What better way to celebrate the summer than by throwing an epic pool party? Making waves and soaking in the sun is the best, especially during the summer season. Make a good impression and wow your guests by following these simple yet effective tips for throwing your next pool party.
Barbecue on the Grill
Barbecuing on the grill, whether an infrared or traditional BBQ grill, is a must when hosting a summer pool party. You can make an assortment of tasty finger foods that your guests will enjoy. If you don’t own a grill, you should consider buying one to enhance the summer vibes and your pool party food menu. Instead of cold-cut sandwiches and chips, grill steaks, burgers, hot dogs, and fresh vegetables.
Purchase Pool Accessories
Pool accessories are a must for a pool party. Invest in floating devices, pool noodles, or even a pool slide to make the most of your party and entertain your guests while also allowing them to relax. Pool accessories also add a fun pop of color to the scene.
Make an Awesome Playlist
Music is an essential part of any party. Compile the perfect playlist to create an upbeat atmosphere that will energize guests and uplift the mood. Music is also important because it’ll help bring your guests together, which will help you create fond memories.
Get Festive With Decorations
Having festive party decorations is another great tip for throwing an unforgettable pool party. Decorations set the mood and tie a theme together. Buy fun summer-themed decorations to add fun splashes of color and bring the essence of the party to life.
Plan Fun Pool Party Games
What’s a pool party without fun pool party games? Swimming and playing in the pool will make up most of the event, so you can encourage participation by having an energizing lineup of games ready to play.
Here are a few suggestions to consider:
- Pool basketball
- Water polo
- Pool race
- Water balloon games
- Watermelon push relay
Get creative and, most importantly, have fun with the planning and execution of your pool party. An unforgettable event is only a few steps away this summer!
