Flamingo party preparations...

Josie's flamingo "little friend " birthday party is on Saturday. 


As I've said recently, Dollar Tree really came through this year. 





There's even more, but I've got to leave you with a few surprises. I also found this pink feather headband on clearance at Target.



It's going to be super sweet with her flamingo dress.

Here's a little birthday present secret.


Thanks to my Aunts, Josie's sandbox is getting a makeover and will be filled hot pink sand.

I can't wait to see her face when she sees her sandbox filled with pink sand!


















I'm also going to borrow a few plastic flamingos from our tree and we will be going on a flamingo hunt throughout our yard and woods.


Yes.  We're even playing pin the "beak" on the flamingo. 

The weather looks to be hot and humid tomorrow.  Perfect for a flamingo party!  I promise to take lots of pictures!

I just love this precious theme! We are back in Florida now and I am wearing 'flamingo pink' this morning! I wonder if I could get away with wearing a feather headband! It would match! heehee!

Oh my goodness. I want come play in the sand. Do you think it would look odd if I put a sandbox in with my kids at their age. I had no idea they had colored sand. Where on earth did you find all this flamingo stuff...I love it. Smiles..Renee

Wow, sounds like Josie is going to be one happy little girl tomorrow. Can't wait to see all the pics! Wonderful memories you are making for her!! That pink sand looks amazing!! Hubby is talking about making Cocoa a sand box(yes the youngest dachshund in the family) she loves to dig in an old flower pot on the deck. She can get her whole body in it cause she is soo tiny and just digs and digs. I will have to tell him about the pink sand LOL
Have fun!
Hugs,
Lynn

Do you have the company that does "Flamingos by the yard"? Every so often I drive by a house that has been 'flamingo-ed' and it's so fun to see!

Have fun Mama!
