Using candy in your centerpieces plays off the theme, color schemes and occasion for your big day. Apothecary jars or vases filled with different candies add bright pops of color. Consider forming those candy pieces into shapes to match your theme! Remember, this doesn’t mean you have to forgo traditional centerpiece ideas. You can place fresh cut flowers in a glass jar filled with jelly beans, skittles, or even cereal of a similar hue. Or mix up the traditional floral arrangement idea with lollipop bouquets instead!

Candy cakes are a unique take on the classic party dessert. They’re also far more budget-friendly than the traditional baked version. For a fun DIY project, shape candy favorites into a cake structure, and decorate it with lollipops, ribbons, and candles. Using the occasion’s color schemes in the candy cake helps keep it cohesive. Or save yourself the time and contact a company such as Covered in Candy for this eyepopping dessert alternative. You can also have the best of both worlds by adding candy pieces to your traditional baked cake.

Candy Theme For those with a true sweet tooth, having a candy theme for your event is a fun way to showcase your love of candy. There are endless possibilities for featuring the candy theme in unique and classy ways. The guest of honor’s initials in candy, a candy-inspired logo and favors, and candy-shaped decorations are great opportunities to reflect the theme. Meanwhile, invitations with candy prints are a wonderful way to introduce guests to the party’s motif.
