A Pinkalicious Party

My daughter just loves Victoria and Elizabeth Kann's book Pinkalicious. So when it was time for the fourth birthday party, this was an obvious theme.

You can visit the Cupcakes for All website for printables and party ideas. It's very pink! You can purchase the book at Barnes and Noble, one of our favorites haunts!

How easy is that, go out and buy everything Pink? I found pink Hershey's Kisses in honor of the breast cancer awareness. At Target, I found pink M&M's in support of the Susan G. Komen Brest Cancer Foundation. I picked up a bunch of pink roses and pink carnations at our local grocery store. I chose pink plates, cups and napkins at Party City.

I had these adorable little tea cups packed away in the attic, so I pulled them out, filled them with floral foam and carnations. Didn't they turn out well? My sister and I used to have cups at tea parties with our grandmother. They bring back some wonderful memories.

I found this lovely little suitcase styled box at Home Goods. They even have sterling handles! (Oh, my - I hadn't taken the wrapping off the silver for the shot! :) The organdy pouches were found at Party City. We filled them with lip glosses & nail files.

Of course, I had to make some cookies. I made these little flowers with stylized "e's" for my daughter's name and some luster dust for extra sparkle. You can find luster dust at Global Sugar Art.

A simple mint julep cup and three roses makes a beautiful centerpiece on the sweet little ice cream table and chair set. My mom and I found the table and chair set at an antique show and sale. Well, if you must know where, the Pottersville Antique Show and Sale is the place!

I had these wonderful cupcakes made at our local Wegman's to save myself some time. I think they turned out great and they were moist and delicious.

I found some pink tulle at Joanne Fabrics. I draped it around for added decoration.

We searched high and low for an all pink pinata. This one fit the bill. It was a wonderful event, with simple old fashioned games like putting the clothes pins in a bottle, and an egg race. A fun and wonderful theme that can be adapted from almost any favorite story. Happy celebrations!

Love all the pink. Each valentines day my sister makes everything for breakfast milk, pink pancakes etc.

Your blog is a wonderful reminder to make life a celebration.

Lovely, you are very creative. I collect teacups and have been known to put flowers in mine when I give them as gifts. I enjoy your blog. Wishing you happiness. Katherine
