Sun protections tables
Although everyone loves sunlight, not everyone can enjoy it all the time. That’s why you should take care of the lounge area, where there will be enough sun loungers with wide umbrellas that provide good shade. Leave some pillows, towels, and sunblock on your sun loungers.
Summer pool party dessert tables
Each small group of guests should have their own small table by the water — it’s a good idea to get some low tables (you can even make your DIY tables using wooden pallets). Place colorful tablecloths on the tables, arrange flowers in vases, and don’t forget about beautiful containers with fruits so that children can ease their hunger.
Inflatable items are an indispensable element to consider when you try to create bright pool party decorations for kids. Luckily, there are plenty of inflatable items today that can turn your big celebration into a real festival of fun! Swimming mattresses, inflatable boats, a variety of floats for little ones, beach balls, and even inflatable strollers!
All these things will perfectly complement your decor, and with their help, you can organize a variety of fun activities on the water.
Flamingo pool float for kids

Summer-themed balloons in the Pool
Browsing the Web, try to find balloons that best match the style of your festivity. These can be Mylar balloon lifebuoys, inflatable swans and dinosaurs, fruits, and disco balls.
Here’s another nice idea: order some big bubbles, fill them with helium, tie them to pieces of fishing line of different lengths, tie each piece to weight, and scatter these weights in the water in different places.
Paper lantern garlands
Lanterns are made from a lightweight, pliable, and inexpensive material. They can be small and huge, plain and multi-colored, printed, minimalistic or bright.
