Candy Corn Party Ideas

I don’t know if you guys recall, but last year I had a Candy Corn themed birthday party for my two year old son. His birthday is 3 days before Halloween, so it seemed natural to have a Halloween nod in there somewhere, but he’s still a little too young for witches, monsters, and vampires. So I decided to take a fun, fall approach to his birthday and use an orange, yellow, and white candy corn theme…I thought I’d share some fun ideas again with you this year just in case you were still trying to decide! (And P.S. I apologize for my poor photography, when I had this party last year I hadn’t gotten my good camera yet, so the pictures aren’t nearly as good as I’d like). Party Printables & Invitation available here.


DimplePrints has a fun candy corn themed party package that I used to style this party. I bought some cute mini hay bales to add some height to the table and then decorated with various gourds and pumpkins. It’s SO easy to find decorations in those colors this time of year and especially as candy corn decor has become more and more popular.

For the food, we did several dessert nods to candy corns including candy corn looking cupcakes, candy corn cookies, candy corn chocolate covered oreos, candy corn butterfingers on a stick, and candy corn cheesecake pudding cups!

There are also so many fun ways to decorate a candy corn birthday party! I used GIANT round polka dot orange balloons to make a statement when you came in, I decorated my front porch with candy corn colored mums and pumpkins, I made a wreath and hot glued real candy corns all over it, I hung candy corn poms, and I used bright orange plates and napkins from the dollar store for serving wear!

So there’s some inspiration for a fun candy corn themed birthday party for you. DimplePrints has an adorable package that you can purchase by emailing [email protected] to order. Matching invitations are available and IF you’re already planning a candy corn party, check out my Pinterest board from last year with TONS of Candy Corn Birthday ideas!
