Exciting Pool Birthday Party Ideas
You know it’s time to hit the poolside when the temperature hits 90 degrees in the shade. What better way to celebrate a birthday in summer than to host an awesome pool themed party to give your guests a chance to cool off in a pool and splash around. Though a pool birthday party is ideal for summertime birthdays, that doesn’t mean you can’t have some summer-fun in the winter.
By renting an indoor pool at any available location, you can have a fun-filled poolside party with all the luxury of paddling in a heated pool. Have a look through the pool birthday party ideas given below to help you beat the heat, and plan a cool and refreshing birthday party.
Ideas For A Pool Birthday Party
Pool Birthday Party Themes
While you’ve selected a pool theme as the overall theme for the birthday party, you can add an interesting twist to this theme to make your pool birthday party more unique. You can have a luau or tropical themed pool birthday, a beach or surf themed birthday, a SpongeBob themed birthday (for kids), mermaid themed party (like the Little Mermaid theme) for girls, undersea themed birthday and more.
Pool Birthday Party Supplies And Decor
You can find a variety of pool themed invitations from tropical themed invites to surf themed ones, at sites like Zazzle, Party City and InvitationBox. Alternatively, if you wish to save a little money, you can also download and print the cute pool party invitation template that is available at the Disney family site. Party America has a number of summer themed items like leis, hula skirts, water and bubble toys, colorful tableware and more, that would be perfect for a poolside party.

It is also possible to purchase a good many of the supplies you need from Party City, which offers pool birthday themed tableware, decorations, favors, music and other items. Furthermore, you can always find inexpensive bargains on eBay, Amazon and Etsy.
If you want to save a few pennies, go the DIY route and make simple but colorful decorations to suit your pool birthday party theme. Simply use colorful decorations like balloons and streamers for a summery or tropical look, or blue and green combinations to create a cool ocean atmosphere for a pool theme like the undersea theme.
You can also use real sea shells, paper cutouts, paper lanterns, tropical paper skirts made out of green or brown paper cut into strips, with paper or artificial flowers pasted around the table edge for an authentic luau look and other decorations, while decorating for a pool birthday party. The options are simply endless if you use a bit of creative ingenuity, thrifty planning and some colorful cardstock.
Food And Poolside Fun
You will need to have plenty of light summer themed snacks like fruit snacks, finger foods, ocean inspired food like fish and chips, and barbecued stuff like hot dogs, burgers, etc.
Drinks are also very important, especially if you’re hosting a pool birthday party in the summer, so make sure you have sodas (in coolers), fruity cocktails or punch with umbrellas, and plain ice water for guests that are really thirsty. Top off your colorful and refreshing menu with a pool themed cake by using the recipe at the Disney family site.
When it comes to fun and games for a pool birthday party, it is really easy to entertain your guests. Simply let your guests have the run of the pool to paddle in and relax. Make use of water toys and bubble toys, balloons, beach balls, and other items to amuse your guests. With just a little planning you can organize a number of games like volleyball, relay races, diving for pennies, and more. Don’t forget to play some awesome poolside music for a more summery ambience.
