pinwheel party ideas

Pinwheels have been a really popular party trend lately, and I love the idea of using one of these fun Pinwheel Mobiles as creative party decor for everything from baby & bridal showers to birthday parties.

They’d look great hanging over a table, a dessert buffet, or really any area in the party space... and if the celebration is a baby shower (like this Pinwheels and Pom Poms theme), this would also double as a fun gift for mom-to-be!

These particular mobiles are from Etsy shop mamax2, and there are so many colors & patterns available!

I’m especially loving this striped pink & black mobile for a lingerie or Paris-themed bridal shower (like this Flirty French Candy or Parisian theme)…

…and this red, white, and blue version would even work for 4th of July parties!

    I did a similar red, white, and blue pinwheel for a Dr. Suess, Thing 1 and Thing 2 first birthday party for twins. I must say, the pinwheels are SUCH a hit for people who haven’t seen them since childhood!

    I absolutely love pinwheels; there is something so fun and childlike about them. My favorite is the red, white and blue!

    How great! These are great for party decorations, indeed, but would also make for a fantastically whimsical playroom! Can you imagine how fun it would be to cover a ceiling in these things?

    I’m LOVING the pinwheels right now! I recently did a pinwheel and purple party for my sister’s birthday. I ended up keeping a ton of pinwheels even after the party was over!
