When summer rolls around and your pool is finally up and running, its time to start planning your pool parties for the summer. Instead of just having your friends and family over for a quick dip, you may want to consider some of these memorable, fun pool party ideas! Some of these are perfect for adults only while others would be great for the kids too.
5 Fun Pool Party Ideas:
These first three pool party ideas for kids are perfect for whole family get togethers. The 4th idea is about relaxing for adults. The 5th pool party idea is for adults to have some fun with tropical feel.
Pirate Pool Party Theme
Here is an idea that will get the kids imaginations going. Host a pirate themed pool party. You can make the invitations look like a treasure map to lead the guests to the location of the party and when they arrive they will be welcomed into swashbuckler’s haven. You can have buried treasure at the bottom of the pool and force guests to walk the plank off of the diving board. Top it all off with an old-fashioned sword fight using foam pool noodles. Before the party you may want to review some water safety tips with the kids!
Swim-In Movie Night
Remember drive-in movies? You can easily have the same experience in your own back yard. To host your very own swim-in movie night you first need to buy some floating rafts or inflatable lounge chairs, and then move your outdoor movie screen out by your swimming pool. If you don’t have a big screen you can always rent a projector for the evening. After you’re all set up, you will be ready to float around with your friends and family and watch some of your favorite classics in your own backyard.
Have your friends over for a fun-filled fiesta. Enhance your poolside atmosphere with colored lights and streamers. Hang piñatas around your backyard fill the pool with brightly colored beach balls and have a ‘make your own margarita bar’!
Here’s an idea that parents can enjoy. Host a spa party in your own backyard. You and your guests can relax poolside on deck chairs or float in inflatable loungers. You can hire a masseuse or manicurist to come by and pamper you and your guests. Prepare a cooling face mask and sip on cool summer refreshments while enjoying a relaxing day by your very own pool.
Gilligan’s Island Theme
Who doesn’t love a good themed dress up party. Invite your family and friends over for a fun-filled “three hour tour”. Guests can dress up in costume as their favorite characters and sip drinks out of coconut shells. No one will want to escape from your backyard island!
I hope you have been inspired with new ideas for your pool parties this summer. Make your parties the ones to remember with creative themes and new ideas that will keep your guests coming back for more great times. Do you have any fantastic pool party ideas that you would like to share?
