Here’s what Leanne had to say about planning this party- “This was a lovely party we threw for my daughter Sienna and her best friend Tess at the beginning of the year. The girls had both asked for a pool party but Sienna’s birthday actually falls in August so we made the decision to postpone and have it closer to Tess’ birthday which was right in the middle of summer. Once the pool party idea was set we then wanted to come up with a cool theme to go with it so enter the retro pink flamingo!

Tash (Tess’ mum) is a super genius graphic designer so she came up with the amazing invitation and party stationery that set the tone for the entire day.  Both the girls love blue so we incorporated this into the colour theme – perfect also to tie in with the pool!

We set up three different tables – the dessert and candy table, the ice cream bar and the drinks station.

The Dessert and Candy table showcased the gorgeous cake by Jacki from Blissfully Sweet cakes.
I had also wanted to do something different to cake pops on sticks but still love the idea of cake balls. Jacki’s interpretation of the cake ball tower I asked for was just perfect!  Again the lovely ombre colour and a striking element to the table.  To finish with some more ombre, Jacki made delicious marshmallows that were a hit! Add in the candy and the table was complete and a big favourite on the day.

On the ice cream bar, very cute cupcakes that looked like ice cream sundaes meant we didn’t need to worry about melting ice cream. The jars were filled with ice cream cones and wafers for when we served the ice cream later in the party. The drinks station included a stunning drink dispenser filled with pink lemonade – perfect for the hot day!

We kicked off the party with a very cute photo booth that we created by painting an old door pink and white. The kids had so much fun picking a little prop from the basket to use while they had their photo taken and we got some fabulous shots to send to them as part of their thank you note.

Some other fun activities included a water balloon fight, lucky dips, glittery tattoos, nail painting and of course, loads of fun in the pool.

A little dressing room was created with our Ikea bookcase so that everybody had somewhere to store their bag and clothes while they were in the pool – the perfect way to prevent lost clothes and shoes.

Party favour boxes were made using mini ice-cream tubs which went great with our summer theme. The goodies inside included cute  ice cream themed stationery items and lip gloss.

I hope you have enjoyed all the little details that went into our fun pool party! It was fantastic to watch the kids have so much fun.”
