Candy Theme Ideas

It's a popular theme, but can be done in so many different ways... Here are some great ideas for candy theme decorations...

The first idea comes from none other than a Christmas, Easter, and Halloween decorations website & store (thank you to the creative folks at:

The very same website and blog entry brings this beautiful idea along with instructions:
Lighted Box idea from
Imagine this gorgeous lighted box wrapped in colors that coordinate to your party! I'm already wondering how I could adapt this idea to be a box that people could drop their envelopes into on the gift table... Instructions for making this can be found at:

Lastly, I have another link to a Christmas themed craft with detailed instructions that could easily be adapted to a candy themed Bar or Bat Mitzvah:
This project also looks easy, and extremely affordable! Instead of candies that look like mints, you could use different colors of paints and different colors of cellophane to coordinate to the colors of your Bar or Bat Mitvah!

I just can't say enough good things about BLACK tablecloths. They make the whole room so much more upscale looking. They also really help make your centerpieces stand out a lot more. When this was suggested to me, I thought for sure it would make the room look so much smaller and darker. I was SO wrong! I'm glad I took the great advice. I've seen lots of mitzvah parties that used black tablecloths and they all look great! It works for any theme or color scheme. The party pictured here was a double mitzvah for a stepbrother and stepsister pair. The theme was perfect: The Best of Both Worlds. I'm sure planning parties for pairs presents lots of challenges, and this theme could be adapted to any pair of kids celebrating thei B'nai Mitzvot together. Each table was labelled with one of the kids' interests. Notice also how added up lighting enhanced the decor.
Ask your caterer if they provide black table coverings. You will be thrilled with the look!
