Tropical times ahead! We’re clearly still not over flamingos or pineapples, and these cute paper plates by Meri Meri have helped us merge the two into one for a summer party your guests won’t forget! When your backyard does the work for you, it doesn’t take much to set the scene, but our little leaf banner is the easiest DIY of paper plates that are way too cute to ever eat off of taped onto baker’s twine! So easy and helps to bring those tropical, summery vibes! Besides the cute paper goods, the talk of he table is another easy DIY—this flamingo cake!!! Target Dollar Spot has had these plastic flamingos around the past couple of years and I have stocked up every time. They’re so cute!!! All you have to do is frost your cake with a grass tip (Wilton 233) and exchange the wire legs for food-safe bamboo skewers which you can cut to any length. It definitely is a show-stopping centerpiece! Enjoy looking through all the details of this pineapples & pink flamingos party and be sure to tag me if you create a plastic flamingo cake of your own—I’d love to see it!
