Pink flamingos Toronto

Pink Flamingos TorontoPink Flamingos Toronto

One sunny Sunday afternoon we decided to spend sometime in the beautiful city of Toronto while taking our children skiing at the nearby mountains (read more about shipping your skis here)

Travelling along the highway I realized what a pristine city it is, especially with the sun catching the high rise office buildings. I realized how lucky we are to live next to such a multicultural city, with or without Rob Ford !

Our impulsive drive took us through many neighbourhoods full of character, amazing gardens, ornate furniture and pink flamingos! What pink flamingos Toronto! A yard full of pink flamingos Toronto . Not only did this zany lawn greeting display take us by surprise, it also slowed traffic and put a huge smile on faces of people passing by.

After being amazed by the great fun reaction people had to pink flamingos Toronto, I decided to look into the history of the pink flamingo. Not only has the pink flamingo lawn ornament been around since the mid 50’s, it was designed by a gentleman named Don Featherstone. The idea behind Don’s pink flamingo lawn ornament was a way to give people an original way to make their house look less humdrum, Pink flamingos were a pretty way to decorate outside.

I also learned to my surprise that pink flamingos are still as popular as ever and have yet again been revived from the mid 50’s. These, dare I say ‘tacky’ lawn ornaments, have become a very popular, fun, maybe even crazy way to declare to the neighbourhood of a special occasion. For example, birthdays, anniversaries, retirements etc. pretty much any special occasion, or simply just for fun. I think you can find lawn greeting companies here. These companies specialize in lawn greetings to surprise that special someone and I know they still use pink flamingo lawn ornaments. I also found one in my area, birthdaysigns.ca, who I will be calling in the near future.
