How to Throw the Perfect Pool Party

The summer is coming to an end and school will be starting soon. Throwing a pool party is the perfect way to soak up the last bit of summer with family and friends. The best way to stay cool when the heat rises to unbearable temperatures is by taking a dip in the cool water of your own pool. Spending a day by the pool while listening to some of your favorite music, playing games and enjoying some good food and iced lemonade is a fantastic way to remember all the fun you’ve had over the summer.

Here are some helpful tips for throwing the perfect pool party:

Welcome your guests

When your guests first arrive at your home take some time to show them around and point out the bathrooms. Offer them a drink and introduce them to your other friends. Make them feel welcomed and comfortable in your home.


Pick a theme for your party such as tropical theme with tiki torches, fresh coconuts and palm trees. This can transform your backyard into a sanctuary. You can also ask that guests arrive in style aligned with your theme or hand them grass skirts as they walk through the door. The decorations for the party will create the atmosphere for the entire day.

Drinks and food

You can ask guests to bring their favorite food or drink to help save you time in preparation, or you can have an assortment of food and drinks to choose from. Make a signature cocktail for the party and punch for the little ones. Have a variety of drinks for all ages stored in a large cooler filled with ice to make it easier for guests to rehydrate themselves freely. Make sure to stock up on plenty of water.

Have some easy to snack foods available in the shade or inside because everyone swimming in the pool is bound to get hungry. Vegetable platters, sliders, chips and dips, fruits and cheeses are some delicious snacks ideas. Grilling hamburgers and hot dogs around lunchtime will keep everyone happy.
