Pool parties can be fun, but slightly overwhelming because there are so many details involved. You have to ensure that everything goes smoothly. In fact, there are items you would probably not even think of, until your party is on and you suddenly need them. So here are a few key things you must put into consideration when throwing a pool party.

Keep a first aid box handy

This is one of the things that many people forget when organising a pool party. Keep one around for those just-in-case moments.

Don’t overdo the alcohol

A party is incomplete without alcohol. But you must take caution and go easy on the alcohol to prevent any major accidents or dehydration.

Serve finger foods

There is no need to go heavy on foods. Just provide light snacks and finger foods to keep people satiated and happy. It is a pool party!

Don’t swim immediately after eating

Do not swim immediately after eating. But sometimes, it can be really hard to stay out of the pool when everyone is out there having fun. So try to avoid the pool for at least ten minutes, just so your stomach can settle a bit.

Make sure the pool is in good condition

On the morning of the party, check the pool to get rid of excess debris. Also, take a look around the pool for possible trip hazards.

Get your games ready

Plan some fun pool party games to keep your guest involved during your get-together. Some fun pool party games are treasure hunt and volleyball. It is also a good idea to have some fun pool accessories, such as floats, rings, noodles and beach balls.

Do not forget music

One of the best ways to create a fun and festive atmosphere at a pool party (or any party) is to add music. Create a beachy playlist of the latest and trending songs. Also, make sure the music isn’t too loud.
