40th Bash Part 2: Candy Bar

So for my husband's 40th he wanted a candy bar, since I do them for other people all the time, he wanted a really good one. So I did my best to do the best for this monumental birthday.  I had Posh Pixels do my labels and invitations. I asked for the labels that she had done for The Hollywod CAndy Girls...love how they put together candy bars:) So I did a little copying with the lolipops (which I found at the Dollar Store for only a dollar!!!!) Since it was a 40th party I used the boy's pictures from when they were 4yr old.; which I blew up at Kinkos for only $3.00 each! I simply used the candy that both boys liked the most.  I even added some Kettle Corn for my brother-in-law...he LOVES that stuff and so did everyone else! The cakes were from Eddie's Bakery, we kept that part simple. I later added some lights throughout the jars to add a little more spark to the candy bar! Over all I think this was a huge hit at the party! Thanks Posh Pixels and The Hollywood CAndy Girls for your creations and inpirations! This was my take on it:)
I borrowed these martini glasses from a friend who purchased them from Home Goods...they have come in VERY handy these days!



I purchased all this jars from Home Goods and they took about 2 and a half bags of candy from Costco.  The lollipop sticks weren't long enough to stay upright in the jar, so I taped them to a longer dowl that I purchased from Michaels...I think I lived there during this candy bar!

I LOVE this slim conatiner I found at Home Goods...I have used this one the most to hold the  treat bags for all my candy bars...so nice!

Licorice is one of my husband's FAVORITE candy!!!

Kettle Korn was from a local guy here is Fresno starting out a side businesss, Scott Brown, he even delivered it to the site!!! It was great!!! I used snow cone cups for serving.

I attempted to to create a 40 sign out of tissue by following the directions from Prudent Baby, but I think their's was cuter:) It took FOREVER!!!! But it was fun!
