Remember several weeks ago I shared a free set of Swim Party Printables? I told you they were designed especially for my friend, who was throwing a Retro Swim Party for her 11 year old. Well, the party happened and the details are incredibly cute! I thought you'd like to see them too!
No pool party is complete without an Ice Cream Bar and delicious snacks. How cute are those convertible fruit cups? Retro, indeed!
We sent the Splish Splash sign to Costco and had them make a 16x20 poster board. Easy and inexpensive. You can get the printable here. The Dive In banner was printed on white cardstock and hung with twine. Also available here.
The cupcake toppers are part of the free printable set. They were printed on cardstock, cut into squares and attached to paper straws. They're mixed in with edible fondant toppers.
My friend made the cupcake stand and I SO wish she'd taken pictures of her process! I shopped with her for the parts, so I know she used 2 cardboard cake rounds (top two tiers) and a discounted metal tray from Hobby Lobby (bottom tier). She then painted the cardboard with spray paint and added ric-rac. The dividers are canned goods covered in paper. Clever, eh??
Of course, what pre-teen party would be complete without bags of swag?! My friend set up a Fill Your Bag with Swag station. Girl heaven (can I fill a bag??)!
Didn't my friend do an awesome job with her Retro Swim Party?? I'm so glad she let me design party printables for the occasion!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend.
