Last weekend we teamed up with one of our FAVE bloggers, the ever-so-fabulous, Miss Kelly Golightly, for a pre-Cinco De Mayo #FlamingoFiesta! And let me tell you- this girl knows how to throw a party!
Naturally, our favorite part of ANY party is the food. (Duh.) Kelly’s flamingo-themed fare was out of this world! With some help from her “food stylist” (yep- that’s a thing) Hope, these girls created a spread that almost looked too beautiful to eat!
From flamingo shaped watermelon, bowls made out of pineapples, and a tower of macaroons; we had plenty of pretty snacks throughout the day.
The drinks were just as adorable- in fact we were sippin’ straight out of L*Space curly straws! Kelly mixed up some amazing libations with two of our fave drink go-to’s: Skinny Girl Cocktails and Nektar mixers. A match made in cocktail heaven!
Stay tuned for our next #FlamingoFiesta blog post; where we’ll re-cap our second favorite part of any party…the fashion!

Hi loves! Kelly Golightly here and I’m thrilled to be hosting a pool party with my friends at L*Space on May 3rd in Palm Springs! I wanted to give you a sneak peek at what’s inspiring our Poolside Glamour Pool Party + a fun cocktail recipe so that you may be inspired to host a pool party of your own…
Pool parties are a great time to have fun and unwind with your best babes for a day of sunshine, sips…and swanning! always look to the king of poolside glamour, Slim Aarons, for party inspiration. And I love to include my Swannie Golightly and must-have ‘mingos.
Every good Slim Aarons party includes an element of humor and surprise and since our party is the weekend before Cinco de Mayo, we’re having a flamingo fiesta! Think bright pops of pink as well as citrus hues…you can see more of my inspiration over on my L*Space Pinterest board!
And be sure to follow along on Instagram for sneak-peeks as I prep for our party this week!
But for now, a cocktail recipe to get you in the mood for poolside lounging:
Palm Springs Punch
2 parts Skinnygirl White Peach Margarita
2 parts grapefruit soda
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Serve cold over ice + garnish with a lime wedge
See you at the pool!
