Think Pink Florals
Gerbera daisies are such a sweet and simple flower. As you can see in the picture from Project Wedding, they utilized the pink gerbera daisy both in a simple vase with a single stem, and as the place card holder. This simple idea would look adorable for a "Think Pink" brunch!
Think Pink Candy Buffet Bar
Pink Candy Bar-as seen on Elizabeth Anne Designs
I love this candy bar, especially all the fun pink and white candies. To do this at home, you'll need a fabulous tablecloth and an assortment of various glass containers. Mix and match the containers, using different heights and shapes, and fill with assorted candies. You can have this candy bar as a dessert table for the Think Pink Brunch, or you can have chinese takeout boxes in hot pink and use this table as a favor table for guests as they leave. Either way, who doesn't love candy!
This candy bowl below can be purchased from the Susan G. Komen shop. It would look great on your candy buffet as well.
Think Pink Cookies
As featured on Woman's Day, look at this adorable kit from King Arthur Flour. It includes all-natural vanilla sugar cookie mix, and everything you need to make pink ribbon cookies (the cookie cutter, white icing and pink food coloring). 10% of their sales go to support breast cancer research!
So, in this month of October, please don't forget to THINK PINK and support breast cancer research! Hopefully, with these Think Pink ideas, you can host a fabulous party in the process!
