Custom Swimming Pools Custom swimming pools aren’t just for swimming. They’re also the perfect place to host a party! If you’re new to the world of custom swimming pools and are getting ready to entertain your friends or some of your family members, here are some tips to get started.

Guest List

Before you do anything else, come up with a guest list. The number of people on your guest list, as well as their ages, will largely affect the decorations you use and the type of food and drinks you serve. After you come up with your guest list, either send out invitations or directly contact each person on it.


Now, it’s time to come up with a theme for your party. If you want to host a party that is more stylish and reserved, keep your decoration plans simple and enhance the space near your swimming pool with fresh flowers and classic lighting. If you intend on throwing a party that’s more laid back, you may want to incorporate colorful decorations, like large beach balls and bright streamers.

The Menu

Regardless of who’s coming to the party at your custom swimming pool, the menu that you serve should be relatively simple. For instance, since your guests will likely be spending most of their time out by the pool, you may want to serve things that they don’t have to use a knife and a fork to eat. Additionally, you may want to set up a beverage station near the pool, so your guests can get drinks when they want them.
