Flamingo Party Theme

One of the latest trends for a kid’s party theme recently is the bold pink flamingo.

When I told hubby I was doing a blog post for a flamingo theme he didn’t quite get it ;)

However lots of people do ‘get it’ and are loving this fancy bird for a theme for a birthday party or baby shower.

You could use it as a stand alone theme or incorporate it into a tropical/Hawaiian theme or a pool/water based theme. Flamingos also work well into an Alice in Wonderland themed party.

You could go mainly with pinks, or incorporate greens/oranges for tropical, blues for a water feel or a stylish black & white to mix in with the hot pink! I’ve focused mainly on pink for this blog post but have added in a few touches of these other colour schemes as well.

Since this is quite a unique theme which you may not easily find decorations for – make sure you browse the businesses in the “Handmade Decor” category of the party directory. Some of the talented ladies there will be able to make you some flamingo garlands, flamingo toppers or other custom designed flamingo items!

I’ve also been pinning away some ideas on my flamingo  pinterest board so make sure you check it out
