Summer entertainment season is here, which means it’s time to gather some new dinner party ideas, so you can get back to entertaining outside. If throwing a party is one of your favorite things to do at home, and especially if you’ve got a beautiful custom pool in your backyard, now’s the time to start planning.
Just picture it – you’ve invited a few of your favorite couples over for a grown-up evening pool party. The pool lights are glimmering under the water, you’ve got twinkling stars overhead, and there’s a gentle breeze blowing and making your Tampa pool the perfect temperature. Your friends show up with some nice bottles of wine and a certain sense of anticipation, because they know you always throw the best parties. You’ve probably already gotten a reputation for being the place to be and have lots of tried and true ideas for parties, but here are five more adult pool party themes you can add to your hospitality arsenal.
Go south of the border with nachos, a taco bar, fajitas, margaritas and Cervezas, and delicious fried ice cream for dessert. You could string chili pepper lights from your ceiling, and even include a piñata stuffed with candies and toys adults will enjoy.
Fire Pit Night
Break out the guitar (or queue some up on your sound system), the fixings for s’mores, and some extra comfy seating around your patio fire pit. There’s something magically relaxing and intimate about staring into the dancing flames while talking with good friends. Sparkling wine will echo the light in the fire.
Lowcountry Boil Night
This one takes some advanced preparation but will delight your guests like nothing else they taste all summer. The décor is super simple: a table covered with newspaper is the base. Don’t forget a stash of damp, warm washcloths – this is a messy menu.
Go old school with a trip back to the 1970′s for a party theme that may bring flashbacks. Once you do all the initial prep for a fondue party, the bulk of the work is done for the cook because your guests will dip meat, bread, fruit, and even cake into the series of fondue pots for appetizers, entrees, and dessert.
Farm to Table Night
Simple decorations like wildflowers in Mason jars and candles in wine bottles set the tone for this pool party theme. The menu, whether you do all the prep or make it a potluck, features locally grown produce, freshly prepared. You may even be able to find a local wine or craft beer to continue the theme into your beverages.
Let your imagination run wild with these ideas and have fun with your decorations, invitations, and music selection. Throw in some fun pool party games, a delicious menu prepared in your outdoor kitchen, and some creative adult beverages, it’s going to be a great night enjoyed by the side of your Florida pool.
