I knew I wanted these bright colors for a summer time party poolside. To start with my backdrop, I bought 99 cent streamers in hot pink, orange, teal, mint and peach.

Another streamer idea I used was to put streamer pieces into a clear salad bowl and turn it upside down onto a wooden charger, creating a cake stand. You can see the streamers thru the clear bowl! You’ll also see below, on the 2nd shelf of my table, that I used leftover streamer rolls and stacked them on a cake stand, creating a piece of decor. Make it whimsey by letting some of the streamer roll down the cake stand.
For my table, I ran all of the colors of streamers down the center of the table to create a table runner. Then on one end, I let the streamers over flow into a pool at the ground! All of my flowers only cost $29 total and were from Trader Joe’s! The english garden roses and dahlia’s were the show stoppers!

My Signature Cocktail for the evening was ABK6 Rosé Vodka with Belvoir Elderflower and Rose Lemonade! OMG. It’s sooo refreshing! Definitely a summer must try! I set my bar cart poolside with a coordinating balloon garland and more florals! I wish you all could have been here! It was the dreamiest birthday party I could have had, even though it was social distancing and only celebrated with 1 family. Someday we will party with all of our friends again! I hope you enjoyed my streamer party ideas and cocktail! How will you be celebrating this summer?
