When planning a pool party, you will want to make sure you are stocked up on Pool maintenance
supplies OKC. Once you have all your pool maintenance supplies OKC, you will be ready to start planning the party. The first step in planning your pool party is to choose a theme. This will greatly depend on who the party is for. If you are throwing a pool party for a young child, you might choose a theme that is based around their favorite toy or their favorite cartoon. They might have a favorite game or a favorite color. All these things can be turned into a theme that you can plan the party around. If it is a sweet 16 pool party, you might plan the theme around cars. If the party is for your spouse, you will know them well enough to know their favorite things like movies or hobbies and interests.
You can easily plan the theme around a favorite color with all the décor being red or yellow or blue or purple. If they love cats, you can make the theme around cats. If they love to travel to the beach you can make it a beach and bring in umbrellas and sand. If they love the roaring 1920s you can make it an evening party with a Great Gatsby theme. There are so many options out there, it just takes getting to know what the person likes.
Define your budget first. That way you will know how much you must spend on invitations, party
supplies, decorations, the cake, and the food, and the pool maintenance supplies OKC. As well as the
a number of guests that you can afford to invite. Once the theme and the budget are in place, and you know the part is a go, you can set the date. Make sure it does not fall on or around a major holiday when people already have other plans, because it could affect your outcome and attendance. Make sure the person you are hosting is available on that date. Make sure you will have plenty of time to plan everything and that the invites will be created, picked up, mailed, and received by invitees in time for them to plan to attend.
If the pool is at your home, then you will not have to search for and book the venue. If you are wanting
to throw a pool party, but you do not have a pool, you will have to find a friend or a family member or a
private or public pool that you can reserve for the party. You will want to make sure they have plenty of
pool maintenance supplies OKC on hand.
Preparing your guest list will be the next step. If this is a party for a child, and you have a certain number
of people in mind that you have budgeted for, you will want to take into account that one or both of
their parents may or may not come with them, and if they have young siblings, they may join them as
well. If the party is for an adult, you will want to decide if you want to include a plus one on the invite
for the single people you are inviting. The rule of thumb is that only around half of the people you invite
will show up, so it is usually okay to over invite based on the number you have on your budget, but be
careful because sometimes people will bring more than one guest or an entire household with them.
Now it is time to create your invites. You can purchase pre-made invitations that have blanks that you
can write in, or you can use online companies that have templates that you can modify. You can make
your own invitations online, or you can hire a professional. You can also use social media to create and
send out group invites. Once they are created and / or received, it is time to send them out. That could
be through email, post office, social media, or even hand delivery if you are inviting neighbors or
You will want to start purchasing your party supplies and storing them in a safe place. Keep all receipts if the party must be canceled at the last minute. Purchase as many decorations as you can ahead of time to save yourself time. Save those receipts too in case they must be returned. If you are going to have balloons or flowers, those will need to wait until the day of the party so that they are fresh and inflated and look their best come party time. Order the cake as far in advance as possible. Especially if you have a specific person or style of cake that you want. Pool party season is also the wedding season and graduation season, so you will want to plan that way in advance to get what you want. A birthday cake is an important part of the party and you do not want to have to settle for something less by waiting too long, or until the last minute.
Plan the party agenda as time allows, but get it done in plenty of time so that you have an idea of what
needs to be done and when. This will help you manage and plan the details along the way without any
surprises. Plan the menu based on who is coming, and with all the restrictions and dietary needs of people these days, you will want to make sure you have food to accommodate those people. Have a variety, but also
include, if you can, the food items that will be served on the invitations so that people will be prepared
and can eat before or after if they need to, or bring their own snack if they must. When you go to Patio
Galaxy to pick up your pool maintenance supplies OKC, you can pick up sauces and seasonings for your
food if you plan to cook outside.
Buy presents for the person you are hosting the party for, as well as party favors for the guests who will
be in attendance? This is something that could fall through with everything else on your plate.
Last of all, have fun, and remember to keep plenty of pool maintenance supplies OKC on hand!
