With summer officially in full swing, hosting a pool party for your Sweet 16th is probably a no brainer! Hanging out in the sunshine with all your besties is only made better when there’s a cannonball contest involved! We’ve come up with a few tips and tricks to help you throw the most bangin’ summer pool party Sweet 16 that your friends will have ever seen!
Before you get too far into planning your dream pool party Sweet 16, you should make sure all of your guests are able to make it! Pick a weekend that isn’t too busy and send out these cute invitations. Your guests will love that you took the extra effort to put them in the mail- plus they’ll be something they can keep to remember your party by!
One thing you need to make sure of when hosting a pool party, is that you have enough of the supplies that your guests might need! This means bringing extra sunscreen, towels, goggles, sunglasses, and pool floats. You never know when someone might forget something, and you definitely don’t want them to miss out on any of the fun because of it!
Decorating your party space is a perfect way to get your guests into the celebration spirit! While the pool may not leave a ton of room for other decorations, you can easily add napkins, plates, and cups of the same theme to your food table!
Next, you’ll want to make sure that you have some super easy and yummy finger foods. Hot dogs, chips and dip, cut veggies, sliced fruit, popsicles, and ice cream sandwiches are all awesome ideas. Plus, they’re pretty low-maintenance, so you can focus on having fun with your friends!
Having a supply of water balloons on hand is another fun way to bring your Sweet 16 to the next level! While ordinarily some people wouldn’t like to get wet, if everyone’s already hopping in and out of the pool, a water fight will be a totally great addition to the party!
Another awesome way to make sure that your guests all have the time of their lives, is by making a playlist for the occasion. We’ve come up with a great one on Spotify, just for you! We included songs like One Dance by Drake, Island in the Sun by Weezer, Summer by Calvin Harris, and many more! Follow us at Sweet16PartyStore for this playlist and tons more like it!
Last but not least, make sure that you have a first aid kit on hand! The last thing you want at a summer fun party is someone getting hurt, but being prepared will definitely ensure that everyone has a blast.
