Hi my name is Fie. I like a few things, bars, pretty cocktails and flamingos. For years I always knew I wanted my very own bar. Hence the creation of Flamingo Fie’s.
It all started when looking for placemats for the dining room table. I stumbled across these flamingo coasters and was in love. Mums tend to be right and yet again my Mum was. She said it might be a bit busy for the table but perfect for the bar. Hence the basis of Flamingo Fie’s was born.
I’d long lusted after an Oliver Bonas bar cart but could not justify the price. I found a perfect one from Dunelm, similar here. It looks way more expensive than it actually is and definitely can store a drink or two.
Every Christmas, my Mum and Dad get my brother and I joke presents in our stockings. I’ve had a spurtle, a lemon zester and this year these lovely flamingo glass cocktail stirrers. My Mum spent ages hunting for them and I do love them. Such a simple touch but so fitting for the bar. Also meant a lot that she remembered about the flamingo theme, as at that point I only had the coasters!
Is it possible to ever go into Ikea without coming out with something by mistake?! For once I didn’t buy unneccesary candles but I did spot these glasses in another customers trolley. So I turned around and went to find them. The short tumblers are perfect for negronis, whilst the larger tumblers great for mojitos or any long drinks.
As mentioned in my Cosmo post, the Stand Tall & Be Fabulous sign was a Next bargain. Silly but I love the sentiment behind it, straightening your back and being tall does wonders for your inner self confidence.
No bar is complete without some form of tacky sign. Right?! Would only be fitting for Flamingo Fie’s to have a neon flamingo. Looks just as good off, as it does on. Warning, it is definitely bright! It does finish off the bar nicely. Definitely my personality summed up.
The bar is tropical so a pina colada seemed oh so fitting! Wonder how many drink pictures I will end up having here?!
It’s clearer with the sign off, just how all the flamingo touches fit together. The airline lounge cocktail sign, I bought years ago in Portobello market.
