Claire's Candy Shoppe Party

Claire's Candy Shoppe Birthday Party was on Saturday.
She picked this theme out about 6 months ago.
The girl LOVES candy, so I wasn't surprised when she told me she wanted a Candy Party.
I made the invites early in the summer because I knew I wouldn't have much time once the baby arrived.
I love how they turned out.
{Now available in my Etsy shop!}

Walking up to our house, I made lollipops to line the walkway:
Because the party was at 2:30, I just had snacks.
Pretzels, Goldfish & Smartfood:
Veggies & Hummus:Fruit Kabobs:
The dessert table:

My mother in law makes the BEST cakes.
Claire wanted a gumball machine & she nailed it!
In the backyard, I had bunting around the pool:
I had a bounce house:
The kids needed to bounce all that sugar out!
The main focus of the party was the Candy Shoppe that I set up inside:

Favors (along with all that candy!) were toothbrushes!

Cake time!

It was such a fun party and I am so glad we got to celebrate Claire with our family & friends!
It was a sweet celebration, indeed!
