1 |  Have snacks ready

Finger food is the most ideal to serve in parties like this, you don’t want your guests to feel bloated either before or after they swim. We also recommend sliced fruits!

2 | Provide tissues and napkins

The last thing you want is a greasy pool with oil from chips floating around. Get a lot of paper towels and face towels on stand-by where people can wipe their greasy hands.

3 | Drinkable water is a must

Prepare a ton of water for drinking as staying outdoors will naturally dehydrate you with this heat. Also provide juices and shakes!

4 | Provide towels

If you’re hosting, provide your guests with towels after they get out of the pool If you don’t have enough, put in your invite for guests to bring their own!

5 | Have a timer ready

The kids are bound to want to swim the moment they can. If you’re serving food before they take a dip, have a timer ready to make kids wait before they swim. Prepare some activities while they’re waiting so 10 minutes won’t seem too long!

6 | Have floaters ready

Don’t expect everyone knows how to swim, especially the little ones! Have extra floaters ready incase they forget to bring theirs!

7 | Get the music ready

Play some up-tune beats and happy tunes while hosting your party! Music really sets the ambiance in parties.
