Girls just want to have sweets! Let's celebrate with a special offer from LA Candy Bar and a free printable.




The new Blake collection was the inspiration for this sweet party theme that we set up in our Mississauga store. Whether you are hosting a baby or bridal shower, birthday party or Mother's Day get together we have lots of diy ideas here to help you get the party started. Special thanks to our friends at LA Candy Bar in Burlington for supplying the sweet treats for the sweet table display and favor packaging


Everyone loves sweets and it's so easy to co-ordinate candy colours with your party decor. The Blake collection is very colourful so we were able to use a large variety of different candies in our display.


We used an assortment of different glass jars to display the candy for our sweet table. Don't forget to add candy scoops and small candy bags for guests to help themselves. 


Your guests will be happy when you send them home with these diy candy favors.


We used the Martha Stewart fringe cutter with the Blake tissue paper to make these tassels and fringed decorations for the tables.


Assorted wraphia and ribbons were used on the favors along with custom stickers


Favor packaging from top left: clear pails, clear take out boxes, clear boxes and econo candy bags.


These clear tubes make great favors. Add a piece of glitter or washi tape to keep the lids in place and add a decorative element.


And now here's a sweet deal for Creative Bag customers from LA Candy Bar in Burlington. Spend $99 or more on bulk gummy candy and they will give you a 15% discount. Just refer to code "creativecandy15" at the time of purchase. Offer is valid from March 18th, 2016 to August 31st, 2016 when you shop instore.*
*No cash value. No cash back. No rain checks. Cannot be combined with any other offer. 


I created this printable for the sweet table display and you can download it here to use at your sweet party too!

Our newest and exclusive line of gift wrap, the Blake collection, is now available in all stores and online. This floral watercolour inspired collection includes bags, gift wrap and tissue paper and it co-ordinates with many of our everyday products in white, gold and kraft.

Pink. Coral. Green. Turquoise. Gold. The watercolour pattern has so many beautiful colours that it makes finding ribbons and solid tissues to match it breeze. Make this collection sparkle by adding some gold glitter tape to your gift wrapping supplies and these boxes.

The tissue paper is white with the floral watercolour pattern around the edges. It is one of my favourite elements in the collection.

White set up boxes were decorated with wrapping paper bands using the Blake wrapping paper and decorated with pink ribbon and gold glitter tape. You can use paper edge punches to give your wrapping paper bands an extra special touch. Kraft boxes with white and gold glitter details co-ordinate nicely with this collection when you decorate them with white satin and lace ribbons.
