In Party Planning by Platinum Pools

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to throw a pool party! But where do you start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s your ultimate checklist for throwing a summer pool party that your guests will never forget. 

1. Invitations 

Start by sending out invitations at least two weeks in advance. You can opt for digital invites or go traditional with paper ones. Make sure to include the date, time, location, and any other important details like whether it’s a potluck or if guests should bring their own pool floaties.

2. Decorations 

Decorations set the mood for your party. Choose a theme and decorate accordingly. You could go tropical with palm leaves and flamingos or opt for a classic beach theme with seashells and sandcastles. Don’t forget to decorate the pool with floating candles or glow sticks for a magical touch. 

3. Food and Drinks 

No party is complete without food and drinks. For a pool party, opt for light and refreshing options. Think fruit skewers, grilled veggies, and cold pasta salads. For drinks, you can’t go wrong with iced tea, lemonade, or a fruity punch. If it’s an adult party, consider adding a cocktail station. 

4. Games 

Keep your guests entertained with a variety of pool games. Classics like Marco Polo and water volleyball are always a hit. For the kids, consider inflatable pool toys or a water balloon fight. 

5. Music 

Create a playlist that will keep the party vibe going. Mix in some summer hits, some classics, and maybe even some songs that go with your theme. Remember to keep the volume at a level where guests can still chat comfortably. 

6. Safety 

Finally, don’t forget about safety. Make sure there’s a first aid kit handy, and if there are children, ensure there’s always an adult keeping an eye on the pool. 

And there you have it, your ultimate summer pool party checklist. Now all that’s left is to kick back, relax, and enjoy the party!
