6 Essentials for the Perfect Pool Party

School’s out and the summer is heating up. What better way to kick off the sunny season than getting your BFFs together for a poolside party? Be the queen of throwing the perfect pool party by picking up a few of these essentials.

1. Rock The Perfect Swimsuit

You want to look and feel good hosting your fab pool party. That starts with the perfect swimsuit. Whether it’s a cute bikini with pretty prints and or chic color-blocked one piece, make sure to rock that perfect poolside look so you’ll feel great at your party.

2. Blast Beach Tunes with Booming Speakers

A party always needs some good beach tunes on blast. Opt for water-proof speakers to keep your playlist protected from sun and splashing. Make sure to get some catchy playlists ready before your friends arrive to keep the party going all day (and night) long.

3. Lounge in Style with a Giant Pool Float

A pool party just wouldn’t feel the same without a giant pool float to fit you and your friends. Of course, a fabulous flamingo makes for the perfect Insta-worthy floaty. A luxe pink gold one is too cute to pass up!

4. Don’t Forget the Party Favors!

Funky sunglasses make a great party favor and won’t break the bank. Go to a local party store or order online to get a good discount on fun, funky shades for the pool party. You can go with retro neon glasses, aviators, shutter style, or colorful round frames. You could also throw in other party favor ideas like cute beach towels or water bottles.

5. Cool Down with Frozen Treats

On a hot summer’s day, ice cold popsicles and frozen treats will keep guests feeling refreshed. You can find lots of homemade recipes made with watermelon, kiwi, or even strawberry lemonade.

6. Light Up the Night with an Underwater Disco Light

The fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. Keep the party going with a colorful underwater disco light, and crank up the party playlist!
