Pool Party Ideas for Adults
Get Colorful for Backyard Pool Party Ideas for Adults
From floats to food I love to have lots of pops of color for a pool party. Is there anything better than sunshine and a colorful party with your friends?
Pool Floats for Backyard Pool Party Ideas for Adults
You can never have too many pool floats. For this party we wanted to keep the feeling as tropical so we bought a watermelon, strawberry and flamingo floats for our friends. And we bought a baby pool float to use as our floating cooler. Since swimming can make you very thirsty we also bought an assortment of floats for our drinks. Put your drinks and drink floats into your floating cooler so friends can swim up and get a drink and pick their float.
Pro Tip: Don't forget to buy an electric pump too. It will make blowing up your floats that much easier. You can do it all the day before so you don't have to stress about it the day of the party.
Ice Cold Drinks
Serve your drinks in a kiddie pool with ice and mini drink floats like these.
Playful straws make everything more festive. These cheers straws are the perfect addition to your pool party. They are plastic so they will last unlike paper straws. What would you want your straws to say on them? Order these yay straws off Amazon.
Pool Party Food Ideas
For pool party food ideas I love to keep the food fresh, healthy and colorful too. I like to keep the menu simple so I can enjoy my guests. Some of my favorite things to serve for a pool party include:
- Fruit Tray. To make this tray I put a small cake stand on top of a large one. Let your guest make their own mixed fruit salad.
- Mango salsa is also perfect for a pool party. You can prep it the night before and serve it as a dip for a topping for your protein like these Chicken Kebabs
Don't forget about dessert. Simply add popsicles onto a tray of ice and send them out to your guests on one of the pool rafts! It is easy to refill them. They will go fast!
Who will you invite to your Pool Party this summer?

I do think it's fun having lots and lots of pool floats available for the guests! You definitely have to keep the cold drinks ready too.
Floats do make everything better. And a cold drink is a must with the heat.

I remember when I was younger my parents had a ton of pool floats, they were so fun. We always have cold sodas and waters on ice in the shade for when we get out.
Floats make everything better
This is a wonderful idea. I just wish I had my own pool so I could have pool parties. Hopefully someday! This really is a great idea for adults.
Thank you. The kids pool works for a cooler even if you don’t have a pool.
