Hey party peeps!!! So excited to share with you an exclusive first look at the new collection of candy as a part of Target’s latest design partnership: “The Shops at Target”. The Shops at Target concept is SOOO COOL! They are partnering with 5 specialty shops around the country to bring some of their products to Target retail stores.
As an event planner and host of many personal parties, the partnership with The Candy Store is my FAVORITE! The Candy Store at Target collection was co-created by San Francisco’s candy boutique – The Candy Store and includes many speciality candy items usually found in boutique, specialty candy shops. The entire collection will be available in all Target retail stores beginning May 6th!
And…Target was gracious enough to give me AN EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK which I’d LOVE TO SHARE WITH ALL OF YOU! YEAH! I must say, when I first opened the box of all the Target goodies, I gasped with excitement at the swirl and domino-looking lollipops! Always on the lookout for eye candy to use in my Sweets Bars, I knew these would be PERFECT to include in a color-coordinated Candy Bar and I wouldn’t have to order them online from a specialty candy warehouse (which is great on the budget!). NOW, I will be able to walk into a Target store and stock up! PRICELESS when you have a last minute event and don’t have time to have anything shipped…and of course…being able to quickly grab extra lollipops for those last minute guest additions that happen to us all!
The candy collection consists of:
Round Swirl Lollipops (cherry, blueberry, green apple, strawberry, grape and orange) $3.49 each
Square Lollipop with Necco® Wafers (cherry, apple, grape) $3.49 each
Assorted Candy Jars (Rainbow Candy, Red Gummy Scotties, Gummy Fried Eggs, Bit-O-Honey, Nostalgic Mix, Gumballs, Taffy, Licorice, Sour Gummy Stars) $4.99 each
Candy Tins (Almond Butter Toffee, Peanut Brittle, Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Dark Chocolate Salted Caramels) $9.99 each
Just for a little inspiration, I have styled the candy to show you how to incorporate the new Candy Store at Target collection into your next Candy and Sweets Bars! I’ve also included a preview of some of our Soireé Event Design signature printables that will be available in our shop as DIY and Fully Assembled printables launching in May!
AND…as an ADDED BONUS for all my girlfriends…I’m hooking you up with my “Sprinkles”® Candy Bar printable DIY collection FOR FREE that coordinates PERFECTLY with most of the new Target line of candy! It includes cupcake toppers, favor bag labels, tie-on tags, candy bag toppers, table sign and table tent cards.

When planning your next Candy Bar on a budget, begin with a theme that has a multi-color palette so you may use a wide array of budget-friendly multi-colored candy items that are readily available in your local stores, like Target, so you won’t have to pay to ship or drive yourself batty looking all around town for one-color gumballs (for example). Mix in our multi-colored “Sprinkles” line of printables and you now have a very pulled together, professional looking Candy Bar for Less!
