In the spirit of Spring, we thought we’d share a cute Pinwheel Party idea board with you! There are SO many amazing things you can do with pinwheels, but I wanted to focus on the party planning aspect, so I kept the most relevant ones for on here. If you want to see all my pinwheel discoveries, you can visit my Pinwheel Party Pinterest Board here.
The fun thing about Pinwheels is that they are appropriate for any gender and any age. You can make pinwheels fun and silly with bright rainbow colors and tons of crazy patterns or you can keep it classy and adult oriented using pastels, simple brown paper, or recycled book pages.
Pinwheels are appropriate for all events and have been popular at weddings, showers, birthdays, and most celebrations. Today we’re showing you how some fun pinwheel ideas can coordinate with DimplePrints’ pinwheel invitations for a child party. We went with the bright rainbow color scheme with this board because it’s spring and it’s rained here for weeks straight, so I need something happy and fun to cheer me up
1. DimplePrints’ Pinwheel Invitation comes in a variety of colors and fonts and is completely customized for your party plans. There are gender neutral color schemes, as well as boy and girl party invitations, as well.
2. Pinwheel Plates (found at LA Times, but originally at Target) would make an amazing party feature and something that could be used for other occasions, such as a circus party.
3. Martha Stewart shows us how to fold napkins into a pinwheel shape, something sure to spruce up a party table. In this photo they use bandanna handkerchiefs for the napkins, but other bright patterned clothes could be used to match your party decor. Here’s another cool link for a neat pinwheel napkin idea from the Prettier Party.
4. Polka Dot market sells their honeycomb daisies, that could pass for pinwheels that could hang over a dessert table or from the ceiling of a room to create whimsy and fun. They sell them in tons of different colors and for less than $2.50/pinwheel, it’s not a bad deal!
