!
