end summer with a splash, II

I shared some pictures of my new Splash Bash and Deep Blue Sea collections almost a week ago, and this morning I’m showing tons more. With summer closing in on us, why not go out with a splash?!

It’s as simple as packing a picnic lunch.

Throwing a few goodies in the basket, like these starfish, crab, angelfish and beach ball cookies (available in the shoppe with the collections, but baked and shipped from our partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage), innertube donuts, raft sugar wafers and embellished cupcakes.

Inviting a few good friends.

Heading out.

And having a blast!

You can find the Splash Bash and Deep Blue Sea collections, including this fun crab monogram on a t-shirt from our partners at Sew Jewell, in the shoppe. {You can convo Sew Jewell directly on Etsy if you’re interested in the towels.}

good ole water balloon fight

Who doesn’t love a water balloon fight?! And it makes a great party game for a pool party or summer gathering!

When styling our new Splash Bash collection and additions to our Deep Blue Sea collection, my sons got into a huge water balloon fight in our front yard with the neighbor kids (okay… and my husband) and so we said why not have one at the party shoot too. It gets the kids giggling and makes for a great time.

These are a few of my favorite shots that Angie of Angie Arthur Photography captured!

Gathering ammo.

Catching some air!

The war face. I LOVE this one. These two are brother and sister. Can you tell?!

More intensity. These kids meant business!

The bounce. Some of the water balloons just refused to burst. You can see the one in midair that just bounced right off her side. Trust me, it wasn’t because he wasn’t throwing hard!

And when all the balloons were gone, there was “the drench.” I just love how Angie captured the water in this one!

In the end, cookies, from our partners at Sweet Tooth Cottage, and cupcakes embellished with our crab and SPLASH cupcake picks, brought them all back together. It’s funny how sugar can do that! {wink}

You can find all of my pool party supplies in the party store!

And as always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
