It’s no secret #ihavethingthingwithpoolfloats, so when Bed Bath & Beyond reached out to collab on a pool party post, I was like sign me up! I was happily surprised to discover they have so many cute floats in store and online, including these sparkling gold glitter pool floats, drink holders and beach balls! See all of the other gems I found — including palm leaf poufs  — that help make outdoor entertaining more fun and fabulous this summer!

I really wanted to channel The Beverly Hills Hotel, so was over the moon when I spotted these banana leaf beach towels and these green-and-white striped beach towels! Total Beverly Hills Hotel vibes, right? Also, how cute is this outdoor bar cart? Perfect for hostessing in style, plus it’s folding so can easily be tucked away when not in use.

I decked out the bar cart with shatterproof wine glasses, including these Kate Spade acrylic polka dot glasses and this polka dot pitcher. I couldn’t resist this pineapple tumbler either.

As for pool floats, these gold glitter pool floats are SO fun in the sun, as they sparkle when the light hits them just so. A few gold glitter beach balls, plus an ice cream cone pool float and a lemon pool float (sweet and tart) completed the scene.

There are also floating gold glitter drink holders to match! Oh, do these come in handy when it’s 105+ degrees outside and you don’t want to leave the pool for a bevvie?! These shatterproof  wine glasses fit perfectly BTW.

See what I mean? Once in the pool, who wants to budge?

Fab Outdoor Decor for a Sparkling Summer Soiree Pool Party | Kelly Golightly

There are so many fab finds at Bed Bath & Beyond for summer entertaining, including this # hashtag dish and FAB letter dishes, perfect for filling with nuts, olives, berries and the like. Also, this banana leaf tablecloth is the cutest! I punched it up with coral napkins, a flamingo wine stopper and golden swizzle sticks that read: Splash, Bubble, Stir and Swizzle.

Finally, aren’t these palm leaf outdoor poufs so chic? I truly felt like I had  a little slice of The Beverly Hills Hotel in my own backyard!

I’ve linked everything below if you’d like to create a little slice of paradise in your backyard too.

p.s. I almost forgot to mention that BB&B has a new awesome membership program called Beyond+.  You basically pay an annual fee of $29 and  get 20% off your entire purchase every time you shop + free shipping! It’s SO worth it (take it from their latest member). 😉  I finally treated myself to the Kitchen Aid mixer I’ve been wanting for years (I got the Aqua hue, aka Tiffany blue) — for 20% off!
