Are you having a hard time trying to find the perfect centerpieces for your party? When it comes to themed parties, it's sometimes hard finding that centerpiece that not only stands out, but is actually useful. One way that people are saving money on centerpieces and adding more color to their party tables is with candy centerpieces. By using candy centerpieces, you can inexpensively make your own centerpieces without a lot of time or effort, and are likely to 'wow' your guests with these fun, edible centerpieces. The trick is just finding the right combination of candies and containers to make sure that your centerpiece truly stands out!
Candy Centerpieces: Lollipops
While many people don't really consider it, lollipops are a great way to color to any table without a great deal of effort. Many decorators love using old fashioned, large swirl lollipops as part of table centerpieces since they are both eye catching, and come in just about every color. This is important since it means that these lollipops can go with just about any color scheme, allowing you to make your party table fun, or even elegant with the right sucker combinations. Usually, these lollipops are placed in vase like containers, with some form of accent candy in the container to keep them in place.
Candy Centerpieces: Accent Candy
Rather than spend money on expensive marbles or beads for centerpieces, many designers are instead going with colored candies. Unlike beads, these candies can be eaten during the event if guests desire, allowing them to have a sweet treat after a meal, or even a nice piece of chocolate in a fun colored wrapper. The main purpose of these accent colors is to put more emphasis on the lollipops and help keep the actual lollipops in place. To help add extra attention to the candies, some decorators and crafters also tie ribbons around the tops of the containers, allowing the colors to stand out and also add an extra touch of elegance to each of the centerpieces.
Candy Centerpieces: Ideas
One of the best parts of making candy centerpieces is that you can really do just about anything and fit them with just about any event. While lollipops are quite possibly the most popular choice, the design of the centerpiece itself mostly depends on your own creativity. On Pinterest, you can find centerpieces that include flowers and a variety of candies depending on the actual theme of your party. You can even design them to fit perfectly as holiday decorations by using Christmas candies, or even Halloween candies to give a fun, seasonal and festive look to your event. Just make certain you plan ahead to make sure you have the right variety of candies. As well, before buying the candies at your nearest local store, do some price and comparison shopping! Often, you can buy the candies online, and most party retailers have more candies available to fit many different color schemes.
