How to Organize a Pool Party

How to Organize a Pool Party

Summer parties are a great way to enjoy time with friends and family. If you want to organize a party this summer, then opt for a pool party, as they are easy to organize and loads of fun. However, as with every party, you need to consider a number of things before being ready for the party. Below is a list of things you need to do to organize your very own pool party for the summer:

1.     Find a Pool

If you have a private pool, there can be nothing better. However, if not, then you will need to rent a pool at the local community club or a hotel.

2.     Decide the Date for the Event

When will you host your event? Is your birthday coming in the summer? Do you want to meet up with your friends during your summer holidays? Pick a date for the event as soon as possible, as your invitations and other preparations will be made accordingly.

3.     Make a Guest List

Are you only hosting a party for a few selected friends or a large bash? Create your guest list so that you will have an estimate on the number of people coming to the event.

4.     Create the Invites

You can either print your invites on your own or make your invites by hands. Alternatively, you can hire a professional to print your invitations as well. You can be impersonal and call or text a few selected friends or make it a big event by using proper invitations, the choice is yours.

5.     Finalize Your Menu

As it is a pool party, keep light refreshments and snacks for earlier hours while your guests are in the pool. You can then serve a good meal at lunchtime. The menu depends upon your personal tastes and the preferences of your guests.

6.     Plan for Music and Other Entertainment

Do you solely want to keep the pool as a source of entertainment or are you planning to spice things up with some music in the background? Hire a DJ or assign one person the task on setting up music during the event. If you want to entertain your guests with games and contests, brainstorm on theses ideas and finalize a few good ones. You will need to prepare for these activities in advance to have them ready for the party.

7.     Decorate the Pool Area according to the Theme of Your Party

Use yellow and blue colors to decorate the venue. You can use flowers as well to give it a bright and fresh appearance. Add tables and chairs for your guests near the poolside to provide comfortable seating to your guests.

8.     Other Prerequisites

When writing the invites, remind your guests to bring plenty of sunscreen and keep some in stock just in case your guests need it at the event. Use umbrellas to provide shady areas around the pool if there is not cover provided from the heat of the sun. With a pool party, you need to serve cold refreshments, so have plenty of ice available for use. You can ask local businesses for door prizes. You can also make party favors to give to your guests at the end of the event. Pool parties are a great way to make new friends, and recruit new volunteers for your community. Pass out notices and invite neighbors to help you throw the party. Be sure not to discriminate against any protected class(es) of residents (including children). Make sure to follow all community rules. Check with your lawyer and/or insurance agent before serving or allowing alcohol.

Organize your pool party by following these steps and have fun with your friends. The pool awaits you!
