How to Plan a Let's Flamingo Bachelorette Party {even a Bridal Shower or Bridal Brunch}

Top 7 Ways to plan a Let's Flamingo Bachelorette Party
{or a bridal shower or bridal brunch as the theme is super versatile}

1. Color: Pink, White + Black with some green and gold for a great pop of color

2. Cookie Presentation: Present cookies on something to give dimension + texture. For this particular party, Alyssa used crush up oreo cookies. You could also use graham crackers, candies or coconut - but Alyssa likes to at least use something edible in case something sticks to the backs of the cookies and is ingested.

3. Cupcake Presentation: Store bought cupcakes can be dressed up with cute little flamingos and placed into decorative baking cups for added color.

4. Favor Boxes: Dress up boxes with pink paper bows

5. Party Printables: Keep the look consistent throughout with the entire set of Flamingo Party Printables from Just a Little Sparkle

6. Feathers: Hot Pink feathers attached to the backs of the drinking glasses {which are painted gold} resemble flamingos

7. Decorations: Dress up the cake stand with a little bit of fun fringe and a color coordinated tassel garland is the perfect backdrop for the dessert table.

Now it's your turn to plan the ultimate Let's Flamingo Bachelorette Party {or bridal shower}. Your guests are going to love this fun flamingo party theme.

A Hollywood Glam Bride Styled Photo Shoot in Red, Black and Gold
I'm loving this "Hollywood Glam" styled shoot from The Story Telling Experience that was inspired by the beautiful 1950's era. The model wore a beautiful Angelique Bridal Gown and the bright red lips looked amazing against her porcelain skin and stunning red hair. I'm also loving the statement necklace and the gorgeous red bouquet with feathers.
