The end of summer is just around the corner, so why not end it with a bang? Before you close your pool for the season, throw a pool party that your family and friends won’t forget! We’ve put together a recipe for a Hawaiian-themed pool “luau” that will ensure your summer ends on a high note.
Create a Fun Atmosphere
Décor – Imagine you’re relaxing on the beautiful beaches of Hawaii – what do you see around you? Make your guests feel as though they’ve been transported to the island by setting up a few decorations. Maybe you’d like to invest in a Bamboo Bar or some fun Bamboo Signs. Bring the tropics to your backyard by decorating with bright colors.
Food – Re-fuel your guests with fun Hawaiian snacks! Macadamia nuts and fresh fruits will infuse your party with some seriously tropical vibes. This Hawaiian Dip, made with cream cheese, coconut, and crushed pineapple, is simple to make and sure to be a hit! Don’t forget to designate a snack area that’s far from the pool to avoid any spills!
Drinks –Whether you’re throwing a pool party for kids or adults, you will need something to quench your guests’ thirst. Serve a homemade Hawaiian punch and add umbrellas to the glasses to really capitalize on the Hawaiian theme.
Music - A pool party isn’t complete without some music to liven up the scene! If you don’t have time to put a playlist together, use a website like Pandora to stream a certain genre of music during the party. Keep things fun by choosing upbeat tunes from a variety of genres. Check out this list of Hawaiian-themed songs for some ideas!
Prep your Pool
Before the guests arrive, make sure your pool is in pristine condition. Use Pool & Spa Giant’s Large Pool Maintenance Kit to ensure maximum cleanliness. Vacuum the bottom of your pool and skim the surface for any leaves or debris. Check the chemical levels and make sure all equipment is working properly.
Now is the time to stock up on any pool toys and activities to keep your guests occupied during the party. Here are a few toys that will make your Hawaiian luau a blast!
· Pool Inflatables – Stock up on some pool inflatables prior to your party to ensure that if your guests want to relax and soak up some sunshine, they have that option.
Once you’ve planned the luau and prepared your pool for guests, it’s time to send out the invitations! This is going to be one party that your friends and family will not want to miss!
