Everything You Need to Throw an Unforgettable Pool Party

With summer in full swing, we know what you’re thinking. It’s time to throw a pool party. And you’re completely right! You haven’t enjoyed summer until you’ve thrown a pool party with your friends and family.

There is an art to pool parties. In this article, we’ll connect you with everything you need to master the art of the pool party.

Kids Pool Party

A Theme

In a way, a ‘pool party’ is a theme in its own. So you don’t have to try too hard. Most will take a beach or luau themed party, but feel free to steal one of these awesome ideas. Unlike most holiday parties, pool parties have the benefit of nearly every object having a purpose. From citronella to keep the bugs away to cups and plates, you don’t need to add a bunch of extra decors.

Good Food

What exactly is good food? Well, it depends on who you ask. When it comes to party food, the best way to ensure that everyone’s happy is to have a variety. Focus on foods that are easy to eat. Now probably isn’t the time to have chili.

To ensure you have something for everyone, use the following checklist:

  • Is there something for vegetarians?
  • Vegans?
  • Little kids?
  • Those with gluten allergies?

If you can say yes to everything above, then you’re guaranteed to have ‘good food’ at your party.

Music for Kids Pool Party

Better Music

Music is the center of every party. Whether it’s good or bad is up to you. Sure, you can’t please everyone but you can find a way to change everyone’s mindset on the music at the party. Use an app like Spotify and ask your guests to add a song to the party playlist!

This does two things:

  1. Gives every guest a way to be involved.
  2. Gives everyone a song to be excited about.

This little mindset trick really changes the attitude of the party. You may even find yourself more willing to listen to songs out of your typical genres.

More Ice

It’s been oppressively hot on every corner of the globe! If you think you have too much ice, you’re wrong. One of the only downsides to having a party in the sun is the reality that no everyone fairs as well under the hot temperatures. Having a ton of ice (and a place to store it) will make sure that everyone stays cool.

Big Toys for Pool

Big Toys

No pool party is complete without pool toys. But let’s be honest… Not all pool toys are created equal. For example, this inflatable unicorn is clearly a cut above the rest. One crazy awesome pool toy will make everyone want to get in the water.

Good friends

Proper planning goes a long way. Plan your pool party in advance and give everyone a chance to pencil it into their schedules. A good rule of thumb is sending invitations at least 3 weeks before your event. This will help you get a higher turnout and leave you more time to plan your party and buy your supplies.
