What You Need

To Throw a Pool Party

You’ve got the pool, but what else are you planning for your upcoming pool party? A few fun party details are all you need to turn pool day into party day.  

Take note from the classic beach ball and decorate your party scene in bright primary colors with balloons and streamers. A pool party is a classic, so we think classic decor is the perfect fit.

Once you’ve planned the decor, it’s time to think about drinks, food and desserts. Drinks at your pool party are necessary to keep your friends and family hydrated in the sun! Since no glass is allowed by the pool, create your very own plastic stadium cups to serve beverages in. Or, bring your drinks in cans and bottles and have some themed party koozies for guests to use.

A classic summer party meal is grilling hamburgers and hot dogs. No grill? No problem! Bring all the fixings to make delicious sub sandwiches. You can set up a build-your-own station and supply bread, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, peppers, cold cuts and condiments. Finish off the table with some themed party luncheon napkins for guests to snag with their meal. Whatever the main dish, complement wish sides like watermelon and chips! Think tasty, but easy to transport, eat and clean up for your pool party food.

Cupcakes and popsicles make for easy pool party desserts. Guests can eat them both with their hands, and clean up is pretty simple! Theme your cupcakes with some festive pool party decor like little candy beach balls or flamingos.

Now, for activities. The pool, of course, will be the main event at your party. You can make the splash even more special with pool floats and pool toys like noodles, water balls and diving sticks. If you have the opportunity to set up a net for water volleyball, take it! These days, you can get all sorts of fun pool floats—flamingos, unicorns, even pineapples!

Don’t forget the sunscreen!
