Oh My: Birthdays, Easter, and Celebrations at Sweet Spot

You may think you already know all there is to know about Sweet Spot in Short Pump, but you’ll be surprised at ALL they have to offer. Sure, it’s a great place to find unique, delicious, and old-fashioned candy.

But did you know that Sweet Spot:

  • hosts fundraising events at the store
  • offers great party favors, gift baskets and more
  • can create a candy buffet just for your special event
  • has over 150 jars of bulk candy and bulk chocolate including a sugar free selection

Sweet Spot is owned by two sisters who take their business seriously. They host special events every month like Candy Bingo on the first Friday’s of each month. They make it easier for you to throw a fun and delicious birthday party because they provide the fun, food, and party favors so all you have to do is show up! Now that’s something to think about – a party where someone else does the prep and the clean up.

You can find some fun ‘hard to find’ candy at Sweet Spot too. Where else would you find rainbow colored Twizzlers or green gummy frogs! If you don’t see something you want, just let the owners know and they’ll scour their resources to find it.

Sweet Spot is located in West Broad Village near the Short Pump Children’s Museum. Stop by and say hello and tell them you heard about them on Richmondmom.com. Talk to one of the owners about hosting your child’s birthday party or other special celebration and then sit back and relax while they do all of the work. You can contact them at 804-360-7768 or email  parties@shopsweetspot.com for more information or to reserve a spot.

Hopping with Easter Fun

And if you’re thinking about Easter fun, then consider this.

With just a hop skip and jump until Easter…The Easter Bunny’s helpers are paying a visit to Sweet Spot this Spring to help with all of those Easter baskets!   Drop your baskets off at the shop, select your candy or give them a budget and let the Easter Bunny’s helpers assemble your baskets ($5 fee for materials plus the cost of candy).  They’ll  have pre-made Easter baskets too, and ready to fill Easter baskets for your own creations with lots of great candy to choose from.  One of their favorites is Hammonds Floppy Eared Bunny.

What’s not to love about Sweet Spot – it’s the place where everyone can be a kid!
