Listen, there’s just something so appealing and downright drool-worthy about planning a party with a massive twist!
The crazier and more creative the twist, the better.
These days, I’m obsessed with throwing color-themed parties! When it comes to such parties, pink is an incredibly popular choice to work with.
Prepping for a pink-themed party is also incredibly fun, especially when it comes to deciding what to serve the guests.
Naturally, all the food has to be pink, which is where the true fun lies! There are just so many pink foods that you can easily add to your party’s menu.
18 Pink Foods to Serve at a Party
So, let’s take a look at some of the most scrumptious foods that you can serve at a pink color-themed party:
1. No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake
I’m a lover of all cheesecakes, but strawberry cheesecakes have a special little (read: huge) corner in my heart!
It’s also a delicious food that is pink. To add the sought-after pink hue to the cheesecake, all you have to do is cook some halved strawberries in a saucepan.
Add the strawberries with some water and sugar and let the mixture cook until it forms a puree. Make sure to squish the strawberries with a spatula so that they don’t remain solid.
Add the delicious puree to your cheesecake mix and voila, you have a delectable strawberry cheesecake to add to your pink color-themed party!
2. Strawberry Ice Cream
Who doesn’t love ice cream? It’s a great hit at parties and always a solid option for dessert. Moreover, strawberry ice cream will go equally well on pink-themed birthday and bridal shower menus!
The best part about ice cream is that you can just go to the store and buy some before the party.
3. Pink Doughnuts
Doughnuts are another hit party food, regardless of the kind of party it is. You can cover your doughnuts with a pink glaze or you can make pink doughnuts at home!
All you have to do is add the pink food color of your choice to the doughnut mix and bake the doughnuts.
If you plan ahead you can also ask your favorite donut shop to make you a batch of pink donuts. They would be happy to hook you up.
4. Pink Macarons
There’s just something so sophisticated and regal about macarons or as I like to call them, the French equivalent of cookies.
Prepare a delicious macaron mixture and add a hot pink or champagne pink food color to it! Serve the delicious pink macarons at your themed party.

5. Pink M&Ms
There’s just something so sophisticated and regal about macarons or as I like to call them, the One of the coolest things that ever happened to M&M’s is when they started making them in a variety of colors.
No pink party would be complete without a bowl of pink M&M’s. You can order them here.
What has a nice pinkish hue and is a fish?
I believe that you simply can’t go wrong with salmon. It’s easy to cook but also looks fancy, which makes it the perfect party food. If you want your fish to retain that juiciness, then your best bet is to bake it with simple seasoning and some lemon juice.
You could make this lemon and dill salmon recipe. Also, consider smoked salmon. It is beautiful in color and of course, taste as well.
7. Beet and Buttermilk Soup
Doughnuts are another hit party food, regardless of the kind of party it is. You can cover your If you’re looking for a savory food that is pink, then look no further than a delicious beet and buttermilk soup. It has a vibrant, hot pink color that is just perfect for a pink color-themed party.
All you need to prepare this delectable soup with lots of fresh flavors are some beers, carrots, dill, lemon juice, chicken stock, garlic, and buttermilk.

8. Watermelon Feta Salad
This is easily one of the most beautiful pink salads that you will ever serve. The watermelon is literally the bowl.
If you are serving this at a larger party, I would recommend that you buy full-size watermelons and carve them up. Then you can serve the salad in the watermelon shell family style.
The arugula and feta make this simple salad delicious and refreshing at the same time.

9. Potato and Beet Salad
Ever heard about a pink salad?
Well, if you don’t believe me, then you can try the potato and beet salad. There’s nothing that you won’t love about this salad.
It’s easy to prepare, looks delicious, and tastes even yummier! Moreover, the beets give it that amazing pink color that you want for your party.

10. Oven-roasted radishes
Oven-roasted radishes have this beautiful pink hue. They are beautiful on the plate and taste delicious. It is difficult to beat that perfect combination.
Radishes are cheap and super easy to make. We bake ours in the oven but you could also roast them in an air fryer if you would like to keep from heating up the house.

11. Grilled tomatoes
Now, I will admit that these are a bit more red than pink but they are so tasty that they are worth considering as an option.
The only real problem with grilled tomatoes is that they go quickly. Every single time that we serve them at a party they go really quickly.
My advice is to grill far more than you think that you should.

Lychee can be a bit difficult to get your hands on but if you can find them at your local specialty grocery store, I recommend serving them at your next party or event.
Odds are good that people may not know what they are or how to eat them. This will be a fun experience for most people.
They are best eaten raw. You simply have to peel the rind and then eat the fruit whole. Just make sure to spit out the pit or remove it before eating the flesh of the fruit.

Sometimes the most simple dish is also the favorite dish. A bowl of fresh and beautiful strawberries is always a delight.
The key to serving fresh strawberries is to serve more than you think that people will eat. My experience is that is if there is a lot in a large bowl people are more likely to pile them on their plate.
Be sure to wash them and dry them in advance. If I am serving a bowl of them at a party, I generally don’t cut the stems off. They are prettier with the stems in my opinion.
Even though Rosé is a beverage and not a pink food, it’ll go well with all the other pink foods that you’ll serve at your party.
This is particularly true if you want to throw a pink-themed bachelorette party! But hey, just a brunch is a great time for a Rose too.
Honestly, it is a super versatile drink!
16. Pink Grapefruit Martini
You can use fresh-squeezed pink grapefruit or you can be like me and buy those little cans. You can also make these into virgin martinis by replacing the vodka with club soda.
The best part is that these are so easy to make that you can make them on the fly as guests arrive.
Check out our recipe here.
17. Cape cod cocktail
The cape cod may be one of the most famous pink cocktails served. It only requires a few ingredients. It is made with vodka, cranberry juice, lime, and simple syrup.
If you use a sweetened cranberry juice then you may not want to add the simple syrup. I suggest making a test drink to decide on the level of sweetness that you prefer.
I like tart drinks so I go for less sweetener but not everyone agrees with me on this.
Check out the full recipe here.
18. Passion fruit tea
Cocktails are nice but some parties call for someone non-alcoholic and if that is your kind of pink party, then try this passion fruit tea recipe.
This recipe is super simple. It only requires 5 ingredients and one of those is water. So you will need to get some Tazo passion fruit tea, lemonade, sugar and vanilla.
