It is that time of year when the sound of pool parties, laughter, and fun fills the air. Who wouldn’t love a summer swimming in the pool? You get to enjoy filling up on hot dogs and watermelon and watching the kids play. We love it, too. With that being said, a lot of planning goes into throwing the perfect pool party. Here are some suggestions for you that can help you throw the perfect pool party.
Swimming Pool Party Ideas
The first decision you have to make is what kind of pool party you want. It might take longer to decide on a theme for an adult pool party. Therefore, you are not really sure what party supplies to get. With children, however, just asking the child what he or she wants for the theme is enough.
There are lots of different themes you could use, whether it is a kid’s party or an adult party. Party ideas that people use often during the summer would be those with a red, white, and blue theme. After all, the Fourth of July is a holiday and it is in the summer. You might also want to try an island or ocean theme, as these ideas are very popular for pool parties.
However, why not try a different theme from the traditional ones that people have used in the past? Go to a summer party supply store. Look for lots of toys, floats, and favors that have the same color. You could use different colors for different pool accessories and pool party floats. When you have everything laid out, you could make yourself a rainbow-themed pool party. Other pool party ideas could include fruit, animals, or food, such as hot dogs and hamburgers.
Spectacular Floats and Decorations
In the past, floats used during a pool party were boring and basic. One color rings and floats would loll around your pool, for example. However, pool floats have changed. Now, you can find pool floats to match every mood or every party theme. There are giant pool floats as well that can dominate the pool, not to mention the conversation. A unicorn float we saw is taller than two men.
You should strive to have your floats’ colors coordinate with your party’s theme. This would make for great conversation and great pictures as well.
Of course, pool parties need great party supplies such as decorations and pool toys. However, it is also important to have great food. Your food can coordinate with the theme of your party. For example, if your theme is the rainbow, your food could represent the rainbow as well. Look for fruits and vegetables that represent the huge color scheme of the rainbow. The more creative it is, the better.
Whatever kind of pool party you want to have in your backyard, you’ll want people to talk about your food. Make it easy for them to talk about it. Make sure that your food offerings are finger-friendly. You want people to be able to eat whatever you made easily. Finger-friendly foods are perfect for a pool party. If you are having children at your pool party, you can make food that is kid-friendly as well. Kids can grasp finger foods more easily than trying to manage with a spoon or a fork.
