Pink Flamingo party
How to have a flamingo theme pool party for girls
As kids birthday party ideas go, a pink flamingo birthday party is quite unusual. Say
yes to a flamingo birthday for girls. Just think pink and stand on one leg!
You don't have to be trailer trash to love pink flamingos. You'll have party goers
heading Key West in no time with a wacky pink flamingo party. It's an ultra cool
and original pool party idea. Besides, there is so much fun stuff to buy online that
you're sure to get hooked collecting this funky bird.
- Flamingo lawn ornaments: Iconic pink flamingo lawn ornaments are the
inspiration for this ultra feminine, yet kitsch and tropical theme party, so you
may as well start your flamingo fun by setting up pink flamingo lawn
ornaments to lead the party entrance. Buy them by the dozen because they
can double as party favors.
- Pink Flamingo inflatables: Send away for pink flamingo inflatables, which you
can find here online. Inflate with a bicycle pump and when the party is over
you can save space and store them away. The birthday girl will love it if you
pack them away and inflate them again on a rainy day so she can reminsce
about her party. Here are our favorite pink flamingo inflatables:
- Greet guests with a lifesize flamingo: Easy to inflate, the pink flamingo
inflatable, right is a quick way to decorate. Be sure to have the girls pose for
pictures, then send them with the thank you cards. This life-size pink flamingo
inflatable, which you'll find only online, stands four feet tall.
- Pink flamingo mini inflatables. Inflate these flamingos at the party for
decoration, then divvy them up as favors when then party's over. Use a
Sharpie to personalize with party goers' names.
- Pink Flamingo drink holders, above right, will keep your sodas cozy and cute.
- Pink Flamingo Ring toss: Play the pink flamingo ring toss game, below, which is
also an inflatable!
- Look to the luau: If your party is around luau season, then you'll find shopping
for party supplies is a surprising pleasure at your local party supply where
flamingo themed decorations abound!

Setting the scene
Since all your party supplies will be pink, you'll want to set the table in contrast with
baby blue crepe paper and layer it with blue tulle to resemble an oceanic habitat.
Another fun way to incorporate blue is with blue cellophane, which you can use for
the salty clear waters. Sprinkle mini yard flamingos, pictured, right, like confetti on
the tables. You get 100 1.5" tall pink flamingos in the bag of additional pieces to the
Yard Flamingos Trailer Park Wars game available.
Pink Flamingo cakes and cookies
- Making a pink flamingo cakes is a bit of a challenge, but here are some ideas:
- Flamingos on a stick? Sure! Coat your cake balls with smooth melting bright
pink candy coatings to make cake pops. You can add a bit of fondant to wrap
a leg around the stick.
- Top cupcakes with pink flamingo minis, pictured above righat.
- Cut fondant decorations for your cake with a cookie cutter. The gorgeous copper
pink flamingo cookie cutter, right, will provide a lasting memory of the party.
Sprinkle your cookies with pink sparkling sugars or pink non-pareils. Use it
also to cut cookies, cheeses, fondant for the cake, sandwiches and more for
Games and activities
Flamingo dancing lessons? Croquet with lawn ornaments? You don't really need any
activity for a pink flamingo pool party as the activity of swimming will be enough, but
if you insist on adding to the wacky party idea with games, here are a few.
- Flamingo dance obstacle course: Have the kids maneuver between lawn
ornaments in an obstacle course on one leg. When the music starts,
contestants hop on one leg.
- Pink Flamingo Croquet: You may recall in Through the Looking Glass by Lewis
Carroll, that Alice uses flamingos as croquet mallets. Make it lawn ornament
- Color without pink. Set up a coloring contest without providing pink ink. (Use
free Pink flamingo coloring pages or your own images). Explain how pink
flamingos get pink: it really is their diet, they eat shellfish (crustaceans), a
diet high in alpha and beta-carotene, which influences their color. Tell the kids
that the coloring pages represent special flamingos who didn't eat their
vitamins. You'll get some creative pictures. Then you can explain that
scientists who study birds had long argued whether pink flamingos were
more duck like or more stork like, until they classified them in a group on their
own. Best of all, you won't have the kids fighting over the pink ink.
- More Pink Flamingo party games: After you test kids endurance at standing on
one leg you can play some other pink flamingo theme party games.
- Whack a pink flamingo pinata. You can easily fill it with pink treats or
beach theme party candies. Fill it with tropical treats, tropical lifesavers,
flip flop gummies and more.
- Play a game of pink flamingo ring toss, right. Have Party goers stand on
one leg for their turn.
- Treasure hunt. Source pink flamingo trinkets or find pink eggs and hide
treasures. You'll find lots of pink flamingo party supplies on this page.
