Having a theme at a get-together adds another layer of fun to the party atmosphere. Ideas for party themes are varied; you can draw inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. Try a pink flamingo party. This whimsical theme can be interpreted in a handful of easy, creative and unique ways.
Set the scene by going all out with all things pink. Hang pink streamers and pink balloon clusters. Find inflatable pink flamingos at a party-supply store or cut large flamingos out of construction paper to hang on the walls. For the food table, visit a discount store or go online to find flamingo straws, napkins and tablecloths, and use pink cups, plates, bowls and plastic cutlery. Guests will become part of the decoration when you invite them to wear at least one pink article of clothing, be it a tank top, belt, dress, scarf or a pair of socks.
A pink flamingo party lends itself well to island entertainment. Rent a ping-pong table and volleyball net. Have a limbo contest. Set up croquet and horseshoes, and set out a Hula-Hoop or two. Hire a ukulele player for a few hours, or play Hawaiian music CDs so guests can dance. Order a flamingo pinata. Have a digital camera ready and set out a surfboard with a blue fabric backdrop so guests can have their pictures taken.
When it comes to your beverages, you have several options. Nonalcoholic options for a pink flamingo party for a little kid's birthday party or a teen's slumber party include crushed-ice drinks, strawberry milkshakes and pink lemonade. Or make a punch with soda and berry sherbet. For adults, whip up some pretty pink concoctions using spirits such as raspberry vodka or pomegranate liqueur. Or make some classic drinks for your guests in pink such as pina coladas, cosmopolitans and margaritas.
Turn your party food pink. Add a drop of red food colouring to vegetable and chip dips to turn them pink. Cut juicy pink ham into cubes or roll slices into roll-ups. Serve strawberry ice cream in ice cream cones. Set out bowls of pink jelly beans and other pink candies. Bake sugar cookies, a sheet cake or cupcakes and frost them with strawberry icing. Buy doughnuts with pink frosting. Whip up a strawberry congealed salad.
