Spring has sprung, and it’s finally safe to leave the comfort of your own home. And this warmer weather means one thing – it’s nearly pool season! It’s the perfect time to start thinking about your poolside entertaining, and getting organised now will mean you can relax and enjoy yourself when guests are over.
First things first, nobody wants their guests to have a bad time. For this reason, when preparing your pool for entertaining, make sure your pool water is balanced, so it is comfortable for your swimmers. You don’t want their eyes or skin to get irritated! We recommend using BioGuard Pool Acid; it is designed to decrease pH and total alkalinity levels in pool water. It is also a good idea to check your pool equipment is functioning correctly, and there is no loose tiling and uneven surfaces in the surrounding area of your pool.
Assess your Pool Lifestyle
When prepping for entertaining around your pool, it’s useful to consider your pool lifestyle. Is your pool the local hangout for your kids and all their friends? Or is the space geared towards evening barbeques and late night swims? Assessing your lifestyle allows you to get organised efficiently and ensure you are using your pool to its best capacity.
To create the perfect kid’s retreat, invest in flotation devices, pool toys, and extra beach towels. You will be equipped to entertain the masses!
An enticing poolside oasis will need lounge chairs, nighttime lighting, and stylish outdoor dinnerware. Decorating with bright colours will make your pool area fun and inviting. But beware – your outdoor space will be so lovely you’ll never be able to get your guests to leave!
The secret to stress-free entertaining is planning! Make sure you’re stocked up on food, drinks, towels, outdoor dinnerware and clean cooking utensils. Being organised ahead of time will mean your event will run smoothly, allowing you to enjoy yourself too!
If you plan on having guests over in the evening, ensure your pool area will be adequately lit. Lanterns and fairy lights are an inexpensive option to complement your pool lighting and will create a relaxing ambience.
Getting your pool prepped in advance will allow you to focus on what’s truly important – quality time spent with family and friends. And you don’t have to blow your budget. Following our simple tips will transform your pool area into a heavenly space. It’s time to get cool by the pool!
