I received the Red Party Candy Buffet package that is chock-full of a variety of delicious, mouthwatering candies. There are so many ways to use candy as party decor and home decor, or even to add some extra flair to your baked treats.
The Red Party Candy Buffet includes a large box of swirly red and white lollipops. I was especially impressed that each lollipop was packaged in bubble wrap to prevent breakage during shipping. Not a single lollipop arrived damaged.
The Red Party Candy Buffet also included two pounds of red Celebration Sweetworks sixlets and two big packages of red licorice. I'll admit I snacked a bit while I was creating some holiday home decor ideas to share with you!
Also included in the Red Party Candy Buffet is a huge package of Fruit Punch Tootsie Rolls, each individually packaged. Using all four candy varieties, either separately or together, you can create some beautifully festive displays for your party or to enhance your holiday decor. Here are some of the ideas I created:
To make the Sweet Sippers, I used clear glass mason jar mugs, but you could use any clear glass. I put one licorice stick into each glass to look like a straw, then poured the sixlets around it until they filled the glass. I tied some ribbons around the top for an extra touch. You could make one for each guest or family member.
For the Candied Flowerpots, I chose a varied selection of glass mason jars that have diamond cuts on the side for extra decoration. In one I used sixlets as the flowerpot "dirt" and then carefully poked in the lollipop "flowers." In the largest one I used licorice as the "stems" and "leaves" and in the smallest one the tootsie rolls were the "dirt" in the flowerpot. I also added some ribbons around the top of the "flowerpot" jars.
The grand finale is the Confection Centerpiece which features all four candies from the Red Candy Party Buffet package. I layered sixlets in the bottom of a plastic vase, then placed licorice around the edge near the top, backfilling with tootsie rolls to support them. Then I carefully added about a dozen lollipops by sticking the lollipop sticks into the tootsie rolls. What do you think of my ideas? What would you create?
