Let's Flamingle and have some fun!

Every year I take a little pause from teaching and jump back into party planning mode. My daughter turned 11 this year so a tween party was just what she wanted. She invited her besties and we flamingled by the pool. A ladies lunch with some crafting and swimming was exactly the kinda party she was wanting.
To set the scene I created a backdrop using black and white striped paper. I used colorful tissue poms and honeycomb balls to create a festive tropical backdrop. Large glitter leaves helped to create a tropical foliage look.

Large coral, pink and orange balloons were strung using twine across the pool. This added a lot of color and fun to the pool party. Large flamingo rafts floated in the pool.

To set the lunch table I started with black and white striped table runners down the center of the table. I topped them off with a faux grass table runner down the center of the table. Add raffia placemats and top with tropical plates. Top it off with fun pineapple cups and flamingo straws.
For centerpieces I used real pineapples and cut out the insides, add a small plastic cup and fill with water. Place fresh cut tropical flowers inside for a fresh tropical feel.


Let's Flamingle Kaitlyn is turning 11!
were just what this party needed!

The girls loved the custom pineapple slushies, just use frozen pineapple chunks, ice a little dab of sugar and some orange juice. Blend  and serve!

The night before the party we held the ultimate baking challenge in the kitchen, armed with pre-made fondant and lots of buttercream icing my daughter and I tackled creating our very own birthday cake....she was super proud and I just love how it turned out!

After the swimming, lunch and fun we took some time out for some flamingo crafts. Each guest got to complete their very own flamingo string art. These cute kits come with everything you need. Just open and get started . Tie one knot onto your first nail then wrap the area to fill in the desired color. What I love about these is there is no right or wrong way, just loop it and tie it. 
Each one is a unique creation.

When everyone was finished with their crafts it was time to head home, these cute tropical gold foil canvas bags were perfect favors to hold all of their swim towels and crafts.

For Invites I designed a simple yet fun invite to post on Facebook. Why print when you can just email to your guests and post an event on Facebook.

I hope these ideas help inspire you to create a flamingle of your own!
