Sweet Shoppe Theme

What could be sweeter than a sweet shop party for your darling little one? Such a fun theme with lots of beautiful colours, candies, candy jars and more!

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….

Decorations

You could make your own candy store awning, however this cute scalloped border could be used to help create a bright feel for your candy store for an easier option:

Pink scalloped border - Australian Teaching Aids

Another sweet option is this border wall decal which you could use to frame your sweet table setting:

Ribbon candy border - Giggle smile Designs

A lovely backdrop for the table with custom wording available:

Candyland wallpaper - Imprintables

For a bright candy feel, these wall stickers will really liven up your party space and can then be transferred into the playroom/bedroom after the party:

Candy Factory wall sticker - Lilly & Lolly

Cute printable banner with candy stripe lettering:

Candyland printable custom banner - Dimple Prints

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!

Mini cotton garland - Imprintables

Imagine the room decorated with these pastel pom pom’s! Just gorgeous!

Pastel tissue pom poms - Ah-Tissue

Mix and match your hanging decorations for a cute look:

Lemonade lantern- Details, details

 

Pink tissue paper fan - Little Sooti

 

Lime green giant balloon - Little Sooti

Table Decor

Set your table with these bright colours:

Candy pink tablecloth - P is for party

Yellow table cloth - Piece of Cake Parties and Celebrations

 

Pale pink tablerunner - P is for Party

Candy stripe table runner - The Party Parlour

Candy stripe table runner - The Petite Party Company

Paper eskimo pink spot table runner - Details, Details

 

Pink striped plates - The Little Big Company

Napkins Limocello - Occasion by Design

 

Sambellina party cups - Details, Details

 

Polkadot lime party cups - Sharnel Dollar Designs

Such cute polka dot straws for the cups/bottles!

Pink polka dot straws - Poppie Lane Emporium

To add to the fun of a sweet shop theme, try this straw holder to display all the pretty straws:

Davis & Waddell Glass Straw dispenser - Robin's Kitchen

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

Custom Printable bottle wrapper - Mon Tresor

Sweet Treats

You could make a variety of coloured cookies with this sweets cookie cutter. They would look great on the table or could be used to make some cookie take home gifts:

If you are having cupcakes in your sweet shop, keep them within the theme with these cute cuptake toppers and wrappers:

Multi polkadot cupcake flags - Brown Paper Packages

 

Scallop cupcake toppers - Twiggi

 

Candy stripes cupcake wrapper - Enchanted Creations

 

Pink & white stripe cupcake wrappers - Details, details

Instead of a cupcake stand, try displaying your cupcakes in a sweet cupcake carrier such as this one. Tie a ribbon around the top to dress it up and I think it would look really sweet!

Cupcake carrier - Sweet Little Birdy

For your main cake these candles which have wording on them such as “Sweet” and “yum yum” are just perfect for this theme!

Pink n Mix Yummy Candles - Little Sooti

Also loving the yellow and white combination of these cuties:

Lemon and white candles - Details, Details

The scalloped look of this cake stand would work in so well with a sweet shop theme, besides the fact that it is just gorgeous and could be used for many parties to come!

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:

Tatiana Candy Jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Samantha candy jar - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Chrissy glass jar - Sweet Style

Emmy glass jar - Sweet Style

If you are after some more affordable options, Ikea has a few simple but cute candy jars available such as this one:

Mogden jar with lid - Ikea

Or these sets of 3 are another great idea:

Set of 3 Apothecary jars - Little Big Company

 

Candy Jar set of 3 - Piece of Cake Parties & Celebration

For easy candy access (perfect for kids who you think can handle the glass but you still want to make it a bit easier for them) these candy bowl options are great!

17cm Conic Vase - Sweet Little Birdy

 

Glass bowl small - Sweet Little Birdy

 

Myles Candy Bowl - Sharnel Dollar Designs

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:

Krus jar with lid - Ikea

These colourful trays would look great for serving your other treats on, displaying cake pops or your drinks:

Smula tray - Ikea

To make it even more fun to serve the candy, try one of these cute scoops or tongs:

Candy Scoop - Mon Tresor

 

Candy Scoop 3oz - The Princess and the Pirate

 

Wooden Lolly scoop - Sharnel Dollar Designs

 

Bamboo tong - Sharnel Dollar Designs

Labels for your sweets not only help your guests know what they are, but also is an extra way to pretty up the table. Here are some lovely labels and stands to help you do just that!

Card holders - Occasion by Design

 

Elegant tags - Sweet Style

Another lovely way to display your lollies is to place some of the jars on this tiered stand – wouldn’t they just look even sweeter?

Pinwheels are SO cute for any theme, and these pinwheels (available in other colours too) could be used as extra decoration on your sweet table for a fun look:

To create a sweet shop feel, perhaps use a welcome sign such as this printable one and place in a pretty frame:

Or for a more traditional feel this vintage shop sign:

Open & closed metal sign - Lark

This bright chalkboard sticker could also be used to write a welcome sign or birthday message!

Love this print! I’ll happily follow it’s advice =)

If you are creating different levels on your sweet table, this colourful wrapping paper would look great wrapped around the boxes you might be using to place your other candy jars on:

To really make the kids feel they are in a sweet shop, these toys are lovely as decorations and for your little one to play with after the party too!
