They’re super stylish and made for mixing and matching – so read on and use our pastel party ideas as inspiration for your own party!
How to plan the perfect pastel party
Choose a color scheme
The first step towards planning your perfect pastel paradise party is choosing a color scheme. Choose a couple of anchor colors, then add a splash of white or gold to elevate your party to elegantly colorful. Pastel pink and gold is one of our favorite combos at the moment. These pastel (blush) pink and gold plates are a customer favorite!
Don't forget the matching cups and napkins!
Or go all out with this deluxe pastel party tableware set. It comes with two plate sizes, cups, forks, straws and napkins and serves 12 guests.
A more interesting alternative to choosing a color scheme would be to pick a pastel party theme and run with it. Here are some of the most deliciously trendy pastel themes:
Ice cream or sprinkles party
The next best thing to ice cream is an actual ice cream party! Who doesn't love the promise of endless servings of ice creams at an ice-cream decorated venue?
We love this theme because it fits easily into the paster color mood, is colorful and would get everyone (yes, everyone!) excited.
These plates, cups and napkins would look great at your sprinkles party.
Mint green and gold
What about mint green and gold? Mint green is one of those colors that is naturally and effortlessly pastel. No matter the celebration, this gorgeous color scheme will make your pastel party beautiful! Begin by adding these plates, cups and napkins.
One of the reasons we love a pastel party theme is that it’s hard to go wrong with it – whichever pastel plates, cups and napkins you choose, it is quite easy to glam them up and make them look coordinated. Gold and white matching products help with coordination and harmonizing your color scheme. These gold and white polka dot party bags will match whichever pastel color scheme you choose!
When it comes to decorations, less is more here too. Blocks of white will really make your pastel-colored decorations stand out.
We are definitely still also obsessed with confetti balloons! Choose a color that matches the rest of your party, then blow them up with helium to make a statement! We particularly love these giant gold and silver confetti balloons.
Something about the richness of the gold and silver oozes glam and elegance!
Want other colors? Peek into our confetti balloon collection and pick a couple of colours!
You could even serve a selection of sweet treats in these cute polka dot food trays (which are also available in a sprinkles design!)

Add some finishing touches to your pastel perfection party. This 15-foot true pastel balloon garland is the perfect decor focal point. It can be used to decorate your dessert table or be used to create an ice-cream stand. Either way, your guests will be drawn to this centerpiece. Expect large crowds here. It is too pretty to ignore!
Finally, these ice cream favor boxes can be given to guests on their way into the party or as they leave.
