Pool parties aren’t just for kids anymore. A pool party can be transformed into an elegant event for adults to enjoy as well. Think of your swimming pool as a blank canvas waiting to be filled with creativity and a burst of color. It’s easy to create a gorgeous swimming pool scene that will be the focal point of your party. Planning your next party or event around the pool is sure to impress your guests and set the tone for an amazing evening. There are several ways to magically makeover your swimming pool into a stunning centerpiece.

Let’s Start With the Pool

Before you even consider transforming your pool, you need to make sure that the pool and surrounding area is in perfect working order. Have your pool cleaned professionally to ensure that the water is absolutely sparkling. Remove all of the inflated toys and rafts. Move all of your outdoor furniture away from the pool so that the view is not obstructed in any way. And clear the ground of any debris or clutter that will get in the way. Now you are ready to get creative!

Selecting the Right Decorations

When it comes to planning an elegant and sophisticated party, you need gorgeous decorations that will set the ambiance for a regal affair. Crepe paper streamers and balloons are not fitting decorations for such an occasion. Keep in mind that the decorations must also be waterproof to ensure their longevity during the whole evening. One of the most beautiful and endearing pool decorations is a floating flower pomander. Custom crafted from real or artificial flowers, the pomander floats right in the pool. It is spherical in shape and floats with ease on the surface of the water. You can even include a candle in the center of the pomander to provide a gentle glow as night falls.

Fill your pool with several floating candle pomanders in the color palette of your choosing. For example, for a wedding reception pool party you can select pomanders that match the chosen color palette of the bride. Alternatively, for a bachelorette party, you can select more vibrant colors that set the tone for a fun filled night.

Adding Those Finishing Touches

Once the swimming pool is filled with the floating pomanders, you can add subtle decorations to accentuate the beauty of it. If your guests will be dining outside near the pool, arrange tables a safe distance away from it. Set the tables with your best dishes and tableware. For the centerpiece, you might even select mini flower pomanders with a candlestick nestled in the center. Elegant cloth napkins and placeholders complete the look.

Why not, right. It’s red, it’s beautiful and it is not obnoxiously tall. Just the perfect size and mood for a christmas table.
2 pomegranates and some Boston red beans, you got yourself a great looking edible centerpiece.
I think it cost around $5 and I didn’t have to worry about storing it. Boston beans were gone before last guest left.
Next, I am thinking mangos and wasabi green beans.

It is expensive to decorate your dream wedding venue with real flowers. Especially if ones dream was over the top flowers. I am always mesmerized against a beautiful arrangement. Big, small any size floral center pieces just add so much to any event.
It’s not always feasible and can be a logistics nightmare. Do it yourself brides choose real touch or artificial flowers.
My favorite are the foam roses. They look so real you can’t tell even after you touch them.
Here are some photos of unreal but beyond real looking.

Till next time cheers,

Small or big, every event is special. And every event has a budget. Some budgets have more zero’s but still they are budgeted.
All the parties I have hosted, I tried to put most of my funds towards the food. After all that’s one area you don’t want to go wrong.
But I have always been the one to put so much effort into details. No matter what my budget was, I wanted to add decor and ambiance to my events. I never hired an event planner, which I think is strictly due to my control issues, but I have found many ways to make my parties to look rich, elegant and one of a kind.

On that note, I want to share these party favors with you. Reasonably priced affordable favor boxes. With these simple boxes you can do so much. Put some m&m’s in them you are ready for your fun party. Use gourmet chocolate for richer look. Tea light candles, marbles, scrabble tiles, magnets, erasers, headphones, tea bags, sugar cubes, etc
So many ways to customize your boxes to fit your theme.

Some of these decorated cars, especially classics are amazingly done and I think they add great character to weddings. You don’t have to buy into more is better with decorations, and when you have a classy, elegant car in the background, less is definetly all you need.
