Plan Your Next Pool Party like a Pro

Posted on 04/14/14 in Summer Products
Pool PartyPulling off an unparalleled pool party takes proper planning. Being a great host comes down to anticipating the needs of the party goers and setting the right tone. Here are five tips that show how it's done!

1. Pick a Funky Theme

This is the place to start, before invitations go out and a menu is selected. Cruise Ship, Beach Club or Color Theme ("White Party" is awesome in summer). Once you have your theme, guests have a better idea of how to dress and what to expect. A great theme unifies the event and the guests. It promotes the conjuring of images and party anticipation. This is how you set them up for surprise...

2. Use Clever Props

A surefire way to get people involved is to make fun props available. Personalized items, like beach balls, sunglasses and towels are sure to delight your guests. Provided your pool party heads into the evening, you can turn it into a hip nightclub using glow in the dark products. Such as glow in the dark mugs, necklaces, beach balls and glow sticks.

3. Employ Elements of Surprise!

All parties should contain elements of surprise. Not just Surprise Parties! As the party planner, you have the honor of creating the sequence and introducing surprises. Excite your White Party guests with a flowing white chocolate fountain, with marshmallows for dipping, of course.

4. Serve Cool Drinks

Number one pool party rule - no glassware. While it's an obvious necessity, it's also a great excuse to provide drinks in stunning fashion. Whether its tumblers, sports bottles or cocktail drinkware, match your party theme colors and they'll be everywhere you look. Daiquiri, martini, rocks and shot glasses are available in sturdy non-glass varieties that look great. Best of all, you can personalize these items. Imprint them with your party's core message and guests will keep them as memorabilia!

5. Maximize your M&M

Not the branded little chocolates, though they're great too. The M&M that puts every party over the top - Menu & Music. Your menu should complement your party theme and fit the crowd. If it's high brow, think about cool finger foods - such as fine cheeses, crudités and sushi. If you're keeping it loose, barbecue is classic. When it comes to music, match the party sequence. Light jazz and cool reggae help people settle in and mingle when the party starts. Midway through, bring up the energy, whether you break out the rock, rap, dance or whatever suits your audience best. What matters most, is that once the party is cooking, you're laying down beats that fuel a funky dance party.

Follow these simple tips and your next pool party will be epic!
