Tropical Flamingo Dining | Life and Linda

Tropical Flamingo Dining

This tablescape is set up in our beach entry.  A great place to keep our toes wet and enjoy a nice meal. Years ago, we had a tropical party where 4 of our guests decided to set up their table in the water.  A Very cool idea!

I have extra tables, so I decided to spray paint the table and chairs in a bright hot pink.  We have several of these aqua blue umbrellas and they go perfect with the flamingo plates, so I am using one in the beach entry for shade.


Flamingo plates with matching napkins.  The bamboo flatware gives the table setting a tropical look.  Palm leaves are scattered about for the centerpiece.

A tiki guy holds a pretty pink bromeliad.  I tucked in a pink flamingo.
Gotta have some flamingo sunglasses!
Our cute little rubber ducky is always floating along.



 Two flamingos hold the two platters.  I am serving crab cakes, shrimp cocktail and grilled chicken kabobs with a tropical cocktail.


Salt and pepper flamingos add  some whimsy.








Cute flamingo pillows from Michaels.

  1. Linda, your beach entry was the perfect setting for your bright pink table and chairs! This is so inviting with your gorgeous pool as the background. The flamingo plates and napkins are so cute and festive. The crab cakes and shrimp cocktail look delicious set up poolside. I could sit for hours on your chaise and take in the ambiance. It is always fun to blog hop with you!

  2. Cute, Cute ,Cute, Linda! You have thought of so many darling details! How do you have time with all you do to spray paint a table and chairs?!!
    Now, we could do some serious talking sitting around your tropical table and pool! The drinks and snacks look very tempting. As a child those little umbrellas thrilled me and they still make me smile.
    You outdid yourself. I love all the your cute dishes and flamingos everywhere!

  10. Oh my gosh, how cool is that?!! Literally and figuratively, Linda, this is definitely the answer to all the heat everyone is dealing with in alfresco dining. Even the most hesitant guest would want to go there, given that dinner menu you're serving. The pink flamingos are ruling this roost - so cute in all the ways you have them serving up the scene! Very unique and creative!

  12. To sit at the table and have your toes in the water?!!!! What could be better when dining alfresco than that?! How creative to paint the table to match your theme! Flamingoes are still so popular and your set such a fun table with all of your fun flamingo dishes and accent pieces. The tiered tray with the pair of flamingoes is too cute!
