Go for the Bold

Popular themes this summer are bright and bold colors. Think neons and striking geometric patterns. Setting up d├ęcor by the pool can be as easy as using these bright neon plants for quite the tropical appeal.

Make a Splash

At night, transform the pool party into a psychedelic show complete with glittering mosaic lights. This image doubles as both lighting and entertainment.

Color transforming lights throughout the floating boxes adds a festive atmosphere while the lighting continues upwards into.

Sync or Swim

What's a pool party without swimming? And how about swimming in sync? These synchronized swimmers bring back an air of old Hollywood glamour that's both entertaining and inspiring to watch.

Pool Punch

Punch is always a pleaser for a pool party. We like the rum based planter's punch with mix of rum, lime and a dash of bitters.

3 ounces Coruba dark Jamaican rum (if you can't find Coruba, substitute another dark, heavy rum)
1 ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, mixed until dissolved)
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
3 dashes Angostura bitters


Combine ingredients in a tall glass and fill with crushed ice. Swizzle with a bar spoon until a frost forms on the outside of the glass. The ice will settle as you do this; add more crushed ice to fill, garnish with a mint sprig.
