4th of July Pool Party

4th of July Disco Pool Party

**Thank you to Oriental Trading for sending me product in exchange for styling a party

Summer is here!   We've been roasting here in Portland. 🌞 Temps have been soaring to 90 degrees, which is hot for us.  All this hot weather calls for a pool party! What do you do when you don't have a pool?  You order one from Oriental Trading.  Than you invite a bunch of friends over to celebrate the 4th of July with you.

Now if you've been following me long enough and I totally hope you have than you know I love glittery things.   So for this 4th of July party I added a little disco touch.  I scored that glittery 4 and disco table linen at Joann on a smoking sale. Always check the sale area when you're in a craft store. You never know what you may find.

Being a HOT day I wanted to make sure my friends stayed hydrated so I filled a mini cooler with a variety of drinks.  I picked up some Bai ,  Coca-Cola , La Croix,  and a friend brought some festive Smirnoff Ice.

And here's a couple of my friends now enjoying a gorgeous afternoon at the 4th of July Disco Pool Party.  I love that my friends dress for the theme of my parties. It makes it so much more festive and of course it makes for great pictures. 😄

Come on in, the water feels great. 

You're totally going to want to come back later this week to see all the yummy treats I served.

Wedding Sweet Heart Table

Love is Sweet Sweetheart Table 

** I was given product by Oriental Trading in exchange for styling this party. 

Now that you've got a drink from the bubbly bar let's take a seat and enjoy a delicious meal at this colourful wedding reception.  

So I had all these plans of renting two tables, 12 white wood chairs and all the flatware, plates and cups I would need to make the tables all pretty. I was going to set them up in the "park", aka my backyard.  But then I remembered it's Rose Festival weekend and always rains Rose Festival weekend. Scratch that idea. I still wanted to set up a table though.  So I set up a sweetheart table under our gazebo.

My first sweetheart table. Yep my first. We didn't have one at our wedding.  We had a casual reception, just the way we liked it.  Buffet style.  We sat next to each other of course but we had no designated seats for any one.  How'd I do with my first sweetheart table?

I have to admit I'm loving these light pink peonies in the yellow flower box.  You may be thinking the red doesn't really go with the rest of the table but if you pop over here, you'll see that it's not out of place.

I'm crushing over the champagne table linen from Party Crush Studio.    It's like a wedding dress for your table.  Those hearts in the centerpiece are marshmallows.  Fun huh? The theme for this wedding was candy after all.

Wedding- Candy Inspired

Candy themed Wedding Inspiration 

** I was given product by Oriental Trading for this styled shoot. Full disclosure, I've been shopping at Oriental Trading long before they gave me product to use in this shoot. 

When Oriental Trading told me they had a wedding line I immediately had to check it out. I already love using their products for my parties so I had to see what the wedding line contained.  ooooh, I found SO much I could use for my parties.  So when they asked me to style something using their wedding line I was all over it. Let's take a look. 

This was my first mini wedding styled shoot and I had so. much. fun! After all, a wedding is just a big party.  For this shoot I chose Martha Stewarts fall 2017 unique color combination.  I love the POPs of yellow and pinky/mauve, the fresh green and of course my fav, red.  And the black anchors it all. 

Martha Stewart fall 2017 wedding colours

I'm not a fancy pants wedding kind of person.  While I love the look of those types of weddings they just aren't me.  I'm more of a wedding as just a big fun party kind of person.  The colors I was using as inspiration made me think of candy so I chose that as my theme.  I sent the colors to Kiss Me Kate Studio,  told her I was going with a candy theme and asked her to create an invitation and RSVP card for me. She nailed it. The font and candy say fun but she also captured the wedding feel.

For this styled shoot I wasn't re-creating the whole wedding, just parts of it. I skipped the ceremony part and went straight for the reception.  The morning started out drizzly and I thought we were going to have to shoot indoors. But when Photography Hill arrived the sun came out and we moved everything outside. Woo Hoo!!!

I wanted to create a fun little station for guests to grab drinks and a treat after dancing the day away.  A bubbly bar  with drinks for adults, Coppola Blanc de Blanc in fun little handy cans and Fentiman's for the kids and those that don't care for alcohol.   The octopus is not only fun but it draws people over to the bubbly bar and is one of the inspiration colors, yellow.

The Coppola comes with little straws but the Fentiman's does not. So I tied paper straws to the Fentiman's.  The straws pull in the red from the inspiration colors while the ribbon pulls in the pink and the table pulls in the black. The bottles and cans also pull in the inspiration colors.

Summer weddings call for refreshments. See more inspiration at FizzyParty.com

Besides working up a thirst dancing the day/night away you might also want a little treat.  Popsicles are great for summer or warm fall weddings.  Lickety Pops is a local company here in Portland.  Their refreshing flavors will surely be a treat for your guests.  This is their raspberry thyme flavor and yes, it is delish.

Summer weddings call for late night treats. Lickety Pops popsicles for the win. For more wedding inspiration visit FizzyParty.com

Leave me a comment! Myself and the vendors I used would LOVE to hear your thoughts.
