Before Avery’s birthday we were shopping for some cute stuff at our favorite chic-est place to shop. You may have heard of it before. It’s called All-A-Dollar haha… there we spotted these adorable, flamingo shaped cups. They inspired the theme for her party and it was such a fun icon to play off of. While we were there we also snagged the honeycomb shaped flamingos and some headbands for the headband craft.
I also splurged on a cotton candy cart for her party but I know since I have three girls, and we love to throw family parties, that we will use it fairly often. Plus, we were going to rent a cotton candy cart but might as well put that towards the purchase. (If you are looking into ti too make sure you also snag a mesh strip and shield.)
It was perfect to add a quick candy cloud to the cupcakes and my favorite detail was making a cotton candy flamingo cake topper!
To make the cotton candy flamingo cake topper I diecut the flamingo shapes with my Silhouette Cameo. Then glued the pieces together and stuck it to a sucker stick.
The cake and cupcakes were made by Megan Faulkner Brown the founder of Sweet Tooth Fairy and works out of the Provo location. For the inside of the cake she stacked four delectable cakes each a different flavor and ombre shades of pink.
Donut holes covered in sprinkles were on the end of the flamingo straws and then added to ice cream bowls. Also make sure to snag some colorful Dear Lizzy wooden spoons for your next par-tay! ; )
Flamingos and peonies make me happppyyyyy!
I also diecut flamingos and then added them to a headband and feathers for each of the girls at the party. It was darling to see them all running around in their flamingo hats.
