Nothing quite says summer like a gathering by the pool. Follow Aimee’s tips below for hosting a pool party filled with colorful décor and the perfect party atmosphere.
1. Stock Up on Towels, Sun Protection, and Toys.
Whether hosting a few friends or a big crowd all guests will need towels, sun protection, and toys. If you prefer, ask guests to bring their own, but for those who forget I keep three galvanized pails stocked by the pool. 1. The smallest pail is a sun protection station. 2. The medium-sized pail holds goggles, small pool balls, and diving sticks. 3. And the largest pail stores clean towels for guests. At the end of the party I reuse the large pail to collect the wet towels.
2. Create a Party Atmosphere.
Pool parties don’t require a lot of decorations. Add several TIKI Brand Island King Large Flame Torches, a TIKI Brand Fire Sculpture – I love my Antigua, and globe string lights to create the perfect ambiance. Hang some paper lanterns, turn up the music, and the party setup is complete!
3. Make it a Potluck.
If preparing a full meal for guests seems overwhelming, don’t put off entertaining. Make the Pool Party a Potluck and ask guests to bring their favorite poolside appetizers to share!
A pool party is simple to host, fun for friends of all ages, and a great way to escape the summer heat. Follow these easy tips for a party that is relaxing for the host and guests!
