Happy Birthday!! Smart and Final turns 140!!!

I was so excited to be part of the wonderful celebration to commemorate Smart & Final turning 140!!  Can you believe the wonderful establishment has been around for 14o years!!!  Part of being with the Smart & Final Samarties give me the fun opportunity to create and style a Birthday Celebration!!!!  So Fun!!

So are you ready to celebrate with me??? I wanted to use the Smart & Final Logo to inspire my color palate!!  But I threw in some fun color pops of pink and some other FUN “party” colors!!

I made the Candy Bowl Cake using the Smart & Final  First Street yellow cake mix and candy found at Smart & Final!!!! I also used the Chocolate Pastry Pride non-dairy topping for the frosting (in the frozen section at S&F!!). Yummy!!  A simple tutorial on how to make this is coming soon!

I also made a Candy Bar Cake!!  I had a hard time choosing what candy I wanted to use!!  There are so many choices to select from!!  It is a chocoholics dream! A tutorial is coming for this too!!

I think I bought 50 pounds of candy!!  So much for my diet!!!

I also made cute candy bowls from the smaller candies and of course filled them with … you guessed it more CANDY!!

What Birthday party doesn’t have candy!!

I dressed up some recycled bottles for the drinks!!

Thank you Jamilyn from I heart NapTime for the inspiration with the cupcake wrappers I used to dress these cuties with!!

And the remaining candy bars!!

I also dressed up the marshmallows with some Candy melts and sprinkles!!

I think it turned out pretty cute!!   What do you think???


Any one want a bite of Rainbow Sprinkle Cake???  This is the surprise inside the Candy Bowl Cake!!  I used the Smart & Final First Street Rainbow sprinkles in the cake!!!!  How fun is that!!!


This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for #collectivebias, but all opinions and ideas are my own.
