Green and Gold is soooo Australian Olympics, but if you love the colours and still would like to use them for a celebration coming up, here is a great way to have a Green and Gold themed party as featured on Oh It’s Perfect – have a mint green and gold pastel party!
Perfect for a baby shower, birthday party or high tea, there is something soothing and enjoyable about pastel colours, and mint green is one of my favourites! Mixing it with a pastel colour base like ivory and a stunning light gold will turn any drab green and gold themed party into a fabulous soiree!
Pinwheels and pom poms are a number one decorational piece for any party, and getting a variety of pinwheels in mint green, ivory and gold are sure to lighten up any dessert table. Making your own pinwheels and sticking a white label in the middle is a great way to bring the wall behind the table onto the actual table, as well as tell your guests what they are eating too!
Use cute candle holders, vases and old draws and spray paint them a light gold to use as cake stands and candy holders. Super easy and super cute!
When getting together some foods to make for your dessert table, focus on how sweet the table looks in the pastel colours. Small, sweet style foods would go well on any pastel coloured table, so mint green iced cupcakes in a gold tin foil packaging, and gold edible decorations on top would be a must have!
You could also go for mint green and white marshmallows, turkish delight and coconut ice, as well as mint green meringues. The sky is the limit!
One special dessert I love the look of is creating a mint mousse to be served in jam jars! Jam jars are the greatest thing to use at a party because you can use them for so many different things, such as food service, gift giving, birthday cake serving, utensils, decorations etc.
This particular party served up some amazing looking mint mousse and made some super cute gold pin wheels to stick to the top of the lid to keep the pinwheel theme present in every aspect. Attach a super cute mint green and gold painted striped spoon to the jar and you have an awesome dessert table feature that guests will hate to open, but not enough to ignore the deliciousness inside!
Vintage paper straws are also a very big item on the dessert table circuit right now, so getting green and white striped straws and adding a bit of gold bling is an easy and affordable way to spice up your drinks! Super cute!
