With the weather heating up, I thought a tropical themed party was perfect for an impromptu end-of-school celebration with friends.

Instead of fussing with an array of food, I decided to keep things simple and go with a Pineapple themed dessert bar.

How to Create a Pineapple Themed Dessert Bar

I love candy buffets for parties. They make goody bags so much easier because everyone does the work for you!

I’m using a mixture of Celebration by Frey® gumballs and Sixlets® for my candy buffet here. I love how they have an assortment of 20-25 colors that all compliment each other with a shimmer and shine, so you can mix and match.
