Aloha friends and welcome to the Sugar & Spice tropical paradise! I'm soo ready for summer to start that I couldn't help but throw a party to hurry it on its way! I'm still so wild about the pineapple and flamingo trend that I couldn't wait to dive into this party. What about you? What's your favorite summer party trend?

To combine the pineapple and flamingo themes together I gave the plastic lawn flamingos from Oriental Trading Company a little makeover, then sat them atop gold spray painted pineapples. They just perched in the pineapple leaves perfectly!
The backdrop was so easy to create and I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out. We painted a piece of wood a pretty blue color, glued various palm leaves around the edges and added in some pretty tropical flowers. The best part was the pretty in pink acrylic Aloha from Letters to You. Love how it just pops off the light blue background!
And how cute are the flamingo cupcake toppers? You can find the tutorial to create your own here. They were so cute we couldn't resist creating a pineapple version too!
I love decorating our chairs and these hula skirts were the perfect addition! I can't wait to see the littles wear them at our luau on our final day of Under the Sea Camp this summer!
And that tablecloth... can you believe it was spray painted?! Such an easy DIY that definitely packs a big punch! I simply laid down various shapes and sizes of faux palm leaves on top of a white polyester tablecloth and spray painted the entire surface with a bubblegum pink color. Once the paint dried, I removed the leaves and voila, a faux batik print tablecloth! Pretty happy with how it turned out!
