How To Throw The Best Ever Christmas Swimming Pool Party

Christmas Around The Family Swimming Pool

Christmas is nearly here and surely there’s no better way than to celebrate, than hosting a pool party. They say a pool party is all about entertainment, so here at Factory Pools Perth we’ve come up with some tips to ensure your pool party goes swimmingly…

  • 1.Make it decorative

The way you decorate your outside area will set the mood and vibe for your whole party. You want to make it a memorable event, so make it magical. Hang Christmas lights around your pool or on your fence. Decorate any outside shrubbery with stars, and baubles and get the children involved – they can make some cut-out snowflakes.

Don’t forget your ‘Santa stop here’ sign by your pool. Why not get some water guns to make it exciting for the younger generation? If you’re feeling really adventurous you can also add pool dye to your water to make it truly memorable.

  • 2.Get the right vibe

Great music will set the mood for your party. Floating Bluetooth speakers or waterproof speakers are both great options for Christmas pool parties. Select some Michael Bublé, carols or stick to the classics. Whatever music you choose, remember that sound waves move slower over water meaning the sound will be slightly amplified or louder.

  • 3.Lounge around on inflatables

Don’t even think about having a Christmas pool party without inflatables. From pool noodles, to loungers with cup holders to ride on inflatable dolphins, there are some great options out there to suit everyone. As well as providing endless hours of fun, inflatables can serve practical purposes too. Have you ever heard of floating eskies? It’s a pretty nifty idea to keep all your drinks icy cold.

  • 4.Pool Games

Organising a few pool games will certainly add to the atmosphere, so bring your guests together with some healthy competition. Popular games include Marco Polo, pool volleyball, tag, noodle jousting, pool sharks and mermaids, sponge tossing or even an underwater treasure hunt.

‘Watermelon Push’ is a great Aussie favourite where in teams you try to push a watermelon from one end of the pool to another. Of course, no Christmas party would be complete without a visit from Santa or even an exchange of gifts with a secret Santa set up.

  • 5.Get Grilling

Finally, regardless of the occasion, a pool party is incomplete without a barbeque to go with it. Staple party food such as burgers, chicken skewers and hot dogs with plenty of salad, always goes down well. Put some homemade, fruity icy poles in the freezer in preparation for your pool party, create an ice-cream station or put donuts on a string.

Of course, don’t forget the drinks. A punch bowl is a great addition and colour themed cocktails will be a great talking point and you can make fruit mocktails for kids. Don’t forget water, as your guests will be need to keep hydrated.
