I like the table decor. You could make something like that with links of color paper.

    for serious! - though mind them not getting into the pool with the balloons, the broken balloon pieces can clog the filter..

awesome idea for a favor - these are crazy cheap and sending them home warm means they have to wait til the parents give it to them frozen :)

take a bunch of pool toys from the dollar store in a bucket like this for the kids to have supplies in. - oh! colored goggles = best thing ever when you're 9. get like 3 colors and they'll be obsessed. (or if they're cheap enough you could always make little favor bags of a couple toys like goggles and something else and let them have them at the beginning of the party.

lemonades are always a tasty drink idea, something like orangina might be a super tasty idea too. :)

i post this for the tissue puffs in the background. - they're super easy to make. take styrofoam balls from michaels, then either use pins or hot glue to fasten cupcake wrappers or just small pieces of tissue paper. fasten as much as you can to cover the ball and it ends up looking miraculous. oh and at the beginning just attach a length of hemp or ribbon so you can fasten it later. then you can hang them all together like this or around an umbrella ...

these kinds of pictures are required :) -- lesson learned from my own experience: push the shutter button basically as soon as you tell them to jump in.

Blue Jello + Cool Whip = Cloud Parfaits - I would make a huge one of these instead of individuals - maybe put it in a fishbowl :)

i like this a lot -- and you could either do the sign in the middle or make a little banner thing going across saying Riley or something.

    and really, she could keep it after... its freakin cute

maybe do a tropical/luau setup? - these would be super easy and cute to do...though I think I might suggest using hot glue instead of these dot things..
