I’m loving the tropical trend of pineapples and pink flamingos. This year I’ve decided to jump on the trend and design my birthday party with this tropical theme. I’ve started collecting ideas for a festive pool party and I decided it’s never to early to start working on party decor. So today I’m sharing the first glimpse of Pink Flamingo Party Decor for my birthday celebration.
We will definitely need a way to stay hydrated at our pool party, so of course I’ll be setting up a drink station. I love having cute, custom cups that match the party theme. But, sometimes a celebration calls for something a little more fancy than colored paper cups. One of my favorite ways to transform something quickly is with my Cricut and vinyl. I love using vinyl, it’s fun and such an easy way to customize everything from home decor to party decor.
I used my Cricut to make some cute pink flamingo and gold polka dot cups. This is such an easy way to customize your party decor and I love having fancy cups to sip signature drinks from.
Here is what you will need to make your own pink flamingo party cups:
- Tall Drinking Glasses
- Pink Flamingo Vinyl from the Cricut® Brights Vinyl Sampler Pack
- Cricut Gold Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Paper
- Paper Straws
I wanted this to be an easy project so I used a fancy flamingo image already available in Cricut Design Space. I love that you can choose from 1000 of images to create the perfect project or choose from one of the already designed Make It Now projects. After choosing an image I sized it to fit my glasses, about 4 1/2″ tall.
Use the Cricut transfer paper and gently adhere the vinyl flamingo to the glass. Peel back the transfer paper to reveal your fancy flamingo party cups.
Cut out 1/2″ circles in the gold vinyl and randomly place them on the glass for another festive party cup.
Fill up your fancy flamingo party cups with a signature party drink and your all set for an extraordinary birthday celebration!
