ABOUT THE THEME

What better way to celebrate an engagement than with a pool party? If you don’t have access to a pool, look into local venues like a country club or hotels with a swanky rooftop pool. Serve up fresh fruits and sweet treats, alongside a tropical (and refreshing) cocktail. Add a bit of whimsy to the pool area by spreading flower petals around the pool, and filling the water with fun inflatables.

VIBE: Upbeat

Entertainment

FIRE DANCER

When the sun sets, stage entertainment that transitions the party from day to night. A fire dancer is totally unexpected, but fits right in with the poolside theme.


Venue Settings

COUNTRY CLUB

If you’re really bent on a pool party, but don’t have any access to a pool, research local country clubs or hotels. They often have poolside areas that are a little more upscale than your neighborhood fitness club’s lap pool.


Food

DESSERT BAR

Deck out a dessert table with sweet treats and a variety of fresh fruit, like watermelon, pineapple and mango. Dress up the table with a colorful tablecloth and floral arrangements.


Beverage

HURRICANES

Lean into tropical vibes with a rum cocktail that can be served on the rocks or blended, like hurricanes. If you can get your hands on some yardstick party cups, we encourage it.

FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS

Dress up the party with bright and cheery florals. If you’re throwing your soiree in the summer months, some of the most popular in-seasonal flowers include daisies, dahlias, peonies, hydrangeas and lavender.

SIGNAGE

Don’t forget that you’re celebrating the happy couple! Add loads of signs filled with happy sayings, quotes and well-wishing. Calligraphy will lend a touch of elegance to the signage, while sans-serif all-caps lettering will feel more modern.
