Halloween Pool Party Ideas

In Party Planning by Platinum Pools

Halloween is just around the corner! This year, skip the boring big-box store Halloween decorations and use your swimming pool as a spooky centerpiece.

Whether you are planning a pool party, hosting a haunted house, or just want to thrill the neighborhood trick-or-treaters, there are plenty of ways to use your swimming pool to create a scary adventure. Here are a few ideas!

Pool Color

You could make your pool super spooky by buying a red pool cover.  Add a few floating candles, bobbing pumpkins, or ghoulish limbs for an added scare.

LED Lights

These floating LED lights from Chill Lights offer soft, customizable lighting you can control with a remote. They come in several different colors and sizes, so you can use them to create a variety of looks.

Adding floating orange lights to your red pool would create a nice back drop to your Halloween party!

Bobbing Pumpkins

Carve pumpkins just like you would normally, then use glow sticks to light them and float them in your pool. Or, for less mess, use a permanent marker to draw jack-o-lantern faces on pumpkins and light the pool with LED lights.

Create a Pool Float Display

Using a pool float, create a life-like spooky display with skeletons or a witch scene.

Or, for a less spooky time, add cute Halloween decorations like pumpkins, fall flowers, and squash. You could even make it a game by adding a post for ring toss. Think of it like a centerpiece, but for your pool!

The Life of the Party!

Skeletons are easy decorations that can be used in multiple ways at a spooky themed pool party. Stretch one out on a lawn chair or sit one in a pool tube and set him afloat in the pool. There are plenty of ways to get creative with plastic skeletons! Just make sure they are plastic and will hold up in the pool water.
