How To Throw An Epic Pool Party With These 9 Things
May 5, 2016
The 30 inches of snow is officially gone and not coming back for a few more months, and pool season is ALMOST here. Don’t wait until summer to plan that epic pool party. We’ve got some ideas on how you can make it the best pool party anyone has ever seen. It’s easier than you think, and your friends will talk about it for ages. Let’s get wild and crazy!
Set The Mood - Underwater Disco Light ($25): Who says you can’t have a raging dance party in the pool? Get the party bumping with these flashy disco lights that will light up your pool like the forth of July. They’re affordable, funky, and definitely will be a hit!
Get Your Build On - Home Bar DIY: Bring the resort feel right to your back yard by constructing your own outdoor patio bar. This design is perfect for a bartender to mix up some drinks, and people can snag a seat to sip their cocktails. Don’t get stuck behind the bar — have a bartender staff it so you can get in the pool!
Ride Off Into The Sunset - Funky Unicorn ($100): The only thing more fun than floating around a pool is floating around a pool on a magical unicorn. You may want to buy a few because there will be fights over this floatie.
Get Some Grub - Walking Tacos: There’s no excuse for not eating, even if you are in the pool all day. With walking tacos, your friends can hop out, grab a bite, and get right back in. It makes for less trash and cleanup, too, and who doesn’t like a walking taco?
Time To Game - Pool Pong ($80): Don’t forgo some of the all-time classic games just because you’re in the water. Pool Pong has to be one of the greatest inventions. Unlike other pong boards made for water, it won’t deflate or pop. The best part is you can still bounce on the board into the cups — 2 cups, please.
Hydration Station - Infused Waters: Give your friends the opportunity to hydrate with something other than beer and cocktails. Alcohol dehydrates you quickly, and when you’re out in the sun all day, you can start to feel a little woozy. Add some diced fruit into some dispensers, top with spring water, and viola: you have some tasty infused waters that will be a huge hit!
Safety First - Bottle Keeper ($22): Nothing like glass in your foot to ruin a party. Keep bare feet safe and sound with the bottle keeper, an insulated, stainless steel bottle protector that will allow people to take their drinks from the bar to poolside without worrying about glass.
Refresh The Masses - Alcoholic Popsicles: Convenient mojito, anyone? Put your cocktail on a stick and get in the pool! Alcoholic popsicles have come a long way. Whether you want fresh and fruity or more sophisticated, you have a ton of options.
Light The Way - DIY Bottle Lanterns: With the party you’re throwing, there’s no doubt it will carry on well past when the sun goes down. Before the party, DIY these stylish and functional lanterns. People will love their look, they keep bugs away, and they’ll light pathways and stairs well.
