Just Maui’d Pineapple Pool Party

We technically still have 3 more weeks to go, but the unofficial end to summer is upon us. School is back in session, the days are getting shorter, and Labor Day is here. In many places, the weather is probably getting cooler by the day too. Meanwhile, here in San Diego, we are living out yet another 100+ degree heat wave. Needless to say, our pool season is still in full effect. That’s how I can comfortably justify sharing the details of this “Just Maui’d” pool party with you this late in the summer.

At the time of this post, I’ll be on Maui, Hawaii celebrating the marriage of a truly special couple. I’ve been privileged to be a small part of the team that’s helping them create the wedding of their dreams (but more on that in a different post). A destination wedding like this one means wanting to spend as much time as possible creating memories with your guests that have traveled far and wide to be with you. And when you get married on Maui, the logical thing to do the day after the ceremony and reception is to host a fabulous pool party.

I don’t plan to do a lot of work on this trip, but I do want to add a few special touches to their day-after pool party. Besides, it’s hard to call party styling work when it brings me so much joy. I put together some of the details at home first so I could share them with you. Hopefully, I’ll get some good photos of the real deal that I can add to this post later.

We chose to include golden pineapples in the pool party decor because of their symbolism of warmth, welcome, friendship, and hospitality. Big thanks to my friends at Oriental Trading Company for sending some fun goodies to put this all together. I wouldn’t normally have thought of OTC for wedding decor, but I was surprised that they have so many great products that work well for weddings and related events. Here are some details of this “Just Maui’d” pool party that you won’t want to miss:

  • Gold pineapple temporary tattoos. These work amazingly well and were so shiny and cute when applied.
  • Personalized water bottle labels commemorating the occasion and themed cups for celebratory cocktails
  • Balloon garland with tropical greenery. The leaves I used were super light-weight, so they worked great when just tucked into the balloons with a little tape.
  • Trucker style hats to keep the bridal party cool and coordinated.
  • Black and white beach towels for the new Mr. and Mrs.

Aloha, friends!


  1. I love the color scheme! Yellow, white, and black is very elegant for a post-wedding party. That balloon garland is swoon worthy!
