Unless you want your Memorial Day pool party to consist of a half-empty bag of potato chips, a few cans of soda, and deflated rubber ball you found in your garage, make sure to follow PoolSupplyWorld's Pool Party Checklist so your next event is a splash!
Guest List - Put together your guest list in advance so you can determine how much food and drink you need to purchase.
Food and Drink - Make sure your coolers are well-stocked with drinks, ice, and cups for your guests. You don't want your thirsty guests to start eyeing the pool water. Snacks, finger foods, burgers, and hot dogs are always big hits at a pool party. Opt for food that doesn't have to be refrigerated right away as it can get pretty hot outdoors. (Psst! PoolSupplyWorld even has a list of ideas for poolside recipes.)
Grill - Make sure your grill is working and gassed up for your big event! Nothing would disappoint more than a stack of uncooked meat.
Swimsuit/Apparel - Dress comfortably and don't forget to wear sunscreen!
Don't forget! You still have time to upload a picture of your swimming pool to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win a GAME Underwater Light Show! Be sure to include the hashtag #MyPool and make your post public (so they can find it and tally your entries).
You may enter as many times as you like - so get out your cameras, log in to your favorite social media network, and show the world your swimming pool!
Winners will be selected on May 16th, and notified on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. If a winner fails to respond with mailing address within three (3) days, PoolSupplyWorld reserves the right to pick a different winner in their place.
