We’re having the reception in my grandparents’ backyard. They have a HUGE yard and an equally huge pool. There will be plenty of paper lanterns, white christmas lights, etc to decorate the reception area but I was wondering if any of you had any (inexpensive) suggestions about ways to decorate the pool?
I thought about paper luminaries but don’t like the idea of the flames, and LED lights are a no go. Floating candles tend to bunch up in one corner of the pool.

floating flowers? I’m sure theres a way to make them float all night

they actually do make little flower floats… they look like small glass intertubes. not sure if they would be practical for a large pool though.

I saw this idea on Martha Stewart’s website a few weeks ago, and both the light columns and floating balls could totally work:
And if you’re having problems with floating items ending up in one corner of the pool, it may be because the pool filter is on, and turning it off may fix the problem.

You can also keep them from bunching up by anchoring them with washers at the bottom of the pool with a little bit of fishing line. Paint he washers the color of the pool liner and they will blend in.
You could also chang eht color of the pool lights to add another decor item.

I don’t remember where I saw it, but a couple had their monogram letters floating in their pool with petals scattered around. It was really pretty and simple, and I’m assuming, cheap.

any new thoughts on this? There is a pool at my venue and I’d love to put something in it that lights up, but trying to keep costs down.
