Planning a birthday party for your son or daughter and looking for some summer sweets to fill up goodie bags? BlairCandy.com offers a delectable selection of candy that’s perfect for warm weather festivities. From Sunflower Seeds, a summer staple, to fun and fresh Gummy Hot Dogs, a fruit-flavored favorite that’s fitting for the season, we keep our prices low and our options high so you can build the best bag possible to fit your event, your kiddo’s personality, and your budget!
- While paper or plastic goodie bags are a great option, Candy Boxes can add an unexpected and unique twist to your thank you treats. We offer empty boxes in several sizes, each of which are white and ready for decorating! From markers and crayons to puff paint and bows, there’s plenty of room for your son or daughter to let their creativity run wild. A few days before their party, write up a list of all the names of the kids that will be attending the party. Then let your own little one get to work creating a custom box for each of their friends, drawing pictures on the box they know each kid will like, and adding their name so they know which box is theirs. It’s a small, personal touch that also adds some color to the cake and favor table making the goodie boxes even more tempting than they already will be!
- Once the boxes are all decorated (and have dried if paints were used), it’s time to separate the candy into piles by size. Working with the smallest candies first, Tootsie Frooties are a popular pick, fill the bottom of each box. Each bag of Tootsie Frooties includes 360 wrapped candies, so even if you’re filling 25 candy boxes, buying just 2 bags will give each kid almost 30 pieces of deliciousness! I’ve never met a Tootsie Frootsie I didn’t like, but I have to say that if I were creating the boxes for my own party I’d go with watermelon and grape.
- If you’re working with a theme or specific color palette, look for candies that tie into it. We have an easy-to-shop Candy By Color section that makes matching a snap! Also think of your child’s favorite things – there are candies to complement so many interests. Can your kid not get enough of trucks? Our Dump Truck Candy is a toy and a treat in one, and would make a cute addition to the top of the candy box, too. Have a future fireman or firewoman celebrating a birthday? Our Fire Extinguisher Candy is sure to make a splash! Kid that can’t get enough of Sponge Bob? Gummy Crabby Patties are the best Bikini Bottom has to offer! Browse our candy shop and see what sparks your interest. Sometimes you don’t even know what you’re looking for until you find it.
