Labor Day Pool Party Food

Without a doubt, food plays an important role in any successful party.  In this case of having a Labor Day pool party, the best thing is to prepare a light and a simple menu. Prepare a buffet that includes cold appetizers, buns with hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches. This is a straightforward and quick food idea to do, that is a success at any summer pool party.

What about dessert? There is nothing better than serving a good assortment of the fruits of the season. Prepare delicious fruit skewers and also provide other cold foods such as ice cream or gelatin for more variety.


The food should go along with cold drinks that keep your guests well hydrated. Prepare a few jugs of lemonade to quench thirst and other beverages such as fruit slushies, smoothies or refreshing cocktails. It is important to make sure that your guests have water available to avoid anyone getting dehydrated.Beverages For Labor Day Pool Party


Organizing games and activities inside the pool is a great way to make the event a delightful and fun experience. Playing wars with balloons or water pistols are ideal for entertaining and having a good time full of fun and laughter. You can also place a net in the center of the pool to play volleyball or prepare games with inflatable balls and floats.

If you have a large pool, the best idea you can have to surprise the little ones is to simply place large inflatables throughout the pool, and they will have a great time.

Remember, most of all; safety comes first.  It’s good to have a few life-saving jackets and a first aid kit on hand.  It is also important to have available phone numbers of the nearest hospital and EMT Services.
