Make Your Pool Opening Special by Throwing a Grand Party

If you’re looking for a way to make your pool opening special, there are many ways that you can do it. You can choose a theme, set up an ice cream bar and punch, have proper decorations and even have the guests wear their swimsuits. Read on to get more ideas on how you can do that.

Choose a theme

A theme is a great way to set the tone for your pool party. It can be as simple as getting together with friends and family, or it can be more complex and ambitious, such as hosting an outdoor fashion show. The best themes will be easy for you to execute at home, in line with your budget, and in keeping with the season.

Set up an ice cream bar

When you’re throwing a grand party, it’s important to make sure that your guests have plenty of options for eating and socializing. To set up an ice cream bar, start by gathering all of the ingredients you’ll need.

  • The first thing you need is an assortment of different flavours. Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry are good choices. If there are any kids in attendance at your opening night celebration, try making some kid-friendly flavours too like peanut butter or yogurt!
  • Next up comes toppings. Try sprinkling them over each cone before adding in any ice cream itself.

Put out some punch

Choose a fun colour. Add fruit and ice cubes. You can get creative with this one, but be sure that you have plenty of ice since the punch will dilute over time. You’ll want it to stay cold for as long as possible! If you don’t have time or access to fresh fruit, try using frozen berries instead. They’ll still taste good!

Have proper decorations

Decorations can be as simple as balloons and streamers, or you can use them to enhance your theme. You could also have tablecloths that match the colour scheme of your party.

Color-coordinate your balloons with the colour scheme of your fibreglass pool perth. Get a helium tank that is large enough to fill all the balloons, but small enough to fit in your car.

Get your pets involved

If you have pets, it’s important to include them in the party. You can have a pet costume contest or even an animal parade with your guests. You can also offer prizes for the best costume and even have an animal talent show!

Lay out some games

Have a pool tournament. This can be a fun way to get your guests involved and help you learn if they like playing the games. If you want to make it more interactive, have them vote on which game they want to play next. You can even score points for each round of that game by hitting certain targets.

Add a sunscreen station

You should definitely have a sunscreen station. Make sure you have enough sunscreen for everyone, and each member of your family has their own container of sunscreen (one bottle per person).

You can also add other things like a towel station or goggles/sunglasses stand. This way, people can grab what they need without getting all over everything else in the fibreglass pool area!

Buy cute floats

When you’re selecting floats, it’s important to choose the right ones. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • They should be comfortable. If the float is too hard or uncomfortable, your guests will avoid using it and get bored quickly.
  • Don’t choose anything that’s difficult for anyone in your party to swim with—especially if there are children involved!
  • Your choice of floats should also be easy to store away after use. This way, no one has to worry about losing them or breaking them before their first use (which could happen).

Fire up the grill

Get a gas or charcoal grill. If you’re going to be grilling, make sure you have enough propane or charcoal to meet your needs. Clean the grill before using it—and don’t forget to put on the lid! Don’t forget about cleaning after use!

Plan ahead to avoid messes

To avoid any headaches, it’s important to plan ahead and prepare. Make a list of everything you need to do: game night, food and drink, decorations and other fun stuff like that.

Next, make a list of things to buy: pool toys (if there are kids at your party), swimsuits/swim caps/swim towels etcetera. Then consider renting some floats or tables if they’re not included in the rental package. Lastly, find out if there are any other vendors who might be able to offer additional services such as concessions or photo booths. Once this is done feel free to begin planning how much time each person will contribute towards making sure everything runs smoothly throughout the day.

Determine the budget

Before you start planning your pool party, it’s important to determine the budget. This will help you determine how much money you’re willing to spend on food and decorations.

The first thing to consider is: how much money do I have? If there are any upcoming expenses that might cut into my budget, then it’s best if those things are taken care of before the party begins. This way, they won’t impact your celebration plans. Also, think about what kind of entertainment would be the most fun for everyone involved. Do we want live music, or do we want to go with something more low-key, like a DJ?

Once these questions have been answered, create a list showing exactly where each dollar goes within the overall budget. Then look at each item on this list and ask yourself whether or not it falls into one category (food/decor) as opposed to another category (entertainment).

Hire a caterer

Hiring a caterer can be one of the best things you do for your pool opening. The caterers will help you with all aspects of the party, from food and drink to entertainment and venue. Caterers are experts in their field, so they know exactly what types of foods your guests will enjoy and make sure that everything is served hot on time. They also have high-quality equipment at their disposal (such as ice cream makers or bakery ovens), which means less work for you!

You should consider hiring a caterer if:

  • You don’t have time to do it yourself—but don’t want to go overboard either,
  • You want something special but aren’t sure where to start,
  • Your budget doesn’t allow for anything extravagant, yet.
