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!

4. Grilled Grub

It’s summer after all, so roll out your barbecue and grill up some summertime favorites — burgers, hot dogs and veggies.

5. Seasonal Sips and Sweets

Besides the obvious (plenty of water), serve some seasonal refreshers, like ice pops. Ice pops also pair well with mixed drinks, punch or lemonade. Serve them unwrapped on a tray of ice for instant enjoyment.
