The birthday season at my house starts at the beginning of June and ends in Mid July.
I celebrate 4 birthdays, Father’s Day, and one extra party for getting out of school and starting summer within that time span.
My house is a revolving door of people and parties and by July 8 I am done with all parties and seeking a vacation.
What makes each and every birthday different is that I theme them for my kids and my husband so that everyone feels special.
No one has the same meal or theme. This year I decided it was time to go pink because my daughter and I are clearly outnumbered by the men in the house.
After all, real mean do enjoy pink right? Use this idea year-round, it’s a great theme!
Here’s how to throw a Pink Flamingo themed party. My inspiration came from luaus that I have visited in Hawaii and then I tossed in some of my own personality!
Lavishly live parties out loud with this DIY Party. Are you ready to learn how to throw a Pink Flamingo themed Party?

I want to make it even pinker and more Flamingo-filled! I’ll credit you with the idea! Thanks & enjoy it.
Paperware – For A Pink Flamingo Themed Party
With so many parties and so little time to get them all together, I am a firm believer in paperwares.
I do mix in some brilliantly colored Fiestaware as it is party-ready. I chose lovely little appetizer plates with flamingos as well as Pink Flamingo Napkins.
Cover a plastic table with a Flamingo Tablecover and it makes it look so much more festive right?
Then we added the Flamingo Birthday Garland to the base of the table and taped it down because it was windy that evening.
That’s important because when someone has had a bit too much to drink they stack their plate a little high and of course, the plate collapses if it is weak!
Attention To Detail – When Throwing A Pink Flamingo Themed Party
You can cut them to size and often cover more than one table with just a table cover.
Coordinate everything, leave no table uncovered and keep the theme of Luau and Pink Flamingos moving!
Details matter and trust me, everyone notices when a party is done well!
Next, if you truly are going ALL-In with the Pink Flamingo and Luau theme then you totally need to get the Pink Flamingo tape!
It keeps the theme moving along and it is helpful for taping down tablecloths and pinning up Pin The Tail in The Flamingo!
Did I mention that it is helpful to put either a Flamingo BOW on your screen sliding doors.
A piece of this Flamingo tape so someone does not walk through the screen door? Yes, we’ve had this happen on more than one occasion! NO thanks to flies in the house!
The Flamingo Beverage napkins were the perfect compliment to the Happy Birthday Glasses (those were from a dollar store of some sort).
I combined plastic tumblers (that we had) with Tissue Flamingo Straws to make the perfect glasses that help margaritas!
Now it was time to cover those patio chairs and get the Luau part of the Flamingo Party on.
The Maholo Leis were used to decorate the chairs and were there for everyone entering the party.
They served double duty and made it look really festive without having to do much.
I heart Hawaii and after spending a few weeks there over a few different trips, this just reminds me of it!
Simple accessories put together really make a big party splash of fun right?
Now, I think I also should have added some fresh flowers to the table centers and used the umbrella to hang more lights, what do you think?
Sushi & Flamingos
This party has gone to the birds or the fish? I mean, you gotta deck it all out. Sushi keeps it light and delish and also provides something for those of us that don’t eat meat but want a treat.
Look at those picks, so darn cute.
Buying the sushi is a fast appetizer that looks festive on any platter. I made sure to find one that kind of was already in party mode!
There is a grouping you may not expect to see, but I grabbed a party tray we had in the house.
Finally, when you need a laugh, a central focus, you totally need a ‘Steve or that is what my kids named him.
This is about 4 feet tall, jumbo inflatable flamingo and we had more fun with this than you can believe.
First, we hid it in my daughter’s room and when she walked in she screamed!
Then Steve the Flamingo came to our Flamingo Themed party and cracked a few cold ones as he watched the stock dwindle down as the night wore on!
Please note, even the inflatable flamingo (Steve) was wearing a Mahalo Lei.
Flamingos Lead The Way
If you are going to have a party, share it with the world. I want to announce my parties and share the love.
Everyone coming by says “Happy Birthday” and it is perfectly festive with these banners.
Signs are good too, it helps your guests decide whether to come to the back or the front door.
Party banners are fun and they add a little more to the decor, so I hung this on our Patio Lights.
The banners definitely are an ornate part of our party.
Don’t forget the easy stuff like really Large Sized Pink Flamingo & Pineapple Balloons!
We have been having a lot of trouble purchasing mylar balloons with helium. It would seem that there is a shortage of helium? Who knows, but we found something even better!
We inflated these ourselves after they arrived via mail. These flamingos stole the show! Best of all, they shipped right to my house, so it was ONE less thing to run out for!
First, it’s about the icing, then it’s about the colors, last about the batter. This cake just made my heart so happy.
I bought the cake at Sam’s Club, as they have some of the best designs for summer parties and the price is always perfect.
The cake was for 14 of us, and trust me there was plenty and the icing is sweet!
While I could not find a Pink Flamingo cake or anyone to make one fast, I did manage to find and order this brilliant cake!
No party would be complete without cake and I made sure to serve up a ‘hot pink cake’ flamingo colored, with some neon icing.
To keep it cool we added in some ice cream deco and it was perfection! The summer party that was Pink was a hit!
For those guests that want to be inside rather than out, keep the Flamingo groove going! I did.
Look at this cute tablecloth and all the Fiestaware I put down. Fiestaware is so happy and so festive.
It is really easy to plan a themed party, I had a great time planning this one and found a lot of great products to meet what I was looking for.
Lavishly live life out loud and throw a themed pink flamingo party! Tell me what you added to yours.
