PARTY DETAILS as told by Kelly

This fabulous first birthday party belongs to my beautiful little girl Skylar. After doing over a hundred weddings and events over the past few years, it was so fun to finally plan something for our newest addition! My husband grew up in Florida and the lottery song had something to do with flamingos. As an infant he always sang this to her and she would giggle for hours! So I knew that when it was time to pick a theme for her first birthday, flamingos was it!! I started planning about 3 months after she was born and anytime I would see something with a flamingo I would order it. I loved this theme — aqua, pink and lots of water created a fun filled pool day for Skylar and all of our friends and family!!
