***Birthday - Birthday Supply Depot

I have three sons and one husband,  which equals four birthday parties I have to host within a years time.  That could be a good thing or a bad thing but for me it's a great thing because I love planning parties.  The truth be said I probably should of been a party planner because I have been hosting parties since I was just a young girl and I guess you could say I just have a knack for it.  This past week I just hosted my middle sons 3rd birthday party.  I wanted to do a fun theme that was somewhat unique so I thought Bubble Gum party, but my mom thought it was somewhat too plain of a theme.  I go to thinking,  why not go with a "Candy Land"  themed birthday party and incoporate the gumballs into it, perfect! 

The only problem was finding a store that sold the "Candy Landy" themed party supplies.  I tried visiting my local party store because it is very well know,  but surprisingly they did not stock the "Candy Land" themed party supplies.  After visiting one more party store,  I decided to do what I should have done in the first place,  search for it on the internet.  After visting numerous online party supply stores I thought I may be out of luck,  until my luck changed! The Birthday Supply Depot offers everything you need to decorate your "Candy Land" themed birthday party. 

When shopping on the Birthday Supply Depot,  you may choose to order a party package and then add items to it(if you choose to) or purchase your party supplies separately.  The Birthday Supply Depot generously provided me with a Deluxe pack to review at the party. 

Here's what I received in the Deluxe Candy Land Party Pack:
  • (1) Candy Land Mylar Balloon
  • (1) Centerpeice
  • (1) Confetti
  • (1) Plastic Purple Tablecover
  • (3) Curling Ribbons (Lime Green,  Yellow,  and Aqua Blue)
  • (3) Streamers (Yellow,  Orange & Aqua Blue)
  • (8) 9 OZ Cups
  • (8) Activity Placemats
  • (8) Dinner Plates
  • (8) Invitations
  • (8) Yellow Forks & Spoons
  • (16) Classic Neon Candles
  • (16) Napkins
In addition to the Deluxe Party Pack Birthday Supply Depot was also kind enough to let me select a couple other items to review.  Of course I chose the Candy Land Personalized Birthday Banner because what better way to personalize a birthday than with a banner!  I also selected two Candy Land Party Favor Boxes - one for the birthday boy and one to hand out as a prize. 

Since the Deluxe Cand Land Party Pack included just about all the decorations I needed for my party I did not have to do much further shopping for decorations except for a few ballooons and hanging decorations since I like to go all out for my parties.  I used the favor boxes and confetti to help decorate my table and make it look festive.  I also purchased a gumball machine and peppermint candies to add to the table decoration.   When it came time to eat I set each table setting with a placemat,  cup, plate,  napkin,  and platic ware.  I used a helium tank to fill up the Mylar "Candy Land" themed balloon for the birthday boy. 

I placed the  Candy Land Personalized Birthday Banner just above the goody table to make for a perfect setting and covered the table in a bright purple table cover that was included in the package.   Doing this really made the "Candy Land" theme come together with the candy buffet and goodies on the table.  Towards the end of the party we played a Candy Land game and the winner received one of the Candy Land Favor Boxes, the other Candy Land went to the birthday boy or course. 

Inside each Candy Land themed favor box you will find:
  • Candy Land Blowout
  • Candy Land Bounce Ball
  • Candy Land Sticker Sheet
  • 8 Jumbo Crayons
  • Pinwheel
  • Mini Activity Book
The favor box and contents required a tiny amount of assembly and was super easy to put together.  Birthday Supply Depot offers three different Candy Land themed party packages including Basic,  deluxe Pack, and Deluxe Pack & Favor Boxes. for your convenience.  They also offer an assortment of Candy Land themed items that you may want to purchase seperatly.  The Candyland Giant Wall Decals really caught my eye and I think they would make a great addition to any Candy Land themed party.  You may also want to purchase a set of Candy Land themed party hats because the packages does not include hats. 

Overall I was very impressed with Birthday Supply Depot and all the guests were too!

You can purchase a Candy Land Deluxe party pack from Birthday Supply Depot for $29.99.
You can purchase a personalized birthday party banner from Birthday Supply Depot for $15.99.
You can purchase a Favor Box that includes the favors for $4.79.
