Flamingo & Watermelon Birthday Party

By now you probably know that we (meaning my daughter) plan our parties way in advance.
Pretty much as soon as this years balloons are being taken down, ideas for next year’s bash are being suggested.
This one was supposed to be a Woodlands theme. (I love a woodlands theme!) With horses. (Not so much…)
But then she decided that she wanted a foam slide instead, and so we had to think of something summery to go with it. (She’s like her mom in that way… everything must be theme-appropriate.)
 I suggested watermelons or flamingos.
So of course Sabrina chose watermelons and flamingos.

See the token flamingo on the top of the cake?  (It was hand drawn onto a  CMC/ tylose paste cut-out.)

And then pretty much watermelon-everything-else….

I loved working with this colour combination. I felt the same of her party last year. But this combination of green, white and pink is particularly fresh and refreshing. 
And fortunately the weather played along. 

Oh, look – there were more flamingos!
Those are supawood cut-outs from Everything Laser.
But I did paint them myself! 😅

Actually I made flamingo cookies too, as party favours. But more about those in another post.

Happy end-of-summer-decorating!
