Pink & Gold Party Decorations

PINK & GOLD PARTY DECORATIONS

Today I am sharing a roundup of stunning and shimmering gold and pink parties.  Gold in metallic foil and glitter is still very ‘IN’ and looks perfect when paired with all shades of pink. These painted wood letters for a first birthday are a perfect example of a unique centerpiece for the birthday table.  Yet the O-N-E does not detract from the main focus, the princess birthday cake.

This unicorn party is fun, whimsical, yet sophisticated with the flowers and pearl filler in the glass globe vases. That cake looks too beautiful to eat!

Next up is a birthday party for a two year old featuring a gold glitter cut number cake topper and heart cake toppers. Simple yet classic.

Giant paper flowers as a party table background speaks volumes at this party.  Paired with small flowers on the gold painted and glitter coated wood letters – makes for a perfect table centerpiece.  These flowers are a super easy diy project too!

This party features a stunning hanging sign behind the party table with the birthday girl’s name.   The name banner across the front of the table ties it all together.  I love tables that are flanked by balloons too.  This is the easiest way to build height and create a visual statement when decorating your party table.

Rather than a single central main centerpiece- this party table has doubled each serving plate, cake and cupcake stands.  This is another great decorating visual trick – creating a mirror effect across a long table with the placement of two identical serving trays and duplicating each food set up.

I hope you are inspired by these stunning pink and gold parties today!

Confetti Party Ideas & Background DIY

MAKE YOUR OWN PARTY BACKGROUND WITH CONFETTI

hooray

This is a colorful, easy and inexpensive way to add a large background at your next party.  Scroll down for the three easy steps for this diy tutorial and easy how-to instructions.

The background design here is HOORAY in bright colorful rainbow confetti but I could see this with the birthday guest of honor’s name or maybe BABY, BOY, or GIRL for a baby shower.  I would so make this with a number spelled out, such as for a first birthday, with O-N-E or the actual number “1” as big as you can make it.  I love this diy because it can be personalized to your party!

And create your own color scheme with CONFETTI

Basically all you need is a pencil, poster board sheets, glue, disposable sponge brush . . . and of course CONFETTI!

1.) Start by freehand drawing the letters or number you plan to use for your background with your pencil on the poster board.  Depending on how big you want your background, you can make one letter, giant size, per each sheet of poster board or smaller by just drawing out your whole word on one sheet of  a single poster board, as shown below.

I like that these letters are kind of wonky and not so perfect, but if straight and perfectly even letters are your thing, you could use large letter stencils to trace your letters.  You could even skip the whole drawing freehand process and just use your home printer to print one large letter out per 8 1/2″ x 11″ letterhead size on heavier card stock.  If you decide to print and cut, your letters, I definitely recommend using at least a 65 lb card stock or heavier so your letters will stand up and be stiff once you cut them out.  Printer paper will be too floppy.  Another option is to print your letters on print paper, cut them out and then glue them on top of your poster board.

If you own a Silhouette or Cricut cutting machine you can actually go ahead and cut your letters before adding your confetti too.  This would be the easiest way and will give you perfectly straight letters.  If you are using this at a wedding or other event, you could even get fancy with your cutting machine and create a fancy scroll three letter monogram, like this-

2.) Once you have your letters worked out, if you are hand drawing them, gather your confetti, glue, and sponge brush.  You may either cut your letters first and then add the confetti, if you don’t mind that your confetti may hang off your letters, or you can glue the confetti on and then cut your letters to get perfect edges, as shown here-

Confetti Letters

Apply a thin layer of glue to the inside of your first letter and then quickly apply your circle tissue confetti in a random pattern of mixed colors.  Do this for all your letters.

 If you cut your letters first, either by hand or with your silhouette, you can also use other styles of smaller and more dense confetti and simply sprinkle it on top of your glue coated letter and shake off any excess.

I recommend doing this process outside or on a large cookie sheet to keep your confetti clean up to a minimum.

3.) Once you have coated your entire letters, let them dry, and cut them out, in whichever order you choose to do so, you are ready to hang them up on your wall or you can even tie them with clear fishing string and dangle them from the ceiling too!  If you add them to a wall,  the best way to get them up is with Command or Scott’s brand sticky tabs.

Confetti Party Background

Since it will most likely be a temporary display that you will take down right after the party, you can easily just pull off the letters and wall tabs without damaging your walls.

Photo Backdrop

Whatever phrase or word you add to your party background- this easy diy will look stunning at your next celebration.

Get creative and make a design that fits your party or even as a photo backdrop!  Great idea for photographers for a photo shoot too!  Perfect table backdrop at a baby shower or wedding or perfect for a fiesta!
