Hey party peeps!
This week is Rainbow Week and today I’m sharing my Look for Less Tip: Create a Pokemon Rainbow Candy Bar & SAVE MONEY! If you have ever styled and stocked a candy table or as I like to call them, “Candy Bar” for your party, you know how EXPENSIVE they can get! Especially when you have a specific color palette that you are trying to match and you have to order custom candy in those colors.
Whenever I’m designing party on a budget and know that I or the client wants a candy table, I almost always create the party decor around a multi-colored rainbow color palette. Multi-colored candy is available almost anywhere local and you don’t have to order custom candy which means HUGE SAVINGS for you! The multi-colored candy for this candy bar cost me $32! WHAT????
HOW DID SHE DO THAT?
Easy! Went to my local Walmart and looked for packs of candy that had the colors of the rainbow! And there are LOTS! I chose gumballs, Twizzlers, Skittles, iced cookies and swirl pops.
Gumballs $5 (1 container from Walmart)
Swirl pops $12.50 (2 dozen – $6.25 a dozen from Oriental Trading)
Twizzlers: $6 (2 bags at $3 a bag from Walmart)
Iced Cookies: $8 (2 containers – $4 for 8 from Walmart)
Candy bars can run anywhere from $100-$200 for candy alone depending on the types, quantity and color. So, you can see this design approach saves you money!
SPLURGE ON EXTRAS LIKE PRINTABLES WITH ALL THE MONEY YOU SAVED!
With all the money I saved I was able to get these individual bags of cotton candy AND personalize everything with printables for a truly professional & custom look! I designed these printables myself for my daughter Faith’s Pokemon PokePark party.
I know…I know…you’re saying…HOW DARE SHE NOT TALK ABOUT THAT FABULOUS FEATHER BACKDROP! Tune in tomorrow where I’m dishing on where I got it and how easy it was to make!
