Nothing screams summer like bright colors, flamingos and pineapples, and that's exactly what we were going for with our Flock of Fun Summer Party!
Jen T. by Design had an adorable flamingo party suite that coordinated perfectly with our theme and the décor flowed easily from there. We gave mini lawn ornament flamingos from Oriental Trading a little more personality by spray-painting them each a different bright color, then fancied them up a bit more with flowers and feathers, of course! The colors in the chevron gift-wrap turned table runner tied everything together as if it was made just for the event. The pineapples were given a little pizazz with confetti to play off the shape and colors of the balloons in the arch over the dessert table. As luck would have it, Target’s Pillow Fort line had a flamingo shower curtain that worked perfectly as our photo-op backdrop – all it needed was a banner and some tropical crepe paper flowers to blend seamlessly with the theme.
The day was chock full of merriment crafts, dancing, karaoke, games, giggles, and most importantly friendship and fun!
What People Drank
Pink lemonade and water
After working up an appetite dancing and crafting, the girls noshed on their choice of cupcakes or cake, and pink lemonade. We added hand-painted green meringues to the tops of the lemon cupcakes to mimic the look of a pineapple, and decorated a naked cake purchased from Target.
Party favors were darling lollipops decorated as flamingos and pineapples.
Activities / Games
To shake their sillies out, our little guests played ring toss with the larger sized flamingos (who also stood guard over the desserts), and hula danced. For their take-home crafts they decorated aqua lace mermaid crowns and felt pineapple clips.
