Summer’s here and that means pool parties galore! What better way to harken this fun-filled season than a poolside birthday bash? That is exactly what our creative team had in mind when they put together this adorable set-up for a 13-year-old girl’s birthday. Our Seashell Bloom Birthday Invitation featuring artwork by Dogwood Hill artist Willa Heart was the perfect starting point in planning this tropical-themed celebration.

Nothing quite fits the bill for a poolside gathering like a bit of rattan, flamingos and some pink fruity drinks. Oh to be turning 13 again! Huckleberry Collective provided plenty of cheer with the colorful bud vases sprinkled throughout the party.

Be sure not to miss the coordinating gift tags that our team included on our the party favors! Our “Shell-ebrating” gift tags can be shopped here.

What party is complete without beautifully-wrapped presents for the new teenager? Our most recent collection features a plethora of vivid summery prints by our talented artists. We are particularly fond of the Pool Party print which is 100 percent theme-appropriate for this shoot!

Our stylist infused pink lemonade with strawberries for this special occasion and topped them off with miniature umbrella stir sticks, exotic florals, and happy little flamingo floaties for that extra touch of island flair.

And because the Dogwood Hill team are known to be sticklers for prompt thank you notes … our stylists included the coordinating Seashell Bloom Notecard for all of the follow-up notes that are sure to follow such a fun poolside celebration.
