How to make the most amazing summertime memories around your pool
What’s better than hot summer days spent relaxing around the pool with those you care about most? There is nothing quite as fun as a pool party during the longer days of summer, warmer nights and spending time swimming in the sunshine. One of the many reasons families enjoy hanging around the pool area is because it gives you and your guests the chance to socialize, keep cool, and move your body in a relaxed and informal environment. Pool parties are usually associated with birthday celebrations, special occasions and events, but you can actually just hang around the pool and have a party just because.
Become the host of the town and the life of the party with an awesome pool party that your friends, colleagues and relatives are going to remember for a long time after they’ve departed by putting in a little effort to make your pool area that extra bit special. Make the pool area the main source of entertainment by adding entertaining gadgets
Here’s how you can make lasting memories around your pool this upcoming summer.
Clean up your pool space and keep it tidy before you start placing any decorations, appliances and entertainment tools. If you plan on taking photos; remove the pool cleaner after it cleans the pool, keep the pool cover rolled up, and remove any other objects that may obstruct your photos.
BBQ by the pool:
The best summer combo is “BBQ’s and swimming in the pool”. Send out invitations to your friends, colleagues or the family and have some food and a swim together. Make it fun by mixing up some refreshing cocktails/mocktails for your guests and juice for the little ones. Get yourself a drink caddy to ensure you’re not away from the pool for too long and you can make up drinks by the poolside without having to dry off every time your guest wants a refreshment.
Blow up pool toys:
Bring out all your pool party entertainment features to give people somewhere to lounge about comfortably while they catch up and chat with others. You can have a few different Pool Floaties, Pool Toys, Rainbow Donut, Boat Explorer or Fun Goggles (All from Intex) to decorate in and around your pool area. For entertainment value, consider having a few blow-up balls and a game such as pool volleyball and separate your guests into two groups and let them get competitive
Create a playlist:
Keep the good vibes flowing with a playlist ready to go on the day and ensure it has a selection of music that will put your guests in the mood for a party and encourage relaxation. Get some outdoor speakers for entertainment and keep the music playing without worrying about the sound being too low for everyone to enjoy outside.
Who wants to sit inside and play games when you can take the fun to the pool? It’s normal to see people that play games inside the house when it’s hot and stuffy lose interest rather quickly. You can purchase waterproof playing cards, or play your normal games that you normally would play and make it even more fun and daring.
