Everyone loves a pool party during Florida’s hottest summer months. The Fourth of July is the perfect summer holiday for backyard barbecues and poolside fun. As you prepare to celebrate this Fourth of July, check out these ideas to keep your friends and family buzzing about your swimming pool party for weeks to come.

Stand Out with Creative Invitations

The invitations are the first things your guests see, so get those creative juices flowing to make a good first impression. Think of a way to combine your favorite pool party activities with Fourth of July festivities. Stand out with beach ball invitations or red, white, and blue flip flops.

If the party is for the kids, have them help out with picking out and designing the party invitations. The kids will love the chance to be creative and get excited for the pool party festivities.

Get Creative with Themes

Party decorations help set the mood for the event, and the trick is to use the motifs without overdoing them. Create a festive backdrop for your party by covering patio tables in a blue tablecloth with a neutral pattern combined with hanging red, white, and blue streamers. Dazzle guests and stand out with colored underwater pool LED lights with red and blue color show for a patriotic effect.

 Place Cards with Pizzazz

As much as the pool is the main focus of any summer pool party, your guests will not want to go hungry. If you’re planning a sit-down meal at your party, create fun place cards by tying the cards to bouquets of sparklers with themed ribbons. Take it up a notch with glitter “fireworks” on the cards with glue and red, white, and blue glitter. For more casual eating arrangements, hand out bouquets of sparklers as party favors or in goodie bags.

Red, White, and Blue Party Treats

Free food? Say no more! There are lots of fun ideas you can try with food for a Fourth of July party. If you’re hosting a party for the kids, ensure they stay hydrated with red, white, and blue popsicles. For dessert, you can also make a fabulous red, white, and blue trifle by layering vanilla pudding in a glass bowl with strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream. Bon appétit!
