My latest article – Holiday Candy Bar – is now available in Pink Magazine! You can read the full article in the latest issue but I’ll share all the photos with you here. These ideas work for any party – Christmas, New Year’s, birthday, wedding, etc. With the holiday season quickly approaching, I gave this party a bit of a New Year’s Eve look with my colour choices and decorations.
Holiday Candy Bar:
For this party I went with red & silver because they seem like festive colours! I used plain black foam boards for the back wall and various sizes of candy jars, flower vases and martini glasses for displaying the candy. I absolutely LOVE these glasses I found at Pier One. I don’t drink but I knew I’d find a use for them in my party displays.
For decorations, I tried to stick with the same colours as the candy by using Christmas decorations, artificial flowers, different sizes of candlesticks, and silver placemats.
Your local party store is a great place to shop for specialty candy in a variety of colours. The grocery store candy aisle is a great place too and probably more affordable than a specialty candy store.
Don’t forget small favour bags, boxes or tins for guests to fill with candy to either take home or enjoy at the party. I dressed these black paper bags up with stickers from the dollar store.
