If you want to enjoy the summer, then throwing a pool party is the best way to do it. Spending quality time with your family and close friends is the best way to enjoy this summer. And a pool party with creative snacks, amazing drinks, and fun activities is going to make this experience even more memorable.
But throwing a pool party can be expensive and if you’re on a budget then it’s almost impossible to organize such a party.
Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.
Here are some ways you can plan a great pool party on a budget…
1. Cook The Snacks Yourself
While you may want to just hit the store and buy some snacks for your pool party, it’s not a good idea if you’re on a low budget.
Let’s face it. Foods from stores are expensive and the cost of food can easily deplete your whole budget at a moment’s notice. That’s why you should always aim to cook your snacks instead of just buying them, especially if you’re on a tight budget.
Cooking snacks at home is cost-effective. Besides, they’re much more healthy alternative to the snacks found in stores. And the best part is you can get creative with them.
So, stop serving them the same old boring chips and spice things up with your homemade snacks. Your guests will definately love them.
2. Control The Alcohol Consumption
There’s no pool party without alcohol. But the thing is that they can easily mess up with your party budget because:
- They’re expensive.
- Your guests will never have enough of it.
So, instead of organizing a party with limitless alcohol, try setting a limit on how much alcohol a single guest can consume. You can even spice things up and ask your guests to bring their favorite beer to create a new kind of shot. You can even limit the consumption by creating a theme-cocktail that compliments the snacks.
However, if you’re really on a tight budget, try making special alcoholic shots and make them exclusive and limited in amount. This way, you can easily cut the cost down and your guests will have fun too.
3. Do The Shopping For The Pool Party During Sales
Try using unique toys during your party. And if you’re planning to serve alcohol with them, then they’re going to be even more fun. The truth is, playing with great rubber toys all over the pool is going to be a lot more memorable than a mundane party drinking alcohol beside the pool.
But these toys cost a lot and you’re on a budget. How’s the idea possibly going to work out?
Simple. Buy them during sales. During the sales, you can get these toys at a heavy discount so you’ll not have to break your bank to buy them. It’s even wise to buy them off-season to get even more discount on them.
This way, you can save a lot of money while organizing a mind-blowing pool party.
