Ultimate Guide to Adult Pool Party
Summer isn’t for a couple months, but it’s never too late to start planning a pool party! You’re going to need everything from food, drink, DJ, and the most important — decorations.
Get geared up for a summer with our top 10 pool party essentials:
1. Pool Inflatables
Whale, whale, whale…
You’ll definitely need a pool inflatable to be the Instagram focal point of the party. The swan and flamingo pool floats have been done before, change it up this summer with a whale float. Plus you can get some punny captions with it too, if you catch our drift.

No need for ordering a giant ice luge in advanced from some sketchy company you found on Yelp and make time during your party set up to pick it up. Freeze your own ice luge overnight and for even more fun get two so your guests can race.

When was the last time you went to a party with a pinata? It was the best birthday party activity when we were kids, but faded away as we got through middle and high school. Bring that baby back with a summer shape like a watermelon or pineapple.
