It’s already July so I’ve started to have my annual freak-out about how I haven’t done anything I said I would do this summer. The one thing I always swear I’ll do is throw the ultimate themed summer fete for my friends, but usually the end of August hits and I panic and give up. Does this sound familiar to you? I hope I’m not the only one!
So, let's all take a cue from the summer's hottest trend--FLAMINGOS!--pull out all of our Pinterest-inspired awesomeness, and throw the ultimate “Let’s Flamingle” bash. As I’m sure you’ve seen, flamingos are dominating fashion and home trends this season, making the pink-feathered bird this summer’s definitive icon. So we shopped around and found 12 Snap-, Insta- and Facebook-worthy items that your guests won’t be able to take their eyes (or iPhones) off of. We’ve included little party finds that are of-the-moment, plus home accents you’ll use for years to come.
Sunnylife + Vineyard Vines Whaley Good Life Flamingo Drink Holder
This floating four-cup carrier makes sure rose is never out of reach, even when you’ve gone for a dip. Don't have a pool? Use it as a table centerpiece and swap in utensils and napkins.
Sunnylife Flamingo Ice Cube Tray
The food-safe silicone makes it easy to pop these cubes out while keeping their super cute shape. Guests are sure to be impressed by just how pervasive your flamingo theme is!
Inflatable Flamingo Kiddie Pool
Is it just us or have kids pools gotten a lot cuter since we were little? The thick vinyl keeps this basin from puncturing and the bright pink just makes it extra splashy. Bonus: Parents will jump for joy when they see their kids have something to keep them occupied!
Flamingo Pattern Beach Towel
This oversized towel is six feet tall, providing plenty of space for you to stretch out by the pool or ocean, or providing picnic spots for guests on the grass.
Metallic birds make this take on our favorite bird a little more sophisticated. It’s also made of glass so it looks appropriate indoor or outdoor year-round.
