My Birthday Party :: Flamingo Pool Party

Share To:

First of all, thank you all SO much for the lovely birthday wishes today! It’s been an amazing day and I feel so special! (did you see my cake?!) This year, sadly I am not having a birthday party. I had big plans to do another pool party with a fabulous Flamingo theme, however after all of my travel, vacation and sickness in June, I decided I was too tired to plan it. I came up with the Flamingo theme back in March when I was shopping at Ikea for Kate’s Rainbow Heart Party and found the most adorable Flamingo cocktail glasses and napkins. I immediately pictured a black, white and pink pool party incorporating cabana stripes and pops of flamingo pink everywhere! Can you see it now? I bought a bunch of fun items and started collecting the cutest black, white and pink supplies from the shop. Sigh. Maybe next year? In the meantime, I thought I would share a board with a few of my ideas that might inspire you to go with this fun theme!

    I have that Kate Spade tote (bought for less than $50 at the outlet) and looooove it.

  7. What a fun party concept! So sorry you weren’t able to bring it to life this year, but rest is super important!! I hope you’re feeling rested and renewed soon!

    Even the thought of having a party is fabulous Kim, even though it did not take place. In Sri Lanka it is so hard to plan a party with beautiful items such as your inspiration board shows. You have to shop at may be five or six places to get what you are after and then there is no guarantee that you will find it. Give some thought of having a buyer in Sri Lanka and then we can plan parties like you. Best of luck and once again Happy birthday Kim!!!!
