To celebrate our baby girl turning ONE,
we threw a Flamingo party!
It was a beautiful day!
It rained right as I had set up everything, but stopped within two minutes.
Then right after we started eating, I looked behind the pool house
and it was raining -- but somehow,
it wasn't raining on the pool or the rest of the party!
-- [a little miracle from Mimi, I have no doubt.
She would have loved this party so much!] --
We had pink cotton candy, and a lemonade bar
crab sandwiches, surf & turf kabobs
shrimp cocktail and ceviche
-- it was all so delicious! --
And to top it all, we had a soft serve machine
full of Pineapple Dole Whip!
It might have been one of my favorite parts.
We had a "Ring-A-Flamingo" game
and Flamingo Croqette
and of course, a swimming pool full of flamingo toys.
We are so grateful for our friends and family that celebrated with us!
We truly have the BEST Flock!
I made a pineapple strawberry cake
and made flamingo cupcakes with chocolate wings and fondant heads.
They turned out SO well!
Miss Phoebe wouldn't eat much of her cake without a fork...
Ha! She ended up eating half of the back of the cake.
It was the best day!
Happy Birthday to our Phoebe Girl!
