Candyland Birthday Party! Happy 3rd Birthday, Alice!

Welcome to Alice's Candyland!  We put lots of thought and effort into preparing for Alice's fun 3rd birthday party and we were so excited about how it came out.  Here are some shots of the party preparation before all the guests arrived.

Here is the view into the backyard from the street:
"Beware!  Don't Get Caught in the Licorice Lagoon!" (aka Our unyieldingly discharging sump pump!):
More shots of the party decor:

The game board was made of chalk and led to Alice's Candy Castle:

Thanks to Daddy's hard work, the backyard was looking AWESOME and there were lots of seating areas:

Alice's Candy Land cake:
The Fruit Kabobs were a big hit:
The peanut butter cracker pops were also a big hit.  We also had big swirly lollipops and bowls of loose candy everywhere, both for enjoying and as decor.  We even had "Cupcake" wine to match our theme:
A colorful veggie display contributed to the array of food for the party.  It was important to have lots of fun color, but to have much of that be healthful options.
When people started to arrive, it was time for the birthday girl to get ready.  Here is Daddy, painting Alice's toenails:
The Candy Castle was a great hangout for Alice's friends during the party:
Everyone loved the fruit kabobs, veggies and cracker pops before dinner was ready:
Daddy did a great job as Grill Master:
Alice had lots of fun visiting with all the guests.  Here she is laughing with Grammie:
The chalk board game was lots of fun for the kids and while they were not running through the game, Alice and her friends were playing ball in the driveway:
We were thrilled to have friends, family and neighbors join us for the big party.  Here is a great shot of our next-door neighbors, Deb and Ed:
Everyone had a great time:
Grammie even had fun inside the Candy Castle with Alice's friends!:
Once the party was over, Alice opened her presents.  Here she is, receiving her new piano from Grammie and Grampie!:
Happy Birthday to you!  Happy Birthday to you!  Happy Birthday, Dear Alice!  Happy Birthday to you!
