Pink and Orange Jubilee

Even the most upbeat bash needs a sugar coating. Create your base by covering a table with a solid-colored linen in a soft shade of blush. Stack cupcakes on cake stands, and fill apothecary and cookie jars with assorted colored candy. Add interest to the background by hanging oversized tissue fans in coordinating hues. For unexpected flair, work in subtle pops of turquoise into the set-up like on cupcake flags, treat seals, and satin ribbon wrapped around the dessert display.
