Party Invitation Ideas

Pool themes are a source for tons of ideas and coming up with a couple of examples for invitations is just the start of the fun. Writing the info on an inflatable beach ball can be a great interactive invitation or a pirate-style treasure map rolled up and sealed like a scroll. Simple objects that have enough writing space on them can be used in the place of the usual cards. Now, if you would prefer to print the invitations, the creative limit for ideas here can only be one’s imagination, as long as the theme remains around the same water-splashing fun idea as the rest of the party.

Pool-Themed Cakes

How about a scuba diving cake, or a mermaid cake, or a pond-shaped cake with a little frog peeking out from under a lily leaf. Keeping to the pool party theme is even easier if you relax the rules a little, like having an ocean influence attend the party too. Sharks, dolphins, or a jolly Octopus and many more like starfish and seahorses can be incorporated into the poolside party for that extra splash of fun. Many party planners and bakeries offer their skill at making or sourcing delicious cakes on a theme, all you need to ensure is that you plan well in advance for these kinds of cakes, they require a lot of work and are very time-consuming.

Poolside Decorations

The basket overflows with ideas for decorating around the pool and backyard. If you want to get creative and have dad play handyman for a few hours, then maybe you could build a balloon palm tree or balloon volcano, or pick from a range of cool sculpture ideas using balloons, they are inexpensive and great for all parties and they don’t always have to be helium filled. Pool noodles are basically a swimming standard for kids, but did you know they can be transformed into a big variety of decorations, like chopping one up and gluing a popsicle stick into each piece and stringing them up into a garland. A bunch of styrofoam balls painted like beach balls, strung up together also make a fun garland.
