Patriotic Party Inspiration: Our Favorite Pool Party Ideas for Independence Day!
July 4th is a special day for American families and many of us will gather to enjoy good food, good laughs and perhaps even a few fireworks! What better way to enjoy your Independence Day than by having your friends and family over for a pool party? The pool is a great place for people to gather, eat, talk, and cool off on a hot July evening. We’ve assembled some of our favorite patriotic party ideas for you below to help you plan the best bash on the block!
Stars and Stripes Pool Party Decor
Texas blogger, Cassie at Hi Sugarplum put together an incredible Stars and Stripes Pool Party for her son and graciously shared her ideas. While all of her ideas (from squirt gun stations to easy finger-foods) are fabulous, we especially love her decor! What kid wouldn’t love to jump into a pool filled with stars and stripes floats under a canopy of festive paper lanterns and bunting? You can check out Cassie’s full party post here for more inspiration.
Start the party out right by having great decorations throughout your outdoor area. The pool might be the center of attention, but torches, streamers, and balloons can also accentuate it. No party is complete without a few decorations, so go all out and celebrate the birth of our nation by having a spectacular party.
Fun Favors to Keep the Party Going
Keep your party going with some fun and unique party favors, like these by Quite the Occasion Events featured on Hostess with the Mostess. They offered packets of sparklers with festive wrapping, party crackers with fun prizes inside, and of course lots of candy and cold beverages! We love the custom designed packaging for that extra special touch.
Lots of Festive Food
Splashing around in the Texas heat is sure to work up some serious appetites. Be prepared with some festive summer treats. We liked this collection of 4th of July Recipes at Frugal Coupon Living. There’s something to tempt everyone here, from frozen deserts to red, white and blue cocktails. Patriotic dishes are always a hit in Texas- at any time of year!
Have you considered what type of entertainment you might have at your party? Sure the pool will be used, but what about some specific water sports-perhaps water volleyball or basketball? Maybe a good game of chicken is what the family needs? When the whole crew is together, be sure to utilize your pool in the best way possible.
Finally, be sure to take a few moments and reflect on this special time. Remember the men and women that have given their lives for our country and for our freedom, and celebrate their efforts!
