Fun Pool Party Ideas for All Ages
– Who Says Only Kids Get Pool Parties?
Planning a party by the swimming pool is fun and it is not just for kids. From those casual get-togethers to big birthday bashes, there are plenty of ways to pull off the perfect pool party (regardless of your age). When hosting a party, it is best to start with a pool party theme. That way you can tailor your food, drinks and invitations to match.
Pool Party Themes for All Ages
You do not have to be a kid to enjoy a pool party. After all, one of the biggest rewards to owning a swimming pool is being able to use it for entertaining. If you are looking to host a party by your pool, here are some fun theme ideas to get you started.
- Theater Night – Instead of a drive-in, have a “dive-in” party. You can buy inflatable lounge chairs and then set up a movie screen outside (or rent a projection screen). Pick a water-themed classic, like “Jaws” or for the kids “Finding Nemo.” Just make sure every party attendee has a place to sit back, relax and watch the movie while enjoying the pool or spa.
- The Exclusive Lounge – For adults, host a lounge night at your house. Serve up stylish cocktails in fun, plastic glasses. Use floating beds and chairs for guests to relax on and offer inexpensive flip-flops tied with ribbon as your memento gift for guests as they arrive. If you have an outdoor speaker system, play some lounge-worthy music, like instrumental jazz.
- Host a Luau – Luaus are one of the more popular themes for swimming pools. Have your guests wear Hawaiian shirts and bathing suits to the party. Decorate with Tiki torches, tropical plants, flowers and bright colors. Serve up Hawaiian dishes, like pineapple chicken or a Hawaiin classic like Spam. If you are daring enough, host a pig roast that your guests can enjoy after a day of swimming.
- Vegas Fun – Decorate your house with neon lights and bright colors. Greet guests at the door with glow sticks that they can wear while swimming and toss a few in the bottom of the pool (for a night party) to add a little fun color to the event. Treat your guests to a Vegas-style buffet, complete with fun cocktails. Buy waterproof cards and have casino games hosted in the water or in areas outside of the water.
Next time you are thinking about having a pool party, think outside of the “beach” party theme. There is no limit to what you can do with a swimming pool – from a girl’s night out to pirates, and more.
