What a fabulous pool party. There are so many ideas and details that I just adore. For instance the table garland, runner, and chandelier made out of pool noodles. This party would work great for a gender neutral birthday party or even a tween party.

My favorite Pool Party ideas and elements from this awesome summer time event are:

  • The adorable lifeguard chairs
  • The cute and simple cake
  • The pool tile table cover
  • The fun chandelier and table garland made out of pool noodles
  • The upside down push pops filled with blue jello
  • The fun swim sign made out of block letters
  • The beach ball cake pops
  • and MORE!

Summer Pool Party Details:

This is what Brittany said about planning the party- ”Is there anything that makes you feel like summer more than a pool party?
When Birthday Express asked me to help launch their new Splashin’ Pool Party Collection by styling a party for them, I jumped at the chance! I love the classic color palette and the cute details in the collection like “Marco” and “Polo” interspersed into the pieces”!

Taking a cue from the collection’s style, I decided to concentrate on the primary color palette with a mix of light blue and polka dots. I bought three pool noodles at Target and cut them into simple slices with a large kitchen knife. I used them on several projects, including the table runner and also the garland for the backdrop. All I did was glue them with hot glue to make the runners.

I made the chandelier with pieces left over from my other pool noodle projects. I simply strung them with fishing wire and hung them from my trusty plant hangers that I have used for tons of other chandeliers.

The chipboard letters were accentuated with blue paillettes, which are basically large sequins. I glued them on with hot glue.

The cake was super easy too! It was a homemade cake with storebought icing! All I did was swirl blue icing with white icing to give it the water effect. For decor, I used green striped straws with some of the stickers from the collection glued onto foam pieces and then glued onto the straws. So, so easy!

My favorite part of the entire collection are the little lifeguard chairs! There are SO many uses for them! They could be place card holders, cake pop stands, anything! But, I used push pops filled with blue Jello to mimic water and they fit perfectly!  They also come with super cute lifeguard megaphones and life preservers, but they kept blowing away from my table because it was windy that day!

A little polka dot washi tape really dressed up the simple crates from Hobby Lobby that I have had for years!

The adorable Beach Ball cake pops were made by the lovely Autumn Lynn’s Chocolate Sins. I love the colors on these! And they were delicious too! I mean, her cake pops are on another level delicious! I displayed them in dollar store sand pails with some red bag shred. Stickers from the collection and some washi tape dressed up the buckets.

Hope you loved my pool party! If you love this collection like I do, check it out here at Birthday Express! There are a ton of other pieces”!

    Everything just seems so perfect. The blend of colors illuminated the area into something that is more lively and attractive fitting for a pool party. They really know what they are doing.
