Plan An Extra Special Pool Party!
If you have children or grandchildren who celebrate their birthdays in the summer, a pool party is an especially excellent way to get the kids moving. While they're swimming, you can begin to serve up some light courses for them to eat after they're finished swimming.
Your RSVP Editor
Start things off light and easy just in case some of the guests want to eat before swimming!
Set your main course out buffet style. Sandwiches and quesadillas are meals they can take on the go!
Grilled Lemon Chicken Kabobs
Curried Chicken Pita Pockets
Pool Party Pasta Salad
Hearts of Palm Salad
Summer Potato Salad
Creamed Cole Slaw
Easy Vegetable Chow Mein
Summertime pies and ice cream will be a terrific way to cool off the swimmers once they get into the hot sun!
Fruit Whip Ice Cream
Sweet Berry Dessert
Easy Breezy Summer Cake
Good Homemade Ice Cream
Stick to fruity ones without any alcohol!
Luscious Strawberry Smoothie (Non-Dairy)
Delicious Fruit Drink
Peach Citrus Smoothie
Pastel Summer Punch
- If you’re one of those people who collect plastic grocery bags, here is your time to use them. Distribute them to guests after they are done swimming. They can carry their wet things in them when they are ready to go home.
- Provide sunscreen for the swimmers. You don’t want anyone getting burnt, so make sure to remind any children you see swimming or walking around the pool.
- Organize a couple fun games, such as a water balloon toss. That’ll get everyone out of the pool, and give them sometime to chill out before pigging out.
