Happy hump day everyone!! I know I’ve bitched about how summer is not here fast enough…well shut my mouth because temps are scorching up in here in the 90s and some area triple digits. This must mean that Summer has officially arrived and with July 4th coming up, pool parties will be inevitable. Today, I’m sharing a few inspirations I have found on internet and Pinterest that is super easy and fun and visually pleasing just in time to throw a July 4th Pool Party!
Patriotic themed fruit arrangements are a huge hit, we have an abundance of strawberries, blueberries and watermelons in the summer and it is perfect to make some healthy red white and blue fruit plates and desserts. They look soooo easy that even Miss K can help make them. Seriously how cute are these star shaped sparkler skewers with watermelons and blueberries? Huge hit with kids at any party and they are healthier than candies and cupcakes and cookies!
For the adults, what is a better way to elevate a glass of plain aqua than some bedazzled fruit ice cubes? They add a hint of sweetness to water as it melts and looks so posh. If you are up for it, do the gradient ones by adding different layers of water to the ice cubes. Personally I think the fruit infused cubes are great in water or in a glass of mixed drink. Bonus: the kids love them sucking on them too and attempt to get the fruit out. 🙂
To dress for the pool party, you don’t necessarily have to be totally decked out in stripes and stars. A solid one piece of red, white or blue will do the trick and the best part is you can wear it all summer long even after July 4th have passed. I have hand picked out some super cute one piece and two piece sets at a very affordable price point that won’t break the bank and will look so chic by the pool side sipping on aqua fresca.
