The Party Inspiration
This Splashing into Summer pool party celebrates a little boy birthday with sun and fun and loads of bright colors.
The Party Tables
Bright and cheerful, playful rainbow hues covered the pool deck and party tables. Beach towels, balls and fun cupcake wrappers created a sunny display for the birthday boy. The Dessert Table
A table of snacks began with an aqua blue fabric layered with a lime green polka dot fabric. Sea grasses and beach balls brought a breezy beach feeling to the table. Small shrimp skewers, fishbowl Jello treats, and sparkling lime sodas were arranged on the table. Gumdrop cupcakes were decorated with umbrellas and placed on a cake stand created from a vase filled with limes topped with a cake circle embellished with pretty, patterned ribbon.
A second table was set for the cupcakes and ice cream buffet. Covered with more aqua blue fabric, a tower of birthday cupcakes took center stage. We created the cupcake stand with clear, square vases filled with candies and sandwiched cake circles trimmed in brightly colored, wide ribbon for each tier of the display. Birthday Wishes cupcake wrappers made our frumpy, homemade cupcakes pretty in an instant! For the ice cream, we made a sundae bar… kid style. We filled bowls with fun, colorful candy toppings and pre-scooped cups of ice cream and served them in clear plastic cups skirted in colorful cupcake wrappers.
Swimming and treats! The beauty of a pool party is that the activities are so easy. A few beach balls thrown in the pool and a few classic pool games was all it took to keep the guests smiling and happy.
The Party Favors
We gave a beach towel and small beach ball to each guest as a party favor.
