Pink and green buckets from Hobby Lobby were perfect for our recent pool party, filled with finger foods. Sand pails from Dollar Tree were great for the boys.
Plastic fish toothpick skewers with ham and Colby-jack cheese cubes
Fruit skewers with fresh strawberries, pineapple and grapes
Goldfish snack crackers
I packed all the children's buckets identically but piled extra food on platters so the children could graze on their favorites throughout the afternoon.
Bottled waters with scrapbook-paper labels were a refreshing treat on a hot day. A teacup stuffed with individual-serving-size packets of Crystal Light and Kool-Aid gave the children a variety of flavor options.
Each child's place was cute and colorful with a bucket of food, personalized water bottle, flip-flops and name card. See yesterday's post for directions on decorating flip-flops.
