5 Things you need to throw the perfect pool partyThink It First
Whether it’s a daytime get together with family, a casual poolside barbecue with friends, or a nighttime gathering with a view of the pool, a lot of work goes into planning the perfect pool party. However with enough time and prep, you can make the day (or night) unforgettable. Here’s what you need to do.
It’s no fun throwing a party if you don’t know who’s coming. While word of mouth is nice, people are forgetful. Send your friends and family an invite on Facebook or via email, so that your guests can add the party to their calendar or put it in their phones. Don’t forget to tell guests it’s a poolside event so they bring their swimsuits and towels with them. In addition to preparing guests, an online invite can help you get an idea of the number of people you can expect at your party.
Parade your pool toys
Nothing says “summer fun” more than a pool full of fantastic floaties. Bring your pool party to the next level with an array of pool toys, inflatables, noodles and other festive pool accessories. Having a variety of pool toys for your guests to play with will keep your guests busy and make the pool area feel livelier. If you’re looking for a way to keep your pool essentials safe before and after the event, your best bet is the Pool Blaster Pool Pouch, a lightweight, durable pool float storage with an extra large storage capacity. It’s perfect for holding your toys, beach balls, and inflatables before, during, and after your bash.
Get your pool picture perfect
The pool’s no fun when it’s dirty and full of crud. But who has time for hours of cleaning—especially in the hot summer climate? An automatic robotic pool vacuum like the cordless CX-1 robotic pool cleaner is the perfect solution to your dilemma. Not only is it one of the best robotic pool cleaners on the market, it’s super easy to use. No cords, no drama. Just set it and forget. Plus, it works for both above-ground and inground pools. By the time you’re done prepping for the party, your pool will look cleaner than ever!
Prep pool-friendly bites
A bag of wet potato chips by the pool is a no-no. Keep your guests pleased with pool-friendly snacks like fruit skewers, cupcakes, ice pops, and other picnic classics. Just make sure you keep the bags of salty snacks far away—the moment one wet party-goer dips their hand into a bag of chips, the rest of them get soggy and wet! If you’re really jonesing for some salty treats, leave them out in bowls with a scooper and cups for some sog-free snacking.
Give your guests fun activities
Keep your guests busy with fun backyard games and activities. Adding structure to your party helps ensure your attendees never get bored. Pack your backyard and pool area with a variety of activities that will keep them busy, relaxed, and in a good mood. Set up cornhole in the yard, volleyball in the pool area, and leave water-resistant games like dominoes or Jenga at tables where people will gather.
