I am so excited to share with all of you my daughter Olivia’s Pinkalicious Birthday Party! It was a beautiful day filled with family and friends, lots of love and tons of fun! Read on for all of the details, and scroll to the bottom for all available free printables.
These were the invites I created and sent out:
We had such a Pinkalicious time! The little girls were all dolled up in their best pink outfits, including my little “Pinky”. Her dress was custom made by Willow Bean Studio:
Check out the little wings on the back:
I love that they aren’t large so they don’t get in the way.

Pink, pink and more pink was obviously the color of this Pinkalicious Party:
Streamers, tissue paper balls, and a wonderful birthday banner, pink lemonade, watermelon, strawberries, girl favors, cupcakes and the Pinkalicious book complete the tablescape.
The cupcakes were decorated by my cousin and myself. Vanilla cupcakes and frosting were colored pink with food coloring. We used red hots instead of cherries and red frosting for the swirls. I also made a small 4″ cake for my daughter.
For the Pink Cupcake Stand I simply three different sized boxes with wrapping paper and tied them with ribbon. Simple DIY cupcake picks were added for a little fun flair.
I purchased foam crowns and star wands at Target. The girls wore these throughout the party.
They were just as delicious as they look! Thank you so much to Sugarlily Cookie Company! Lisa and I traded services, I designed her new blog and she sent me 28 delicious cookies in exchange. And Lisa was so fabulous she also sent me some sample cookies, and let me tell you those were gone in 2 seconds flat. If you want to make a big statement, consider handing out cookies as favors. All of the adults turned into kids when I handed these out! And don’t think that more than a few didn’t open them up right then and there! Seriously, these things were VERY well received! For more information on Sugarlily Cookies stop by their blog or their facebook page.
I created the water bottle labels and printed them on full label sheets, cut them out and stuck them on. Don’t they look adorable?
The party favors were to cure the Pinkitis syndrome all the party-goers came down with at the party. Green ring pops, gum, kisses, peeps and andie mints were all packed inside. The boys also got some creepy green bugs and parachute army men. The bag toppers are sized to fit a regular Ziploc sandwich bag.

I gave my little nephew Conner this blue hat so he could play the part of Pinky’s brother, Peter.
Present time was a blast. It was a GORGEOUS spring day so we ended up doing everything outside, including eating cupcakes and strawberry ice cream, and even opening presents. My husband and a bunch of the uncles and grandpa’s and an aunt or two all played a game of basketball. There was lots of games of catch going on with the older cousins. The younger cousins and friends enjoyed the swing set, 4-wheeler and just plain running around in the warm, sunny outdoors!
Olivia loved her present from mom and dad! We couldn’t get her to come out of it! She literally stayed in her new little home for over an hour just playing!
Thanks to the hubby for putting this together and carrying it out to surprise our little princess. I used fake flowers from Joann’s (purchased for 50% off) to add a touch of color to the window boxes.
How many kids can you pack into a playhouse before the come bursting out? Answer: 8!
Happy 2nd Birthday to my littlest one! I love you so much and can’t believe you are growing so fast. You are a truly beautiful little girl, inside and out. You are strong and independent, but you are still my little cuddle-bug! Mom and Dad are so very proud of the little lady you are becoming!
