Pool Party Ideas! Fun Food & Party Printables by Amy Locurto. Living Locurto. Pool drinks

It’s time to have fun in the sun! A Pool Party is a great way to celebrate summer.

You don’t have to wait for a birthday party to have a splashing good time. As a matter of fact, I threw this Pool Party together in just a few hours to have some fun on an early release school day!

I haven’t had a party in a long time, so I had a blast getting to use my new Printable Pool Party Collection along with the Party with Amy Locurto scrapbook paper and embellishments.

All of these ideas are simple and easy to do last minute… I promise! I hope you enjoy these fun Pool Party fun food and decorating ideas!

Pool Party Ideas

A pool party dessert table doesn’t have to be super fancy because more than likely it’s just going to get wet! Just a few simple treats can make a party so much fun!

I covered a table with a beach towel and hung a banner from my Pool Party Printable Collection along with cutting some triangles from the Flip Flop paper in the Party with Amy Locurto Collection and it turned out pretty cute for a last minute party!

I LOVE the cute mini banners in the Party with Amy Locurto Pool Collection. And of course, I can never get enough of the favor bags. (All will be available in my shop later today.)

I love using mason jars for drinks! With colorful paper straws (get them here) and party flags from my Pool Collection, you can’t go wrong!

Pool Party Dessert Ideas! Teddy Grahams in pudding. Fun Food & Party Printables by Amy Locurto LivingLocurto.com

I’ve seen these cute teddy graham treats all over the internet. I didn’t have time to make blue jello for water, so since my kids love chocolate, I got pudding snack packs instead and used blue sprinkles to cover the top. The sand is brown sugar. The kids were amazed that they could eat the sand!

These fruit cones might be my favorite treat! I filled the pail with grapes, then was able to easily place the cones into the pail and they stayed perfectly in place.

I was inspired by these adorable treats submitted on Living Creative Thursday and had to make some flip flop cookies. So cute! The sand castle was made with brown sugar and those little measuring cups you get with children’s medicine. I always have fun drink umbrellas handy and ready to go!

Best last minute party ever!! I went to the grocery store at 1pm, then got the food ready, printed the printables and had everything assembled and ready to by 4pm. This is an easy party that anyone can do!

    What a wonderfully cute party! I love the idea of the fruit in the waffle cones. I am planning my daughter’s ice cream sundae party and added these as an idea. Thank you for showing people that they can make those cute flip flops out of something other than Nutter Butters. I have a peanut allergic child and have always ignored parties with those shown, but now I know I can do it myself. Thank you for your wonderful ideas and for sharing them with us!
