How to Throw the Best Pool Party

How to Throw the Best Pool Party

It’s been a bit cooler here in Arizona this summer than it has been in previous summers. While the South has been baking in 100-degree heat, we have been sitting pretty under 90 degrees.

Just because it’s not 100 degrees doesn’t mean you can’t throw a hot pool party. You can kick off months of pool fun and relaxation. We have some great DIY pool party ideas for you to help make this summer memorable.

What Is A Great Pool Party Theme?

Many people think a great pool party starts with a great theme. There are many themes to choose from, or you could create one on your own. Your theme could be very specific to you and your family. For example, you want to throw a birthday party for your son, and he loves baseball. Choose a baseball theme. There are also party theme ideas that have stood the test of time. A luau theme is always a good choice, because who doesn’t want to go to Hawaii?

There are some trendy themes you might want to think about for your pool party. Mermaids and Aquaman are popular right now. In fact, they’re so popular there is already a lot of ready-made decorations for them.

Having a theme is great, especially if you’re planning a big party. However, you don’t have to have a theme for every get-together. Let’s face it, at a pool party, the pool can be all the theme you need!


Summer pool parties call for cute decorations. You might want to start looking on social media sites, such as Pinterest, for decorating ideas. We saw one backyard party on Pinterest that someone threw using polar bears, penguins, and iceberg decorations. She had a shaved ice machine for snowballs. What a great idea — a “cool” pool party on a hot day.

However, pool party ideas for decorations don’t have to be difficult. Since the pool is the main attraction, you can choose a few well-placed decorations to complement the pool’s beauty. For example, you could choose to decorate the tables where the food and drinks will be. Are you having a party for the Fourth of July to celebrate the United States’ birthday? You could use the red, white, and blue theme to your advantage. It’s easy to find red, white, and blue cups, napkins, silverware, and plates. You could also use stars and streamers to enhance your look. You could use an old washtub filled with red and blue drinks. You can also use a star-shaped dessert tray — and you are well on your way to pool party glory.

What to Do at a Pool Party?

In our opinion, this is one of the best parts of owning a pool. You really don’t have to come up with stuff for people to do at a backyard party. That’s because all your guests are going to be doing the same thing — swimming, lounging, and playing in the pool. Who could blame them? If you want more party ideas for activities, have some fun stuff lying around for people to pick up. We have seen a bucket of water guns and bubble wands make your party entertaining for kids and adults. Some people like to have Frisbees and soccer balls around to use as well.

No matter what you decide to do for your pool party, we’re sure it will be successful. When the pool is the star of the party, it can’t help but be a success.
