No matter what birthday it is, you should celebrate with fun, friends, and family. We have great birthday retro glasses, hats, and other decorations to help you celebrate right here at Woodstock Candy. There’s no right or wrong way to celebrate a birthday—but we have a few fun ideas to help ensure that any upcoming birthday is truly memorable.

Flashback Party
This kind of party is right up our alley! You can celebrate with retro candy and other fun treats. After all, a birthday party doesn’t have to celebrate just this year—it can celebrate all of the years of the past, too. A good party filled with great food, retro candy treats, entertainment, and birthday decorations will help to bring back memories. Don’t forget the music, too!

Tape Everything!
When a group of people are gathered together to celebrate a birthday, fun things are bound to happen. Getting everyone on tape will help to keep the memories recorded forever. You could make taping a yearly tradition for birthdays. Imagine how wonderful that will be when a decade of videos can be edited together to create a wonderful montage of birthday movie moments.

No matter how you celebrate your birthdays, be sure to add some fun with retro birthday sunglasses and our wonderful candy. We help to keep birthdays sweet!

Celebrate your 1960s childhood with this “Happy Memories from the 60s” gift box. The retro candy and toys in the box will certainly bring you back to a much simpler time in your life. The box includes some 60s buttons, a guitar ornament, a mini Slinky, Magic Cube, a Mini kaleidoscope, 2 hippie rubber ducks, a top, peace sign necklaces, playing cards, and some delicious retro candy.

While you’re reminiscing, let’s think about some other fun toys that you may have used in your 1960s childhood…

Remember the game Mouse Trap? How much fun was that? The game is still being produced, but it’s not as sturdy as it was back in the 1960s.
Train sets were always great toys, too. They’d sprawl across the living room floor for hours of fun.
Who could forget Barbie? She’s still around, too… but she made her debut in 1959. It could be said that the 1960s were when Barbie truly found herself and became the go-to toy for little girls.
Wooden gliders were a main staple, too. They were so cheap that everyone could have one! They were like paper airplanes—only better.
If you were a girl and didn’t have a princess phone… heaven forbid!

What were your favorite toys as a kid in the 1960s? Chomp on some retro candy, reminisce, and let us know!

We’re a day early with it, but we simply couldn’t contain our excitement anymore. Being part of the great rock and roll culture of Woodstock, NY really leaves you with a great appreciation for the music of the 1960s. Now, the Beatles may not have performed at Woodstock, but they certainly left their mark on the culture of the decade. Tomorrow is Paul McCartney’s 69th birthday! He’s still going strong and looking great (really, really great). According to Guinness, Paul is actually the most commercially successful songwriter in the history of popular music. That’s no small feat—and it only serves to speak to his influence on the culture of the 1960s and beyond.

Paul is getting ready to get married again, it seems. He’s been dating a lovely woman named Nancy Shevell since late 2007. Their engagement was reported in May of this year.

We’re sitting around getting some early Paul McCartney appreciation in today—and we’re sure the celebration will last all weekend! Sip your coffee out of a Beatles mug, listen to some of your favorite Beatles hits, and wish Paul a happy 69th!

Father’s Day offers a chance for kids to honor their dads and the important role that they play in their lives. It’s easy to give your dad a boring t-shirt, tie, or mug… but why not show him just how special he really is? Let him relive his childhood years with a box of retro candy from Woodstock Candy. He’s sure to appreciate the walk down memory lane! On top of that, your kids can incorporate some of their creativity into the special day. Here are some fun ideas to include in addition to your retro candy… you can really make Father’s Day a hit!

Rock Paperweight
Have your kids find a large rock—something that’s heavy enough to weigh down papers. Go ahead and wash it very well and cover it with acrylic paint. Add another coat to make sure that it covers thoroughly. Then let your kids to go town! Use glitter glue, write things like “Dad Rocks!” on it, and have some fun. Let it dry. Then spray it with acrylic sealer. Dad will love it.

Picture Frame Fun
Carefully cut a copy of your favorite picture into a three inch circle. Glue the picture to the center of a used CD. Then attach a magnet to the back of the CD so that it can be hung somewhere. Embellish the photo frame by gluing plastic jewels, etc. around the CD. It’s a great addition to any dad’s office!

Show any dad how sweet he is this Father’s Day with some retro candy and a homemade gift.
