The Relish Caterers + Event Planning Summer Entertaining series – Late Summer Edition. August 16th 2012

Last updated 6 years ago

Here are a few fun Centerpieces and entertaining ideas that are the perfect complement to a casual party or kid’s party.  

1. Candy Age: Gather some jars with lids. You can collect them throughout the year and vary the size and style by table. Buy various size gum balls or other hard candies to fill your jar. Fill the jar with the candies, leaving about two inches from the top. Nudge the candle numbers midway into the jar. You can change this up a bit by inserting initial candles with one color gum ball for a mature, playful look.



2. Lollipop Bouquet: Spray paint some mini terra cotta pots with a bright eye catching color. Then find a small styrofoam ball in your local craft store to place inside the painted pot. Just insert the Dum Dums into the styrofoam ball. Lastly, tie a ribbon around one of the Dum Dums and attach a note card with the table number or a message.
