One Color Birthday Theme

Colorwheel with crayons

Fun ideas for a One Color Themed Birthday Party.

Mix and match these ideas to create your own special party. 

This is a fun party and very easy to do. Choose one color and then decorate in only shades of that color.

This theme works well with Birthstones or choosing the color of the birthday child’s room so they can use the items in their room after the party.

See our Birthstone theme party for more ideas.

Send out solid color party invitations with the party information written in the same color ink as the card. 

On the invitation ask guests to dress in the party color you choose. Tell them the person who wears the most items in that color will win a prize.

Include shades of confetti that match your One Color party theme in the invitations.

Decorations are easy with the One Color Party theme.  Choose a color and buy everything you can in shades of that color.  Plates, napkins, cups, tablecloths, decorations, confetti, invitations ... everything! 

 Buy off-beat and fun decorations in your color too.  Things like colored boa's, large paper fans, Chinese lanterns, etc. will make the party look extra festive.   On the cake table place a tablecloth in your color and then sprinkle with confetti in different shades.   Then cover with a clear plastic tablecloth.  

Fun Ideas

Fill a glass jar (that has a secure lid) with lots of one color of candy. You can make the candy different types or all the same such as skittles or M&M’s. Count the candies as you place them in the jar.

Set the jar on a table with pieces of paper and a basket.

Ask guests as they arrive to guess how many pieces of candy are in the jar.

Have them write down their guess on the papers with their names and place in the basket.

The person closest to the right number wins the jar of candy.
