Planning a Summer Pool Party
Spring is here and that means it’s time to start planning your summer events!
If your Association’s amenities include a community pool, planning a summer pool party might be the perfect way to keep your residents from overheating and bring them together at the same time.
Unfortunately, planning a pool party isn’t as simple as you might think. Try typing “how to plan a pool party” into Google and roughly four million results will appear. Yikes!
No one has time to read through four million articles about how to plan the perfect party and fortunately, you don’t have to. If you use the following suggestions when planning your community pool party, it’s guaranteed to be a huge success.
First, make sure that your pool is people ready. Timing your party around your weekly pool maintenance is a sure way to make sure that the pool is clean and the chemicals are within a safe range for all residents.
Second, decide if you will have food and beverages and if so, what kind will you have. A “hydration station” with plenty of ice cold lemonade, soda, tea, water or a combo of all of them is sure to be a crowd pleaser. And a menu of chips, watermelon and BBQ hotdogs is simple to put together and is also easy on the budget.
Third, think about what kind of entertainment if any you want to arrange for your party. Most pool party planners opt to go with playing music as their form of entertainment. A new trend in pool party entertainment is an outdoor movie. Whether you choose music or movies as your entertainment, make sure that all age demographics are taken into consideration and no inappropriate choices for children are made.
Last but certainly not least, make sure you consider the safety of your guests. A first aid kit should be made available to attendees and cell phones should be available and charged in case a call to emergency services needs to be made. Additionally, the Board or Committee Members planning the event may want to consider creating a waiver for attendees to fill out.
These easy and simple ideas will help you create an enjoyable and relaxing pool experience for all of your residents!
