How to Plan the Perfect Pool Party

How to Plan the Perfect Pool Party

Throwing a party? Don’t just whip something up with no thought.

Good parties, even casual pool-side ones, start with careful thought and attention to detail. And food. Lots of food.

  1. Bring sunscreen. Look, we love a tan as much as the next person, but nothing ruins a party like a painful sunburn, so bring a tube or two for you and your guests.
  2. Have sweet and salty snacks. If you’re bringing the food, don’t only bring sweet things. Having a mix of sweet, savory, and salty snacks will prevent a sugar burnout.
  3. Don’t forget pool toys. Inflatable pool toys, beach games, and playing cards to give guests plenty to do and make the day super memorable.
  4. Have backup towels. It’s considerate as the host to have a few spare towels for your guests who forget theirs.
  5. Be sure there’s a place to change. If it’s an outdoor party, consider bringing a tent or some other portable structure for guests coming straight from work to be able to slip into swim suits.
  6. Take a sun break. Exercise, lots of snacks, and prolonged exposure to the sun can make anyone cranky. A planned break will keep the day going strong for longer.
  7. Have a backup plan. Know what the rainy-day plans are if the weather turns foul. Movie date? Puddle splashing party? Whatever the backup is, make sure to communicate the details to your guests.
