Picture Ready Pool Party. Ft. Gordamns

Summer is finally here and that means pool parties are upon us! As I have mentioned so many times before, Gordmans has been a staple for my family for home decor, clothing, accessories and more. We truly love this store. Thats why I have teamed up with Gordmans to create the perfect picture-ready summer pool party. From outside home decor, summer fashion, I will show you my guide to the perfect pool party. Also, surprise appearance by my Dachshund Ember and Parrot Leo. <3

When I think summer pool party, I think lots of color, fruits, and floral prints. The first thing that I wanted to do was think about a theme. We had just purchased a Tiki bar, so I figured what better way than to decorate that! Gordmans always has really affordable home ware items. I found these awesome margaritaville cups, and the Pinapple cup for less than $2 each. I was so excited to find these, especially for the price! To make things even better, they had the cutest pineapple speaker. Its also water proof, so you can throw it in the pool too. Everybody knows theres no party without music!

Next, I wanted to add lights to our tiki bar. I like the ambiance, especially for a nighttime swim! I found these awesome umbrella lights that literally went perfect with our theme, and they were under $10!

Another trick to add to your set up, is use fruits for props as well, they add texture, color, and you can enjoy them as well! I also planted really bright flowers around our pool, to really give it that Tropical feel!

Now lets get on to fashion. When I was browsing through the swim selection, I decided to try something I haven’t before. A swimsuit dress. I was surprised how much I liked it! its so cute, the fit was perfect, and you dont have to change! ha! literally just Jump in the pool and host your party all while looking nice! I was also so surprised with the swim selection at Gordmans. They were all name brand but a fraction of the price. My last addition to my summer look, was the perfect pool/beach bag.

Is this bag not the cutest! I live for all the colors and the cute pom pom tassel. Its a Jessica Simpson bag that was less than $25.

So when you plan your pool party, keep in mind the colors, themes, and textures. Having bright colors will really help make your photos Pop! Also, don’t make it too complex, or expensive. By shopping at Gordmans, I got so many amazing quality items for less in one spot! Whether your planning a pool party or need your summer staples, Gordmans is the spot for you!
