If you’re looking for that perfect summer theme for your next boy birthday party, make a splash with this awesome Pool Party Birthday Fun theme! Anne, of UR invited, styled a light-hearted and colorful retro pool party to celebrate her son’s 7th birthday. Since he was a summer baby, the theme was a perfect fit!
We especially love the cheerful color palette and retro vibe. The invitation Anne designed really set the tone for a great event and I bet guests couldn’t wait to dive into the delicious dessert table!
An impressive dessert table often starts with an impressive backdrop and wow! Anne nailed it! The large backdrop incorporated all of the great colors from the invitation in a variety of eye-catching fonts. A simple white tablecloth allowed the incredible desserts to be the stars of the show. And don’t you love the oversized yellow letters that spell out “pool” at the foot of the table? What a great eye-catching tablescape!
So many fun summer and pool themed desserts filled the tabletop. The pool shaped cake by Little Miss Marzipan is absolutely fantastic! I love the expressions on the swimmers’ faces; even looking at them invites you to get into the water!
Containers of colorful treats lined the table. Sifted created a variety of awesome desserts including ice cream sundae cupcakes, ice cream cone cupcakes and ice cream bar cake pops. I’m pretty sure everyone at the party screamed for the ice cream themed desserts at this party!
Amazing sunglasses, flip flops and icy pole cookies, made by Angela del Busso, were neatly displayed for quick consumption, as well. Printable party food labels helped guests choose which sweets to eat first.
