A Twilight Party: Candy Buffet!
Today is the big 14th Twilight Birthday Party for my daughter. She's been so very excited for this- not that I haven't been! We did a lot of fun things, but let's start with a view of the candy buffet...
I opted to go with a color theme for the candy- red, black, silver, and white. Then, I realized that it just is NOT easy to find black candy that is NOT Licorice flavored! But, we managed!!
Here's what we had:
Peppermint Puffs (Red/White)
Hershey's Kisses (Red/Silver)
Root Beer Barrels (really dark brown)
Milky Way Dark (SIlver/Black wrapper)
Pop Rocks (Red/Black)
Gummy Raspberries (Black, Red)
Gummy Raspberries (different type) (Black, Red)
Candy sticks (Black/Pink, Pink/Red, Red)
Rose Suckers (Red)
Red Hots (Red)
Fruity Stars (White)
Wintergreen Gumballs (Silver!)
Red Laffy Taffy Sticks
1 Red Foil wrapped Chocolate Rose (for the birthday girl)
M&M's (Red, White, Black)
Special Dark Pieces (Black, Burgundy, Red)
Black Grapes (fruit!)
Berry Mix- Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, & Raspberries
Red Delicious Apples
That's a lot of stuff, but notice how I worked fresh fruit in there?
