Let your kids cool off during the dog days of summer by hosting a Surfin’ Pool Party!
If you are lucky enough to live by an ocean – plan your party for the beach! For those of us that are a little more land-locked, find a local pool to host your party.
Invite your guests with this darling invitation from Tiny Prints. Request that your guests come wearing beach theme clothing – Hawaiian print swim trunks or shirts, sundresses, flowers in the girl’s hair.
You can really have some fun decorating for this party….have your kids help you prop up surfboards, and stuff wetsuits to make faux-surfers. Turn beach towels into tablecloths, have a surfing video playing on the TV in the background, and popular surf music playing to get everyone in the mood. Looking for suggestions? Reggae music or anything by The Beach Boys would be perfect!
Disposable paper goods are definitely the easiest way to go – so check out these supplies at Birthday in a Box. All that’s left? The perfect party favor! Fill up small canvas beach bags with candy, an inflatable beach ball and little toys. Make it easy on yourself by ordering them thru Birthday in a Box, too!
