With St. Patrick’s Day coming, it’s time to start planning for your special celebrations. A St. Patty Day pool party can be an excellent way to enjoy your time with friends and family. To have lots of fun, you should plan your party in advance. Since it is a poolside party, make sure that your swimming pool is ready for the fun. Here are some tips to plan a perfect revelry on the St. Patrick’s Day:
Choose the Day
March 17 is the most obvious choice of date for celebrations. St. Patrick’s Day falls on this date. But, if you want to avoid the holiday rush, you can plan your party at a nearby date rather than on March 17.
Keep in mind the convenience of your guests and scope of the party. If you want to throw an eclectic beer party, shift it to the weekend. For a casual Irish dinner, you can select Wednesday as the right time for the party.
Themed Decoration for the Party
In a party, decorations set the right mood for the occasion. For St. Patty Day pool party, choose green as the theme color and plan your decoration around it. You can choose green table mats, cups, and plates for the perfect table settings. Other decorations should also complement the theme. So, pick the balloons, curtains, paper fans, and floating hats in the green color.
Illuminate the Pool and Backyard
Without proper lighting, there’s no fun in a pool party. Hence, plan your St. Patrick’s Day party after setting up proper lighting arrangements in your pool and backyard. You can illuminate the swimming pool and features like waterfall by choosing LED lights in green color. They will add a green-colored theme to the swimming pool without adding chemical dyes to it.
In the landscaping, you can choose lighting options such as string lights, paper lanterns, and tiki torches. Preferably, choose them in green color to match the theme. Also, add lighting in every part of your outdoor space for safety and easy accessibility.
Set Up a Drinks Bar
A poolside party is incomplete without a drinks bar. And, when the occasion is St. Patrick’s Day, you need refreshing Irish beer flowing throughout the party. Brew Guinness cocktails or buy Irish whiskey to celebrate the occasion with fun.
Set the Right Menu
A traditional feast is all that you need to delight your guests in a St. Patty Day pool party. Start the day with colorful and savory breakfast treats. Choose bagels, donuts, sandwiches, and tropical fruits for breakfast.
You can also bake warm muffins and make rainbow pancakes to celebrate the occasion. For the true Irish impact, make green pancakes and cook some mussels for the feast. Cabbage and corned beef can make to the dinnertime menu.
Add Pool Accessories
Make your pool stand out as per the theme of the party. You can add green floating hats, green pool noodles, or giant party floats to your pool. If kids are invited, choose some floats and toys suitable for their age.
