Candy Gumdrops Party Ideas for Adults

Did you know that February 15 marks National Gumdrop Day? According to Holiday Insights, it is!

I love a good candy themed party as much as the next person, but I always wish there were more ideas out there for adults, either at the kid-friendly candy party, or FOR an adult focused, gumdrop themed party. So to help get some ideas out there for gumdrop candy party ideas for adults, I’ve put together a few of my favorite party ideas I’ve found so far.

The candy party decor ideas I’ve shared in this week’s gumdrop themed focus, include all of the major elements I would want at my candy party for adults. Thoughtful theme accents, personalized elements, delicious themed cocktails, a focal centerpiece, and a breathtaking and colorful table decor. Of course, photo booths, big props, entrance decor, clever invitations, and a million other amazing options are out there, and I’ve been pinning 200+ of my favorites. You never know when you may need them. Check out my candy and ice cream themed party ideas board on Pinterest for more fun ideas.

Gold Glitter and Pastel Shades Unicorn Birthday Party Ideas

The cuteness! It’s taking over Pinterest. Unicorns are EVERYWHERE, like an adorable plague of happiness and glitter. And to be honest, I’m not even mad! While we are being honest, I’m not even a super unicorn fan. I mean, I don’t HATE unicorns, no, but I was never like “OH MY GOSH UNICORN EVERYTHING”. But the idea of having a young child’s birthday with a full on, unicorn-fever theme….sounds like something I want to be part of.

Now me being me, I like a bit of bling at my events, thus the gold glitter element of this kid’s birthday party decor. Spectacularly shiny, gold glitter unicorns are found in each element, from the invitation, to unicorn party games, to the cake and dessert display, to even the goodie bags and photo backdrop. Cohesion is what it’s all about!

To balance out all that sparkles and shines, the rainbow colors are all along the pastel shades family, so as to not fight with the sparkling gold glitter unicorns. From what I can tell, based on my extensive unicorn party pinning, (check out my unicorn board on Pinterest if you need more ideas for a unicorn party!), an abundance of rainbows are a must for proper unicorn party, birthday or otherwise. Choosing which shade directions, warm or cool, you choose to go can greatly influence the feel of the event, so be sure to have a clear idea of your event mood before you start your shopping!

Up Themed Rainbow Wedding Ideas

99.9% of the time, I am not a fan of rainbow anything. No rainbow ice cream, no rainbow ribbons, shirts…. Anything except of course a nice rainbow after a storm.

What’s the .01% rainbow-ness I like? Anything “Up” related. If you missed it, (and seriously, if you have, stop reading this and go watch this movie. Right now.) Up is a Pixar movie that was released a few years ago. Yes it’s animated, and yea I know, cartoons are for kids, but this movie is worth the exception. It is by far one of my most favorite movies of all time.

I’ve had the inkling lately to go watch it again, and I’m waiting for that perfect lazy summer afternoon on the weekend to take advantage of it and watch it again. But it’s been on my mind a lot lately, and it got me thinking: how fun would this be as a summer wedding theme? It’s bright, colorful, and absolutely PERFECT for the couple that wants an outdoor wedding.

Bonus points: there are lots of DIY or cost effective options out there for this theme.

Here’s what I’m thinking:
