Candy Crush Party Theme: Budget-friendly Ideas and Inspiration

Candy Crush Party Ideas for Decorations to Food
Gotta love a party theme that’s this easy on the eyes and easy on the pocket! Thanks to ideas for pre-designed party printables, home baked goodies, and candies galore all shown here.

A Candy Crush cake could be a sugar overload! So see how The Craftables lets you opt for a printable version (yes, those are paper!) of a Candy Crush cake stand and topper (1). Even a small, unfrosted cake can still look like the sweetest birthday cake ever!

Then on your party tablescape (2, via Dylan’s Candy Bar), bright candy-colored placemats, napkins, and coasters can play up the happy theme at minimal cost, too! While rainbow whirly pops make the easiest and most eye-catching candy centerpieces (3), as shown in our own Bellenza painting party set.

Now for the party treats! If you are a real Candy Crush aficionado plus a super-crafty baker, check out these incredible Candy Crush cupcakes (4) by The Caking Girl. Each topper is meticulously assembled from rolled fondant to mimic the puzzle game icons (watch her time-lapse video in the link), then presented on a game-screen tray. Amazing!

Candy Crush cookies (7) would make another party treat the kids would love–so prettily decorated here by Haniela’s. Or you could give them as party favors, along with clear candy tubes filled with sweets in Candy Crush colors and trimmed with matching Candy Crush printable tags (5) we found via Oh My! Creative.

And for party activities that go with the theme, play along with ideas like this DIY Candy Crush game board (6)—used as a costume on Pumps and Iron! Or you could create an original game using this board, depending on the ages of the guests. Or even use it as a party backdrop.

So many sweet ideas you can spin off from this ever-popular video game. You’ll have one delighted birthday girl with a Candy Crush party like this!
