Flip Flop Cookies and More Pool Party Ideas
Summer is in full swing and that means pool party time! It’s time to have fun in the sun and I’m excited to share some of my BEST Pool Party Ideas, cute Flip Flop Cookies and more easy recipes!
You don’t have to wait for a birthday party to have a splashing good time this summer. 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 Pool Party Printable Designs along with the Party with Amy Locurto scrapbook paper and embellishments.
All of these pool party ideas and recipes are simple and easy to do last minute… I promise! I hope you enjoy these fun Pool Party Ideas and recipes!

Pool Party Dessert Table
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!
Anytime you can use cute mason jars for drinks, do it. With colorful paper straws and party flags from my Pool Collection, you can’t go wrong!
Easy No Bake Flip Flop Cookies
I was inspired by these adorable treats submitted on Living Creative Thursday and had to make some flip flop cookies for our party. They are so cute!
The sand castle was made with brown sugar and those little measuring cups you get with children’s medicine.
Always have fun drink umbrellas handy and ready to go for decorating you pool party. Scroll down to get the directions for making these sweet treats!
Easy Pudding Pool Party Treats
I’ve seen cute pudding pool party teddy graham treats all over the internet. I didn’t have time to make blue jello for water.
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!
Simple Fruit Filled Waffle Cones
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.
This might be my BEST last minute pool party ever!
I went to the grocery store at 1pm, then got the food ready, printed the pool party printables and had everything assembled and ready to by 4pm. This is an easy party that anyone can do!

Wow – you’ve got some INCREDIBLE photos here! Loving the flip-flop cookies… those are awesome! A great pool party activity with the added bonus of a take-home craft for the kiddos is to make some really cool stuff using POOL NOODLES! I love these things!
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!
