I’m soooooo excited to start sharing some of the fun things we put together in Palm Springs with you guys!!!!! As you know if you follow me on Instagram, we took a big trip to Palm Springs last month. We brought together an amazing team and created a few balloon-filled parties to help inspire some of the parties you’re throwing at home! Each one has several DIYs and recipes that we’ll be sharing in separate posts so you can re-create the whole shebang or just pull your fave element!
First up, an EPIC balloon pool party!!! I really love this one because it is super budget-friendly. A couple packs of latex balloons make a HUGE impact, and then you can add in a few of your fave novelty balloons and pool floats and honestly… that’s all you need! You could even have all your friends bring their own floats if you don’t have a collection of your own. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my #1 party tip is to have ONE big “statement” piece or surprise and the rest you can pull together with items you already have. A balloon filled pool is the most fool proof statement you can make! BAM!
Of course, if you want to take it to the next level, we’ll be sharing DIYs and recipes to help ya there too! 😉 But for now, take a look and tell me your fave part!!!! I hope you love it ALL!!
