Everything is sure to go swimmingly if you have these 5 pool party must-haves.

Pool Party Guide

1. Plenty of Pool Floats

Try not just 1, but say, 5 pool floats, with some inflatable beach balls on the side. The more the merrier. Pick bright and over-sized floaties like flamingos, swans and donuts. Add mini donut-shaped drink holder floaties so guests can sip and sunbathe at the same time.

2. A Speaker for Summer Tunes

Keep the party poppin’ with upbeat music. Go the extra mile by purchasing a waterproof speaker. That way, you can just toss it in the pool and enjoy the jams while floating.

3. Water Fights 

Got a competitive bunch? Plan a chicken fight competition in the pool (get the etiquette from the video below), a water balloon fight on your grass or a water gun fight in the pool. Guests are sure to ask when you’re hosting the next summer bash — especially the guests who want a rematch. Best two out of three wins!
