1. Your Pool Party Theme
A theme sets the tone for the event. It’s your chance to have fun with decorations, invitations, food and games. Our favourites are:
Hawaiian Luau: Break out the grass skirts and tiki torches and turn your backyard into a tropical paradise!
Under the Sea: The wonders of the ocean will be in your pool. Let sharks and mermaids come to life at your next party!
Sweet Splash: Inflatable cupcakes and donuts in your pool are sure to create a candy wonderland that everyone will love!
A theme is a good way to get kids and adults excited about your pool party. It lets everyone feel included in the fun!
2. At Your Pool Party, Safety First
Have pool safety measures in place before starting your party. Consider this when planning a pool party. The safety of you and your guests should be a top priority. Here are some tips!
- Hire a trained lifeguard or two!
- Have a fully stocked first aid kit ready
- Set pool rules before swimming
- Assign swim buddies
- Provide life vests for younger or non-swimmer guests
Keeping everyone safe in the pool is essential. Taking preventative measures makes sure no accidents happen. It also lets everyone enjoy themselves without any worries.
3. Have the Pool Party Essentials
The excitement of a pool party might cause guests to forget their swimming essentials. Some of the things to have on hand include:
- Extra towels
- Swim shorts or bathing suit
- Sandals or flip flops
- Extra set of clothing
Be sure to have some extra things on hand at your party. This will ensure your guests are comfortable and having a good time.
4. Pool Party Fun & Games
You can’t have a pool party without some awesome games! Everyone loves Marco polo, but here are some of the games that will make a splash:
- Swim competition
- Noodle Joust
- Water balloon toss
- Water tag
- Diving competition
Plan some games ahead of time to make your party a hit. Get as creative as you want and encourage kids to use their imaginations!
5. Pool Party Partner
Hire some professional swim instructors to add some excitement to your party! Their knowledge and skill level can bring your pool next level by providing:
- Organized pool party games
- Teaching new swim techniques
- Providing pool safety and security
If you have a big pool, it’s difficult to watch everyone at once. So having someone to teach your kids how to swim is a big help!
6. Pool Party Food Fest
Your swimming guests will get hungry for some poolside snacks! If there’s a central theme for your party, get creative with your snacks. We love hamburgers and hot dogs, but let us help you kick it up a notch this summer with some of our suggestions:
- Fruit skewers with chocolate and orange dipping sauce
- Beach ball ice cream sandwiches
- Classic snow cones
- BBQ chicken flatbread
- Tropical Guacamole
- Baja fish tacos
These all sound delicious. Pick a few that match the theme of your party. Always remember to hydrate often and wait an hour after eating before you go swimming!
