Pool Birthday Party Decorations

With the carefree, festive vibe of a pool party, it only takes a few party decorations to say let's party.  So, it's important that the ones that you do choose make a big splash.  From banners to balloons, the same basic party decorations are still right at home at an outdoor party (with an unexpected twist here and there).

Birthday banners can be seen from anywhere,
even the swimming pool.

When it's time to switch from swimming to celebrating,
make sure the table decor says Happy Birthday. 

When decorating for a pool birthday party, outline the party space with balloons.  Float single balloons, spell out a message, or use bouquets...it's up to you.

Floating balloons in the pool is a fun idea
and did you know that some balloons have lights?

Along comes a balloon party idea that is so unique,
you simply cannot pass it up.  This is it...
