If the challenge of making your pool party the best ever has been consuming more of yourself lately to the point that you can no longer focus on planning for the little things, relax. Just relax. There are things you can do to make your pool party memorable to all your family and guests.
Great if you have a pool in your backyard and you want that to serve as the party venue. If not, then there’s probably a community or public pool you can use nearby. But here’s the twist, and only if you want an experience fresh for everyone who will be partying with you; try a pool venue that none of your guests have tried. A private pool that can be rented perhaps.
Yes, invitations can be verbal. Straightforward, but can be forgotten. If you want your event to be remembered in the future, however, try an invite they could keep. There are countless of creative invite ideas you can try. Googling for the key terms would certainly get you there. Don’t forget to include reminders for the invitees, though, and some witty splash-related quotes, too.
Show your guests that your pool party can only be remembered as yours. Add personal touches to the venue itself. Bring in some of your skills in decorating things. But remember that pool party decorations are expected to be wildly colorful. This means you have to incorporate a lot of colors into the décor, which can be easily done by adding balloons and other colorful things. And, oh, don’t forget the floatable toys, beach balls that everyone can play toss with, and other pool party necessities. Organized everything in such a way that it allows everyone to move easily.
You could always have beach towels, snorkel and mask, sunglasses, flip flops and beach balls as your pool party favors. Or, you could offer something different. Something that your guests would not expect or would be surprised that your party is having as favors. What that would be I leave to you to think about.
A pool party would not be fun without the games and entertainment. Be sure you have a list of games and entertaining activities to keep your guests’ spirit up and high. You could have everyone play a water-based hide and seek, or any game you deem fit and unique enough for the occasion to be remembered.
This doesn’t have to be heavy as everyone’s mood will be on splashing and swimming. Notwithstanding how light the food options should be, be sure they taste exceptionally good and appropriate to the activity. As simple as hot dogs, watermelon, fresh veggies, fruit smoothies, finger sandwiches, popcicles, jello and the likes will surely everyone happy and moving.
