Throw a FLAMINGLE!


We may be halfway thru summer (insert crying face emoji) but there is still plenty of time to throw a party! Haven’t thrown a summer fling yet? Or need a new and fun theme to try? Well here it is…it’s time to…Throw a FLAMINGLE!


If you haven’t noticed, you soon will, that flamingo theme décor is everywhere! Including right in Morristown. This post is to give you some ideas on how to throw your very own FLAMINGLE and get all your party supplies in the town you love while supporting local business.

What is a FLAMINGLE? A flamingo themed party! There is literally SO much you can do with this theme. Whether you

want to make it a pool party, girls night, bachelorette party, brunch, dinner party, friends mingle or even a kids birthday party, a FLAMINGLE is the perfect stand out (get it) theme for your next party. Here are some ideas to get you started:


First things first, buy this adorable flamingo notebook to jot down all your party ideas and get started on your guest list. (notebook is available at 23 South Boutique)

Where to get supplies:

Must have drinks:
