A candyland theme is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth and a love of bright colours. Your venue can be transformed into a scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, with chocolate fountains, life-size sweets, a candy-themed cake and vibrantly coloured décor. Adults and children alike will love the fun element, and there’s no limit to what you can create with Dash of Sparkle’s help!
If you’re super organised, one of the first things you’ll consider is the invites. As much as you may be tempted to send out an invite via text or social media, rather make that your “save the date text” and then send out a formal invite to give the guests a little taste of what’s to come J. With such a mouth-watering theme, you can send out invites in the shape of sweets or cakes, written in colourful pen, or go one step further and send real sweets attached to the invite. You’ll be sure to impress your guests even before the event!
Once you know who you’re inviting, there’s the difficult task of choosing who will sit next to who. Not easy! But, you can avoid any seating mishaps by organising place cards for each table. They can match your invites, how about little jars filled with sweets and personalised with the guests’ names, which is great for carrying the candyland theme through each part of your event.
To accompany your place cards, themed tables are a great idea. With a candyland theme, the possibilities are endless. You can choose a few of your favourite sweets or chocolate and name each table. Once you know who’s sitting at Malteaser table, Dairy Milk table and Skittles table, you can choose show-stopping centrepieces! Each centrepiece can feature sweets, ribbons, bows or balloons to suit your taste. Or, you can have life-size lollypops in a variety of different colours.
Choosing a menu to complement all the other elements of your event is really important, especially the dessert! A great way to please everyone is to have a sweet station, where you can display a candyland-themed cake, mini cake pops, candy shaped biscuits and cute jars full of sweets. If you want to go all-out, you can have a chocolate fountain surrounded by bowls of marshmallows and fresh fruit for dipping.
No themed event would be complete without some over-the-top decoration. Why not have bright pink chair covers or an arch made of balloons? We can turn your ideas into reality, the bolder they are, the better! To complete the look of your venue, multi-coloured room lighting is a great choice, creating a relaxed atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. You can carry the lighting through to your DJ booth, either with chic LED lighting or a traditional disco ball.
Let us surprise you and your guests and create the picture-perfect Candy Land for an evening of awe and excitement as you celebrate your special event!
