Pinwheels theme

This cute and unique theme is perfect to bring out the joy and fun of being a child! Little one’s love holding a twirling pinwheel in their hand so why not base a celebration around this?

Pinwheels are also great to team up with another item for example balloons, ribbons or lollipops. They are also versatile little items which you could work into most party themes!

Given the uniqueness of this theme, there is not a lot of specific party items available however all you really need are some pinwheels to really bring this theme alive!

I haven’t included some of my usual categories of tableware and favour packaging in this post as this theme could take on any colour scheme and doesn’t have as many theme related items available – however please see my previous posts for many different tableware and favour packaging ideas!

Invitations/Printables

Choosing a great set of printables can really help you with decorating your party, especially for a theme such as pinwheels where there isn’t alot of theme specific items available.

Twirling & tutu’s are some girl’s most favourite things – and if that sound’s like your daughter then perhaps this theme is perfect for her.

I hope you find some inspiration and products in this blog post for your girl’s ballerina celebration.

Enjoy!
