Pink Party

Olive is turning 5, so she gets to invite 5 friends to a party. After coming up with a new theme everyday for the last year, she has decided on a Pink Party and I'm making her stick to her guns, because I've got to get invitations out.

My 7 year old used to love pink but now swears allegiance to blue. What if Olive follows suite? This may be the last pink party I get to throw — might as well go all out.

I'm researching pink parties to get inspiration. I like the photo above from

that sounds like such a cute party! and i'm not even pink's hugest fan. but i have to say, i like pink a lot more than i did, oh, say, 7 months ago.

afton is a professional pink lover. she even coined the phrase "super pink" for wearing more than one pink article of clothing. i remember you having to talk maude into something blue not so long ago.

Pinkalicious is a cute book about pink AND cupcakes!

My older daughter loves pink. Unfortunately for her she has me and not Gabrielle for a mom. This means simple birthdays at the park rather than all those cute pink things. =)

now all you need is a few pink fatboys!
i just happened to go to the apartment of a new friend and what did she have lying there but a beautiful green fatboy like you had just written about! of course i tried it out, it was for a movie night so it was laying down and sooo comfy, you could move the little balls inside around to support you anyway you wanted to. the fabric reminded me of that on my timbuk2 messanger bag, which still looks brand new after 2 years of abuse so it seems like something that would hold up in the long term.

I recently went to a wedding with a pink theme...okay, I know that sounds beyond horrible...but it worked. Whimsical, fun, etc. They had pink drinks, pink cotton candy, pink cakes on every table, pink cup cakes everywhere, etc. Very fun!

Too bad those colored bubbles aren't on the market yet. Pink ones would be great. I "second" the pink cotton candy idea as well.

Also, you can go to M&M's website and make your own pink candies. Go here: and click on "Customize Your Candies." It's not cheap though...
