We are so excited to share this darling Fruity Flamingo Party styled by our sweet friend, Marie of Sweets Indeed.
Here are some of the details as told by Marie…
In June of this year, my 7 year old niece was diagnosed with leukemia. I was quickly reminded how precious life is and how things can change overnight. My family came together to support my sister and brother-in-law as they dropped everything to be by their daughter’s side. We formed a fundraising site in order to help relieve some of the financial stress and allow friends to join in the ranks in surrounding them with love and encouragement. The outpouring of support has been immeasurable and we will be forever grateful. To donate or acquire updates on Lily’s progress, you can go here.
My daughter’s 10th birthday approached shortly after Lily’s diagnosis and she so graciously decided that she wanted to “donate” her birthday to her cousin. The two had spent Avie’s birthday together for several years and this year, Lily would be unable to attend. We decided to throw a festive and fun “fruity flamingo” party in order to celebrate summer, hope and life.
We had a ton of fun planning the details and there were so many fantastic party people involved! I was inspired by the Oh Joy! for Target summer collection and all of it’s bright colors. I picked up some of the cups, plates, a fruity tray and a few other pieces and planned the color palette around those.
The TomKat Studio designed a printable party collection which provided the perfect flamingo flair. I knew I wanted lots of oversized fruit decor and found that The TomKat Studio’s honeycomb balls were a perfect start! The Pixel Studio and I created fruit shaped templates that we used to cut the honeycomb balls into fruit shapes.
Such a beautiful party, Marie. Thank you for sharing it with us and we hope Lily is doing well.
