While there can be a downside to having a summer birthday (friends out of town, no class celebration, etc.), one MAJOR upside is the warm weather and the opportunity for a pool party! Bethany of Auntie Bea’s Bakery didn’t throw just any pool party, she pulled off this stylish & FUN Flamingo Summer Pool Party for her darling little girl.

The bright color scheme, fun pool toys and tropical tablescape create the perfect mix of relaxing and vibrant. I can’t wait for days like these — lounging by the pool with friends and sipping ice cold lemonade… with those adorable flamingo straws of course! ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Giant cupcake cake, pink striped cake pops & the most darling pink flamingo chocolate Oreos
  • Custom flamingo plates and pink feather boa lined flamingo backdrop + POOL candy dishes
  • Matching aqua coverup dresses + glittering heart & flamingo sunnies for each little girl
  • “Flamingo poop” jelly beans & “flamingo fluff” cotton candy + the perfect flamingo pool toy

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Bethany

This year our family decided it was time for a POOL! We live in Northern CA where it gets HOT during the summer. We were finally able to swim in June, just in time for our little one’s 7th birthday (ya, I know, she’s not so little anymore)! When July rolled around, we held an awesome Flamingo themed pool party for Miss A.

Since it was a flamingo party, all the desserts and decor were flamingo themed: flamingo cookies, flamingo Oreos, flamingo rock candy, flamingo rice krispies…you get the picture ;)

Some really sweet party friends helped me out with decor. There were flamingo plates from Create Ur Plate (check them out, they are fantastic!), the adorable “POOL” candy dishes from Hoopla Events and the hand made flamingo straws, lovingly made by Fizzy Party, just to name a few.

As a special treat, Jelly Belly sent us oodles of Jelly Belly Beans in the pool party colors. We used them everywhere! We even styled them and called them “Flamingo Poop” as a little funny. They also made for a cute backdrop to display cookies and other treats. And of course we gave bags of them away with the party favors ;)

To end our party, Miss A gave her little guests aqua colored swim covers ups, pink beach balls and flavor buckets filled with all sorts of treats!

Everyone left super cute and super COOL!
