Spicy pool party outfits, fun decorations, a killer playlist; what does it take to host the perfect pool party?While cute swimwear is obviously a must, you need a couple of other things to make sure your pool party is memorable. Cute decorations, a fire playlist, and summer foods and drinks are what make a pool party — well, that and people, but you get the point.
Here’s our list of pool party must-haves if you’re looking to make sure your attendees post every second on their stories.
Trendy Swimwear for Every Body Type: Whether you're a beach babe or a poolside prince(ss), finding the perfect swimwear is essential for making a statement.
Embrace your curves with a flattering one-piece that hugs your body in all the right places, or rock a sassy bikini that shows off your confidence. Don't be afraid to experiment with vibrant colors, playful prints, or daring cutouts that add an extra oomph to your pool party look.
Stylish Cover-ups and Sarongs: Pool party outfits aren't just about what you wear in the water; they're also about how you look poolside. Enhance your swimwear with stylish cover-ups that transition from pool to beach chair effortlessly.
Opt for a flowing maxi dress that billows in the breeze or a breezy kimono that adds a touch of bohemian flair.
Accessories to Complete Your Poolside Look: No outfit is complete without the perfect accessories, and a pool party is no exception. Elevate your style with statement sunglasses that shield your eyes from the sun's rays while exuding an air of mystery.
Slip on a wide-brimmed hat to protect your face from the scorching heat and add a touch of old Hollywood glamour to your poolside persona. Remember the beach bags to stash your sunscreen, towels, and other poolside essentials. The right accessories can transform your pool party outfit from ordinary to extraordinary.
Custom Swimsuits: If you’re hosting a large-scale event and want a uniform look (AKA dress code), a custom swimsuit for your attendees might be the move. There are plenty of talented designers that create incredible poolside fits.
Once you’re all set with your spicy swimwear, you’re ready to start gathering poolside essentials to set the tone for the party. Here are some things you should consider:
Fun Pool Floats and Inflatable Toys: Who says pool floats have to be boring? Picture yourself lounging on a gigantic unicorn, riding a majestic flamingo, or chilling on a slice of pizza. Inflate those bad boys, hop on, and prepare for a day of epic poolside adventures.
Poolside Games and Entertainment: It's time to kick your poolside game up a notch with a twist on classic party games. Leave the old-fashioned Marco Polo behind and go for a round of inflatable beer pong instead.
Other popular games include volleyball, pool tennis, chicken, and poolside basketball. Honestly, all you need is good company, drinks, some food, and music, but these things give your party more variety and help it go a little longer.
When the sun is blazing, and the pool party is in full swing, there's nothing quite like indulging in refreshing drinks and snacks to beat the heat. These delightful treats will keep you hydrated and tantalize your taste buds with flavors that scream summer.
Signature Poolside Cocktails and Mocktails: Elevate your poolside experience with some signature cocktails and mocktails that are as refreshing as a dip in the pool. Shake up a classic piña colada with creamy coconut and pineapple goodness, garnished with a cute umbrella for that tropical vibe.
If you're in the mood for something non-alcoholic, create a mocktail like a sparkling berry spritzer with fresh berries, sparkling water, and a splash of citrus. These delicious concoctions will quench your thirst and add a touch of flair to your poolside gathering.
Easy-to-Make Snacks for Poolside Munching: Keep the hunger pangs at bay with easy-to-make snacks that won't keep you away from the pool for too long. Prepare a refreshing fruit salad with a medley of seasonal fruits like watermelon, strawberries, and grapes.
For a savory option, whip up some crispy veggie sticks with a tangy yogurt dip or prepare a platter of bruschetta with ripe tomatoes, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. These mouthwatering snacks may not have the boys drooling as much as your pool party outfits, but they’ll definitely give everyone the energy to keep the party going.
Fruit Infusions and Hydrating Beverages: Stay hydrated with fruit-infused waters and other refreshing beverages that will cool you down from the inside out. Slice up some citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges, and add them to a pitcher of ice-cold water for a zesty and rejuvenating drink. You can also brew some iced herbal tea with flavors like mint, hibiscus, or chamomile for a soothing and hydrating option.
Frozen Treats for a Sweet Cooling Sensation: No poolside party is complete without a frozen treat to combat the heat. Prepare some homemade popsicles using fresh fruit juices or yogurt blended with your favorite berries.
You can also create a DIY sundae bar with a variety of ice cream flavors, toppings like crushed cookies, sprinkles, and sauces for a customizable sweet treat experience.
If you’re ballin’, catering is also an option, fyi.
