When you live in South Florida, you can throw a pool party no matter what season it is. A pool party is an excellent way to cool off of after a busy work week, and a good excuse to get your family and friends together. Though they can be fun, some homeowners – especially parents – can stress out about the details, such as how to keep the kids and guests safe. When planning a pool party, here are some safety tips you can use to make the day go by easier without taking away the excitement.
Make a Guest List
Many party hosts make the mistake of inviting too many people. Take a moment to sit down and plan who you would want to invite to your party, and if the amount of people is enough for your home and family to handle. Remember that a pool can get dangerous if too many guests are inside at once.
Kids can get bored fast, and bored kids may end up making up pool games that get dangerous. Prevent boredom by planning games in advance to keep the children entertained. Pool toys like noodles, water guns, and pool rings are also great items to have around in case your game list dries out. Remember that if you do buy toys, make sure that they are approved and recommended by fellow parents.
Ask for Help
From the beginning, try to avoid putting all the technical aspects of the party on your shoulders. Many guests expect food, music, and games to come with a pool party. Instead of figuring everything out by yourself, ask for help when you can. Ask your guests to bring their unique dish so you don’t have to cook an entire feast on your own or ask fellow adults to look over the kids when you have to leave the pool deck to take a break.
