One of my fellow taste testers told me that her daughter's junior high class was having a Willy Wonka theme for their dance. How cool is that? The parents decorated the gym with giant lollipops and candies and all sorts of other cool stuff. My eighth grade dance theme was "Almost Paradise" (from Footloose) and we had palm trees and big flowers. Booooorrrring.Here is the lovely Miss Jacqueline hanging out at the candy store. I love how they cut out pictures of candy jars and put them on the wall.
While we're on the subject of Wonka, I have a giveaway to announce! The kind Oompa Loompas over at Wonka have given me an assortment of their new bars and fruit jellies to give to a lucky Yumster.So here's what you have to do to enter: leave me a message saying what kind of decorations you'd have if you were hosting a candy-themed party. I'll pick a winner at random on June 21. Be sure to tell me how I can contact you. Continental U.S. residents only, please.
