Heat Up this Winter with a Tropical-Themed Pool Party
Winter has so much to offer, from festive holidays to cozy evenings by the fire. It’s time to add another tradition to the list: winter pool parties! Depending on where you live—or if you have an indoor pool—turn up the heat with a fun, summerlike pool party, right in the middle of winter!
Let Tropical Décor Themes Set the Scene
You and your guests are probably ready for a break from the typical winter décor. So, go all out with summer-themed decorations that will make everyone feel like they've been transported to a tropical island. Turn your backyard into a luau with paper lanterns or strings of colorful lights, leis hanging from trees and brightly colored tablecloths for your patio tables. If your pool has IntelliBrite® 5g Color-Changing LED Lights, you can choose one of the seven available modes, such as Caribbean or Party, to really set the mood.
Float Some Inflatables
Inflatables are another fun way to liven up your poolscape. From beach balls to flamingos and palm trees, pick inflatables that will carry through your theme. Don't forget to put a few floating loungers and pool noodles in the water, as well.
Stir Up Signature Cocktails
Every party needs a special drink or two! This fruity Rosé Sangria is a refreshing taste of summer. For a nonalcoholic option, this Pretty Pink Punch gives off serious warm-weather vibes. Add some colorful drink umbrellas and fun straws so guests can sip in style.
Whip Up Yummy Treats
Don’t forget the noshes! Beef and Ground Pork Sliders are a tasty, easy-to-manage option, as are Spicy Grilled Shrimp skewers. For something sweet, try these fun Coconut Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes. Of course, you can never go wrong offering up chips with your favorite guacamole, as well as a cheese and veggie tray.
Warm Up Your Backyard
Even if your pool is heated, the air will most likely be on the cooler side. So, make sure your backyard has everything you need to keep your party as warm as possible. If you can, provide all your guests with big beach towels or thick robes when they get out of the pool. Get the fire pit or outdoor fireplace going and arrange a few heaters around the patio. Even adding extra lighting to the yard will make the environment seem a little warmer in the winter.
Winter pool parties are the perfect way to keep the spirit of summer alive—at least until it actually gets here! We’d love to hear your ideas festive winter pool parties. Share them here!
