Throwing a birthday party soon? You won’t want to miss all these inspirational ideas and stunning party decorations! I recently celebrated my birthday with several close friends and family, and I got to 'Party Like a Pineapple'! I fell in love with this Shindigz theme and I'm pretty sure this was one of my favorite parties to date!
Bring this beautiful theme to life with bold striped accents, shades of pink, green, and fun tropical touches! I like to set up a main area for all the food, drinks, etc. Make it pleasing to the eye by coordinating your decor, food table and drink station. Here I created a party backdrop with Pink Flat Paper and Cardboard Palm Trees. Add other details to your backdrop that coordinate with your theme, such as a Cursive Balloon! I easily attached the balloon to my party backdrop and then added a couple Tropical Leaves to complete the look!
Keep your event running smoothly by setting up a designated area for beverages, ice and party cups. When guests see a self-serve station, they'll happily help themselves to a party drink and you'll have more time to enjoy your celebration with your guests!
Are your party guests on social media? Create your own unique hashtag that will perfectly represent your special event! Display it on a Hashtag Centerpiece and watch all the great memories that are being made. This is an easy way to document all the fun and silly photos that you may have missed while you were enjoying your party!
Fill your dessert table with tasty treats and little things to nibble on. I love giving my guests options. I also love to splurge on decorated cakes, cupcakes and cookies. However, sometimes I don't always have time to place an order in advance. No worries! You can still make your store-bought items look amazing and festive with fun details such as displaying them on pretty cake stands and trays. Easily embellish your treats with cupcake toppers, flags and even personalized Party Like a Pineapple cupcake wrappers.
Toss the confetti, 'cause it’s party time! Set out favors for your guests to help kick off the celebration. To help my guests get involved in the fun, I set out Confetti Push Poppers! I embellished the containers to better coordinate with my party theme by adding striped paper and personalized Party Like a Pineapple stickers!
For my celebrations, I always like to add a unique twist that my guests wouldn't expect. I wanted to serve ice cream at my party; however, I wanted to put a fun little spin on it. I refurbished a vintage popcorn stand and turned it into a pretty, pink ice cream cart - Ooh la la! I set out a variety of ice cream flavors inside of Scalloped Containers. I had spoons readily available and set out Black Treat Cups for my guests to put their ice cream in.
Create the perfect tablescape for your guests to enjoy conversation and great party food. Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns, fabrics and colors! I love the look of polyester table covers. I used a Pink Rectangular Tablecloth and set out black dishes. I loved how the Striped Dessert Plates made everything pop! Tropical Leaves and Pink Napkins were set out and I topped off each place setting with a Confetti Popper!
And let's not forget a DIY photo booth! They are so much fun and very entertaining! Have you ever witnessed all the fun people are having when they dress up for photos? Hilarious! I added more Palm Trees to a Photo Booth Backdrop. I loved having a blank canvas to work with. This allowed me to get creative with my photo booth theme and also gave me the opportunity to add my own personal decor touches, like a string of Paper Lanterns and Tissue Balls.
Make sure you set out props and wearables like fun Black Feather Boas, hats and sunglasses!
Having personalized party favors for your guests will make them feel extra special! I had so much fun creating a mixture of pink grapefruit sugar scrub for my friends. It was so easy and just a small token of my appreciation. I filled Glass Candy Jars with my sugar scrub mixture and set the pretty jars out on a cake stand. My guests loved them!
Are you ready to party like a pineapple? Or perhaps you're just ready to throw a big celebration. Either way, I hope I've left you with some easy tips and fun ideas for throwing your next shindig!
