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.
