When it comes to parties, a pool party just seems so indulgent and a lot of fun, don’t you think? Whether you rent a house with a pool or you are lucky to have your own, a pool party can be perfect for any occasion.
For a summer birthday or even a Christmas party, if the pool is heated, they can be a great option to consider. So if you fancy throwing a pool party, here are some of the things to consider.
The Ultimate Pool Party
Perfect For Any Occasion
Make sure the pool is in good condition and safe to use
It is important that you ensure that the pool is in good condition and is safe to use. If you haven’t had any pool maintenance for a while then now would be a good time. The last thing you want are accidents or people not feeling well after swimming in the pool. You may already keep up with pool maintenance, but it might be a good idea to get it specially cleaned and treated just before your party.
What about the catering?
Another thing to think about when it comes to your pool party is food and drink. Chances are, you won’t want to organize a full heavy meal as we all know this isn’t safe or appropriate if you have people swimming or in a pool. But you can offer light snacks or a buffet where they can enjoy nibbles.
Drinks are also something you want to be mindful of. You may be organizing an adult party where alcohol is involved, but you will want to ensure that everyone is drinking responsibly. If they choose not to drink responsibly, don’t let them go into the pool. It may be best to have fun in the pool earlier on, and then everyone can enjoy the party with music and games later into the evening without the worry of drinking and using the pool.
Will you have a theme?
Another thing to think about would be whether or not you want a theme for your pool party. The party may be to celebrate something specific such as a birthday, but you can still consider a theme. Maybe it will be a glam theme or a color scheme like red or gold. The options are endless and you can ask people to get involved with dressing up to your theme as well.
Adults only or including kids?
Pool parties are so much fun for adults and children who are confident swimmers. You may want to organize an adults-only event, but if you do get kids involved, then some inflatables in the pool will definitely create a lot of fun and entertainment. You could also blow up some beach balls and organize games in the pool for everyone to get involved. A kid’s party in the pool can also be a great way to celebrate an occasion. Just ask the parents to stay so you have some extra supervision.
I hope this has inspired you to organize a pool party.
