Fun Pool-themed Favor Ideas for Grown Ups

Having a poolside wedding this summer? Or maybe a casual by-the-beach party with a small guest list? Make a fun splash with party favors that you’d expect at a pool party!

Keep it playful (and affordable) by choosing bright, colorful pooltime accessories that you can buy in bulk. Then, you could use these as fillers for "beach bucket" favors for your guests to take home and continue the fun-in-the-sun vibe for the rest of the summer season, too!

Speaking of essentials, don’t forget summertime snacks! Good Health Veggie Straws with Sea Salt (5) and Sparkling Ice Peach Nectar Sparkling Water (6), both available in bulk from Dollar Tree. And for sweets, Swedish Fish Red Fish Soft & Chewy Candy (7) in packs of 12 on Amazon.

And how to package all these in pooltime style? In bright and colorful Beach Pail and Sand Shovel Sets (8) that come in 6’s, finished with Personalized Wedding Favor Tags (9)—both found on Amazon). How cool is that?
