Kara's Party Ideas Pool/Beach Party | Kara's Party Ideas

i’m finally posting the pool party i did a few weeks ago! i’ve been so busy lately with a wedding and a couple of parties :).

i printed most of the paper goods via paper and cake…so cute!! love her stuff!

here’s the invites that were sent out a few weeks before the party {purchased on oriental trading}…

let the fun begin…
havin‘ fun in the pool…
i covered these adorable tarts {that my sisters best friend made} with whip cream, kiwi’s, and a mango syrup. they were so yummy!

i got this unfinished surf board on ebay a few years ago..and painted it…

i made the cupcake toppers out of colorful cut up straws {and paper and cake’s adorable printables}…

we covered the cake with brown sugar for ‘sand’…
i stuck pinwheels on top for an added beach effect :).

the beach ball sippers i found online…

i bought some fun wooden surfboards at michaels that all the kids painted…

dad’s even enjoy painting! :)…

    That is SO clever to use a beach ball for the invites. You could just write the info on a regular beach ball and send it deflated, too, instead of buying from Oriental Trading.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    This is great! When you purchase printables from sites such as Paper and Cake, from what type of paper do you use to print the templates? Thanks!!
