Summer is almost here and with that means longer days, sunshine and sandy beaches. The season alone is enough to celebrate, but if one of your kids is a summer baby, then what could be cuter than throwing them a tropical flamingo birthday party?!
This amazing tropical birthday bash by Stephanie Rubiano of Beloved Events is full of creative ideas that will sure make a splash at your next party!
Don’t live near the ocean? No worries! You can bring the seashore right into your home by simply gathering all things beachy. The easiest way to do this is by transforming one of the walls of your home into a tropical paradise. By going to a craft store you can purchase a sheet of beach-themed fabric the dimensions of one of your walls. This will add the perfect pop of color and immediately set the tone for the party.
We all know how important sweets are to kids at a birthday party, so what better than to have a whole table dedicated to desserts? Place your dessert table in front of the beachy tapestry to keep it the focal point of the party.
This is no time to skimp on sugar, so go all out and fill it with fun, tropical treats. I suggest serving delicious finger foods, such as macaroons, cupcakes, cookies, and donuts. And no party is complete without a special cake, so if you can, splurge on a two-tiered birthday cake decorated with fondant waves, suns, or anything else oceanic that you think your child will love!
With a tropical party you can really get creative with the decor. This party had inflatable flamingo cupholders and pool toys, beach balls, Hawaiian leas, summery colored balloons, coconut shaped cups and a balloon banner that spelled out the birthday girl’s name. You can also make your own custom banner https://www.teresashpizear.com/diy-letter-fan-garland/ to save a little cash.
Make sure not to forget the gift bags! Kid’s will be happy with any trinkets they can take home, so don’t feel like have to blow your budget on elaborate, individual gifts. Beach buckets filled with bubbles and sand toys are sure to be a hit with all the little party goers.
This is a perfect opportunity to put your own decorative spin on things, so don’t worry about going overboard. The kitsch factor is a must at any tropical event, so embrace it and make this tropical flamingo birthday party a real splash!
