Cricut Explore Air 2
Being new to the world of Cricut, we were a bit apprehensive before getting started.  But those nerves quickly disappeared as soon as we turned on our new Cricut Explore Air 2!

The Cricut Explore Air 2 was so simple to set up and downloading the new Cricut Design Space was easy as 1-2-3. Literally!

We were asked to style a housewarming party and with the warm days of summer almost here, we decided to turn it into a tropical, flamingo inspired get together!  Because who wouldn’t want to “flamingle “into a new home!?  Cricut Design Space  made it so easy to search and input all the fun pineapple and flamingo images we needed for our decor along with some new amazing fonts!

With pineapples and flamingos as the main theme for our styled housewarming party, we knew we wanted to use a variety of bright and bold summer colors along with a few touches of gold; because, what’s a party without a little gold glam?!  Cricut  had the perfect colors in vinyl and adhesive foil for all of our DIY projects!   And can we just say, we are now beyond obsessed with vinyl  and want to personalize and decorate every surface in our home!
The Table:

We styled the housewarming party out on our deck to take advantage of the beautiful sunshine and warm breezes!  The table was set with a crisp, white linen and then layered a piece of fabulous wrapping paper we found at Target that brought in all the colors of our party!

The centerpiece and focal point of our table was a DIY flower box centerpiece! We simply added a few coats of white paint and then broke out our new Cricut Explore Air 2 to personalize it for our party!

We found the perfect pineapple image in Cricut Design Space and then cut the different layers of the pineapple using Adhesive Gold Foil, Sunshine Yellow Vinyl and Caribbean Blue Vinyl.

But, we couldn’t stop with just the pineapple! We added a cute, little, Hot Pink Vinyl flamingo on top of the pineapple to bring in a pop of color and our “flamingle on in” theme to life!  We fell in love with the Suburbia font and created Adhesive Gold Foil and  Hot Pink Vinyl letters spelling “Our New Home”.  We adore the way it turned out!

We topped the centerpiece with tropical leaves, two hollowed out pineapples filled with fresh, tropical flowers and a white and gold ceramic pineapple!  We found cute pink and yellow pineapple buckets and lined them with fake tropical leaves and then filled the buckets with fresh pineapple.  The pineapple not only served as a sweet treat, but was a great way to hold our lawn flamingos upright and ready to party!

The Place Settings:

We always love to layer varying colors and textures with our place settings and the place settings for our tropical housewarming are no exception! We started with a wicker, tropical fan as the base and then placed either a Caribbean blue or fuchsia floral plate on top of that and then finished it off with either a flamingo or pineapple dessert plate!

We found gold rimmed plastic tumblers and knew they would be the perfect canvas for some petite, Hot Pink Vinyl flamingos!

These are seriously so easy to make! The Cricut Explore Air 2 cut all the flamingos at one time and all we had to do was pull away the excess Vinyl with our weeding tool and placed the flamingos on the cups!  We also added the word “flamingle!” to the tumblers in Adhesive Gold Foil for a fun detail!

And can we talk about those pineapple stir sticks and paper straws?? To die for!

The newly decorated tumblers were placed on pink napkins along with a tropical leaf printed utensil!  We loved how these napkins and utensils went with both our party theme and color palette!

The Bar Cart:
