Today is one of the hottest days of the year in my area. I’m not sure if a record will be broken but the thermometer is on the way to 90 degrees for sure. Days like this bring to mind ways to cool off and beat the heat. The perfect type of party for this weather is a Summer Pool Party. If you have a pool in your backyard, invite your friends over to swim. Here are some great ideas for hosting one.
Invite your guests over using a flip flop shaped party invitation. Include a pair of sunglasses or a deflated beach ball in the package for a unique twist that is sure to catch their attention. Make sure to let everyone know it is a pool party and to bring their swim suit and beach towel.
Serve food that is easy to grab in between times in the pool. Pizza, hot dogs and burgers are always a hit. Your guests will love the ease of munching on some fruit kabobs. If it is also a birthday party create a birthday cake that matches the theme. Use a beach ball, flip flop or your swimming pool as inpiration.
Make sure you have plenty of things in the pool for your guest to float on and play with. Pool noodles are always popular and don’t take up much room. Have some spare towels and sunblock on hand in case your guests forget theirs. Enjoy your summer pool party.
