Let’s Start The Pool Party
The hot Texas weather is right around the corner. It will be here before you know it. Are you starting to plan a backyard pool party? Why not start now and make it the best it can be with family and friends leaving with memories never to be forgotten.
Whether you want to have a casual get-together or a fabulous summer shindig, poolside is always in style.
Here are a few tips to make your pool party the absolute best:
- Save the time and hassle of print invitations by opting for an electronic version. Evite is a great place to start. Choose from multiple layouts and personalize it. You can also track RSVPs with this tool.
- Opt for finger food. Serve chips and dip, a veggie platter, egg rolls…that sort of thing. Depending on the time of day, you might be able to get away with serving just snack food. If not and you love to cook, plan the complete dinner menu now and if you have an outdoor kitchen, voila, you are on your way. If you have time and want to have an outdoor kitchen built, contact Precision Pools & Spas.
- Don’t forget the refreshments. If it’s an adult party and you offer alcoholic beverages, be sure to have non-alcoholic drinks on hand to accommodate non-drinkers and the young ones if they will be attending the party.
- Invest in a waterproof camera. You can find these for about $10 in most stores. You don’t want to risk dropping your expensive Nikon in the pool, do you? But, if you have a cell phone, keep it in a safe place so you can grab it for a quick pic and quickly put it back into a safe place.
Set the Theme
- Plan your theme. Themed paper goods are always a hit. Most dollar stores offer some sort of low-cost sets. You can also visit Amazon to get all kinds of ideas and to purchase items as well.
Protection From The Sun and Bugs
- Don’t forget the sunscreen. If the party starts during daylight hours, you should have some on hand. The fun stops when someone gets burned. If the party is at night and you have not done the necessary pest control ahead of time, make sure you have bug spray on hand as well.
