Pink Ribbon Parties for Breast Cancer Awareness and Survivor Celebrations

In Indiana, our Race for the Cure is held in the spring. The Indianapolis event is huge and growing. October is the month for Breast Cancer Awareness, but regardless of the season we can always take the time to honor the survivors in our lives (who among us has not been touched in some way by this disease?). Perhaps you'll consider putting together your own event this fall to honor a sister, friend, or mother. Last spring during the race, I ate at a restaurant owned by a breast cancer survivor. The entire pub was bedecked in pink to honor her fight. It was amazing!

These nesting bowls (above) help raise funds for breast cancer, and would make a fabulous door prize at your event, and the pink ribbon fondue pot will be a welcome sight in any crowd of ladies -- bring on the chocolate!

Above, how about customized pink bowling shirts?!? If you and your girls are on a Race for the Cure team, these would be a fantastic show of support!

If your pink party involves pampering, this invitation (below) from tiny*prints can be reworded to be appropriate for your event:

If your pink party is in honor of a woman you and your guests love, what better way to express well-wishes than with this platter! Usually used at weddings, this would be an awesome way to show support while doubling as a guest book/keepsake!

These glass vases can be personalized with a message (other than "Daddy's Little Girl") and would make beautiful centerpieces if you have more than one table for your Pink Ribbon party. You can raffle them off to raise funds, and fill them with your favorite pink flowers!

I use these individual tea sachets all the time. They're really cool, and the tea is nice. They'll look super cute at your place-settings! A luxe touch for your luncheon.


  1. I love those nesting bowls, Kitty! What a wonderful gift idea....

  2. I loved them too, Averill. They look really cool from above, like a blooming flower! Thanks for popping by!

  3. Kitty-Some lovely ideas and I love anything pink.

  4. SR2: you are the ultimate girly girl! You would love my pink pyjamas with the little baby geisha motif! Thanks for coming by; now I'm off to visit you!

  5. Love these suggestions. I hope to use some at our scrap for the cure crop. :)

  6. Dee Dee! Scrap for the Cure! I love it!
