Guest Blog Post From Our Creative Contributer, Rosemary March
As the days get longer and the sun shines a bit brighter, one can't help but feel a little down about cancelled vacations and altered summer plans. We know that staying home makes all the difference in a the world. However, it doesn't help the vacation FOMO disappear. If you're planning a party during the quarantine, it can be a challenge. That's why I love the idea of transforming your outdoor space into a tropical flamingo oasis!
That's right, it's time to bring out your pool floats, folding chairs and your kiddie pool! Make it a whole day affair and transform your patio or yard into a tropical palm springs daydream. Not only is this birthday party theme totally fun and great for all ages, it's also super easy to pull together.
I've shared below my curation from the Paper & Parties Flamingo Collection. The ice cream cups I already had at home but everything else is from Paper & Parties. I encourage you to look around the house to see what you already have and combine that with some stylish elements that you can order safely online. I've mentioned this in the past that Paper & Parties not only has great shipping rates but is also 100% Canadian female owned and operated. You can feel great about not only supporting a female owned business but also stay on budget.
My lovely friend Kristie from The Sweet & Simple Kitchen was happy to share a couple of her birthday treat recipes. These desserts work perfectly with this whimsical party theme. You can find the recipe for her Birthday Cake Cookie Ice Cream and her Chewy Birthday Cake Sugar Cookies on her amazing blog. Every single thing she makes is a true crowdpleaser. So I highly recommend giving one a try. The cookies are really easy to make and we filled our with delicious strawberry ice cream (Also very flamingo).
