Game board walkways, balloon lollipops, candy wall decor, personalized banners and colorful candy centerpieces are some good decoration ideas for a Candyland-themed birthday party. A variety of already-made Candyland party decorations are available through online retailers such as Shindigz and Etsy, and many decorations are simple to make at home.
A colorful, winding pathway that resembles the Candyland game board generates excitement as children enter the party room, and it can also serve as a life-size playing board for Candyland-inspired party games. Tape purple, yellow, blue, orange, green and red sheets of construction paper across the floor to mimic the original game board, and use cards from the game to play with human game pieces.
Attach colorful balloons to PVC pipe or empty wrapping paper tubes covered in white paint to create giant lollipop decorations. Cover the balloons with squares of cellophane paper, and use them to decorate the yard or to line the game board walkway. Tape two disposable dinner plates together with both plates facing inward to resemble hard candy. Choose sturdy plastic plates in assorted colors, wrap matching pairs in cellophane, and twist ribbon around both ends for a realistic appearance.
Decorate with colorful candy-themed centerpieces, such as a birthday cake with gum drops, lollipops and gingerbread cookies or rainbows made from Skittles or M&M's. Fill attractive containers with a variety of colorful candies to create an eye-catching display, and then allow guests to fill up small plastic cups with their favorite treats as party favors.
