Decorations are an easy way to incorporate color into your girl’s pink birthday party. You should use different shades to break up the color a bit. For example, the balloons could be a lighter shade of pink, and the plates and cups could be a darker shade like hot pink. Hang paper lanterns in light and dark shades of pink and create a totally different feel when they’re lit. These will also work well at an outdoor pool party.
Plastic cups and plates come in a variety of colors and offer the perfect opportunity to inject more pink into the party. Don’t forget about flowers, table runners, ribbons, and confetti.
- Use different shades of pink in common decor: tablecloths, plates, cups, etc.
- Add paper lanterns for extra flair
- Use pink flowers: tulips, roses, peonies, etc.
When it comes to getting the perfect cake for your little angel, there are several choices to pick from. Depending on your daughter’s age, a character cake would make an excellent choice. Hello Kitty, Princesses, and Barbie are ideal characters because of their pink color schemes. If you’re planning a birthday party for an older girl who loves pink, then consider a regular round cake or cupcakes covered with strawberry frosting. Be sure to check with the bakery ahead of time to make sure they’re able to accommodate any special requests you might have.
- Character cakes for younger girls: Hello Kitty, Barbie, princess themed
- Round cakes or cupcakes with pink strawberry icing for older girls

Food and drinks present another opportunity to add some color to your daughter’s pink birthday party. Instead of the traditional tropical punch, have pink lemonade instead. Guests will love it, and it’s the ideal drink for the color scheme. Have some cookies available and use pink frosting to cover them. To make them more interesting, add some white or hot pink sprinkles on top. You’ll want to have ice cream with the cake—strawberry is ideal for the occasion.

Your little girl is never too old for candy, and there are several varieties available in pink. Rock candy sticks are fairly easy to find and so is bubble gum. Large jars of pink bubble gum can add pops of color and make the perfect birthday party treat for girls with a sweet tooth and their friends. Just make sure the jars are plastic and not glass, as the kids could bump into them or drop them when getting their share. Also, why not add a bouquet of pink lollipops to the table for each guest. This makes for great decor and most kids love these tasty treats.

Pink birthday cards designs and banners are excellent accessories for the party. Add them to the gift table and the cake table. Hang banners in the entryways to greet guests or on the wall of the main party room. Take time to personalize them with pictures of the birthday girl and special messages to make the cards memorable. You’ll need to do this a few weeks in advance to ensure they arrive in time for the party. If you’re planning to print them yourself, make sure you have enough ink and the right card stock.

There are several costumes and outfits available for your pink princess. If she’s into dance or the arts, you could add a tutu to her clothes for a cute pink accent. Tiaras are also popular accessories for girls’ birthday parties, and you could even purchase a few for the guests as well. If you do decide to have a room full of tiara wearing party goers, be sure to purchase a different color for the other girls. Also, sparkle or glitter makeup, pink chapsticks, and pink nail polish can often tie the costumes together and add something special to the dress up activity.
Most little girls love feather boas, because they’re fun to dress up in and play pretend. Have a few available at the party or purchase just one for the birthday girl. This is a simple party idea that parents often overlook when they’re out shopping for costumes. A pink cowboy hat could also be used to add some flair to the birthday gear.

- Silver: similar to white, this color adds a royal flair

Patterns can help add interest to your little girl’s pink birthday party decor. Polka dots are popular and look good in pink. Add some black dots in the mix and you have an iconic look. Pink stars and flowers would look good as a napkin pattern, or you can add a pink zebra-striped tablecloth. When deciding where to add patterns, look for areas that guests will have direct contact with. It’s nice to decorate the whole house for her birthday party, but you want the decor to be seen and admired by everyone.
