As featured yesterday, Caroline’s party put sand buckets to good use for food serving dishes and party favors paired with our custom stickers:
But what to put inside? We got to thinking and we just love activities or even decor that turn right around and become your party favor. And since the bucket acts as a nice carrying case we thought the pool party would be a great use of this.
Fabric Paint and ocean themed foam stamps collide for these creative and colorful personalized towels. While an array of fun jars can be filled with colored Crayola play sand (available in most walmart stores but check the website to make sure you can find it locally).
In addition, this super simple tutorial for ribbon flip flops is quick and easy to follow and will ensure everyone attending the party have properly adorned toesies. Or for an older crowd these fabric embellished flip flops are both easy and cute (im kinda wanting a pair myself!) And why not let your decor join in the favor fun? This flip flop banner we found on flikr is too sweet, but how killer would it be if those were actual flip flops strung on the banner?! Old Navy has flip fops for $2.50 each when you buy more than 2 pairs at a time.
Our favorite bonus to this whole activities doubling as your party favors is you’re hitting two birds with one stone and with so many other things to worry about (food, drink, gifts, etc.) anything that saves us a bit of a time is a big win. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where we’ll discuss food and drink ideas for the perfect Flip Flop Pool Party and if you haven’t yet registered for our giveaway just leave a comment and you’re in!
