Pool Party Details
Turn plain party hats and pinwheels into flamingos by cutting a neck and wing out of pink cardstock and gluing to the sides. Turn meringues into poolside umbrellas by using food coloring as paint, and provide heart sunglasses as favors that double as photo booth props.
Ready, Set, Splash Photo Booth
For a fun photo booth at your pool party, blow up a kiddie pool and fill it with balloons! Have everyone hop in, toss some balloons around and pose for the camera. The flamingo balloons make a great backdrop for this.
Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
