Handcrafted Parties- Fair Day

Today’s handcrafted party feature was sent in by Anneliese who threw an incredibly adorable fair day party for two little girls who happen to share the same birthday. The party was filled with many lovely features including a very sweet candy bar!

You can find the tablecloth tutorial here, which would be great to adapt for your 4th of July celebrations.

My favorite feature was the fun party candy bar- created with extra large gumballs, kettle corn, chewy taffy and many more candied offerings. Anneliese has been so kind to share with us a tutorial for this party candy bar.

Party Candy Bar:

  • Buy candy to match the labels and set out in oversize mason jars, bowls or vases.
  • Print the labels onto card-stock, cut & attach with double sided tape, ribbon or twine.

Just a sampling of the 27 labels included in the download, enjoy mixing and using them to create your own party candy bar this summer. What a fun way to easily spruce up a kids birthday party or add a bit of sweet distraction to your next adult gathering.

    […] Using antique mason jars for just about anything wedding related is a fave of mine, but particularly when used for candy buffets. They can be found pretty cheaply and are one of those fabulous wedding items that can be used again in your home for many different things, or you can re-sell them on craigslist, ebay, etc. Blue mason jars are particularly popular and just as easy to find, or make yourself! Check out this ingenious tutorial from Bridal Buzz on how to make your own blue mason jars. Used as the candy buffet containers or the way for your guests to take home their sweet treats – it’s a win/win idea. simply kierste, the knot, a subtle revelry […]

    May I ask where you sourced these jars? They’re perfect for my event but I haven’t found anything similar!
