I WAS SO EXCITED when my brother asked me to pull together some fun birthday decorations for my niece's 8th birthday at the beach house. I have been fortunate enough to spend her last two birthdays with her and she holds a special place in my heart as I carried my son at the same time my sister carried her:) 

Now, mushiness aside, here comes the "Guilt Free" style part. Everything at the purple and orange afternoon pool party was under $20.

 Balloons were $1 at the dollar store. Beet and Poppy tissue paper for the paper pom poms are from Paper Source $2.95 each. Purple and Orange Gum Balls were from Party City $2.99 each. Birthday Banner upcycled from Paper Source shopping bags, free! Lunch bags for treats from the dollar store $1.

 Printable labels for treat bags from Paper Source $5.95 and straws from the dollar store $1.
Paper flags for straws were made from the remains of the poppy labels!
