Beat the Heat with These Summer Pool Parties

By  June 17, 2013

Now that summer is here, how about throwing a pool party? What I love most about pool parties are the bright colors, the fun and clever treats (“pool noodle” licorice ropes, anyone?), the inexpensive decor ideas (beach balls as dessert table decorations), and the casual, relaxed feel. I love a party where I can not only wear flip flops, but the whole party theme is flip flops!
