We’ve been to our fair share of pool parties and summer soirees, and we’re more than familiar with what to expect from these gatherings. Barbecue, popsicles, bikinis and chlorine are just a handful of typical summer party staples we have always and will always love—but unique, pretty and chic? Not always the first thing that comes to mind. Thank goodness for the stylish ladies of Bicyclette Boutique, who blew us away with their feminine and colorful pastel pool party! Paige and Alyssa stepped outside of the box when planning the cotton-candy hued get together, opting for sophisticated floral design, plenty of pink, and enough yummy treats to give you a week-long sugar high. Click through our slideshow to see more of the colorful event and read about Paige and Alyssa’s party planning inspirations!
Says Alyssa: “Paige and I got together at the beginning of this summer to dream up some adventures that we wanted to embark on together, and one of the first things we agreed on was that we needed to throw a really magical party. Though we’re both Canadian, the two of us are California girls at heart, and we wanted to plan an event that brought together all of our favorite things, like hot pink flamingos, pastel hues and tons of dreamy confetti. By the end of our brainstorm date, we had decided on our theme: Pastel Pool Party.”

We knew a table loaded with treats was non-optional, so we teamed up with The Wedding Cake Shoppe and ended up with amazing donuts, cupcakes, macarons, cookies and a pink ombre cake so pretty that we were sad to cut into it. We were glad when we finally did though: it was filled with an explosion of edible pastel confetti!
