A Pink Flamingo Christmas

by CruiseReady

If you like the warmth of the tropics, add a whimsical tropical touch to your Christmas decor with pink flamingo ornaments, cards, gift wrap, and Christmas yard flamingos.

Want to add a warm, tropical feel to your yuletide season? Make it a pink flamingo Christmas!

Silly? Maybe. Maybe not. Flamboyant? Well, yes. And what's wrong with a little flamboyance and silliness, anyway? A good part of the holiday season is all about fun and fantasy, anyway, isn't it?

I live in Florida. Around here, we don't get snow. Oh, once every fifteen years or so, some white stuff will swirl around in the air for maybe five or ten minutes, but that's about it. That's just the way we like it.

We like warm. So do flamingos, so I say: If you live in a warm climate, why pretend you don't at Christmas time? Embrace your natural surroundings, and decorate tropically! String some lights in those palm trees, and put Santa hats on a few pink flamingos. Hang a few tropical birds on your tree. Make it a warm and tropical flamingo Christmas.

Even if you live way up north, but would love to get away to the tropics now and then, why not add a fun and funky tropical touch to your holidays with pink flamingo Christmas decorations and accessories?

Flamingos for Your Yuletide Yard


Light Up Your Yard

With a Flamboyant Flamingo

This Christmas flamingo sports not only a Santa hat, but also his own lights - fifty of them.  Unlike the real thing, this one has a skeleton of metal, so he'll stand strong.  Instead of fragile feathers, he's covered in weather resistant polyester. This bright and happy Christmas Flamingo sports 35 lights, too!


At 28" tall, he's not quite life sized, but close to it.  The smallest species of Flamingo, the James's Flamingo, found in parts of South America, grows to about 35  inches tall.)  Maybe this one's a teenager.

What an impression he'll make in the yard!

Flamboyance is one term for a flock of flamingos.

Another is stand.

Set of Four Christmas Mingos

Have Your Very Own Flamboyance

If you'd prefer a stand, or flamboyance, of these tropical beauties on your lawn for the holidays, here' a set of four.

There's one, dressed as Saint Nick.  He's pink.

Then, there are three brown toned birds, complete with antlers, playing the part of the jolly bird's reindeer.

Yard Decorations with a Flamingo Flair

Get in the Pink Christmas Spirit

I live in Florida.  Around here, we don't get snow.  Oh, once every fifteen years or so, some white stuff will swirl around in the air for a few minutes, but that's about it.

But, we do have hibiscus flowers, palm trees, and tropical birds.  Some of us even decorate with them for the holidays.  

We see lots of yards with an 'out of his element' Frosty the Snowman plunked down on top of the grass.  But, we also see lots of palms with strings of colored lights wound around their trunks and hanging from their fronds. And, there are always a few yards with a surfing Santa, or a few holiday flamingos.  Or both.

Here's a short video of one yard in which the Jolly Old Elf's sleigh is pulled not by reindeer, but by big pink birds.  Looks fine to me.

Pink and Pretty Outdoor Lights

Indoor / Outdoor Flamingo String Lights

If you'd prefer a more subtle touch , perhaps a string of special lights to adorn your porch, front door, or entryway is for you.

There are several different ones to choose from on Amazon.

The ten light set shown here has a decidedly sweet appearance, but others are available with a slightly bolder and brighter look.

The cool thing about this set is that it runs on two AA batteries, so there's no long power cord to mess with.

You do't Have to Live in Florida to Put Flamingos in Your Yard

These are in Fairbanks, Alaska!

If you live in a less than tropical climate, and have hesitated to put plastic flamingos on your lawn because the weather seems unsuitable for such yard decor, think again!

The above picture proves that this particular species (the plastic one) can survive just about anywhere.  After all, if they can tolerate Alaska, they'll probably thrive where you live!

As a precaution, this homeowner has given some of his stand warm winter accessories..  

Wonder if he adds little Santa hats to their heads during the holiday season?

CruiseReady, Do you know of any flamingo-handled silverware and flamingo-patterned dinnerware? They'd look spectacular on a holiday table featuring Depression pink glasses, pitchers and vases.

The LED light Christmas flamingo with the Santa hat.... Does anyone have a lead on where to find these? Lowes and Amazon have both been out of stock since Christmas and we are dying to track them down!

!Dogby - Looks like we have something in common. My brother has a big one in his yard all year, but no Christmas flamingos. Yet.

I have a sister who is flamingo crazed. She does have flamingo ornaments for her trees and big ones with lights in her yard.
