Poolside Celebration by Frey

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Celebration by Frey. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde After All These Years and yours truly. sweetworks-pool-party12

Now that the summer is fully underway, pool parties are a must. I admit, I’m not one to merely sit by the pool or on the beach only soaking up the sun. I like to multi-task my free summer time. Usually, for me this means reading a book or catching up on the latest issue of a favorite magazine. (I just finished Erik Larson’s In The Garden of Beasts. Loved it! Next up – Boys in the Boat.)



A full day spent with family or friends by the pool, means snacks of the delicious variety are an absolute must! Enter Celebration by Frey. Last week, for a day at the pool with friends I pulled together a little candy buffet that we could snack on as we lounged by the pool. No better way to spend a day – outdoors by a pool with good snacks while accompanied by friends!



While I have the tendency to go all out, I decided this summer that perhaps simpler was better. I went with a couple adorable pails that can be purchased in the dollar bins at Target and then used some of the containers the candy came in for other serving options. In the end the pails traveled all around the pool. And the small bags of mini Pearls were the perfect individual snack for people to indulge in while they read, talked, or just lounged.



The colors available are truly perfect for the summer months, whether you are decorating a cake (like the Rainbow Fish cake or the Hedgehog cake I made last year) or creating a candy bar, it’s easy to find Celebration by Frey products that will fit your color scheme perfectly. In case you were wondering Celebration items are available at a number of major retailers including Walmart, Target, Party City and Michaels.

    My daughter’s 11th bday is 7/29 so I called her in here to check these out. She said she would love to have these to share with her friends at her party. Her favorite is the Conversations 1/2 inch gumballs because she thinks they are cool like emoji’s. She also likes the Googlie Eyes gumballs along with the shimmer powder blue ones and the dark purple ones.

    I would most like to have the Shimmer Lavender Sixlets Shaker Jar! We are huge fans of the color and use it often in themes for our parties, so I would be able to use these in tall and short vases as accents on my table and then also on my desserts as decorations! I love all colors they offer, but the lavender is definitely my favorite!
