I’m going to share some really easy, but fun decorations to add to your summer pool party. Whether you have a built in pool, a slip n’ slide or are hosting it at a city Splash Pad – these will really add a pop of color and fun themed elements to your party!

Flip Flop Garland:

Hang a felt Happy Birthday garland along with a garland made of Dollar Store flip flops and scraps of fabric. Nothing says summer weather like flip-flops and I love the way this garland turned out!!

Pool Party Treats & Favors:

The colorful paper lanterns were hung using fishing line. Various treats were overflowing from the sand buckets bought at the dollar store. Each side of the table had one of these giant fish balloons (purchased at a party supply store) that were absolutely adorable!

**One additional idea is to fill a sand bucket with floral foam, top it with brown sugar (to look like sand) and then stick these cute Marshmallow Beach Balls in them on skewers. Another bucket could have gummy sharks, gummy worms and Swedish Fish kabobs. Wouldn’t that be cute?!!

I couldn’t stop eating the HiChews. They were my favorite! But I loved how the gold fish crackers and salt water taffy really fit in with the “water” theme of the party!

Each child at the party got to take one of these giant fish balloons tied to a bottle of bubbles. They were squealing with excitement when they learned they each got one!

Pool Party Favors:

In addition to fun animal shaped goggles that each guest got to take home they had fun pool floaties and large beach balls for the kids to play with! Here is my daughter Lucy all ready to swim!

    1. She was on vacation in California where she hit up a party supply store and found them along with the other party supplies so I’m not sure. Sorry about that. They are darling, aren’t they?!
