  1. Beach Ball Paper Lanterns

Wow your guests with a garland of beach balls hanging over the pool. Cheat a DIY by painting over plain paper lanterns instead, to get the same effect.

  1. Beach Ball Backdrop

Do the same trick and pile on the beach ball lanterns on a wall to create your very photowall to snap away happy memories.

  1. Watercolor Garland

Don't let your snack table go bare; place pretty paper garlands in freehand watercolor design to for a pastel marble effect. Cut and experiment in different shapes.

  1. Personalized Glass Jars

Consider these instagrammable glass jars the highlight of your party, draw on pretty mandalas using a paint marker and your friends’ summer drink is complete.

  1. Tropical Photobooth

Complete your party with a tropical DIY background for all the silly pics and selfies to take place.

  1. Floating Balloons

Consider placing balloons inside your pool with heavy blocks to weigh them down. It definitely adds a whimsical appeal but could also double as props for a fun pool game, a race perhaps?

  1. Ice Tea Popsicles

You don't need a fancy concoction to create a yummy, refreshing frozen treat. Grab your fave tea bags and steep away. You could also cheat and use iced tea powder drinks too.

  1. Snack Buckets

Store your party snacks in toy sand buckets with matching shovels for guests to use, it's a fun twist to regular serving tools.

  1. Mermaid Cupcakes

Transform regular cupcakes into mermaids by adding a wafer cone on top and paper fins you can stick on with a toothpick. Get pastel colored icing for that summer vibe.

  1. Tropical Lounge

Set a comfy lounge area surrounded by pillows, rugs and umbrellas for shade.

  1. Water Balloons

Stage a water balloon fight so anyone who's not in the mood to swim will probably change their mind.

  1. Beach Ball Pinata

Throwback to smashing a piñata as a kid and make your own beach ball version. I think anyone would love free sweets, why not add other treats like lip balm, cute sticky notes, etc.

  1. Palm Leaf Table Runner

Scatter different colored palm leaves on your snack table or any table for that matter but no need to pick from your tree, colored paper will do.
