Pool party ideas are great for celebrating any occasion such as birthday, or any other casual gathering. Some great ideas include the Luau party and the beach party.
Pool parties can be cool and help you stay cool, but because they aren’t done a lot, they can seem a little plain. You have a pool, some food and music in the background, and call it a party. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can add a theme to up the coolness of the pool party and entertain your guests.
While not always necessary, it helps to have a central theme or concept around which to plan for a party’s decor, food and games. Some of the most popular children’s pool-party themes include a beach or ocean theme, tropical luau theme and water-animal theme centred on fish or such sea creatures as an octopus, shark or whale. Once you’ve decided on a theme, purchase party decorations and tableware related to the theme online or at party-supply stores and you will have made serious headway in preparing for a great pool party.
You can throw a Luau by the pool. Find a wave pool, and you can pretend you’re on the edge of the ocean. You can pick up items for luaus such as grass skirts and coconut drink cups at party stores. Tiki torches can be purchased at most stores and garden centres; place them around the water to reflect light. Build a fire in a fire pit for ambiance. For food, serve pork for a realistic feel, and if you know someone that knows how, roast a whole pig. Other traditional luau foods such as poi are a nice touch as well. For entertainment, hire a hula dancer to perform or teach guests how to do the dance.
