Pinwheel Party DIY Ideas

Whether you’re finding the perfect theme for a kids party or a baby shower, paper pinwheels are so inspiring. Cupcake wrappers, pinwheel candies and favor boxes in custom colors add to the fun and are perfect for any age.

BUT, if you consider pinwheels to be a wee bit on the juvenile side, check back next week for a shabby chic paper rosette bridal party that will make you swoon – it’s the grown up version of pinwheels!


Two more delicious designs from Cupcake Social. Do pop on over to their shop and browse through the adorable decor! Don’t forget, 20% for PDB readers that mention ‘HOLIDAY’ at checkout!

And finally, how great is this kid’s party inspiration board below? Deep Sky Blue rocked my world with this perfect pinwheel palooza ready to go – isn’t it adorable?

    I want to do a pinwheel party so bad for my duaghter’s next birthday, but I haven’t been able to find any plates or napkins to match. Seems I’m late on the pinwheel idea. I love the ones in pic #5, but of course, they’re no longer available. I found some cute pinwheel plates and napkins on pinterest, but the only thing left in the set that’s still in stock on websites are the napkins – no plates. I’ve searched all over and can’t find anything else. I’m so disappointed!

    I just stumbled across this great blog and saw one of my banners in an inspiration board. It was a fun and colourful bunting made for Hunter’s birthday (son of the fab Momma behind RandomNeuralFirings.net). Thanks for including it amongst all these other super Etsy sellers.
