It’s my birthday! To celebrate, I’m bringing you a fun series of posts all week long, starting with this easy pink and gold birthday party idea.

You may have noticed that I love decorating, and coming up with creative party and decor ideas definitely goes along with that. For birthdays past, I’ve celebrated with a French Theme (still a fave), a Fiesta Theme, and many more festive ideas.

This year, I was inspired by two of my favorite colors: pink and gold!

This festive pink and gold party theme, featuring DIY tissue puffs, a marble backdrop, and a chocolate sweets tables, is a cheery addition to any fiesta! | Hello Little HomeLet’s start with the decor for this pink and gold birthday party. I didn’t want to spend tons of money, but I still wanted to do something super festive.

My inspiration was this stunning pink and gray marble paper from Paper Source. I’m kind of obsessed with it! Each piece has a unique swirling texture.

Don’t like pink? Check out Paper Source’s website for lots of other marble paper options, including this same pattern in a gorgeous black, gold and silver color scheme.

Since the paper was so eye-catching, I decided to use it as the backdrop for my table. I only needed one sheet for my small space, but if you have a larger table, line up multiple sheets of this pretty paper behind it. You could even frame the paper for a more finished look.

These poms were so simple to make (more info below), and I love how they created a focal point for my table, along with the marble paper.

I also hung a pom on the front of my table and scattered smaller poms across the top.

Unfortunately, I can’t find the exact table runner I used, but this one looks fairly similar. You could also make your own from this gold chevron paper, get this gold sequin chevron runner (or go full on sequins) for extra bling, or do gold stripes or a confetti pattern. Lots of options, and they’d all look great!

To make your own, first find a round bowl or glass that’s the size you’d like your topper to be. Place the bowl face down on a piece of card stock, then trace around it. I used this vibrant fuchsia card stock.

This festive pink and gold party theme, featuring DIY tissue puffs, a marble backdrop, and a chocolate sweets tables, is a cheery addition to any fiesta! | Hello Little HomeFor the lettering, I lightly wrote Happy Birthday in the circle using a pencil. When I was satisfied with how the letters looked, I went back over the lines once with my fave Uni-Ball White Gel Pen. Once the ink has dried, you can erase any pencil marks that are still showing.

Then, to give it a hand lettered look, I went back over the letters again, thickening all the down strokes. I also added a simple design around the edge of the circle.

Finally, tape a bamboo skewer to the back of your topper with clear tape. Tip: if both sides of your topper will be visible, sandwich the skewer in between the two paper layers instead.

Easy Pink and Gold Birthday Party / Food Ideas

Easy Pink and Gold Birthday Party! Celebrate someone special with these fun, easy DIY birthday party decor ideas. This festive pink and gold party theme, featuring DIY tissue puffs, a marble backdrop, and a chocolate sweets tables, is a cheery addition to any fiesta! | Hello Little HomeIt isn’t a party without great food, and this easy pink and gold birthday party was no exception! I’m a huge chocolate lover, so I decided to do a chocolate sweets table.

When you’re setting up a food table, try to use varying heights. This will help create interest and keep your table from looking too flat. I like to set out my serving dishes (sans food), and move things around until I like how it looks, adding risers and other stands, if needed, along the way.

On the left side of my table, I used a short marble cake stand for my cookie cake. In the middle, I placed a low platter of donuts, and on the end I have a tall cupcake stand. The varying heights kept the display interesting and my guests’ eyes moving across the table.

An easy trick for creating a tall stand is to place a glass jar in the center a large plate, then top the jar with a smaller plate.

This created an instant tall cake stand which was perfect for showing off my cupcakes and creating those varying height layers.

Okay, enough about the display … let’s get to those chocolate desserts!

I’ve always wanted a cookie cake for my birthday, and this was finally the year my dreams came true (ha). You have to try this recipe. It’s rich, decadent, and a hit with everyone who tries it.

I also made these yummy Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes.

It has a depth of flavor and a touch of heat that’s totally unique and delicious.

Since I put most of my effort into my cookie cake, I cheated a little on these Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes. Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare it as directed (eggs, oil, etc.)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon, plus extra for serving
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • 2 containers cream cheese frosting

To make the Mexican Hot Chocolate Cupcakes:

  1. Prepare the cake mix as directed, adding the cinnamon and cayenne along with the other ingredients.
  2. Pour the mix into a lined cupcake pan.
  3. Bake according to package directions.
  4. Let cupcakes cool completely, then frost generously.
  5. Sprinkle cinnamon over the frosting. Tip: if you sprinkle the cinnamon through a fine mesh strainer, it will be look more even.

Don’t they look delish? They really were … and easy, too!

Here are more delicious chocolate recipes that would be perfect, too:

When it comes to drinks, my Raspberry French 75s or Spicy Palomas would both be delicious, plus they’re pink. For something nonalcoholic, you could make Strawberry Lemonade, or continue the chocolate theme with my Mexican Hot Chocolate.
