I got the idea of the invitation from pinterest. Two card stocks and i used publisher to do this invite. Ribbon and cake pop sticks were purchased from Walmart.
The invite says:
The address, time and date was at the back.
Here is the back card stock. Feel free to download it and use it.
I always like to do something in the entrance. So i made this sign and everyone thought it is really cute.
The stickers for the letters were purchased. Then i added my daughter's picture and created a lollipop. I played on words. Instead of "Welcome to Candyland". I did "Welcome to Anna land" , my daughter's nick name.
There were different colors of card stock all the way to the door and lollipops made of pool noodles.
I wanted little figurines from candyland to be on my tables but i couldn't find them and what i found was too expensive. So i decided to make them. I purchased Styrofoam balls from walmart, cut them in half and painted them different colors. Then I downloaded pictures of all the characters. Used paint-shop to print them, one regular and one like a mirror . Print, cut, hot glued them with a BBQ skewer in between.
What's around the tables is just a candyland banner.
I also added a small candy bar.
Those candy decorations were made of pool noodles and wrapped with tissue papers. Logos were printed, cut and glued.
I did a real candyland game used different colors of card stock. The dice was made of a box and used the same card stock , cut and glued on the box.
Those were made of also pool noodles from the dollar store, duct tape from Home Depot and the curve was secured with fishing pole. The circles were stickers taped on thick card board and cut. All were secured in the ground with BBQ skewers.
Also made of pool noodles, duck tape around it. Then hot glued it. The stick is a dowel from Home depot and i sprayed it white. Then i wrapped it with cellophane and put a bow.
The big ones are made of thick card board. The small ones are sand bucks and sprayed with silver glitter.
All signs are printed, glued on thick card board and cut.
Then they all got candyland tiaras and the boys got hats.
The next game was twister and i got it from Oriental Trading.
I always like to hire a character for my parties. The load is less on me and i get to enjoy fellowship as well.

I ordered the cake plain and i decorated it with candy. The lollipops are candles.
The party favors were purses, has tooth brush and before they left they filled the purse with more candy. For boys, it was candyland boxes.
