Did you know that summer is the ideal time to stay fit? Apart from staying active and eating better, the summer season can boost your immunity and can improve your sleep at night.
So, you want to know the best way to get health benefits in the season of sunshine? The answer is correct in the backyard of your home – the swimming pool.
But, how do you find the motivation to make splashes on a hot summers’ day? The answer is a swimming pool party.
A swimming pool party is a perfect way to have fun and give your body the reasons to stay fit and healthy. Moreover, summer pool parties are the best time of the year to spend with your family and friends.
So, if you are looking for ways to stay fit this summer, planning a memorable pool party is what you need.
Here you’ll find everything you need to plan a happening pool party and a chance to load up on those Vitamin D’s that you need every day.
Let’s make a splash:
Send A Party Invitation
Before you begin, close your eyes and take some time to imagine how your dream pool party should look like. What do you see? Which snacks and food would you like to serve to your guests? Is there a theme in your mind?
So, if you plan to throw a memorable party, you should consider a theme that both kids and adults would love to attend. For instance, if you envision yourself turning your background into a lush tropical paradise, plan your party around a luau theme. Everyone loves nature and wants to spend their time in the glory of lush green plants.
Once you have selected a theme for the party, the planning becomes a whole lot easier. And this is where invitations play a significant role. Additionally, a theme makes it easy for you to find the most suitable format for your pool party invitation. Make sure it aligns with the idea of your pool party theme. Make sure the invitations look vibrant and attractive. Also, don’t forget to mention the items that every guest should bring (like a towel and swimsuit).
In this way, the guests will arrive fully prepared and ready to enjoy the pool party.
Plan Exciting Pool Party Games
With delicious food, hip music, and loving friends, your party is destined to be one of the most fabulous pool parties of all time. But, to take things to the next level, make sure you have plenty of space and game ideas for your friends and family to enjoy. With the evolution of pool construction, they are designed to take maximum advantage of the available space. As a result, you get a fantastic opportunity to play fun pool party games with the guests.
However, make sure you don’t over-complicate things and burden the games with a massive list of rules. Please keep it simple, and you are all good. For instance, if you favor keeping things simple, you can go with water balloon fights.
Just make sure that your guests are comfortable with playing the games you have planned for the party. If there is a lot of running and splashing included, keep reminding them to be careful, so they don’t slip on the water lying around the pool.
Have a Healthy Range of Snacks
A good balance between junk food and healthy food can play an essential role in making your guests happy. Foods or snacks that include too much salt can cause bloating, which does not feel excellent when you wear a bathing suit. However, that doesn’t mean chucking all the salty snacks from the table is a good idea because salty treats also help replenish the electrolytes in your body.
Therefore, if you give your guests an option of balanced and healthy snacks like fresh fruits, they go perfectly with the ideal pool party snacks. And if you want to be known as the ultimate pool party host, buy a variety of fruits and prepare a delicious fruit salad. If you are running low on time and don’t like the process of cutting fruits, there are a lot of pre-cut fruit packaging available, especially for these kinds of occasions.
For salty treats, you are always spoiled for choice. You can choose from potato chips, pretzels, and corn chips. Also, dips like guacamole, salsa, and hummus are healthy and delicious.
Once you’ve covered all the basic ground, you can find other varieties of snacks and drinks you think your guests would enjoy. The more options you have, the better it is!
Lighten-Up the Mood With a Party Playlist
Summertime and pool parties are all about having a good time. For this reason, your party needs a long playlist full of hits and trending music.
Music streaming services can quickly solve this problem for you. On the other hand, if you want to play your favorite hits, take some time and create a party playlist of your favorite songs.
If you haven’t subscribed to a music streaming service, you can claim a free trial right before the party. This will keep the music playing without your guests listening to annoying advertisements after every few songs.
And as you know, every party needs a loud music system, so it’s always worth investing in a high-quality music system (which you can always enjoy even after a party). However, make sure that you put them away from the pool area. On the other hand, if you need a music player near the pool area, investing in a waterproof Bluetooth speaker can solve your problem.
Add Comfortable Lounge Chairs Near the Pool Area
Even though it is called a pool party, many people avoid dipping into the swimming pools. If you have a guest who wants to work on their tan and soak in some Vitamin D, make sure you have comfortable lounge chairs that recline in various positions.
Also, your guests will ultimately need some rest after spending time in the pool and will need to take a break. Plus, to make it more comfortable for your guests, you can add some umbrellas that can give them the benefit of enjoying the shade on a hot summer day.
Now you know all the best tips for planning a fantastic summer pool party, it’s time to make the list of your guests and, finally, work on those invitations. Your friends will love them, and when they join the party, seeing your preparations will get them fired up and excited.
