Pretty-in-pink is timelessly on trend in any season, and for the lover of feminine touches, adding a glam element can definitely take any party to the next level. Whether you’re celebrating your bestie’s nuptials, hosting a kids’ birthday party or just need a reason to mix up a cosmopolitan, a pretty-in-pink party guide can help you pull it off. Since pink is perfect for any party at any age, we partnered up with Evite to get tips on DIYing pink food, activities, decorations and more. Scroll down to check it out.
Start by covering your main table with a pink table linen, then do it up with decorations. Download this free suite of printables from Evite to find multicolored paper stars and a “Happy Birthday” banner, if you’re hosting a bday bash. Hang your banner using 3M Command hooks or white painter’s tape (both are available at hardware or home improvement stores).
To mark the location of the party or use as a statement piece inside, grab this oversized, three-foot round, clear Sweet Lulu Jumbo Confetti Balloon in Lulu Pinks & Gold ($15). Blow it up with helium for a few dollars at a grocery store while picking up last-minute food and drinks the day of your party, or pay a little more for the same service at a party supply store. Then watch Evite’s video tutorial to learn how to make your own DIY tissue paper tassel garland, then attach it to the base of your balloon or hang it on a wall for a festive photo booth backdrop.
Pretty-in-Pink Food + Drinks
For a dainty dessert, place pale pink macarons on this pretty Meri Meri Toot Sweet Pink Stripe Platter Set ($9, set of three) so guests can grab and go with ease.
Upgrade store-bought cupcakes with this Toot Sweet Pink Cupcake Kit ($13, four sets of 12). Or make your own treat toppers by attaching gold star stickers to toothpicks.
For a show-stopping centerpiece, present party guests with a two-layer cake on this ADORN Platter Pleasers Cupcake/Cake Stand ($25, set of three). You can custom-order your cake or cupcakes from a bakery, or make your own. Still seeking more sparkle? Try these DIY glitter candles to make your celebration shine.
To check out even more food and drink ideas for your pretty-in-pink party, try the deLISH strawberry cake, strawberry chiffon Champagne cake, blackberry swirl cupcakes, raspberry-Champagne cocktail or blackberry sage spritzer recipes from Evite.
Pump up your party with a glam Candy Warehouse Gold Foil Star Piñata ($15). Fill it with candy for a fun birthday party activity or use it as a sparkly piece of decor at a baby shower or bachelorette.

Send guests home with a little something sweet, like these pretty pre-packaged Zurchers Pearl Pink Gumball Tubes ($3 each). Just download and attach these free printable favor tags from Evite for a sweet treat.
Or, you can package candy or other little goodies with a DIY deluxe party favor packaging. Evite even provides printable favor bag covers that match this party perfectly. Download their full suite of free Pretty-in-Pink glam party printables, and follow the guide below for more tips on techniques and materials to help you pull off your next Pretty-in-Pink party:
— hole punch
— X-ACTO knife (helpful, though not necessary)
— mini wooden dowels for cake toppers
— tape for hanging banners and signs
— twine or string for banners and signs
1. When making a banner, measure and cut the string to fit the length of the wall where you plan to hang the banner, then fold the string in half to find its center. Attach the middle letter to the middle of the string and work outward on either side to ensure your message is centered.
2. Don’t have time to digitally personalize our editable printables? No problem, write the names or titles in by hand!
3. Having trouble cutting around the small grooves? Use an X-ACTO knife for those areas.
4. A hole punch is essential for cutting out holes to insert string or twine.
