party inspiration: under the sea pool party

6.28.2009
Oh my, did we ever have a hot weekend here in the Bay Area! I was really in the mood to make a cool refreshing board, and then I remembered the adorable mermaid images I'd saved from Pottery Barn Kids... the perfect inspiration for an under the sea theme party! I love the idea of using a hot pink and aqua color palette and letting guests create their own 'sand' bucket favors filled with blue candy or Swedish fish. Of course, some kind of water fun is a must for this theme, but if you don't have a pool, a sprinkler or slip n' slide will certainly keep your little mermaids entertained. And don't forget bubble wands to add a little extra magic...
