Party Like a Pineapple | A Tropical 25th Birthday Party10:18 AMC Riches
Hey guys, I'm so beyond excited to share with you this party I styled for my younger sister's 25th birthday!
As you probably know, pineapples are EVERYWHERE these days, and I've been dying to style a fun themed party using our latest pineapple printables! So when my little sis came over (from Rio) for her birthday a few weeks ago, we couldn't pass up the chance to party like pineapples ;)
Pineapple Birthday Party Inspiration
We organized a dinner party with close family and friends in her honor. My other sister also was also down here from London as it was the first time in years that we were all together, so it really was a double celebration!
Inspired by Rio and the Brazilian colors (green and yellow) this pineapple party is full of all things tropical. The color palette for the party was set by the the vibrant and colorful tones of Brazil, with gold and yellow touches here and there.
Here are some easy tips for planning a perfect, effortless pineapple themed birthday party!
Pineapple Birthday Party DIY Decorations
DIY Tropical Balloon & Fronds Centerpiece
We went with a very relaxed and casual vibe, true to Brazilian style!
The dinner party table was styled with a gorgeous but super easy to re-create, green foliage and yellow balloon centerpiece. They balloon garland was adorned with Monstera leaves and palm fronds. We used faux tropical leaves to create an everlasting display that would keep better (not to mention less costly), but really; it was great quality greenery that seemed almost real!
This ensured the arrangement stayed looking “fresh” for longer and was great way to inject some instant color to the table without much effort. I'll be sharing a full DIY tutorial later in the week, so watch this space!
Pineapple Birthday Party Printables
DIY Pineapple Birthday Party Invitations
Designing the printable pineapple invites was one of my favorite elements! Having only a few guests over meant we could email some of them, so no need to print too many, which is perfect when you have printable invitations! ;)
For the mailed invites we placed them in bright yellow envelopes with a cute party like a pineapple printable tag as envelope seals.
DIY Pineapple Dinner Party Place Mats
Using the printable scrapbook paper designs, I printed place mats onto an A3 paper at my local print shop. They were the perfect backdrop to my modern, bright yellow dinner plates!
We then adorned each place setting with gold flatware, cute and printable pineapple shaped favor boxes filled with pineapple and coconut flavored Brazilian toffee for guests to take home, and a pretty printable menu card announcing the dinner's courses.
Pineapple Birthday Party Tropical Dinner Party Menu
For the dinner party menu, we kept it easy, delicious and fresh - with lots of tropical Brazilian flavors and inspired dishes.
Dinner Menu Starter Course
We served our guests a refreshing and easy to make starter of Pineapple Caprese Salad. I may share the recipe here on the blog soon, but it's essentially a regular Caprese salad where we substitute pineapple for the tomatoes. Everyone loved the sweetness and refreshing switch-up to this recipe!
Dinner Menu Main Course
For the main course I made a tasty but super easy, one-pot Brazilian shrimp stew with coconut milk and cassava root sauce, known as 'BOBÓ DE CAMARÃO'.
It's a perfect summer dinner dish served with rice as a side. It taste like tropical paradise in your mouth, and ideal for a special occasion like this! Again, I may share a recipe later and will link back or update this post, k?
Pineapple Themed Cocktails & Drinks Bar
In true relaxed form, we kept the desserts course super easy and more convivial with a 'help-yourself' desserts and drinks bar. There was even a cute printable party sign to let guests know that! ;)
It's my absolute favorite thing to style when entertaining a crowd because it leaves you (the hostess) free to enjoy the party and mingle with your guests!
Of course, it’s NOT a proper pineapple birthday party without a mandatory pineapple signature cocktail!! We made this tasty pineapple rum tropical sangria (I shared recipe on the blog here) with slices of real fruit pineapple and lemons, ready for guests to fill their cute glasses - We adorned each glass with a golden party straw and cute printable pineapple cut-out stickers from the kit!
Pineapple Dessert Station
The desserts bar display is also the perfect backdrop for a fun party photo booth, and we had garden chairs indoors so everyone could sit nearby and enjoy the treats and catch up on all the gossip ;)
Desserts included pineapple cupcakes with pina colada frosting, pineapple and green tea macarons, and a delicious Brazilian tropical fruit salad with papaya and mangoes and pineapples (of course), which we served in handy mini ice cream tubs with lids (easy to prepare in advance and to serve!). We added a printable sticker to the front of each tub, glitter gold party circles to the lid and tied the bamboo spoons with green twine for the cuteness factor!
DIY Pineapple Birthday Party Photo Booth & Fun
You may have seen our DIY pineapple honeycomb party decorations here on the blog a few weeks ago, right?! Well, they were the perfect photo booth prop to help capture all those fun memories!
We also added more greenery to create a truly tropical vibe! All that was left to do was to pose like a pineapple! ;)
