I created this party for Paula, whose daughter is turning 4 in May and loves everything about the book Pinkalicous. She didn’t want a literal take on the book, so I decided simply to incorporate as many pink & girly details as possible...
Theme: Pink Pink Pink!
Colors: all shades of pink
Setting: a seated lunch (indoors or outdoors) followed by party games and presents
Decorations: pink linens for the tables with lots of luscious pink spring flowers (peonies, carnations, roses) in white vases. hang over sized balloons and paper pom flowers in various shades of pink. Tie pink satin bows to the chair backs. essentially there’s no such thing as too much pink for this party... just be sure to vary the shades to give the party a depth of color.
Food: light bites for lunch with lots of pink desserts: peanut butter & strawberry jelly tea sandwiches, mixed berry fruit salad, pink lemonade followed by pinkalicious cupcakes and a pink candy buffet for dessert.
Favors: a ribbon wrapped pink mini bakery box with an individual pinkalicious cupcake to take home
Other: tell the girls to dress in their favorite pink outfit and offer boas, beads and other pink props for a game of dress up...even consider pink manicures. Set out a copy of the book pinkalicious for all the girls to sign with their birthday wishes.
