Flamingo Fun!

Last week was crazy and I missed doing a tablescape for Let's Dish with the theme 'Summer Fun'...so I decided to do one this week!
I took my inspiration from these  Flamingo trays I've had for several years and I just 'found' again (does that happen to you?)
I have two of them I bought on Ebay years ago
I think they are so cute and so a tablescape was born!
I added some bright plates and cute Flamingo glasses a friend sent me awhile back.
Staying with the 'theme' but showing some restraint...well you know what happened don't you??
Flamingo's Gone Wild!
Every time I turned around another Flamingo had sneaked it's way onto the table!
This guy jumped over from a vignette and brought a pink candle with him
The salt & pepper shakers said don't forget us!
Vase and shells...ok, that makes a nice centerpiece
But as usual Flamingos don't know when to stop
Each place setting now has a Flamingo Bell on it! 
Really???
Yes, really!
It's a good thing I'm very fond of Flamingos
Because this could have gone REALLY wrong
but I hope it didn't!
After all....who doesn't love a Flamingo
See...I did show some restraint on the napkins and used cute shell napkin rings
OK...you got me, no I don't have Flamingo napkin rings because if I did...yep they would be on this table! 

I had fun doing this and I hope you had fun visiting!

I'm joining 

Hugs,
Linda

I think it's absolutely beautiful and so COLORFUL! My favorite word. I don't think I have a flamingo, if you can believe that.

I really, really like those candle holders! The way the candle can just slide down past the flamingo's neck...cool!!!

So cute. I have a flamingo napkin holder from a cruise to the Bahamas, that's about it. But they are beautiful birds. xo

Great flamingo table and so much fun to create. Great pinks.

A very fun table. We can be glad you did not have settings for eight!
That would require a lot of bells.

Something about this is making me want to dance. Oh wait, maybe that is the flamenco. Too cute :)

Linda, this is adorable. I like the colorful stripe plates with the trays, and those pink polka dot plates are the perfect topper. All your flamingo details are fun, fun, fun. Do you fill the cubbies with flamingos?
