This stylish & retro Pink Flamingo Pool Party is one of those parties that makes me all kinds of HAPPY… unique theme, fabulous paper graphics & styling, amazing cake, glistening pool, sparkly pink drinks – what’s not to love?! ;) It also happens to be a joint birthday for two best friends… as dreamed up and styled by their {very talented} moms: Leanne of Sweet Style and Natasha, who did the stationery graphics. What a great visual reminder to treasure these last days of warm weather, sun & outdoor fun!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Pink ombre cake ball tower
– Scalloped blue ombre printables + an amazing flamingo-topped cake to match!
– Adorable photo booth pictures with a retro striped backdrop
– Soft pink cake stands & decorative glass jars holding pink sweets galore
– A vintage “ice cream bar” filled with clever cupcake-y treats (No melting!)

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Leanne

For Sienna’s 7th Birthday we had a joint party with her best friend Tess.  Sienna had always wanted a pool party but as her birthday falls in the middle of winter we postponed the party so we could enjoy the pool.  Sienna and Tess both love blue and pink so it was the basis for the colour scheme and we picked a retro style pink flamingo to use throughout the details of the party.  Tess’ mum Natasha designed and created all the stationery and signage for the day.

We had a number of different tables set up – the first being the cake and candy table which included the beautiful cake by Jacki from Blissfully Sweet Cakes.  This table also included an amazing cake ball tower and yummy marshmallows that were also made by Jacki as well a delicious selection of candy for everyone to chose from to take home.

We also had an ice-cream bar set up outside.  The cupcakes were made to resemble little ice-cream sundaes and they were a big hit along with the sherbet ice creams.  The third table was a drinks station which included delicious pink pink lemonade.

The kids were entertained with loads of activities and we kicked off the party with the fun photo booth.  After some swimming and the water balloon fight the girls enjoyed some pampering in a mini spa we set up for nail painting.

As a party favour all the girls were given a mini ice cream pail filled with cute ice-cream themed stationery and lip gloss.
