Hosting the Perfect Pool Party

Fourth of July is right around the corner, making your pool the perfect backdrop for an Independence Day celebration friends and family will love. So what does it take to be be a “Hostess with the Mostest?”  Here are a few tips to create a patriotic pool party everyone will enjoy.

Decorating 101

No need to run to the store, you probably have the perfect decorations right around your home. Grab a basket or large bowl, fill with sunscreen and bug spray, and place towards the entrance for guest to easily grab and apply as needed. Place a laundry basket filled with towels near your door letting people dry off before entering. Your kids small plastic pool makes the perfect cooler for drinks, while plastic pails are ideal for chips, salad and fresh fruit. Place some glow-in-the-dark sticks in empty water bottles to safely illuminate your pool after dark.

Poolside Dishes

When planning a menu, remember you want to have fun, too. Skip a large meal, instead opting for a  variety of appetizers and finger foods. Fresh fruit kabobs, chips and dip or salsa, veggie trays and finger sandwiches are filling and easy to grab. Lawn chairs, beach towels and inflatable rafts not only add a festive feel your yard, but also provide guests with comfortable places to sit and eat.   

Finishing Touches

Download a couple playlists from music apps such as Pandora, Spotify or Apple Music that can run consistently during the party, with a couple bluetooth speakers set up around the pool for the final touch of background music. Last but not least, don’t forget to have fun.
