    Just a thought, how about a toothbrush in the goodie bag – as a parent, I hate to think about cavities from all that candy!
    It is a cute idea but we also need to instill good teeth and limit the amount of sugar.
    I am so not a party pooper, just hate trips to the dentist.

  2. Congratulations on what looks like a fabulous party! Your talents continue to amaze a faithful reader…..

  3. What a creative and great idea! I would love to go to a Candyland Birthday party as an adult!

    I loved the whole thing! I hope, when I do try to emulate you, I hope I can do as good a job (or even remotely close) as your original “Candyland” party.

  6. This is absolutely fabulous. I love it all.

    I’ve just posted a link to it on my blog.

    Although I LOVE them, I simply can’t afford the lunchbox favors (@ $36/ a piece!) Does anyone know of something more afforable but just as cute?!

    Hi Carrie –

    I know – those lunchboxes were more like full-on “gifts” than “party favors!”

    Here are a few other suggestoins for you:

    *These are “candy themed” lunchboxes. They’re not personalized, but they’re a lot less expensive at $12.99 each

    *Candy themed pencil cases – even more affordable at $1.99 each. You could fill them with candy or colored pencils and maybe bundle each one with a big, colorful lollipop.
    *Mini Gumball Machines – $3 each. Fill them with gumballs & attach a gift tag to personalize :)

    Good luck!

    hello jenn. s so i was wondering where you had bought the jars filled with candy. i am also trying to plan a party for my daughter and would like to know where you bought them. thanks a lot!

  14. jenn s. says:

    Hi Jasmine –
    I purchased all of the jars at HomeGoods – the prices are great there!(usually range between $9 & $20 ea, depending on the size)

    If you don’t have one near you, Michaels is another great place to look – or you can buy them online at too. Here’s direct link to that section:

    Good luck!

    I saw somewhere three invitations that the public voted on for Max’s birthday. Where can I find those inviations? I was also interested in the banner used at his party. Please help!

    Hi Chastity –
    You can see the 3 invitation designs here:
    If you’re interested in ordering any of them you can contact me through this page for more details:

    And you can order the custom 6-ft banner at a company called “Emagine Digital”. The cost is $75. Here’s their info: Just ask for the “Candyland Banner”. :)
