Pick a theme or color scheme.
Pinterest worthy parties have either a fun theme or a cohesive color scheme. If you choose to go with a simpler color scheme party, be sure to pick colors that complement each other. Pastels are always popular, but be creative! Try pairing one bold color, one neutral, and a few different shades of a third color to get a nice variety.
Create a board and pin ideas.
Seems pretty obvious that you'll have to create a Pinterest board! Pin parties that inspire you, DIY tutorials you'll be making, or color palettes that you want to be your focus. If something inspires you, even if you're not quite sure how, pin it on the board and see if you can incorporate it. For example, check out my Sugar Sweet Party Pinterest board to see how I planned out my 27th birthday party.
Focus on the little details.
Pinterest parties are full of whimsical details that make you want to look closer. Fun favors, sweet treats, and cute banners can really enhance the theme.
Create an epic party table.
Almost every party on Pinterest includes an elaborate party table. This table "sums up" the party, if you will. Place the table against a wall and create an interesting backdrop above it. Then cover the table with all your fun goodies and themed items. In this case, a smaller table might be better if you don't have too many items. Or, spread things out using larger platters to create the illusion of fullness.
Start small and work your way up.
This can mean just creating one really elaborate display or focusing on the party table. Whatever it is, give it your all and make it the focus piece.
Take well-lit photos in natural lighting.
Unless absolutely necessary, using flash is discouraged. It makes photos seem glaring. Instead, opt to take photos in natural lighting for the best effect. If that's not an option, use a tripod and longer shutter speed to mimic the effect.
Don't get discouraged.
Although it doesn't seem this way, throwing Pinterest worthy parties are hard! A lot of time, energy and especially money goes into them. And most parties you see online have hired a professional planner! Don't let someone else's end result discourage you from getting started. You could be as good as them someday!
