Some themes lend themselves better to just girls, like a flip flop party, others for boys, like a pirate pool party and still others for everybody - like an Hawaiian pool party.

What makes a pool party even more fun is to have floating pool toys that go along with your party theme - like a ride-on shark for a shark pool party or an inflatable octopus for an under the sea party.

Pool party themes can transport your guests to an under sea adventure or to a remote Hawaiian island.
