Summer is here and an adorable flock of pink flamingos is here to kick off summer! How fun are these tropical flamingo pink and green birthday party invitations that designer and calligrapher Holly Hollon created for her daughter’s first birthday soirée?? Tropical leaf illustrations, pink cabana stripes, touches of gold foil, and of course Holly’s beautiful calligraphy are all focal points of these gorgeous invitations!
From Holly: For Biscuit’s First Birthday, I wanted to do a backyard birthday with a tropical theme as it was the first of summer and I was feeling all the summer time vibes while planning.
I had some pink yard flamingos for years and never used them and they helped inspire the flamingo motif of the birthday party. These pink flamingos were perfect for our backyard golf course that we set up for the birthday party. Then one day in the grocery store I saw some silver urn plants and those further inspired a flamingo pink and green invitation.
I love the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on Waikiki Beach and used a pink similar to the color of the hotel. Pink and green are such festive and summery colors. It was fun to play with bright colors and pull in touches of gold in the day-of party goods.
I designed scorecards with the flamingo logo and my dad crafted wooden putters for the children at the party. Napkins, koozies and cups were a fun way to have special touches and not have to go overboard with party decor. I simply love how it all came together!
