Pineapple Party Invitation
Set the sophistication level high before the party starts with a golden metallic Pineapple Postcard Invitation and even though these invitations are postcards, they come with delicate pink envelopes to keep party details hidden.
Pineapple Party Decorations
Keeping décor elements within a set color and pattern scheme will ensure that the sophistication level stays high. We took our design cues from this Pineapple Party set and used shades of pink, green, metallic gold and black and whites stripes in a large horizontal pattern.
- Start with a backdrop of black and white stripes. We covered an insulation board from the home improvement store with striped bulletin board paper.
- Surround the board with a plethora of Colorful Paper Fans, including a handful from this Aloha Paper Fan Decorating Kit.
- Layer a Pineapple Party Tablecloth over a Solid Gold Tablecloth for an elegant look. Add even more style with a runner cut from striped bulletin board paper.
- Natural additions to any party will always add texture and warmth so make sure to include a few real pineapples to the tabletop décor.
- This Pineapple Honeycomb Centerpiece has all the right colors and pattern. Give it more prominence by setting it atop a wrapped paper Mache box top on a tall golden cake stand.
Balloon wreaths are so on-trend right now and are fairly easy to construct. Follow the DIY here to create this stunning version we hung center stage. Giant Palm Leaves and golden letters from the Aloha Paper Fan Decorating Kit combine with small balloons and a hula hoop for great impact and a sense of fun.
Layers are not just for awesome 80’s hair. Layering tabletop elements bring sophistication and depth to your tablescape.
- Start with a black and white striped table runner then scatter Giant Palm Leaves along the center.
- Next, anchor each place setting with a Gold Glitz 14” Placemat then stack atop of it a Black Plastic 10” Plate, a Bright Pink 9” Paper Plate and finally a Pineapple Party 7” Plate. Transform this Pineapple Shaped Banner into whimsical utensil wraps by inserting silverware handles through the ribbon slits.
- Add a pale pink Pineapple Party Beverage Napkin and a Pineapple Luncheon Napkin for double the mess control. Finish each place setting with a Pineapple Party 12oz Cup, Black Striped Paper Straw and Pineapple Favor Box.
Golden Pineapple Food
Keep the party food simple … if it doesn’t have pineapple in it or look like a pineapple, don’t offer it. : )
- Give Pina Colada Cupcakes a pineapple makeover by adding melted candy wafer-shaped pineapple toppers.
- Pineapple Fluff is even tastier when served in these shiny You Had Me at Aloha Plastic Tumblers. Don’t forget to add golden pineapple tent cards, from this You Had Me at Aloha Buffet Decorating Kit, to your tabletop so that guests know what kinds of delicacies they will be enjoying.
- A bucket full of Striped Lollipops is a quick and easy way to add more color and sweetness to the table.
- Transform golden wrapped candy truffles into miniature pineapples by adding short lengths of rolled Green Crepe Streamers. (TIP: secure toppers to candy using Glue Dot Adhesive … hot glue will melt the candy.)
Golden Pineapple Activity
Games are always fun but try keeping guests busy with a less competitive alternative. Show everyone how to mix up some Pineapple Coconut Sugar Scrub then let them take a batch home in one of these Perfectly Plain Glass Apothecary Jars.
Golden Pineapple Favor
Gift a memorable trinket that will be both useful and glamorous. Fill a Pineapple Favor Box with a golden pineapple bottle opener so that each time guests need to open something fizzy, they’ll think of fond times shared with you.
