superhero party progress... candy buffet update w/ picture more
July 12, 2010 at 4:29 AM

so I took the advice of georgezilla ( probbaly spelled that wrong too..lol) and started looking at other places rummage sales, etc and thse are what I found

I know some mommies are against the whole candybar thing, but it will make a great decoration

Ibut i'm also adding tooth brushes, I was going to do the superhero ones, but they where a dollar 50 each, so i'm doing the cheap ones, and playing them up with lots of ribbon....

so these are the candies, I either have or are going to use..

Giant Pixy Stix Candy Straws: 100CT BoxGiant Bizarre Jawbreakers -Wrapped: 35LB Basket

Jumbo Peppermint Candy Sticks: 48CT Display

M&M's Milk Chocolate - 56 oz. bag

so these are the bouncy balls in a jar, the one I will use will be a cylender,so tell me what you think

adn jut to show you guys the size of these balls, the red one is ones that you use in a ball pit, can the bounce balls are big enough that they don't fit in a toilet paper tube.

 

so these are the newest addtions to my candy buffet, i'm starting to think that I have too many lollipops....

I just brought these swirl pops today and I am very excited, and I love how they come with ribbon attached...

these laffy taffies, I had the mini ones that I was going to use in the jars, but these will work better, they were at the dollar, and come 10 in a pack.... :o)npw the small ones may be used either in the party favors, or the pinata

pez, since i will be giving out the superhero pez

some more of the candy, doubt it will last till december

can you believe i won 25 bags of candy melts, and dozens of candy molds on eaby for 12 dollars....!

these glasses are at the dollar tree, I was really excited to find some with lids on them, adn are the mini coke glasses too cute.... I might have to find a way to incorparate them into a party somehow, maybe number for... the rock star

my next glass find, the bigger glasses where found at goodwill thrift store, I have been having really good luck with the,, and the star disses where from the dollar tree

 I found take out boxes at smart and finale, i don't know if other states have them but there where 4.69 for 50, pint size containers, way cheaper than you would find at party city, or micheals

YOu guys already saw my excitedment about the pixie sticks

and my candy corner that bottem box with rex is full of suckers, and marvel hero laffy taffiers,

if you guys think this is a lot of candy you sould've seen it before my little cousins party, pictures still to come

    I'm glad you found some!  They're really cute, and I'm sure a lot cheaper than buying new!  I've only found two so far...I haven't been to a rummage in weeks.  And yes, you spelled it right!

    I found a few more today!  I have 8 so far. 

    Toothbrushes are a good idea!  Where'd you get yours & what are you using for the candy scoops?

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh wat a steal. Ive been looking around and the ones i found were like 10 each..... ugh. There are not mny thrift shops I know of in NYC but there is one I just half to take the bus one day when Im kid free. Or I might use jars from the container store. I have a friend who works there and she might be able to get me a discount.

    I want to do a candy bar because of how they look, however I know the hubby ain't having it.  I can't WAIT to see your pics when it's all finished.  I think the tooth brushes are a cute idea
