Flamingo Pool Party

I’ve decided to start a new series on Silk & Cinnamon that highlights a fun party idea and includes decor, food or drink ideas, and an invite that you can customize for your own use. The first one is a flamingo themed pool party that has a hint of the 50’s.

If you are interested in using this invitation for your own party, message me and I can send you a customized file with your details that you can print yourself.

I hope you enjoy this new series on the blog, I have already got a couple more ideas in the works.
