Pool or Spa Party!

Wanting to have a pool or spa party but aren’t sure where to start? We have just the tips for you! We have listed a few creative ideas to throw the best party of the summer.

  • Hawaiian Luau. Bring the ‘Aloha’ to your backyard! Encourage guests to wear bright, colorful shirt. Make or buy some leis for all of your guests. Decorate with tropical flowers, bamboo embellishments, and tiki torches. Cook up some pineapple chicken or ham and have plenty of fruit and vegetables. If you’re feeling really adventurous, cook up a pig!
  • Beach Party. Have guests wear their flip flops and swimsuit for this party! If you have a sandbox, get the family together and build a sand castle for decoration. Put seashells and fish nets on tables and cover chairs with beach towels. Use plastic pails, shovels, and even Frisbees to serve snacks and drinks in. Throw some toy sailboats in the pool and cook up the types of food that you would find on a classic boardwalk such as hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries, and snow cones!
  • Movie Night. Create the perfect ‘float-in’ movie. Grab inflatable lounge chairs and move your big screen outdoors. Set up a ‘concession stand’ with candy, soda, and popcorn.
  • Birthday Party. Get creative with invitations and send flip flop, fish, or beach ball shaped cut outs. Use age appropriate games such as Marco Polo for the youngsters or water volleyball for an older crowd. For boys, have a water gun battle. For girls, create a spa day. Make sure to keep the menu light with fruit, sandwiches, and juice boxes.
