3 Tips for Throwing the Graduation Pool Party of the Summer

Even if graduation season is over, it’s never too late to throw a graduation party. Whether you’d like to let a special graduate in your life know how proud you are of their accomplishments, or you’d like to celebrate how far you’ve come, now’s the time! Graduation parties are a must for celebrating, letting loose, and blowing off some steam before the graduate goes off to higher education or to find a job.

At Carlton Pools, we offer swimming pool renovations in Bucks County, PA, and neighboring communities, and we have to ask: what’s a graduation party without a swimming pool? If you’d like to throw the graduation party of the summer, don’t forget to open your pool! Here are three tips for hosting a spectacular party you’ll never forget:

  1. Food, drinks, cake – When it comes to graduation parties, you’re probably going to have a lot of hungry high school or college kids as guests. That means you’ll want to get some food and beverages to hold them over. Whether you think getting a caterer or preparing it yourself would be best is up to you, just make sure you have some kind of food to offer. Also, don’t forget a “Congratulations!” cake (if that’s what the graduate would like).
  2. Plan the decorations and decorate! – Whether you want your party to have a theme, or you just want to blow up some balloons and hang some streamers, don’t forget to decorate! It really makes a big difference in giving your backyard a celebratory atmosphere. Some good themes include The Graduate’s School Colors, Tropical, and more.
  3. Get your pool ready – Perhaps the most important part of throwing the graduation party of the summer – your swimming pool! Make sure your pool is clean, chlorinated, and ready to go! Consider buying a beach ball to play with, and let the graduates have fun!
