Finishing Touches | The S/S ’16 Flamingo Trend

Last summer it was all about the pineapple – golden pineapples in particular. Summer 2016? Well, it’s all about the flamingo – anyone else wonder how this happens?!

So we figured for a bit of fun why not collate our pick of Flamingo-themed finishing touches for your big day.


Top Left: Shoes: I love Sophia Webster shoes, the designs are all so eye-catching and different; any bride-to-be with a decent shoe budget and looking for something a bit unexpected should check out the collection.  However, for flamingo fans, how about the Lola?  A pair of pointed heels covered in a pink flamingo print with a silky satin finish.

Top Right: Invites: Odds are for a Summer 2016 wedding you’ve already sorted, or are close to finalising your invites. And who knows, for Summer 2017 the world might have moved on to Toucans (I’m calling it now!). So how about adding a wax seal to your envelopes? We found this flamingo wax seal stamp over on Etsy.

Middle Left: Straws: Pre-wedding drinks receptions are a popular way to greet guests when they arrive, so why not pretty up their cups with a flamingo straw.  Etsy (gotta LOVE Etsy) has loads of flamingo designs but our fave is this subtle flamingo flag by JenTbyDesign.

Middle Right: Cake: You’ve no doubt sorted your cake, so why not add a fun cake topper? Owl and Otter via Not On The Highstreet can even personalise your flamingos with cut-outs of you and your partners names.

Bottom Left: Napkins: Planning a BBQ for your Wedding Breakfast?  Or serving food later on for an evening buffet? For a relaxed garden party feel check out these brightly coloured flamingo napkins from Talking Tables via Amazon. 

Bottom Right: Garden Games: Why not make like a scene from Alice in Wonderland and have a go at Flamingo croquet?  We found this mallet set on ebay.
