Throw the Best POOL PARTY with these Brilliant Tips!

Summer is already in full swing and it’s time to soak up some sun. How about throwing a pool party in the backyard and having a blast with family and kids? A pool party is not only a brilliant way to get active but also find ample ways to have fun. You can incorporate fun games, dance to the tunes of your favorite soundtracks, relish frozen desserts, take a sunbath, and do so much more. If you are throwing a pool party for the first time, here is a rundown of quick tips to plan it to perfection. 

  1. Send a Pool-Inspired Invitation Card

Before you transform your backyard into a tropical paradise, think about what your party invite would look like. Since it’s the pool party, create a party invite design derived from the theme. Use a good mix of various shades of blue to design your invitations. If you are throwing a party for your kid’s birthday bash, make sure to use fun and vibrant colors, such as baby pink, orange, yellow, green, and so on. You can include a list of items on the invite you expect your guests to bring along with them.

  1. Set Up an Ice Cream Bar

Cold or frozen desserts are a must for a summer party. To serve the crowd, set up a mini ice cream parlor or bar. Instead of serving regular ice cream and sticks, please kids and adults alike with fruits & ice-cream combo, ice-cream & waffles, ice cream topped with nuts and berries, and so on. The more variety, the better!

  1. Drinks are a Must

Since your guests will be sweating all day outdoors, you need to keep a stock of refreshing drinks for them. You can set up a mocktail bar with fancy drinks. To keep things simple, serve soda and water. If kids are gearing up for the party, you will need some soft drinks, smoothies, or juices too. To elevate things up, a floating bar for your adult guests is sure to please everyone.

  1. Be Mindful of the Decor

Decorations are a must to set the tone of the party and bring in the desired vibes. For a summer pool party, beach balls, unicorns, flamingos, flowers, and balloons are a great addition to enliven the atmosphere. You can also strategically place tiki torches in your backyard to illuminate the area in the evening. Set a table and use fun and inviting colors to decorate it for a super-relaxed meal. Other decorations to opt for include lanterns, rugs, palm trees, streamers, confetti, glassware, and mini planters.

  1. Create a Party Playlist

A pool party without music & dance is like a dessert without chocolate. So, create a party playlist featuring all the fun and trendy songs and play them nonstop at the party. You can invest in a loudspeaker or rent to jazz up your backyard with party music. Alternatively, use streaming services to play some old-school or summertime soundtracks.

  1. Plan Some Fun Pool-Party Games

With plenty of friends, food, and music, your summertime pool party is sure to rock. To take the fun and enjoyment factor up a notch, plan some pool party games. If kids are present at the party, consult a swimming competition or have a water balloon fight. Tug of war, deck of cards, pool scavenger hunt, and pool volleyball are some incredible options to keep guests entertained.

  1. Lounge Chairs or Plush Seating

Although it’s a pool party and your guests will be spending most of the time in the pool, a few lounge chairs will allow them short breaks to relax. You can also opt for plush seating with soft cozy pillows and blankets to make the overall lounge area alluring. A seating area shaded by colorful umbrellas will protect them from the sun while allowing them to make the most of the lounge time.

  1. Take Care of Pets

If you have pets, do not leave them behind and let them join the festivities. You can plan a fitness swim for your cats and dogs, make them relish desserts, and take instant polaroid photos with them.

  1. Think About Poolside Party Favors

Throwing a high-end pool party without party favors sounds boring. Go the extra mile to delight your guests with interesting poolside party favors. Plan to get custom accessories based on the theme for your friends and family. Goodie bags, swimming goggles, colorful beach towels, and flip flops are great for adults. For kids, you can consider toy sand buckets, customized cookies, bubbles, inflatable beach balls, water bottles, and drinking straws.

  1. Keep Food and Snacks Light 

Consider light food for your pool party — like a fruit cream bowl, tropical fruits, a light sandwich, or fruit salad. For snacks, colorful and vibrant flamingo cookies and rainbow cakes or desserts are good to go. If you want an array of salty treats, opt for corn chips, pretzels, and potato chips along with salsa or hummus.

  1. Set Up a Sunscreen Station

Not all guests will bring sunscreen along with them. To help them spend hours near the pool without damaging their precious skin, set up a sunscreen station.
