Make Your Own Cat In The Hat Party Candy Favors

            Something to take home

Thank you all so much for stopping by during the week and commenting on our Cat In The Hat Party! You guys are great! Today we are wrapping up the party by showing you a little take home party favor we gave out at the end of our party. At the end of this post will be the links to the other party "how to's" in case you missed anything.

Since we had less than a week to pull this Cat In The Hat party together, we had to quickly think of what treats we wanted and how to display them, and use them as take home party favors.

We love making candy sticks as party treats and knew that would work. Since we did not have the time, and the budget to order candy online, we scoured the grocery store to see what we could use.

We wanted bright happy colors, as well as some of that Dr. Seuss blue and red that is so traditional. We choose to use: Red Fish, rainbow licorice, rainbow sour belts and cherry gummy rings for our candy sticks.

We used skewers to hold the candy on. To cover up the stick, we cut the licorice in two and put the stick through the licorice and than layered on the other pieces of candy.

We found little red flower pots at dollar tree to use to hold our treats in. A little piece of Styrofoam in the pot to hold the sticks works fine. We used water bottle wraps to decorate the little red pots with.

We added in some fun Cat In The Hat party printables to the treats as well. You can find the Cat In The Hat printables here.

Colorful Tootsie Pops always are a favorite. Not only do they taste good, but the color and shape are fun to use.

We love using these types of party treats on the dessert table as decoration and than as party favors.

Just in case you missed anything from our little mini series Cat In the Hat party, you will find all the links below. Now get out there and plan a party! Be inspired. Get creative!

When the righteous rejoice, there is great glory;
But when the wicked arise, men hide themselves.
