Where’s the pool party at? Oh, that’d be your place. With fruity cocktails, festive floats, and creative pool party ideas for bright, colorful decor, you’ll have the kind of get-together people rave about (and #TBT) for years afterward. Trust.
1. Boho Tablescape
Set a long, low table and bring rugs outsidefor a super-relaxed, family-style meal. The more mud cloth and floor pillows, the better.
2. Set Up An Ice Cream Bar
Frozen desserts are a must. This DIY ice cream bar is the easy way to serve a crowd — plus, it’s just fun.
3. Come Up With a Theme
Give your pool party a dress code and then decorate for the theme accordingly. Some ideas include tropical or all-white for a classic, dressier pool party. Or you could get weird and choose a TV show as a jumping-off point or something oxymoronic, like summer goth and let your guests get creative.
4. Put Out Some Punch
Fruit punch screams summer pool party. Serve it up in a bronze bowl and ladle, and it’ll look even more refreshing.
5. Pool Balloons
Need a cheap and easy decor idea? These pool balloons might just be cuter than flamingo floats.
6. Dress Up Your Bar Cart
Keep the drinks flowing by setting up your bar cart outdoors. To make it extra summery, top it with a variety of palm leaves and tropical flowers.
7. Get Your Pets Involved
These DIY pool-float dog costumes will get all the likes. And you can reuse them for Halloween!
8. Lay Out Some Games
Put out a deck of cards for any guests who’d rather stay on land. You could also put out some less conventional card games, like tarot cards and bring in a fortune teller to entertain guests.
9. Sunscreen Station
A sunscreen station is an ingenious way to entice a large group of guests to re-apply — especially when you’ve got kids running around. Add some hydrating mists, and everyone will love you forever.
10. Add Plush Seating
The more colorful your party is, the better. Set up bright and patterned pillows and blankets on the deck for a poolside-picnic effect and for extra lounging space.
