Hang a weather resistant Personalized Pool Party Banner in the area where guests will enter the party. The banner includes plastic tabs or metal grommets for ease in hanging.
Attach a bouquet of helium filled balloons to a light post or mailbox so there will be no mistaking where the party is!
Because your party is centered on the pool setting and the water, decorating for this party will be very simple. Create spectacular brightly colored tables with a Pool Party Ensemble and you’ll make short work of your decorating. This ensemble contains balloons, streamers, curling ribbon, a beach ball mylar balloon, a sun centerpiece, Fun in the Sun Swirls, a hanging sun and more to match your theme.
If you are hosting your party in the evening, string twinkle lights all around your pool area…they aren’t just for the holidays anymore!
Balloons can economically transform any room into a festive space in a matter of minutes by using some of the following ideas:
*Tie curling ribbon to helium filled balloons and group the balloons together. (Odd numbers look best: 3, 5, or 7.) Place groupings of balloons around the party room.
*If you choose not to use helium, tie balloons to varying lengths of curling ribbon and hang from a porch ceiling or from a light fixture over the party table. Mix a few Fun in the Sun Swirls amongst the hanging balloons.
Streamers offer an economical way to splash lots of color around the site of the party. The streamers can be twisted after they are anchored to a ceiling wall or table for a more dimensional look.
If you are serving a sit-down meal, setting a table with the party ware including the tablecloth, cups, plates, napkins, and cutlery is the fastest way to create a focal point in a party area. Start by setting your table with all the goodies in the Pool Party Ensemble, creating a place setting at the table for each guest.
If you are serving your food buffet style, place the tablecloth over the buffet table, and arrange all the party ware from the Pool Party Ensemble at the beginning of the buffet line. The decorated buffet can then serve as the focal point in your party area.
Beach towels with bright stripes make great table covers!
Place your pool party cake in the center of your table as a centerpiece…the kids will love the close up view!
If you wish to have assigned seating, use small beach pails or beach balls and write names on them with a paint pen. Place one pail or ball on each plate to serve as a place card.
Scatter sand and a few shells across your tables like confetti.
Pool noodles and inflatable pool toys in varying shapes make great decorating props. Lay a couple of pool noodles down the center of the table, or prop inflatable pool rings over chair backs.
Tie helium filled balloon sprays to pairs of brand new flip-flops as creative balloon weights.
Sprinkle individually wrapped white Life Savers on your tabletops just as you would use confetti.
Place a pair of sunglasses at each place setting and tuck a napkin and cutlery in the fold of the glasses – instant napkin ring!
