Mood board: Pool party
Heather Sewell Day of The Red Cake Event Planning shares her inspiration.
A vinyl tablecloth is an outdoor party must. I picked this one up on a trip to Mexico and use it constantly. It’s a fun pop of color at any party and super easy to clean.
Your first impression is always the strongest, and a fabulous invitation always sets the right mood. Screaming Shih-Tzu Productions does all of my invites—snail mail still rules.
As the sun sets on your backyard soiree, it’s always nice to have colorful lighting to keep the party rollin’.
I never leave the house without a pair of big fun sunglasses, and a basket of them for pool party props is a fun addition. Time Warp always has the coolest.
I love to bust out the turntable and let my guests rummage through our collection for their favorite poolside tunes.
I like to make a signature drink to go with the theme of my party, and serving them in a fun set of vintage Libby glassware with a hibiscus pattern is as good as it gets. Can’t you just taste the frozen mojitos?
