How To Host a 4th of July Pool Party
Don't overlook the invitations.
Since summer schedules can be a little hectic, make sure to ask your guests to RSVP so you can plan accordingly. Request on the invite that guests bring their own towels (but be sure to have a few ready just in case anyone forgets). That way, you won't have to spend hours fluffing and folding post-party!
Serve a twist on summer eats.
Bring the fun with twist on classic summer favorites. Instead of everyday burgers and corn on the cob try these! Spice things up with a make-your-own slider bar with different types of mini burgers. For a new take on fresh corn, try Mexican style elotes dressed with mayo, lime juice, spices, and a sprinkling of cotija cheese. We also love the idea of serving a fresh watermelon granita instead of just regular old fruit slices.
It wouldn't be the Fourth without frozen treats! Set up an ice cream sundae bar with an assortment of toppings and let guests build their own. Or, make an assortment of lemonade ice pops for the littles and boozy champagne pops for the adults. Also make sure there are plently of cold beverages available, as well as non-breakable drinkware. Glass is a definite NO when serving poolside.
Bring on the fun.
Go all out and start the fun both in and out of the water! Our giant Poolside Flamingo Float is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser and fun for guests of all ages. For the littles, this adorable Navy Stripe Child's Lounger Set adds a patriotic touch. Then, gather everyone around that yard for an afternoon of fun and games with our Beach Day Ring Toss & Ball set.
