Pool parties are one of the most exciting ways to have fun in the sun. They’re also one of the ways to socialise and strengthen the bond between you and your family and friends. Before you host one, you need to keep in mind that there are some things to list down so as to prevent certain problems from happening.
If you don’t know where to start, you’re lucky to have stumbled upon this article. Below are the three Gs of organising a pool party (or any other party for that matter). So prepare your swimming pool in Perth and have some fun.
Don’t just randomly call friends. Otherwise, you’ll end up entertaining guests you don’t want to entertain in the first place. At least two weeks before the date, send out invites so that they can already decide and mark their calendars. Get in touch with people you actually want to socialise with. Anticipate that some of them will bring their plus one, so you need to be prepared as far as logistics is concerned.
This is a light party, so your food should not be difficult to prepare. Go for light and tasty fares. Finger foods will fit this category. You can make tasty sandwiches, quiches, and canapés. If you want some smoky flavours, hit the barbecue. Make sure that you have dishes that suit vegetarians, kids, and guests with certain allergies. Don’t forget the punch and cocktails!
Sustain the fun with engaging games. Keep the fun in the pool with balloon toss, races, shark in the pool, ping pong and treasure hunt. Observe safety rules strictly to prevent untoward incidents, especially among kids.
These are only some of the things you need to keep in mind when planning a pool party. For more fun under the sun (or moon, in case of night swimming), set the mood with the right music!
