No matter what type of event you are planning, a pool party is a great idea for a summer celebration. There is no better feeling than having fun in the sun with your family and friends at the Club. Hosting your private pool party is easy breezy when you collaborate with our hard-working team. Here you can find tips to keep in mind while planning an unforgettable pool party that will amaze your guests.

Choose Your Menu

No matter if you’re planning on hosting a lunch or dinner with your party, our Club has delectable menus you can choose from to customize your private pool event. Let us take the stress away from planning a fabulous meal for your guests! Ask our catering team about our menu options to satisfy everyone at your party. Some of these options include pizzas, sliders, and hot dogs for kid meals or a classic BBQ chef’s table for the adults.


Choosing a fun theme for your pool party is a great way to customize your event. We would recommend choosing your theme early on since the style of your party may influence your invitations, activities, decorations, and even desserts. Adding DIY elements for your celebration is a great way to decorate if you are on a budget. Some of the more typical pool party themes we see are beach, Hawaiian, flamingos, and even glow in the dark is you are having a night pool party. If you’re not the biggest fan of planning around a theme, then decorating with bright colors is also an option! Summer is all about having fun and hanging out with your friends and family. Bright colors will add a more exciting and fun vibe to your event. Ask your coordinator to show you some previous pool parties at our venue to get some ideas!

Staying Hydrated!

While everyone is spending hours in the hot sun, it’s always a good idea to stay hydrated! When kids are playing in the pool, they are likely to give no thought to drinking water. If this is a kid’s pool party, then a water and lemonade station is a perfect way to keep the little ones satisfied. Keeping easy access to a beverage station is the easiest solution for hydration. For an adult pool party, a variety of alcoholic drinks will please your guests. Ask the Club about details on serving alcoholic beverages at the pool during your celebration.

If you wanted to elevate your party a bit more, then adding a signature cocktail or mocktail to your event is a perfect way to do so! Signature drinks are an exquisite way to add a little detail to your party. If you are planning on keeping a theme for your celebration, finding a drink with this theme will tie your party together and keep things consistent. If you would like to add a signature drink but don’t know where to start, ask the Club to provide a few recommendations. Our experienced catering team are experts and will assist you in any way possible.

Have a Sweet Tooth?

Ice cream and a pool parties go together like peanut butter and jelly. You can’t have one without the other! Upgrade your celebration by adding a delicious ice cream station with numerous toppings to choose from. Ice cream is the perfect treat for both adults and kids and will be a huge hit at your pool party! To make your ice cream station stand out, adding table decorations that match your party theme will make your frozen treats look irresistible! Even adding simple signage will give the station a more personalized feel.

Pool Party Games

Adding a few yard games to your pool party is another fun way to keep your guests entertained if they are not in the pool. Yard games such as cornhole, giant Jenga, or ladder ball are an exciting addition. However, buying these games may be a little expensive and lugging them around in your car can be annoying. Our Club has yard games that may be rented! Ask the Club what type of yard games we have to offer to add to your celebration! Adding a game to the pool is also an option. There are lots of blow-up games out there to float in the pool like ring toss, basketball, and tic-tac-toe!

Pack Your Pool Bag

Now that you have scheduled and finalized your pool party, it’s time to pack your pool bag! No need to worry about packing towels. The Club’s got you covered and has lots of towels to supply to you and guests. Sunscreen is a must for spending a day at the pool. If you plan on having lots of little ones at your pool party, a sunscreen station may be your best option. Keeping the sunscreen out in the open where people can see it will remind them to put some on. Sunglasses, a floppy hat, and a swim coverup are also great items to pack for a sunny day at the pool to keep your skin protected.
