It’s the 4th of July in San Jose – and that means celebrating our freedom and hard-fought independence with a relaxing day by the pool with friends and family! From tasty BBQ to pool games, the only limit to your July 4th outdoor celebration is your own creativity. As you think about putting together a tried and true Independence Day celebration around the water, here are three tips for ensuring that your party is talked about until Christmas!
1. Pick A Fun Pool Party Theme
A quick and easy way to guarantee that your party really makes an impact is with a fun theme. While you can take the simple route and invite your friends over to swim and eat, adding a theme to the party can give you a launching pad for tons of fun activities and games.
With 4th of July, consider going all-out with a red, white, and blue theme. Throw in a few colored pool noodles and challenge your guests to a timed noodle-flag-creation competition. Throw an Uncle Sam hat and a King George powdered wig into the mix and have a one-on-one game of revolutionary pool chicken! When you add a theme to your party, you can easily add fun, customized party games to your pool soiree.
2. Food, Food, Food (And Some Drinks)
Compliments to the chef. No pool party is complete without a great selection of food and drinks. From BBQ straight off the grill to a variety of sweet treats like watermelon or ice cream, having a full menu of tasty options will ensure that your guests have a great time at your party.
Want to take it to the next level? Consider hosting a pool party cookoff! Invite guests to bring their favorite July 4th-themed treats and host a competition for who will take home the top honor. Whether they are snacks to enjoy while lounging on a giant pool flamingo, or cocktails to sip while you dip your toes in the shallow end, bring your foodie A-Game to your next pool party!
3. Pool Party Olympics 2020
Looking for a way to bring the fun at this summer’s Independence Day pool party? Even though the summer Olympics have been postponed, that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the Olympic spirit to your pool party.
Grab a few pool noodles, some beach balls, and a pool-approved basketball net and let the games begin! Have a diving board? Bring some erasable whiteboards and hold a diving competition – judges and all! A round-robin pool-chicken tournament will bring the Olympic wrestling spirit alive. Take your pool party to the next level with a full day of pool-related Olympic activities.
