We were having some friends over to swim for their sons' 9th birthday, so I wanted to set up something small but festive. I saw these shark plates and straws at Target and thought it could be just the right theme for a summer pool party! With left over straws, I cut them down to turn some of them into cupcake toppers! Always think outside of the box, that saves you big time on money for supplies. I was also able to grab some shark gummy candies so I added them to the cupcakes and a small dish on the side. Themed food that matches goes a long way in giving your party that extra touch.

I used striped placemats as a table runner for more color interest on the table. These placemats were gifted from Altoona Designs by Table and Dine. I got the shark pool float from our local Albertons, and thought hanging it would make for the perfect piece of decor! Then once the kids started swimming, we took it down. But that's another tip. Use items from around the house as party decor props! Anything that matches the theme! I made a simple balloon garland and added a handmade banner. Tutorial on that linked above. How will you be kicking off your summer?
