The summer time is the perfect time of year to plan a fun pool party. What’s really great about a pool party is that you don’t need to have a theme. However you can do a nice mix of decorations for the party. Whether you are throwing an adult pool party, teen pool party, or a kiddie pool party, the ideas listed below can work for everyone.
One thing that goes over well with everyone, is turning the tables into little luau tables. You can add skirts around the edges of the tables. Visit your local party store to pick up the grass skirt decorations. You can use tape to secure the skirts to the edges of the tables. This looks great for any table and really adds something special to the decor. It’s really easy to do, and set up, so be creative with how you set things up.
Have you ever seen those large, colorful hanging lanterns. They are great for hanging up during the summer pool party. You can string them up around the table. Set up a close line, and then use hooks to hang up the lanterns. The lanterns are usually made out of paper and are easy to put up. If you want them to light up at night, you can take those glow necklaces, and hang them over the lanterns. Just tie them from the top and let them drape down the side.
Beach balls everywhere
You can also fill up a bunch of beach balls and toss them into the pool. To make it look really interesting use small balloons and large balloons, and just toss them in the water. Kids and adults will really love the way this looks for the pool party.
Light up the tables
You can count on the fact that people are still going to be in the pool when it starts to get dark. This means that you have to have enough lighting in the yard, so people can still see when it gets dark. Take the time to already have lanterns set up on each of the tables. You can also put some hanging lanterns around the pool. You can find these types of lanterns in the camping section at your local Walmart store. It is also possible to purchase them online from Amazon.com.
The food can also be a nice part of the pool party decorations. Fresh fruit looks great on the tables around the pool. However you want to make sure that you keep the food covered and cold. You can also be creative with the plates, such as beach ball looking plates. These items are simple to find during the summer months, and inexpensive as well.
