🎵 Summertiiiiime, and the livin’ is easy. Kids are jumpin’, and the grill’s on hiiigh 🎵 It’s been one hot, luscious summer. With gorgeous 80-degree days and endless sun rays, I was itchin’ to throw one helluva fun, colorful and spirited pool party worth writing home about. Bed, Bath & Beyond, my longtime favorite one-stop-shop, was there for every cheerful, outdoor entertaining essential a girl could ever need to put together one fabulous, summer fête.
Bold patterns, vibrant colors, cocktail coupes, cozy pillows, nifty towels, floats galore and more, Bed, Bath & Beyond, is brimming with tons of unexpectedly unique, seasonal products—both online and in-store—to get your list of pool party ideas going. The price sure is right, too. Plus, the online shopping experience gives you the ability to design “Idea Boards” where you can organize a shortlist of fave finds all in one place. La-la-LOVE.
Don’t know about you, but I’ve got that stack of Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons YAY-high (imagine me being superiorly awkward, showing you just how high). Plus, a little (probably known) secret: they never actually expire, because Bed, Bath and Beyond lives to make humans, and their wallets, happy. #numberonefan #btwiloveyou
The backbone to this punchy pool party was COLORRR! I’m not even sure which brilliant accessory I love the most; I’m obsessed with them all. If I had to choose, the bright, sunshine yellow director’s chairs are where it’s at. Not only are they easy on the eyes, but damn, they are comfy.
Cozying up in one, with a velvety-soft, round watermelon beach towel, under sun laden palm fronds is what summer dreams are made of. Not to mention, the quality of these towels is supreme. 💯 They double as precious, half-watermelon buntings when laid out to dry on a railing. Not to mention, a stellar backdrop for a few hottie-boom-botties, knowwhatimsayin!!

Let’s break it down now. What does every party need to succeed? Fabulous décor, comfortable seating, good lighting, great music, delicious food, a fancy drink, and your baes (obvy). So, it’s only expected that a top-notch pool party comes with a collection of fantastically colorful and cartoonish floats, amirite? That Toucan, you see; his name is Fernando.
Add to that, us adults need a pretty little buoyant pillow to rest our pretty little drinks on whilst treading water. Well, give me the glitter, give me the glam, these sparkly drink floaties are adorable and withstood the most ferocious caaaannonbaaaalls. ☄️
Under a mod market umbrella, the dazzling ceramic charcoal grill’s searing game was strong, and is, quite possibly, one of the cutest, functional finds in this party scene. This kamado-style grill is petite, holds her heat, and guess what? She’s damn good at low-temp smoking, too. Balancing the smorgasbord of colorful accoutrements, polypropylene paper plates were a clean canvas to chow down on those brightly-colored, perfectly charred kabobs.
Speaking of good eats: Bed, Bath & Beyond has an awesome selection of entertaining serveware. I mean, how stupid-cute is that modern chip and dip stand made of acacia wood? Uhh, hi pretty.
A fresh, tangy watermelon and cucumber salad goes right quick when it’s served a succulent bamboo serving bowl. I’ll have my fifth helping, please and thank you. It’s always an added bonus when the boozy cocktail of the day—a Mango Mojito Spritzer, in fact—is offered up in an quippy, shatterless, stemless wine glass.
My personal favorite, “I’m outdoorsy. I drink wine on my patio.” 🤣
With energetic, lounge-y chatter and the kiddos making all the water splatter, Bed, Bath & Beyond not only helped make this pool party easy and fun to shop for, but nothing short of a wild success—and it didn’t break the bank.
If you’re seeking a one-stop-shop for affordable outdoor entertaining, BB&B is your B-O-Y, BOI. Beyond the party scene, Bed, Bath & Beyond is killin’ it in the home décor and furniture department. Just sayin’. Don’t just believe me, have a look for yourself 👉🏻 BedBathandBeyond.com.
