I picked out Lia’s 1st Birthday Party theme when she was about 6 months old. I wanted something fun & bright just like her. The winner- Party Like A Pineapple, a pineapple & flamingo party. The perfect theme for a pool/end of summer party. I searched for months and began collecting decorations from Dollar Tree, Target, Amazon & Michaels along with some DIY ideas. Ready to see the turnout?
Since I had the theme picked early on I scored these flamingo cups we put rice pudding, the flamingo cutout, plastic tablecloth and the pineapple toothpicks at Dollar Tree. We ordered our cake & cupcakes from Sams club and I made the topper for the cake out of card stock! I set up her birthday pictures in frames from the Dollar Tree around her dessert table & on every table. The flower garlands I got for $2 at Michaels.

I made this high chair banner out of ribbon & tulle I had laying around and a burlap cutout I had too. I wrapped the ribbon and tulle around a piece of rope and hot glued the paper one cutout.

Another sign I found at Dollar Tree.
Scored these cute straws and similar pineapple ones at Dollar Tree too.
My mom & I made these pineapple lanterns to hang around. Found a great deal on supplies from Amazon and all we had to do was cut the tissue paper length wise and bunch up to look like the top of a pineapple. I made the centerpieces myself cutting out the inside of the pineapples (used that to make pineapple water) then placed a water bottle I cut the top off of , filled it up with water, and placed flowers inside.
I decided to be an adventurer and make the pineapple decorated cookies myself. They were a huge success. Also not as pretty as those I could’ve bought they did taste delicious! These inflatable flamingos were part of their goodie bags. Placed a plastic cup inside with a few pieces of candy and voila!
One of my favorite parts was this banner I made out of cardstock, small clothespins, and some twine. I made a banner with a picture of Lia at each month. Everyone enjoyed watching her grow and her personality shine through.
I had found signs similar for $15-$20 online. I spent $5 on cardstock and used some leftover twine to put together my own Party Like A Pineapple Sign.
Nowadays Snapchat filters are everywhere! I designed this cute and easy filter on Canva! Then uploaded it to Snapchat for a total of $5 for 12 hours on that day! We had so much fun using it.
It was truly a day to remember. It was a day full of food, fun, laughter, swimming, & sweets! A perfect day with our friends and loved ones all partying like a pineapple for Lia.
