If you follow Taylor Swift on Instagram, then you have surely seen her pool party pictures. She seems to have the most amazing pool parties ever! One of my favorite things about summer is going to my friends’ houses that have pools because my family doesn’t have one! In light of my pool-lessness, I decided to come up with a few ways to have a pool party…without having a pool! Sounds a bit silly, but read on to find out how!
- Location: When you are having a pool-less party, make sure you have it in a place that has a hose and electrical outlets nearby. Also, have it in a place with plenty of grass to give your feet a break!
- Pool alternative: Go to Walmart and buy 3 or 4 little kiddy pools and have those sitting out! People will love being able to dip their feet in without having to get their whole body wet. Fun sprinklers are also a must! You can also play slip and slide kickball, which is a total blast. You can also have a water balloon fight, or even just have a volleyball net set up! Give people lots of things to do.
- Food and beverage: Have lots of refreshing, juicy fruit cut up and ready to serve. People love fruit on a hot summer day! You can also get fun flavors of soda and lemonade for a nice summer beverage.
- Décor: Because you don’t have an actual pool, give your party a “pool party” feel by blowing up inflatables and using them as décor! You can also put up pool umbrellas to give your guests some shade. Use beach balls instead of volleyballs to give your party and even more “pool-ish” feel!
Just because you don’t have a pool doesn’t mean you can’t have a pool party!
