A Sweet Sixteen Dance Party Celebration

Everybody loves a candy buffet! And having one at my niece's Sweet Sixteen Dance Party was the ultimate treat!  This post contains affiliate links and I was compensated with delicious product from Oriental Trading!  The sweet sixteen party was held at a Marriott hotel so much of the planning and details were handled by the hotel event coordinator. But my sister-in-law asked me if I would help with the decorations by adding personal touches like making a card box, 

.  .  . a backdrop
and enhancing centerpieces.  At that point, all I could think of was making lots of pretty bows in shades of purple and gold! 

But then I received an offer from Oriental Trading to partner with them - they would send me their product (my choice) if I would do a blog post about my experience.  How cool is that? Thank you Oriental Trading!

Putting a candy buffet together was so much fun and Oriental Trading makes it easy by offering everything you need from their party supplies to create the perfect theme party, including a huge assortment of bulk candy and everything else you might desire. No more running around here and there looking for purple candy!

I chose the Purple Candy Buffet Assortment! It's a purple candy lover's dream come true!

This astounding group of treats included purple rock candy pops, purple gum balls, purple salt water taffy, bright purple swirl pops, purple butter mints, shimmering lavender chocolates, and purple candy sticks. I also order a few additional items like gold foil wrapped hard candy, purple heart candy, purple foiled chocolate kisses, white almonds and white lollipops.  

 .  .  .  creating a fun and exciting display that included an eye popping purple, gold and white candy buffet and a bow ribbon backdrop and balloons galore!

And also available -  gold swirl cellophane favor bags for the teens to fill and take home!  So cool!

Even though I had containers and scoops from previous get-togethers, Oriental Trading offers those in a variety of styles and colors, too! 

And, besides the food and dessert .  .  . 

we all know that the best parties are the ones where everyone is dancing!  And a Sweet Sixteen Dance Party is no exception.  To keep the party going, there was a DJ blasting out favorite teen lyrics and tunes, featured rappers, along with those crazy dance moves all the teens are into these days! OMG!

A photo booth was also available to capture exciting moments!

And having a lovely candy buffet for the teens surely kept the energy level pumped and elevated! 
What a party!
