The Fourth of July is right around the corner – are you prepared for a patriotic pool party? Before the party starts, ensure your pool is cleaned and chemically balanced for your guests. Better yet, schedule a visit from the pool maintenance experts at Speck USA. We’ll take care of the cleaning while you plan the rest of the party. On that note, here are our top ideas for your Fourth of July pool party.
Fourth of July Food and Drinks
You can never go wrong with American staples like hotdogs and apple pie, but take it up a notch by using Fourth of July-themed food labels like these:
- Firecracker fondue
- Patriotic popcorn
- Sparkler spare ribs
- Uncle Sam’s sodas
- Flag fruit tray
- Independence ice cream floats
- Revolutionary Rice Krispy treats
- Liberty lemonade
You can display your culinary creations easily without setting up extra tables when you have a poolside bar or swim-up bar.
Make sure those delicious foods and beverages are served in plastic or paper containers – because broken glass will surely bring a speedy end to your party. Additionally, be careful not to let dairy-based dips sit in the sun for too long. Ideally, you can keep those dishes chilled in your outdoor kitchen refrigerator.
Fourth of July Decor
Toss some red, white, and blue balloons in your pool for an inexpensive way to jazz things up. Another idea is to use a large cardboard star stencil and spray paint to create red, white, and blue stars on your lawn. Use mason jars, daisies, and carnations to make patriotic flower arrangements and give your party a classy vibe.
Pool Party Entertainment
Your attendees who are young or young at heart will love getting competitive in a splashing contest. Create number cards for the judges, get gold medals from the dollar store, and make some waves. Here are some splash-tastic category ideas for your contest:
- Biggest splash
- Smallest splash
- Best dive
- Most creative
- Best Statue of Liberty pose
Keep in mind that not all your guests will want to get wet in the pool. Set up outdoor furniture in a shaded area like your concrete patio. Keep the music and refreshments flowing so everyone can have fun, whether in or out of the water.
Set up a place for the kids to get creative and make patriotic crafts. Provide blank cards so they can write letters to deployed soldiers. Put out sugar cookies, icing, and red, white, and blue sprinkles so they can decorate their own cookies. The children will be thrilled, and their parents will be happy they are entertained.
