Wednesday's Parties {Sierra and Shaun's Candy Party}

Here's the candy party I did for Sierra and Shaun back in Oct. 09. I'm sharing it on the CSI project so I wanted to repost it! :) To see a ton of fabulous parties head over to CSIVisit thecsiproject.com

Well here it is...one of the most anticipated parties I've done.
I say anticipated because I'VE been wanting to do a candy themed party for a long time and now I finally got to! :)
I planned it to be for just my niece and last minute we included another relative and that was fun too.
So here are the pictures.
{lots of them}

The candy buffet table ~

Favor bags ~
The centerpieces ~ {One for Sierra turning 3 and one for Shaun turning 2}
{Notice the lollipops? Those are from this post. They were easy to make, but I did not let the kids have them because the centers were jawbreakers instead of gumballs and I was afraid of them choking. I THOUGHT they were gumballs when I was putting my quarters in the little machines, but I was wrong! :) }

The table ~{I just purchased some fabric at Joanns and ran a crepe paper runner down the center. Sprinkled it with a bit of confetti and set some paper lanterns made into candies in the center.}

With her Birthday cake...a M & M with the letter S for Sierra ~

This picture shows the flag banner~
{not the best picture, I know. These were just made from coordinating paper and stapled to ribbon.}
Making candy necklaces ~
Playing lollipop grove {Sierra LOVED this game}~Possibly a little cheating going on here. :)The Birthday kids
Filling up the candy bags ~Possibly the happiest Birthday Girl ever
considering all she wanted for her Birthday was candy! :)

Touching Story

This cool story is about a young {30 year old :) } girl who wanted to share blessings and happiness with 30 other lucky people in this crazy world.
It all started when she was a child and she found a balloon with a note attached of someone wishing for a pen pal.
In celebration of her 30th birthday she attached hand written notes to 30 helium balloons and let them go...waiting for responses from the people who will find them.
What a great story about sharing and giving of one's time get to know others.
