Pink-a-licious Party

A few weekends ago Mr. Lemon and I had our three-year-old niece over for the night.  We had tickets to see a local matinee production of Pinkalicious (which was absolutely adorable, by the way!) for her birthday and decided to do a pre-show lunch party to get us in the mood for PINK!

Since it was just a small luncheon for the three of us, we kept the food menu pretty simple – PB&J sandwiches, strawberry applesauce, lemonade and of course – cupcakes!  I did have a great time with the decor of the table and favors…

Initially, I gathered all of the pink in our house to see what I had on hand.  A bright pink twin sized flat sheet was the perfect size for a tablecloth (need to remember this trick in the future!) and a few pink poms overhead helped to immediately brighten the space.  Mini-poms served as chair decor and pink votives lined the rest of the room for a pink pop of color.  Placesettings got a special touch with cupcake plates found at Hobby Lobby.  For the table centerpiece, of course the cupcakes had to be showcased in style!  I used my ruffled cake stands from Pier One to create a  multi-level stand with vintage looking pink votives from JoAnn’s filling in the bottom and middle layers, which let the top layer of cupcakes really stand out.  Add a sprinkling of diamonds to the tabletop and what more could a girl want?  A fairy wand, that’s what!  I made fairy wand favors using wooden dowels, ribbon, decorative flowers and a bit of hot glue.  They were so easy to put together and my niece LOVED them!  She carried her’s around for the rest of the weekend.  Definitely something I will do again.

This was one of those times where it would have been fun to simply attend the show on its own, but we really made a day of it by having a special lunch party beforehand.  It didn’t cost much or take a lot of time, but it made the day more memorable and all three of us enjoyed our festive celebration!
