Guest Post: Watch Out! This Shark Party Will Bite Ya!!

Hello Lovelies! We are so excited here at B. Lovely Events to be guest posting today on the Home Seasons Blog. As summer is almost coming to a close we wanted to enjoy the last days of sunshine by showing you one of our favorite trends this summer…a shark party! With the ever growing popularity of shark week, shark themed parties started popping up everywhere and we must say we are quite smitten for this theme for a summer pool party. Whether it is a birthday party for a youngster or for the more mature and wise or just a party to enjoy the water and sunshine, Shark parties always pack a bite of loveliness. We love shark parties because even though they may be one of the most dangerous creatures in the water, at parties, their faces are just too darn cute on everything! How could you be scared of a smiling shark cake pop?! We will show you exactly what we mean with our round up of all of our favorite shark pool party ideas!

{This is the ultimate shark party from Renee’s Soirees! All of the sharked themed food is just too lovely. Just perfect for a pool party!}

{We just love this light blue and red themed shark party on Amy Atlas. Our favorite is the blue jello cups with the sharks coming out of it! Even though this is a birthday party, all of these ideas would be lovely for a pool party too!}


{We are smitten for the vintage vibe on this shark party on the Celebrations at Home. Salt water taffy and shark gummy skewers? Everyone will LOVE that at a pool party!}

Fancy Homemade Popsicle Inspiration for Summer

Remember when we were in middle school, and we would stay in during the heatwave and make homemade popsicles with popsicle molds and juice? We would create our own juice concoctions to make one of a kind, colorful popsicles to enjoy in our driveways. Those were the days!

Recently, we came across a lot of fancy homemade popsicle ideas that were really impressive, and made us want to give homemade popsicles another try. Who knew there were so many DIY popsicle ideas out there! Here are some ideas that really caught our eye (and our taste buds)!

Summer BBQ Ideas – Condiment Bar

Summer is all about the barbecues (or BBQ for short!), and we love looking up new ideas to help us host an even better barbecue. This got us thinking–what would make our usual barbecue even more convenient for our guests? How about a condiment bar!

If your barbecues are anything like ours, we’re constantly looking for the ketchup and mustard. By the time we find them, our burgers are cold! Just imagine our frustration!  So this summer, we’re going to try out a condiment bar for our barbecues. We found some ideas that we think are worth a try, so keep reading to check  them out!

Fun Ways to Serve Fruit on 4th of July

This weekend has definitely been one of the hottest we’ve had all year. With 4th of July coming up this week, we have to prepare ourselves for the scorching heat! Though sodas and juices are always party favorites for thirst quenchers, they are filled with sugars and artificial flavoring.

This is why we love fruit for the summer. Not only does it refresh with natural flavors and sugars, it’s also good for you too! In today’s blog, we’re going to share with everyone a few fun ideas to serve fruit for 4th of July! With displays like this, no one will miss the soda!
