Candy Party Invitations

When I started planning my son's candy birthday party, the very first thing I thought of was how I wanted to do the invitations. I love this invitation, and if I was a kid, I'd love to get one!

While his party wasn't a 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' party, per say, there is no denying that the Wonka world is a big part of child's sweet shop fantasy. So playing off the Golden Ticket idea from the book, we made our own Wonka Bars with tickets inside.

I wanted our bars to look like the classic ones in the original movie, so I printed off these Wonka wrappers. I bought Caramilk bars to wrap them around, because Caramilk uses gold foil on their bar and I thought it would look better.

Then I found an image of a golden ticket from the movie online and with a little Photoshop magic, we tweaked it to invite the kids to the birthday party, rather than a factory tour.

I took off the Caramilk paper, and wrapped the ticket around the gold foil.

Then wrapped and taped the Wonka wrappers into place. Perfect. They looked exactly like the bars in the movie and I just loved them. And how happy would you be to get a chocolate bar with your invitation? So great.
