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

  • PERFECT
  • Extravagant
  • Expensive
  • 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!



How to throw a flamingo family dinner


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


How to decorate for a Flamingo Party


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.

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

After dinner we moved to the fun part,  decorating sugar cookies.

Cookie decorating is normally something we do at Christmastime.



But I think that's what made it so fun to do for summer.







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

    1. Flamingos are so retro! They remind me of my youth, when people had them in their yards.
