Pizza Party Decoration Ideas
It’s hard for me to pick a place to start because this party has so many delightful decor details I want you to see! But, let’s start with the party’s drink bar and welcome sign because it’s a true focal point and the perfect photo op spot!
First, let’s talk about the amazing Pizzeria Backdrop by Fancy Fabric and Props! It’s an ideal way to easily transform your space and set the stage for a festive theme! Add in a bar cart, custom sign and flowing balloon garland in greens, reds and golds and you’re on your way to something really special!
Moving on to the main dining table, traditional “pizzeria” colors were carried through with a red tablecloth, gold silverware, black glassware and a custom pizza slice name card topped each place setting.
The centerpiece was defined with Kraft paper, large black candles, white flowers and topped with a delectable assortment of dishes forming one giant grazing board! Take a tip from the design and remember to always vary the heights of your serving pieces – place some food on platters, others on tiered trays… the height adds visual interest and keeps the eye moving down the length of your table.
Another decor element we loved at this party was the playful signage found throughout the decor… funny sayings, bright lights and Vanilla Ice references are always appreciated!
Build Your Own Pizza Table
If you’re hosting a “make your own pizza” party, this clearly is the main activity at your event! So don’t hold back – go big like they did here! A full table totally dedicated to the pizza making process will undoubtedly surprise and delight your guests! At each station, guests found their very own custom apron, pizza tray, rolling pin, rolling mat, and of course pizza dough!
Topped with a red and white checked tablecloth and Kraft paper table runner, the toppings for the Build Your Own Pizza bar were gorgeously displayed down the center of the table. I love using Kraft paper for table runners because you can write labels directly on it – it beautifully adds to your design and with cute sayings like “Let’s Get Saucy,” it also makes everyone smile!
After guests rolled their dough and topped their pizzas, they brought them back to the pizza oven to cook before enjoying dinner as a group.
I know we talked about the lovely drink bar first thing, but if you’re wondering what beverage to serve at a pizza party, you can’t go wrong with sangria! I love the pomegranate seeds sprinkled into the glasses too, so it’s easy for guests to pour and go!
Pizza Party Favors
Finally, what’s a party without favors?! And of course, the perfect favor box for a pizza party is an actual pizza box! Beautifully wrapped up in twine with a custom thank you tag (this similar customizable thank you tag from Lilacs & Charcoal would be perfect too). And no, these weren’t for leftover pizza, each box was chock full of sweet treats like Cracker Jacks, candy and custom pizza shaped cookies!
I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to throw my own Adult Pizza Party in the backyard! Doesn’t this looks like so much fun?! I hope you were able to pull tons of inspiration for your next celebration from this party! Be sure to Pin this post to your Party Planning board so you can come back to check out all the details.
