It all started here. Well, not really, it’s just where I’M going to start. The invitation. Designed by yours truly.
The lemonade stand (made by my hubby), which was used at a recent garage sale for my daughter to sell lemonade and goodies, is a detail from ‘The Pink Drink‘ (shown on the table). Including the pink lemonade, which is also on the dessert table in the jars, and pink gumballs.
The doilies decorated different areas of the party. This was a given. You only have to open up the book to come across the cutesy doily pattern.
Pinkalicious’ star wands for the girls and a few blue ones for the boys.
A felt Pinkalicious crown for the birthday girl.
The treat bag’s goodies: A pink flower clip, crown shaped soap, pencil with a pinkalicious cupcake eraser and a cupcake shaped chalkboard. The favor bag tutorial is here.
Homemade bubble jars for the kids. Made with my stash of baby food jars and pipe cleaners for the bubble wands.
My beloved fabric pom poms. I don’t know why I love these things so much, it must be the look of the delicate ruffles the fabric makes. I also hung my daughter’s pink curtains in my kitchen to give the room a ‘pink’ feel.
The napkin pom pom garland. Made in this post and tied onto strips of tulle.
The dessert table consisted of lollipops, star wand sugar cookies, pink candy coated pretzels, pinkalicious cupcake marshmallow pops, cotton candy jelly beans, sour strawberry candy sticks, pink candy corn, sour cream soda candy, watermelon, strawberries, pink lemonade and, of course, Pinkalicious cupcakes (which were raspberry lemonade with lemon buttercream frosting).
The backdrop was inspired by the ones in the original book. When Pinkalicious turns pink, she blends in with the pink flowers.
Remember these pink cups? Told you they’d make an appearance.
This little baby was used for our ‘pin the cupcake on Pinkalicious’ game.
The birthday girl and her brother’s in their pink shirts. In case you’re wondering, the boys shirts say ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ (this is a saying used to sell breast cancer shirts for men, just in case you’re wondering. I did not make it up on my own.) And my daughter’s shirt was in this post.
The bubble blowing. Definitely a hit. And Pinkalicious is a bubble blower in ‘The Pink Drink‘. P.S. Here’s the hubby in his matching pink shirt. What sports.
The finale of the party. My birthday girl blowing out her candle. She was pretty excited for that part.
