I just love simple and sweet birthday party, especially when it’s photographed as beautifully as this candy party from Geneve Hoffman Photography. For her daughter Paige’s second birthday, mom Kelli designed a candy-filled, pastel party, including a photo booth and candy table. But I think you’ll agree – the sweetest thing of all is birthday girl Paige!

Sparkly shoes and a tutu – now that’s outfit that’ll make a birthday girl feel special!

To make your own Dum Dum lollipop topiary, check out the great tutorial at Meet the Dubiens.

Lengths of pink ribbon were hung from the back of Paige’s chair. So easy, and so pretty.

Candy necklaces were strung together to make a garland for the candy table.

This is how every little girl should feel on her birthday, don’t you think? : )

The photo booth props included crowns and flowers, and photographer Geneve Hoffman shot lovely pictures of the party guests.

What a lovely party – thank you so much for sharing, Kelli! Happy birthday to Paige!

    I have thought about doing a candy party, or ice cream party in March for Abbie's 4th birthday. This post is making me lean more toward candy... such cute ideas:)

      Deciding between a candy theme and an ice cream theme is a win-win! ; ) I have lots of ideas for both if you have time to look around!

      Hi Michele! I didn't throw this party so I'm not sure where those two items came from. But, I do know you can find bags like that just about anywhere!
