Sweet Shoppe Party

Sugar and Spice and all things Nice...

Well, we just had another successful birthday party...this one had a candy theme:

I set up my kitchen counter to look like a candy boutique.

Here are the cupcakes...with a giant cupcake on top!

Mmmm lots of sweet things to eat.

For activities, the girls (looking very cute in their pjs) made bracelets with cupcake and ice cream charms, made their own custom lip gloss and decorated gingerbread men.

Here is Natalie and her gingerbread cookie.

Fresh out of the box...Natalie has a new doll to love.

Make a wish...

After watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the original version) it was time to go home...but not before filling up a sundae glass with candy. I found these pink breast cancer awareness edition m&ms and they were perfect!

It was a whirlwind of fun...now I think I'm going to crash!

Wow, what a fantastic idea. Great pictures too. You can tell everyone had such a great time. I'll have to keep the idea in mind.

Happy holidays!

Wow! this is so adorable! I have been having such a hard time finding ideas for a sweet shopped party for my 1 year old this summer. Thanks for including the wonderful photos - I'm so inspired. Do you have a photo of the invitation, by chance? Or would you be willing to at least share the wording you used?

wow, it looks like a great party, my older daughter, after seeing the photos, wants a pijama party wth the same theme for her birthday. can you tell me how did you made the top of the counter, the white and pink banner, if you can.

Wow, I didn't catch the last two questions in a very timely manner, but if anyone still wants to see the invitation I have it posted here:

Also, the pink and white border was just cut out of paper. I cut rectangles out and rounded the top using a bowl or plate as a guide. Once they were all cut out I tacked them up using removable foam tape, alternating pink and white.
