Six Simple Steps for the Perfect Pool Party

· · · Comments

Ready or not, summer season is finally in swing and it’s here to stay—at least for the next few weeks—so we might as well enjoy it! And what better way to do this than by throwing a killer pool party? Here are a few tips to get you on the right track towards some unforgettable fun in the sun:

 

  1. Get the invite right. Never underestimate the impact that an invitation can make! It’s the first thing your guests will see and you want to be able to entice them from the get-go. That said, use a beach ball to get the ball rolling on all the excitement that’s to be had!

  1. Serve the right snacks. In any party, menu selection is critical. You don’t want to serve anything too heavy since most of the time will be spent frolicking in the water. Finger foods such as cheese sticks, french fries, sliders, tacos, pretzel sticks would be an ideal choice.

  1. Get those sunblock and tanning essentials ready. Make the most of the glorious summer days, but be smart and stay protected while you’re at it. Load up on sunblock with the highest SPF that you can find to ensure you don’t burn and that you keep harmful UV rays at bay. If you enjoy tanning, be sure to purchase a credible brand that’ll keep your skin safe whilst helping you attain that sun-kissed glow.
