What could be sweeter than fairy floss? How about 2 kids enjoying a whole cotton candy milk bar?
That was the inspiration and setting of this amazing Life’s Little Celebrations collaboration shoot – bringing together many partners from the Directory for a special shoot for the latest issue of Sweet Magazine
The vision was created and brought to life by the talented ladies of Sugar Monk in Sydney who not only brought their styling expertise but also their handmade touches through the signage and tassels
I’m thrilled to share this party which made the front cover of Sweet Magazine!
The dessert table was full of colourful desserts – some of which incorporated fairy floss in many cute and unique ways! All fairy floss was supplied by Fluffy Crunch who spun fairyfloss during the shoot and also provided their wonderful fairy floss party favour tubs!:
The whole setup brought back a retro milk bar feel:
I hope you enjoy all the amazing details of this shoot and it inspires you for your next celebration!
At the end of this post you can find all the credits so you can source any similar items or desserts for yourself:
Love the foam sign with the drip effect and the fairy floss balloons!:
This ice-cream pinata was a cute centrepiece for a sit down area for the kids to enjoy:

You could set this party up based on a traditional lolly store, a girly sweet shop with pastel colours or a bright modern candy store! Dream up different ways of displaying/serving the candies or treats (I’ve provided some unbreakable options in this post too!) and try not to eat too much of the candy before the day of the actual party!
Hope you enjoy….

The soft colours of this bunting would help create a pretty feel to your candy shop:
Alimrose bunting - Three Little Owls
Or try this garland for a fun look!
Spring smart garland - P is for Party
Love this bunting as you can pick/choose which flag designs you like when you hang it up and can decide the order of the patterns as well. So if one of the designs don’t work into your theme you can leave it out:
Paper Eskimo bunting flags - Born to Party
These sweet paper chains can be easily made yourself with this kit of pre-cut paper which is adhesive and makes creating a unique and fun decoration easy!
Candy Hues Paper linkits, precut strips with adhesive to make a paper chain - Linkits
The orange,pink and yellow colours of this garland is perfect for a sweet store feel!

Yellow and pink are so beautiful together for this theme, and these custom wrappers would be lovely on poppers, glass bottles or juice bottles!

Now onto some items to display and serve your candy if you are having a candy buffet.
I have included some glassware as well as some unbreakable options as well, so depending on the age of your guests you can choose what is most appropriate! If most of the little one’s are very very young and it is mainly the adults you are having the dessert table for, then you can’t go past the beautiful glass jars for a classic sweet shop look!
However there are still fun options for displaying your sweets if you are worried about the kids around the candy jars!
First off I love these selections for a traditional sweet shop style:
Glass ribbed jars, set of 3 - Sweet Style
Parnella Glass Jar - Sweet Style
Ryder Candy Jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs
Bormioli Rocco preserving jar - Peters of Kensington
Just adore these selections of elegant and modern candy jars:

Or these sets of 3 are another great idea:

Onto some fun unbreakable options and as you’ll see there are plenty of cute ways you can display your sweets/treats which are safe for tiny hands!
Love this turntable which can be used after the party too, to store all sorts of items!
Pink turntable with buckets - Sweet Little Birdy
Dress up these cones with some pretty paper:
Paper cone cup - Mon Tresor
These tin buckets which come in a range of colours (but I love this colour!) can be used to display lollipops as shown, as well as other treats:
12cm bucket - Lily Chic Events
Icecream cups and cupcake wrappers could also be used if you have a smaller group and hence less volume of lollies to serve
Dixie Cups - Sweet Little Birdy
These sweet melamine bowls come in such lovely colours and can be part of your kitchenware after the party!
Miniamo pastel melamine bowls - Belinda James
Another simple option is a tray such as this from Ikea which is easy for the little one’s to access and useful to display a few different lollies:
