Candyland Themed *BABY* Shower

Hi Smile  I don't really post here but I hope to get some ideas from you wonderful, creative ladies!

I am having a Candyland themed *BABY* shower this summer and really want to go all out!  (well, within reason Stick out tongue)

I plan on decorating to recreate the trail, having different colorful tablecloths, different colored paper good, a candy buffet, an ice cream buffet and decorate with large candy pieces like this.

I am looking for whatever input you guys have though!  

I definitely need some help with my candy/ice cream buffet. I want to recreate the board game; how does this sound

          o Gingerbread plum trees = ?
          o Peppermint Forest = chocolate covered pretzels to look like candycanes
          o Gumdrop Mountains: cupcake tower with gumdrops on each cupcake
          o Licorice Castle =?
          o Peanut Brittle House = ?
          o Lollipop woods - lollipop toparies
          o Molasses Swamp = chocolate fondue?
          o Princess Frostine/King Candy & Candy Castle = Ice cream Bar (different ice creams and mix-ins)

Should I add anything else.  I plan on having treat boxes so people can take stuff home since I won't be doing favors.  I am also trying to keep it a little different and not so practical.  Who really wants to eat a candy cane in June, ya know?

TIA!

Re: Candyland Themed *BABY* Shower

  • This is an interesting idea for a bridal shower. It's sort of making my teeth hurt with sweetness!

    For the peppermint forest- why not peppermint something? 

    Instead of peanut brittle, what about a chinese something salad with peanuts- for a non candy option for food

  • are you having real food too, or just candy items to eat?

  • Some of your ideas sound too difficult to take home in treat boxes.  I would get different shapes of glass containers and stock the containers with the actual candy mentioned - for instance licorice, but not worry about the castle part.  I would have:

    -Assorted lollipops

    -Gumdrops

    -Twizzler nibbs

    -Ginger candy or ginerbread cookies

    -Molasses cookies or candies

    -Peanut brittle

    -Assorted types of peppermind candies

    -Several types of chocolate candies (although not mentioned in the game, they go with the theme and people like it - M&Ms, kisses, etc.)

    I agree with this and would maybe have some sort of drawings/cardboard cut outs to represen the game.

  • Oh man, I have total baby brain.. I meant to say BABY shower.  This is for my baby shower.

     Wow.  I need help, lol.

    Yes there will be regular real food as well. I wanted to do something to recreate the game and incorporate it into a candy buffet with treat boxes instead of favors. I like the idea of doing candies in jars !!
