Orange + Brown Retro Pool Party

Annabelle turned 13! She chose orange and brown for her pool party colors. We added a bit of retro flair with a nod to the 70s. We lucked out with a perfectly sunny, warm day. Lunch was served poolside and the girls played music and lounged in the pool all day.
THIRTEEN is going to be fun!
Poolside records and refreshing drinks in vintage glassware.
Fondue and finger foods on toothpicks for lunch.
Resort wear
Straw bags with cover ups, oversized sunglasses, gold flip flops, mood rings and lip jellies in orange and honey for swag bags.
We also had personalized towels for each girl.
Living the dream, poolside fondue with besties.
Vintage trays and melon balls lends to our 70s vibe.

Andrew’s Pool Party 10th Birthday

Dive in! Andrew celebrated his 10th birthday this summer with a pool party. He chose red and blue and we used lots of cabana stripes with a few shark accents.

Maggie Russo Photo was there to capture the details and fun!

The favors were simple red squirt guns and the biggest hit of the party was the Snow Cone Table. It was a really simply, un-fussy table…..an inexpensive snow cone machine, a bucket of ice, a couple of syrup flavors, cups and straws. The kids got the hang of it really quick!
