Pool parties are a staple of the summertime experience. With summer coming up soon, you’re probably itching to get your first adult pool party of the season together. To make your summer pool party kick-off extra special, consider some of these ideas to get you started.
Get Some Celebrity Inspiration
Hollywood summers are marked by flashy and expensive poolside parties. These are usually coordinated by expensive professional party planners and involve extensive preparation. But you can get some celebrity inspiration and adapt some of these ideas for your own party:
Plan an Awesome Menu
Whether you will be hiring a caterer or putting together a menu yourself, you should focus on items that are festive, seasonal, and refreshing.
Look the Part
Buy yourself a new bathing suit for your pool party and maybe even go for a new bathing suit cover, sunglasses, sunhat, and bag. If you are planning a party for your first summer kickoff, buy yourself a bathing suit that will last you throughout the season and is in keeping with the summer’s trends. If you are planning a party for an event like a birthday or Memorial Day, consider getting a fun, novelty bathing suit like an American Flag Bikini.
Do Something Outrageous!
Keep your friends talking about your party for ages by arranging something extra special. Ideas might include:
Play to Your Crowd
Are your friends more of the go with the flow type who might prefer a laid back day by the pool? Or are they the more adventurous types who want lots of activity and flash? Figure out who your audience is and plan a party that will be the most fun for them. And make it yours! Don’t focus too much on imitating celebrities or doing something in top style. Instead, make sure it’s a real adult pool party that you and your friends will remember fondly.
