Today’s pool owners are taking full advantage of their investment by creating a new part of their lifestyle around the pool. Below are some ideas for pool parties you can host with a little preparation and planning.
April – Garden Pool Party
Remember Ricky Nelson’s “Garden Party” ? Create your own Garden Party for the Millennium. Guests arrive with their favorite gardening secrets or plants … perhaps add a secret surprise gift exchange (small garden tools?)… Everyone knows that a garden needs plenty of water, so get in the pool . . . relax, enjoy and soak in the pleasure your Garden Pool Party.
May – May Showers
A bridal shower? A baby shower? A graduation shower? Your pool will make the “picture perfect” spot for the bride-to-be, an expectant couple or a student to capture special memories of a most memorable time in their lives. Hosted on your own or with a group of friends, you and your guests will remember this once-in-a-lifetime celebration. And there’s no rain in the forecast — Remember it’s “April showers” that bring “May flowers”!!
September – Back to School Splash
With Labor Day comes the official end of Summer. And, the back to school blahs take over for most students. What a great time to EXTEND THE POOL SEASON by inviting classmates (and parents/teachers if desired) to get together and renew friendships and make new ones. Keep cool by the pool and add your own theme — perhaps with a “wacky hat contest” with plenty of games, activities and fun for all!
October – Tricks and Treats by the Pool
Get spooked in the coolest way by hosting the young or the young at heart at your backyard pool. Halloween decorations are a must and with the “natural night light”, let your ghostly imagination take over. Create your own unique costume themes (bathing suits included) and refreshments to brew up a magical party that guests will be screaming about!
November – Turkey Barbeque
Start a new family tradition with a turkey barbeque by the pool. Everyone brings their favorite Thanksgiving dish and whether or not the turkey is actually “cooked on the open fire” or “in the kitchen oven”, everyone can enjoy the traditional day of thanks in a non-traditional but most memorable way by your pool. Last one in the pool is a real turkey!
