    Thanks so much for your post and your interest in ShindigZ. Diamonds and pearls, what a fun theme! Diamond ring Mylar balloons would make a great start for centerpieces – Choose a pastel shade of your favorite color for the tableware and an accessories so the white pearls and diamonds stand out more – . Have a great birthday celebration! We look forward to helping you bring it all together. Please contact us with any questions at 1-800-314-8736 or

    All the best, Jodie Batterton, Customer Service Manager
