Let's be honest, my kids birthday parties are just as much for me as they are for them! They give me the perfect excuse to buy fun props and items I have been eyeing for a long time, such as this letter board! If the parties were truly just for my kids, we could just fill a room with their friends, pizza, soda, bottled water, lots of candy and electronic devices! 

BUT...birthday parties to me are like a right of passage for us moms! Celebrating another year with our great survival skills!! 

All kidding aside, my kids love to pick out their own theme, then I go for it! Taking ownership and responsibility seriously, is the way I roll. Designing and styling a Tropical Flamingo Fest so perfect for any age but totally enjoyed by my 11 year old daughter and her friends, was so much fun!  

This year she helped me with so many of the decorations, from spray painting the flamingos to blowing up the balloons to styling the table {I think I have a creative stylist on my hands}! 

I start the party planning process once the theme is decided upon, then I create a vision board to help me get the creative juices flowing. We wanted a very bright and cheerful color palette which we had not seen before for a flamingo party. What color is better than yellow to make everything more cheerful? The broad yellow striped fabric was perfect and matched the invitation to a T! Next I brought in the greens and pinks to match the tropical flamingo feel. 

Designing the invitation was the easy part, now to match and color coordinate. A HUGE thank you to all the brands who helped us take this party from ordinary to extraordinary!
