We hosted a flamingo themed pool party and it was an absolute blast! We were inspired by the darling, one footed stance birds because of their vibrant colors and just all around awesomeness! Read below for tips, ideas and inspiration to host your own flamingo themed pool party!
Create a colorful cocktail station: Talk about easy entertaining! Placed out grapefruit, orange and pineapple juices, as well as 3 spirits like gin, vodka and tequila. Guests can mix their own drinks making it easier on the host. Make sure you put out a cocktail jigger and shaker too! You can also place out fresh fruit to garnish.
Desserts: A party is not a party without dessert! For a frozen treat, serve strawberry milkshakes with chocolate sauce! They work perfectly with our flamingo theme! Flamingo shaped cookies were custom made just for our party and they were a hit! Also, I adore these pink and white striped marshmallows! We made chocolate chip cookie s’mores with them!
Florals: Flowers are everything! They instantly make the most charming decor. I also use my florist, who I adore, for my parties! Erin at White Fig Designs created the most stunning arrangement for our pool party and even made the yard flamingo a headpiece, haha!
Decor: It’s all in the details. From the tiniest flamingos to colorful straws and napkins. Having details that make up a cohesive theme at the party is important and always fun. Below is a list of some of the items we used.
