Pool Party Essentials plus Flamingo Pool Float Giveaway

image
This weekend the weather was beautiful and we hit our first 80 degree day yesterday. Since Memorial day is in a few weeks I figured I would compose a list of pool party essentials.

Keep guest entertained by renting a projector and showing a movie at night…

I think it’s a cute idea to use sand buckets or small baskets as favor bags. For kids you can include water guns, outdoor sidewalk chalk, bubbles, bug repellent, sunscreen etc and for adults you can have mini alcohol bottles, beach towels and sunglasses. Give their favors to them upon arrival so they can use the items at the party…

The music has to be a good mix of upbeat and party classics so spend time creating a playlist that doesn’t repeat for hours and save your favorite streaming stations…

I think the perfect pool party should have temperatures in the 90s. The reason I like it hot is because nights at 80 degrees are my absolute favorite. Just ensure you have a fire pit if it drops to the 70s…

image

Even if your pool is smaller, a giant float is dramatic and pretty…

image

image

Have pool toys and a number of beach balls littered in the lawn for a festive look…

image

image

I think a fabulous kimono sheer coverup has to be on hand…

image

Every outdoor space needs string lights or lanterns..

image

image

image
Have floaties for your drinks, festive straws and drink stirrers, & dispensers of a siganture drink so you don’t have to play bartender the entire time…

image

image

You can always use children’s pools filled with ice to keep beer, wine cooler bottles, soda and water cold…
