Hosting a Patriotic Pool Party | Sunshine Fun

Independence Day is quickly approaching, and your backyard is the perfect location for a Fourth of July pool party your family and friends will not soon forget. Keep these simple party tips in mind when planning to decrease the stress and increase the fun this holiday weekend.

DIY Decorating

Skip the crowded store and increased expense of heading out to buy party decorations, you probably have everything you need in your own backyard. Keep bugs away and guests protected from the sun by placing a container by the entrance with sunscreen and bug spray that can be grabbed and applied as needed. Keep water, sand and grass outside by having beach towels available in a basket outside your door.

Those inexpensive kiddie pools are a unique and fun cooler for beverages, while sand pails and frisbees are great for chips, crackers, salads, and fresh fruit. Finally make recycling fun by placing glow-in-the-dark sticks in empty water or soda plastic bottles to create colorful illumination after dark.

Food, Music and Toys

Keep the menu delicious and easy with an assortment of appetizers and finger foods. Veggie trays, finger sandwiches, chips and dip or salsa, and red, white and blue fruit kabobs are filling and easy to grab. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough tables, inflatable rafts,  lawn chairs, and beach towels  add a festive feel and provide guests with comfortable places to sit and eat.   

Music apps such as Apple Music, Pandora and Spotify provide pre-made playlists, as well as the opportunity to create personal ones with your favorite songs. Grab a couple bluetooth speakers and place around your pool area for background music to keep the party going.

Have water toys such as rings, inflatables, google, snorkels and noodles by the pool and easy to grab on the way in. Finally, sit back and have fun with family and friends.
