Both kids and grown-ups love splashing. A swimming pool would therefore be an ideal place to host a birthday party in the summer.
Once you have arranged a swimming pool (be it in your home or a rented one), the entire party plan has to be chalked according to the theme.
The theme color for a pool party could be none other than blue and white. Decorate the pool with balloons and streamers of that color, with touches of green here and there. The pool would look more inviting with inflated beach balls and floaters in it. Fabric with fish or waves printed on them can make good table cloths.
Your invitation cards would look interesting with waves or bubbles drawn on them. The invitations can even go in deflated beach balls. Do not forget to mention in the card that it's actually a pool party and request the guests to bring their own swimming trunks along.
It would be better to keep provisions for some extra trunks in case some guest forgets theirs.
Since it's a swimming party, keep the food light. Pop corns, chips, fresh fruits, cupcakes, and mint or soda drinks would be light yet appetizing for the swimmers.
A birthday pool party would get all the more exciting with games to play in the pool itself. Throwing ball games and hooplas in the water will make the party real fun.
Nothing can be more welcoming than a bonfire after the guests leave the pool. You can arrange chairs round the fire and arrange games while they lounge around in the warmth.
If you are thinking of a dance or two, why not play tropical tunes and some typical beach music?
Select the party favors such that they would remind the guests of the party. The kids would love to have little spades with their individual names scribbled. The sunglasses they wear in water can also go as favors.
A birthday pool party is always exciting, so go for it if you want to make the birthday extra special.
