No party is complete without food. Here are some menu ideas for your party.
1- Snack bar. There is no better way to get the energy you need to swim other than from snacks! Offer guests a candy bar with water-themed snacks, such as:
2- Sliders. Sliders are ideal for a pool party, and the options are endless! You can offer hotdog sliders, hamburger sliders, sandwich sliders, tomato and mozzarella sliders, and so many more!
3- Pool water to drink! Real pool water tastes horrible, but mixing lemonade and blue Hawaiian punch creates a tasty drink. Serve with ice, cups, and striped-straws!
4- Plenty of fruit. Fruit and summer just go together. Pineapple, melons, and cold grapes will keep your guests hydrated and cool! Fruit is also perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
Consider having these games at your summer pool party for ultimate fun! Here’s a hint: stock up on pool noodles! You can do like a million things with them, including these games.
5- Pool side bowling
This works just like normal bowling, but with a fun outdoor twist!
What you’ll need:
- Create a bowling lane out of the yoga mat and the pool noodles. Lay the mat on a flat surface near the pool and line the mat with the noodles.
- Set up the bottles in the shape of normal bowling pins.
- Use the bowling ball to knock them over!
6-. Ring noodle toss
Ring noodle toss is just like normal ring toss!
What you’ll need:
- pool noodles
- Cut pool noodles into small pieces. Place them in the grass so that they are vertical.
- Create rings out of the other pool noodles by gluing the ends together
- See who has the best aim!
7- Create a lounge area! Too much swimming and sun is sure to make your guests tired. Create an outdoor lounge using an inflatable kiddie pool, pillows, and towels! This is a fun way to relax during the day.
