One of the most requested themes that I get for birthday party ideas is a Sweet Shoppe Party or Lollipop Party!  I am so excited to share the happy, playful, bright, and cheery party by Kate Petronis of  And Everything Sweet.  Kate hosted this party for her daughter at a local gymnastics business (the first time she has hosted away from home), and shares how she customized the party table with her wonderful treats and how she used the lively Sweet Shoppe Collection from Amanda's Parties to Go!  Kate made all of the deserts herself!

This is one fabulous cake!  Kate is quite the talented cake artist.  Notice how she incorporated an ice cream cone (double scooped!), a cupcake, and a gumball machine cake all in one cake- just like what you would find in a sweet shoppe!

Kate also made these gorgeous spiral cookies to resemble pieces of candy!  She says they are easy to make!


Each guest had her own yellow gumball machine~

And these adorable containers for filling with candy!

Popcorn was served in cute treat boxes from Amanda's Parties to Go~

Kate also made each little girl a Sweet Shoppe headband to wear instead of party hats, and the girls decorated frames to take home as favors~

I love how Kate turned a chinese lantern into a candy decoration by threading tulle through the center!

Such a fabulous and fun Sweet Shoppe Party!  Thank you for sharing, Kate!
