Submitted by Jacqui Marino of Deets & Things, out of Newport Beach/California/USA; this darling Cactus + Flamingo Themed Summer Party is full of sweet ideas that you could use year-round!
The party elements sure to send your Summer out with a bang include:
- Flamingo party invitations

- Adorable cactus, sunglasses, flamingo and orange slice sugar cookies
- Cactus rock table centerpieces
- Flamingo straws
- Cactus + orange slice pillows
- White-iced cakes topped with flamingo, cactus and fringe number toppers
- And more!
This is what Jacqui shared about the party- “While summer has ended for most, here in Socal we’re still holding on to the last threads as long as the sun shines bright. That’s why when my adorable “irish twin” nieces, Eleanor and Josephine turned three and four late this summer I knew an “ode to summer” was in order! The girls, fresh off a trip to the zoo for the first time were enamored with flamingos so I planned a flamingo shindig with a Palm Springs vibe. Most of the decor were DIY projects, from the invites, signs and custom lounge chairs, to the kid friendly cacti, and feather flamingo straws and Flamingo croquet set. It was such a fun and colorful day – a flamazing ode to summer”.
