It’s pool party season, which means it’s time to break out the pool floaties and host an epic backyard gathering! From birthday parties to casual barbecues with friends, having a pool party is always exciting.
What really makes a pool party really make a splash is when you DIY your own flair into the event. If you’re unsure where to start on decorating your backyard pool, here are some excellent ideas:
When decorating your poolside for a party, don’t leave it untouched with only pool noodles and beach balls. Consider adding some fun decorations and treats, and just a splash of bright colored accents. One great way to do this is with a flower-themed party.
Floating flowers are inexpensive, yet stunning décor for your pool. Flowers give an ethereal aesthetic appeal to any space, and floating pool flowers look elegant and fresh. You can opt for artificial or fresh flowers arranged in a floatable wreath.
Don’t forget to complete the flower-themed pool party allure with a floral invitation. You can show off your crafty ways with handmade invitations, or just use an online template from somewhere like Canva. Use bright colors that match your flowers, and add some gold or silver for some extra sparkle.
Pink Flamingo Party
Get your guests flapping with a fun flamingo party! To make a fabulous splash bash, decorate with artificial flamingos around the yard. Check out Etsy and Pinterest for some inspiration for cute centerpieces and more. Also, don’t forget the cute flamingo partyware!
Obviously, the best part of any pool party is actually swimming in the pool. Luckily, pink flamingo pool floats are very popular right now, so you can find something to rest inside the pool or even off to the side until swimmers are ready. They even make tiny flamingo floaties that can hold your refreshing summer cocktails!
Evening Party Ideas
If you plan to party into the evening, you’ll want to decorate accordingly. A great and inexpensive way to do this is with glow sticks! You can add glow sticks to your pool, make balloon pool lanterns with glow sticks inside, or even add the glow sticks to bottles and decorate for fun, fluorescent centerpieces!
All you need for invitations and partyware are some fluorescent colors or clear partyware with a bit of glow-in-the-dark paint. This fun theme will let you hang out poolside under the stars. Don’t forget to crank up the music with a custom playlist so you can keep the party going all night long.
Whether you float with pink flamingos or dive deep with flower power, these three pool party themes will surely liven up your hot summer days! Don’t forget to hydrate and apply sunscreen, then enjoy your day of sitting poolside, near your custom inground pool, with your besties.
