Celebrate your next festive event in style with these amazing ideas for a splashy pool party!

Swim on through our top picks of ideas for throwing the biggest celebration by your pool and transforming your backyard into a hotspot. We’re talking about loud 90’s music, swim competitions and tropical drinks like Bahama Mama and Mojito to get your guests chatting and having a good time. Mai Tais anyone?
A Trip To The Caribbean
Bring out the Mai Tais, inflatable swan pool floats or simply make some cool cocktails in a coconut shell for a really festive and splashy pool party. A tropical theme is great during the warmer months when it’s just too hot to stay inside with your shenanigans. Choose from Mexican or Bahamian elements, or better yet, include both to transform your Sacramento backyard into a tropical oasis. Dress up your pool up with vibrant inflatable parrot floats, serve up some cocktails on flamingo coaster and arrange some fun games, all great for keeping the party light-hearted and fun. In addition to decorating your swimming pool, throw on a colorful fringed tablecloth onto a nearby table and arrange some hibiscus and dahlia flowers. When it time for food, take the party to the next level with delicacies like spicy jerk chicken, shrimp, glazed pineapples and sweet pork chops.
Revisit The Best Moments of the Olympic Games
If you still have the Olympic fever, hosting an Olympics-themed swimming pool party is a great idea. Relive Michael Phelps’ big moment by urging your guests to participate in in swimming competitions. Ask your guest to dress in their red, blue and white swimwear and arrange some faux medals as a prize for the champions. Who knows, you may discover the next Michael Phelps! You never know until you try!
Go Back To The 90s in Your Sacramento Backyard
Channel your inner ‘Fresh Prince’ for your next festive event. Think ring pops, tousled hair and accent braids but leave the doc martens by the pool. If you’re a 90s kid, throwing a 90s pool party is a great way to revisit the good old days (though less technologized). Put on your favorite 90s party music and have your guests dressed as an ode to their favorite 90’s TV show character – but in swimwear of course (think: butterfly bikinis and white t’s). If you can, bring out an inflatable screen or projector to play the music videos of some of your favorite 90’s jam.
