Summer celebration: Family Friendly Flamingo Party

Do you want a FUN way celebrate the start of summer?

Throw a Family Friendly Flamingo Party!!

I think something that prevents everyone from
throwing parties is thinking
that it has to be




or Complicated!

Well, it is my opinion that parties do not have to be any of these.
I'll show you how I put together a simple,
yet fun Summer Celebration!

I spent very little money to set this party up.
The plates, straws, cups and flamingos all 
came from the dollar store.

I used items I had on hand (except the dollar store flamingos) 
to create the decorations.
The lightbox and letter board are so handy to have 
and can be used for any occasion!

I set the table very simply with flamingo plates,
flamingo cups, 2 kinds of flamingo straws (because I loved them both)
pink napkins and blinking necklaces with either palm trees or flamingos.

It's nothing too extravagant or complicated,
but it makes family dinner a little bit more exciting!

Here is the table set up right next to our Summer bucket list.

We kept the menu very simple for dinner.
We had grilled hamburgers and hot dogs,
potato salad and baked beans.

A menu can't get much more summer than that.

We added a tiny bit of cherry syrup to our Sprite
to make the drinks extra special!

After dinner we moved to the fun part,

decorate sugar cookies, swig sugar cookies

decorating sugar cookies.

Cookie decorating is normally something
we do for Christmas.
But I think that's what made it so fun to do for summer.

It's something we don't normally do.

And they were tasty!!
Who doesn't love a good sugar cookie?!!

So don't be afraid to put together a simple,
yet fun party.
Shop the things you have at home
and browse the dollar store.
You'll find that it's pretty simple to do!
