fairy floss, butter popcorn and bubble gum!

fairy floss pink, bubble gum blue, butter popcorn yellow and toffee apple red were my inspiration for a carnival party that i put together the other day. it was the cutest sweet table i have ever done but unfortunatley the weather was terrible so i didn't get any good photos *sigh*! oh well, im sure the kids still had fun- aswell as a candy party sweet table mum, rania, organised a fairy floss and popcorn machine, jumping castle and petting zoo!

here are a few pics of the sweets and ideas for a carnival party!
