Fruity Pineapple Flamingo Party

To celebrate our littlest love turning two I wanted to do something sweet, bright and sunny to match her happy disposition.  This is what we created for Maisie's 2nd Birthday Party - a Fruity Pineapple Flamingo ticked all the boxes!  Read on to find out exactly how this colour-poppin' party was created.

I found these sweet little pineapple invitations at Moore Creative which they personalised and emailed to me, and I had them printed locally.

These polka dot paper bags from the $2 Shop make excellent envelopes!

And I sealed each envelope with some heart washi tape.

These two flatlays were my inspiration when shopping for supplies!

We invited all six little girls (and their parents) for the fruity flamingo morning tea party.

We served very traditional, homemade, no fuss party food - lolly slice (my specialty), marshmallow kebobs, fruit cups, vanilla cupcakes and iced cookies.

I got these really cute heart shaped spoons from Look Sharp Store to go with some jelly but forgot to serve it!

I found these yellow chevron party plates and polka dot napkins in the party section at Kmart for only $3 each!

I purchased these really cute pineapple cups from overseas for the kids to drink from and the flamingo straws were from our local $2 Store.

They had the choice of water or pineapple, apple and mint Gold Glow Juice by phd. Yum!

The birthday cake was a simple chocolate layer cake which I covered with white fondant and ombre yellow circles.  I wanted to do something really simple and this design reminded me a little of a pineapple too.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  I snuck our little pineapple Sonny Angel on top at the last minute.

The table décor was mainly set up with things I had pulled from around our house.  I already had the Moroccan trellis aqua tablecloth.  The rainbow polka dot fabric on the wall was on sale from Spotight. The honeycomb balls and pineapples were $3 each from Look Sharp Store.

The gorgeous flamingo print by Miss Jessica Leigh was a birthday present to Maisie from my sister. We already had the yellow pineapple which is from Kmart.  Also, I made Maisie a flamingo party hat which I think is my favourite party hat yet!

The awesome pineapple print is from LoCo Design. The flamingos were on sale from Living & Giving.  My clever husband knocked together the bases they are standing in.  The white pineapple is also from Kmart.

And I made a burlap banner to hang on our front gate.

For party favours we gave each of kids a pair of pineapple sunglasses and a flamingo lollipop.  Love those flamingo pops!

I hope you've enjoyed looking at the pictures of this party as much as I enjoyed creating it.  There is inspiration everywhere when you start looking!  Start with some basic colours and feature pieces like I did, and you'll be amazed at what you can come up with.
