Shop for summer clothes – what better way to welcome summer than to indulge in some summer outfits? Comfortable home wear, beach wear, swim wear, sports wear…there’s so much to shop for! Have fun shopping but do try not to go overboard… If you are looking to throw a great pool party, but don’t know how, the tips and suggestions below from our experts are exclusively for you…!
Take the weather into consideration – but don’t let it get in the way of throwing an unexpected party. If pool heating is an available option for you, take advantage of it. Don’t wait until the summer rolls around to throw your wet and happening party. Of course, if it’s outdoors, and the weather is pretty harsh, it would be foolish to try and brave it. Remember that you are responsible for the safety of your guests…
Make sure your pool is at it’s best – there is absolutely nothing worse than sending out the party invitation, and then realizing your pool is not at its best. Even before you plan your party food or decide on a day and time to hold it, make sure your pool is clean and at fully functioning. Using a cleaning service for your pool maintenance regularly can reduce the amount of work you’d have to put into it in case of sudden decision parties.
Have in water as well as out of water activities – most hosts assume swimming pool solar heating that since it’s a water party, all their guests are only going to be swimming and frolicking in the water. This is where they go wrong. As a host, you must be prepared for anything; including unexpected bad weather or guests who are not too fond of swimming. So have plenty of activities planned; even for those out of the water.
Have plenty of towels and extra swimwear – sure, your guests will bring them along. But why not be prepared anyway? This is especially a good idea if you plan on throwing a themed party, and your guest doesn’t have a lot of time to prepare for it…
Don’t forget the sunscreen! – there’s no hard and fast rule that every water party you throw has to be exclusively for the adults. Family get-togethers mean a mixed crowd of both adults and children…and the strange combination of the two in form of teenagers. Not a lot of kids will remember to apply sun protection; so have a before the water station for the kids.
Get creative and smart with your drinks – alcoholic beverages are a big no when it comes to parties of this sort. Drowning is a big risk even without pool covers you dulling your senses; especially in large crowds. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative and have to serve plain old water to keep your guests hydrated. From the flavors to how you serve it, you can get as creative as you like!
