Write pool party information on Frisbees and send to guests - ask them to bring the Frisbees to the party!
Send sunglasses with a colorful tag that has the information for the party.

Pool Party Decorations
In the trees outside the party venue hang small blow up swim rings, swim goggles, nose plugs, etc.
Use colorful beach towels for table cloths.
Fill buckets with sand and tie helium balloons to the handles.
Hang fishnets around the edge of the party and fill with shells, crabs and seahorses.
Hang blow-up beach balls around the party area.
Place swim rings around the mailbox or in front of the party venue to tell party guests "This is the place!"
Decorate with palm trees (easy to make by cutting out large green leaves then hang about 20 straight gold or brown ribbon strands from the middle to make a hanging trunk. These can be as tall as you want - just make the ribbons long. )
