Presentation Pointers 1. Since the food will probably be served outside, remember to keep all perishable food over ice to prevent it from spoiling.

2. Make sure to have pool toys available for your guests: inflatable beach balls, floats, or "noodles". You can even use inflatable toys to decorate!

3. Decorate the area with palm trees, citronella candles, flowers or anything with that summer feel. Have some leis or beachwear for your guests to keep up the summery theme.
