gumball birthday party ideas

My  friend Kara, of Kara Party Ideas, features a party every day on her popular blog. So when I saw this fabulous gumball party that she styled for HGTV a few months ago, I knew that I wanted to return the favor she’s paid me many times.

I think my favorite detail of this party are these DIY gumball machines. So very clever! At first look I thought they were real, but Kara created them. She’s planning to post the DIY details soon, but maybe a flower pot, glass candy bowl and wooden circle from the craft store? Hmmm… we’ll just have to wait and see, but I’ll update my post when she shares. 

And here’s a look at the dessert table she created with cookies from Batches and cupcakes made by Dippidee {she added red gumballs to the tops to resemble cherries}, with cupcake liners from Hey YoYo

I love this old candy store game idea. And check out these gumball cake pops Kara made!  Enjoy the eye candy {wink} and then hop over to Kara’s for even more images and more resources. Photography by Lyndsey Fagerlund

As always, I hope you’re inspired!
