Flowers and Flamingos 3rd Birthday Party

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to share this stunning Flowers and Flamingos Birthday Party styled by Love In Vintage!  It is such a huge breath of fun festive fresh air. Love In Vintage styled this party for her daughter’s third birthday.  I am in love with the over sized flamingo (but really who isn’t?), the sweet hand painted backdrop and the gorgeous cakes.  Clearly, so much thought and love was put into every adorable detail.

From Love In VintageWhen your three-year-old daughter is your client and she is the offspring of a party purveyor, you know the bar is set high. What happens when you mix balloons, flowers, and flamingos? An adorable girly 3rd birthday party! Being a Florida native, and having a little one slightly obsessed with flamingos (okay, okay, I might have contributed to that), I knew a flowery flamingo party would be the perfect theme for my daughter’s birthday party. Pastel colors mixed with vibrant flowers, striped linens, oversized balloons, a four-foot tall flamingo, an 8×8 custom painted dessert backdrop, personalized details, a log cabin food truck, face painting, three cakes, lots and lots of sweets, and an array of beautiful flowers: peonies, tulips, anemones, garden roses, and ranunculus made this party happily come together like birds of a feather.

As the owner of a boutique event design and rental company, details make my heart skip a beat, and nothing makes my heart skip a bigger beat than personalized details. Invitations were very important to me because I love, love, love paper goods and I believe invitations set the tone of your event and get your guest excited. Besides, who doesn’t like to receive pretty snail mail?


I knew I wanted something different and special for the party favors, I wanted the kids to take something home that would always remind them of what a great time they had at Ava’s birthday party. I had met the lovely Simply Jessica Marie at a workshop, the minute I met her, I knew she was the go to person to bring my vision to life. Jessica created the beautiful custom invites with adorable envelope liners. Each little girl and boy got as a send-off party favor a personalized framed illustration hand drawn by the ah-mazing SJM. The illustration for the girls was a girly flamingo wearing a crown and flower bouquet with each little girl’s name, and for the boys, an alligator with a bunting flag banner with each little boy’s name. Nothing says Florida like flamingos and alligators.

The envelope liner was the inspiration for the custom 8×8 floral dessert backdrop. The graceful four-foot tall flamingo was inspired by a beautiful window display of a swan and heron bird at Anthropology. I was so over heels in love with the swan and heron bird that I had to have a bird of my own for the party. The flamingo now resides in my office and makes a lovely statement piece.

Three cakes to celebrate three magical years and lots and lots of sweets to satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth!

The biggest, most rewarding and heart melting detail was my daughter’s big smile. It made me so incredibly proud and happy that my little one was over the moon happy and proud of the birthday party her mommy had put together just for her. Needless to say, she’s already asking for another birthday party. Let the planning begin!
