Planning a night pool party at home? You do not need to be an experienced party planner to be able to pull it off! Keep on reading and we’ll share some valuable tips that will make it possible to organize a party that will leave your guests wanting more and looking forward to the next time you will invite them over!
While there are endless designs of LED pool lights that you can consider, one of the best is a glowing ball. It is an instant way to add character to the swimming pool, making it look more enchanting come nighttime. Putting a single glow ball won’t do the trick. Instead, you should use several sizes of the same shape to create a design statement. It will also be good if they change colors to make the mood more dramatic.
If the pool party is more intimate, such as when you invite the family over to have dinner, you can consider candles as floats instead of the LED glow ball. Make sure to use the right candles. Otherwise, it will be frustrating as it can get wet and the light won’t stay up for a long time. Use candles that are big enough to float in the pool. Use lots of candles for a more stylish look. You can also add floating flowers to make the environment more romantic.
This is a clever way to make the pool more magical. The jars do not have to float on the water. Instead, you can place them in clusters on the side of the pool to give it a different personality. Their different colors will surely captivate the attention of any guest. By the time the party ends, there will be someone asking you how the jars were made. You will need a clear mason jar. Cut a glow stick into half and put it in the jar. Put the glitters in the jar, making sure they stick on the edges from the inside. Put the lid on, shake the jar, and put it on the side of the pool.
Paper lanterns can easily get wet, so you have to make sure that they won’t get in direct contact with the water. Like the jar, you can put them on the sides. You can also hang them over the pool. You can also light up the lantern from the inside to make it look more appealing. You can choose to do these lanterns on your own or buy one that is ready-made if you do not have the patience and creativity necessary to complete the task.
Balloons seem overrated in terms of decorating, but you can actually be surprised with regards to what they can actually do to transform a boring pool into a lively place. If you expect that no one will be swimming in the pool, fill it with balloons. It should be crowded enough to the point that there is no space in between. Underneath, there should be lights, which will make the balloons appear as if they are glowing when you see them from above.
Take your pool party to the next level by transforming the backyard into a small private theater. You will need to have a projector to do this. Hang a blank white screen at one end of the pool. At the other end, set up a table and a projector. If you have a light-colored wall, this can already double as the screen for your movie screening.
Whether it is a kid’s birthday party, an intimate family gathering, or a Christmas dinner, among other events, a pool party is always a good idea! Regardless whether it is day or night, it is sure to be fun, as long as you properly prepare for it. That being said, read on and learn from some of the tips we will be sharing!
Before you even think of the way to decorate the venue or the food and drinks that will be served, pay attention to making the pool clean. Especially if you expect the guests to be swimming, the pool should be in its tip-top condition. You should use an automatic pool cleaner to get rid of the dirt and the debris that can give guests an unpleasant swimming experience.
There are many ways by which it will be possible to add a splash of color during the pool party. One of the easiest would be to throw in some balloons in the pool. If the party is at nighttime, you will also benefit from using colorful pool lights. Even outside of the pool, you can be colorful. Use straws with bright colors. Set-up vibrant-colored pillows and blankets to create a picnic theme.
Blow some floats to make the party more fun. Floats will be multipurpose. It can be used by kids who do not know how to swim. Also, it can be used for taking that IG-worthy shots. Pool floats are available in a wide array of designs and colors, so you will never run out of choices. Whether it is a unicorn, donut, popsicle, pineapple, or flamingo, among other designs, it is sure to make the swimming pool more inviting.
It is not just all about making the pool look beautiful. For an epic party, make sure that there are games, among other forms of entertainment that would make your guests want to stay longer. Provide prizes that will motivate the guests to join the game. See to it that the games will be appropriate to the age of those people who are in the party.
Aside from the games, music will also be important to keep the guests entertained during the party. Just be careful to not play it too loud so that your neighbors won’t end up complaining of the noise. Prepare a playlist, which will largely depend on the age of the people who will be attending the party.
If budget permits, giving your guests a little something to take home with them is another sure-fire way to make the party incredible and memorable. It does not have to be expensive. A lei, party hat, or cheap sunglass could do. Look for something that guests can actually use and at the same time, will make them remember your party.
This is perhaps the most important aspect of coming up with an incredible pool party. Make sure that your guests’ tummies will be filled. Prepare food and drinks that are appropriate for the theme. A BBQ party will be nice during the summer. Make sure as well that there are drinks, especially refreshing cocktails that will be perfect to beat a hot day. An ice cream station will also be nice to have, especially for a kid’s party.
