Single Color Sensations!

Yes, you heard it right; you can create party decorations that pop with just one color. I love the idea of single color parties, but I haven’t seen many out there. I am hoping to start a new trend with you right now. Here are a few simple guidelines.

Pick a color your child loves. You can use a really saturated tone or a pastel palette like this gorgeous pink dessert table below—either way can be beautiful.

Many of you may ask if making everything the same color is just too much, and with certain colors, it might be. So if you’re on the fence, using neutral baked goods in cream or white can tone things down but will still make your color stand out.

Using the same colored glassware is another breathtaking statement. I love all these vintage yellow cake plates. Many of these items can be found on craigslist, etsy or eBay.

Apothecary jars and vases filled with candy in your color choice look great set on top of a crisp, white table cloth.

Lastly, you can use your color and create layers in different tones.

So what color is your little one crushing on? I know my daughter is a pink and purple kind of girl!

I love using one color in different shades for my parties. Especially during times when I just don't have the time and energy to think of a good theme that everyone will enjoy.

Well, I think that if I ever have a single color-themed party, then I should pick something that's not common. Like celadon green. Yeah, maybe I should just go for that!

Great post! Just had a Blue Rio party for my 4 year old and getting ready for a blue Avatar party for my 9 year old coming up! Good thing I happen to LOVE blue!

Using single colors makes such a bold statement! I love these parties, especially the blue set up, that would look lovely as a paper invitation too.
