Flamingos and Pineapples Birthday Party

I am so excited to share today my daughter’s 5th Birthday!!  Last year, she was a whimsical Fairy that danced around a Maypole with her fellow Fairy friends.  Remember Sophia’s Enchanted Fairy Party?   This year she partied like a Flamingo with her Pre-K bestie, Charlotte, who also celebrated her 5th birthday!

Party Details:

Sophia’s favorite animals are Flamingos for obvious reasons: They are Pink.  Sophia loves Pineapples, especially in the summer.   When I suggested to her that we could do a Flamingos and Pineapples Birthday Party Theme, she was ecstatic!  Her two wishes were that she wanted bright colors and also lots of fun music and dancing.  After weeks of planning, we learned that Sophia’s Friend, Charlotte was not able to celebrate her 5th Birthday because just like Sophia, she was born during the Christmas Holiday Break.  I always celebrate half birthdays for Sophia because I love warm outdoor parties and there’s usually too much going on during Christmas break.  So, sweet Charlotte and her family joined us in this double the fun celebration!

Pineapples-and-Flamingo-ParMy backyard was the setting for this Tropical Chic party.  As the birthday theme indicates the party decor consisted of lots of Flamingo and Pineapple decor.   The delicious Strawberry and Chocolate cake was the focal point of the “Flamingo Cafe” dessert table.  It was adorned with fresh flowers and an adorable Flamingo Pick.  I DIYed the Dessert Table awning by hand-painting it to replicate our Floral Fiesta Paper Tableware and Banner.  To add a tropical touch to the dessert table I added two Pineapple Honeycombs on each side of  the awning.
