Floating pool decorations are always a part of my pool parties. When your guests walk down the steps or around the corner surprise them with a large inflatable floating lizard, octopus or shark in the swimming pool.
I love this set of 6 lotus flowers for decorating the pool for parties. The small loop on the bottom provides a way to anchor them using a fishing line tied around a heavy washer. If you don't do that they will all bunch up.
Depending on the size of your pool you will need several sets - one set of 6 is just not enough. They look like real flowers floating on the top of your pool and make for great floating pool decorations.Floating Flowers Large White Set of 6 for Pool Parties
Two of our neighbors have this beautiful swan swimming in their pool all summer. It's really large at 75" long.
Made of durable vinyl it will hold up to 140 lbs. Easy to blow up and only takes 5-10 minutes to blow up with a cheap 120v air compressor.
Two adults or 3-4 small kids can fit on this float. It will last for several seasons. Not only is this a great way to decorate your pool, it will add lots of fun for adults and kids.
It costs just under $40 and has free shipping from Amazon if you are a Prime Member:
We made sure the birthday girl got the lion beach ball and then let the other kids pick out their favorite jungle animal.
The jungle animal beach balls were used for pool party games and as take home favors.
Sometimes a person just gets lucky. The Ariel beach ball was at our local dollar store so I was able to get one for each little "mermaid."
These beach balls are a great way to get "water shy" kids into the pool. Have the balls at a comfortable distance and depth that's geared to the height of the kids and to their swimming ability.
See how putting a theme to your pool party, gives the pool party decorations lots more direction and creativity?
We had these pirate beach balls in the pool when the "little mates" arrived. You can write a guest's name on each of the balls. After all of the guests have arrived, instruct the kids to get into the pool to find their own pirate beach ball.
From polka dots, to solid colors, to fun and colorful designs, a bunch of large floating beach balls is a great way to decorate for any pool party.
We have several of these tropical fish swim rings and have used them to decorate the pool gate, as fun swim rings for our Under the Sea pool party, and as floating pool party decorations.
Kids who come to the pool love to swim with them. They've been very sturdy and have lasted us several pool seasons.

I couldn't resist getting (of course not one - but two) of these flip flop floating air mattresses.
Turn off your pool pump and you might have a better chance of them staying somewhat together.
These swimming pool floats are a great way to decorate for a flip flop themed party.
We used them all summer just as fun floats.
Dangerous crocodiles are lurking on the surface for this jungle pool party.
These are actually foam masks/visors from the dollar store.
Buy several of them and have them floating in the pool as part of your pool party decorations.
Use them later as part of your pool party games. There is a strap on the visor. Have an adult wear it for a "Monkey Chase" game.
Other ideas for floating pool decorations are a shark for a shark party, an octopus for an under the sea party, and an inflatable crocodile for a jungle pool party.
