Summer Week! Elle Entertains: Kickoff to Summer Pool Party




My party for this month is a Kickoff to Summer party! Luckily, my apartment complex has a nice pool, so that served as the setting. A beach, le sigh, would’ve been even better! Here’s how I did it:


D├ęcor--

Food--
I wanted things that were nice and cool and didn't require a lot of preparation.

Drinks--
Ok, this is the section everyone asks about when I announce a party: What are we drinking? In addition to plenty of non-alc refreshments, I wanted to change things up in the cocktail department. 

  • I served alcohol Snow Cones (or you could make Shaved Ice). Everyone went crazy over these, and they were easy to make! For the Snow Cones, I used my blender to crunch up some ice, placed the ice in Snow Cone cups (via Target), and poured a shot or two of Pina Colada or Blueberry Martini (blue & white theme!) over the ice.
  • I also made Cosmo Pops--both were a big hit!
Are you having a summer pool party? Or any party this summer? Do tell in the comments. 
Have a great weekend! I'll be back Monday with even more summer goodies. Love, Elle

  1. Entertaining is fun, especially if its stress free. I have a question, do you have a good exfoliation tip? Maybe you (if you have time) could guest post someday.
