  • The beach ball jello
  • The cupcakes with “sand” and beach balls on top
  • The fruit push pops
  • The fun straws
  • The whiteboard filled with fun facts
  • The drink cannisters
  • and MORE!

Jaclyn said this about planning the party-“We just celebrated my son’s 2nd birthday and I knew I wanted to have a pool party. The theme instantly came to mind to revolve around Beach Balls but I honestly did not realize how difficult it would be to find really cute beach ball inspired decorations. So off I went into my DIY mind and I couldn’t be more happy about the finished party.
Beach Ball plate decor: This idea came to me while strolling the aisles of Target. I saw stacks of colored plates and while being discouraged that I still couldn’t find any beach ball decor I thought how cute it would be to cut the plates and create my own “vintage” looking beach ball decor. I cut half-moons out of each of the plates and then glued them accordingly on a full plate. Then added a white circle to the top and voila! Beach Ball decorations. I ended up using them as garland, hanging them with fishing line. (To pierce the plates I used a thumbtack and then fished the line through)
Beach Ball Foam Balls: This idea I snatched up from PINTERST: From Studio DIY. I glued these to wooden skewers and used as decor, as well as sliced a potion of three of them, slide in a label (for dessert, drinks and pizza) then placed them in a cup filled with brown sugar.
Beach Ball Desserts: The cake and cupcakes I made. For the cake I baked a round cake using a cake mold, then frosted it with homemade buttercream and decorated with red, yellow, blue & white m&m’s.
Cupcakes were also homemade and then topped with homemade buttercream colored with Duff’s Color Gel’s (which I HIGHLY recommend) and topped with a little brown sugar for sand and a cupcake topper from Hobby Lobby.
The cookies – —– SERIOUSLY??!! THOSE COOKIES WERE SOOOOO STINKIN CUTE!!! My mom surprised me with them from a lady in her town. All mom did was show her one picture of Hank in his shirt and she went from there. They are A-MAZ-ING! So happy to have had them at Hanks Party.
Kids shirts: Once again, I couldn’t not find ANYTHING with a beach ball on it —- At that point I would have even made the kids where sweatshirts if I found one with a beach ball on it! Crazy. So I ended up deciding I’d just paint shirts for the kids myself.
Jello Pool: Made blue jello and then topped off with little candies that looked like beach balls. I was inspired by a few jello cakes I’ve seen with Teddy Graham’s floating in the pool.
Lollypops: I printed off some beach balls and taped them to lollypops for the kiddos.
Ice Cream: My parents own an ice cream parlor in Wickenburg, AZ (Chaparral Homemade Ice Cream) and it’s only fitting that we ALWAYS have homemade ice cream at any event. Well! My mom and dad created adorable beach ball ice cream’s that we included with each cupcake. So super cute!
Punch: For the punch I chose red punch, blue koolaid and yellow lemonade. Each had a themed pool tag on them that I created with the names of: Sunburnt Punch (Red) , Pool Water (Blue) , Don’t Pee In The Pool (Yellow) and an alcoholic one titled: “No Lifeguard On Duty.”
Fruit Push Up Pops: Made fruit push up pops using the themed colors of blue, red and yellow. (Pineapple, blackberries and strawberries).
Little Extra’s: We had a ton of beach balls all around the pool and house. I also blew up a little floaty tube, filled the center with sand and then placed mini sunblocks in them for the kiddos. Bought blue flannel material that resembled pool water for our table cloths. Oh yes, took a garage sale sign from Dollar Tree and recreated it into the “Pool Time” sign. I also used a beach ball from a gift bag I bought from Dollar Tree as a decor on the sign. Used my easel from IKEA to create a welcome sign with facts about Hank on it. (Saw that idea on Pinterest) And I think that covers it all.

    Too Cute!! I love the labels on the drinks (I might have to “borrow” that idea – my daughter’s b-day is in July, and usually has a pool party). I also like the jello “pool”. Great Job!!

    I have been looking EVERYWHERE including Hobby Lobby for those cupcake toppers. Do you know of anywhere that still has something like that?!?! I can’t find anything at Party City, online, etc. I keep finding printable digital files, but that’s not what I want. :(

    I would even be willing to buy those from you depending on the quantity of them.. I know crazy… but my cupcakes just won’t be the same ha ha ‘

    So bummed out :(
