When Tami found out she was having a girl, I immediately knew I wanted a flamingo theme for her baby shower. Tami has always liked flamingos and although we tend to go with a more subtle look when we design spaces in our homes, I knew I could get away with and knew I needed to go a little more bold with the party theme. I opted to go with a more tropical overall look and added in greenery and lots of pineapples. As you can imagine, keeping a secret from Tami is probably the hardest thing for me to do. I have been planning her baby shower for a while now and couldn’t wait to show her all of the details and to reveal the theme. 

I wanted to make the courtyard special to welcome guests upon their arrival and went a bit crazy with flamingos to reveal the theme. 

I ordered these fun balloon bouquets from our favorite balloon vendor, Any Occasion Balloons in West LA, complete with large mylar flamingos and the most fun one filled with gold confetti. I also added in a few garden flamingos for a whimsical touch. 

I handmade this sign with a cute saying to go with … “Let’s Flamingle!” 

It made for a great spot to get some photos of our Mom-to-Be too. Doesn’t she look adorable in her party dress?

I couldn’t have planned this party without these amazing girls. Maya and Ashlee helped me with every detail and Ava helped in her own way too. 

Each of us took on our own creative project. I made the flower arrangements and our sister Maya created these amazing signs. 

We ordered these awesome bagel trays with all of the fixin’s and some gorgeous fruit platters from The Bagel Broker. They were delicious …

… and added in a few homemade salads along with our grandma’s famous chile egg puff. 

 

We set up this cute drink station in the kitchen with a little of something for everyone (coffee, pink lemonade, and of course rose). 

We infused our water with pineapple to fit the theme, and it was delicious too!

 

I’m pretty sure that the dessert table was one of my favorite details from the party. Not only were the treats so delicious (Thanks to Ashlee!), but each fun detail that we included was so over the top. 

This banana trifle that Ashlee made is quite possibly the most amazing thing I’ve ever had (I may have had two helpings, wink!), and these fun forks added in just the right amount of black and white. 

We transformed these plain glazed donuts into pineapples with green glitter toppers we ordered on Etsy and got some powdered sugar donut holes to go with.

I can’t decide what the best part of this cake that Ashlee made is … The delicious pink sprinkle inside, the fabulous candy topping, or the watercolor flamingo?

We set the table with pink plates, baby pineapples, a swiss dot runner, and these awesome flower arrangements we made in real pineapple shells. 

We made this Mom-to-Be sign for a special place for Tami to sit and added a little pink bow to her baby pineapple for another special touch.

We set up a small reception table to house the sign in details we planned, all the elements we needed for a fun game sing off, and Tami’s gifts.

   

Any Occasion Balloons also made this awesome balloon arch in every shade of pink and blush and we added fun tropical leaves for a special touch.

Ashlee’s gift to Tami included this incredible flamingo themed diaper cake … 

… and a fun sign to put up in the nursery customized for “Baby Daks”. Each guest left their thumbprint to show how much they care.

    

Our finishing touches were these little party favors, a few prizes to go with the theme, and a cute note for Tami to read while she opened each gift about which traits our party guests want the baby to get from each of her parents. Not surprising at all that Tami’s hair and Phil’s height were popular votes!

I am so glad that Tami really loved every detail and was so happy to celebrate with all of her closest friends and family. A huge shout out to the “Aunt Squad” (Maya, Rebecca, and Ashlee) and to my mom for making this party amazing. Now that the big event is over, and we have revealed the theme, I can’t wait to meet my little niece and to find out her name. “Baby Daks” … Coming soon!
