Pinkalicious Themed Birthday Party

I am working on a new feature for my website to aid customers in their party planning! I will be adding resources from a variety of sources as a wealth of ideas for your themed-event. Very excited about this, as its been in the works for quite some time, but taking a lot of time to get underway.

This first idea comes to you courtesy of Jadi from the Homemaking Fun blog! I am so thrilled to be able to include this, as her party centers around one of my middle son's favorite books, Pinkalicious (yes you read that right!) This theme has been gaining popularity and I have previously featured an invitation for this theme on my blog. The book is adorable---and you should also check out Purplicious & Goldicious by the same authors.

Read on to see Jadi's great ideas for hosting a Pinkalicious themed party...

I was inspired by this book. I love the color pink and thought it would be fun to host a pink themed play date for my daughter and her friends. I started out by reading this book to the girls.

After I read the book the girls made necklaces out of pink beads and then colored pinkalicous pictures that I printed from Elizabeth Kann's website. Click HERE to go to her site to print the pictures and get other pinkalicious activity ideas. I also made pink play dough that I sent home with the girls. Click HERE for my favorite play dough recipe.

For the refreshments I served pink cupcakes, pink frosted sugar cookies, pink wafer cookies, pink whopper candies and pink lemonade. I also added some grapes and strawberries to have something healthy. :)

Here is a close up of the refreshments.

I hot glued paper cups to the bottom of paper plates to make pink serving platters for the refreshments. I saw this idea in a Martha Stewart magazine for kids parties. They suggested putting a big rock or something heavy inside of the cups to help keep the platters balanced.

I hung lots of balloons from the ceiling and tied white tulle to the tops of them for the decorations.

The guests took home a pink bag with pink treats and a container of pink play dough.

And of course, Cutie Pies Custom Creations has adorable stationery to complete your Pinkalicious party ;) Invite your guests to your Pinkalicious themed party with THIS adorable invitation!

And this sweet cupcake folded card makes the perfect thank you to compliment this party theme.

If you have any additional ideas to add, or would like to share your party in one of our features, leave a comment below or email me! Once again, thanks to Jadi for permitting me to include her party ideas for Pinkalicious! Visit her blog for tons of other party/celebration & general kids/family ideas. Stay tuned for more wonderful party ideas.
