It’s Summer time and it’s hot! This is the perfect time to have some outdoors fun with a nice, cool, pool party! Why not cool down, while getting some sunlight? Don’t have a pool? Make it a splash party! Let’s grab a few tips on how to throw an amazing Pool/Splash party.
Your guests are always your most important aspect of the party. You want to be sure that they enjoy their time and are wowed by the festivities. Let’s get into it!
Step 1: Planning
The first step is to be prepared! Have all of your supplies ready to ensure everything goes as planned. Here’s what we’ll need:
- Pool or Slip & Slide
- Tiki Torches
- Towels for each guest just in case they don’t bring their own
- Tablecloths to really set the scene
- Beach Balls for centerpieces
- Giant Shades (found at Dollar Tree)
- Plenty of Water Guns & Squirters for fun!
- Food & Drinks
- Cooking Dishes and Bowls
Step 2: Invite
You want to be sure to invite your guests at least 2 weeks ahead of time. It is best to invite your guests one month out to ensure they have time to fit your event into their schedule. If you invite them too soon, they may simply forget. It’s safe to invite between 2 and 4 weeks ahead of time.
Step 3: Day of the Party Set Up
This is the fun part! Set up your party! Grab all of your decor and head to the yard for your outdoor fun!
Step 4: Food
Start cooking your food 30 minutes to an hour before the party to ensure your guests get to enjoy it.
Step 5: Party
Your guests have arrived and now it’s time to party. Enjoy the fun in the sun!
