We’re talking about a 4th of July pool party, where kids and adults alike can enjoy the great outdoors on America’s birthday. Here are some last-minute tips for throwing together a 4th of July pool party for this coming Tuesday.
Fourth of July Pool Party Tips: Essential Ingredients
Choosing the best 4th of July pool party food all depends on the group. These are some immediate crowd-pleasers to pick up in a pinch:
Fresh fruit — Watermelon is the easiest and most delicious choice to please a crowd. Other great options are pineapple, strawberries and mango slices.
Grill items — Fire it up for burgers, hot dogs, chicken or even vegetable kebabs.
Drinks — Some refreshing cocktails and other beverages will make your guests happy. To up the game, throw in some decorative napkins and use fun glass choices — or plastic, if your friends are prone to breaking things. Don’t forget to fill up a pitcher for water.
4th of July desserts — No 4th of July celebration is complete without sweet treats. Popsicles are popular, along with ice cream. For a healthy choice, yogurt parfaits with red and blue berries makes for spirited 4th of July pool party food.
Fourth of July Décor, Floats and Favors
While a pool might need no decorations for the rest of the year, a 4th of July pool party demands some extra touches. Pool float features like pool noodles, doughnut and those fun inflatable animals are just a few choices.
Extra space mean decorating even more. Add flags, signs and hanging decorations around the deck for extra vibes. Adult extra hard with a floating cooler for the drinks, a volleyball net for games and of course, beach balls that stick nearby no matter where you are in the pool.
Favors means take-home fun. Increase your friend’s summer fashion game by giving cute sunglasses and baked goods in goody bags to take home.
Catch a 4th of July Fireworks Display
The closer your pool party is to a spectacular fireworks display, the better. Find a pool that will give you all-access to the country’s favorite light show, whether that’s in your own pool or a friend’s.

Music is crucial for a fun afternoon. Play a list from Spotify or Apple Music based on everyone’s preferences. If you’d prefer someone else to take over the tunes, ask, a friend that plans to attend and help with your 4th of July pool party ideas to create something.
Be The Host With The Most
An excellent host makes sure everyone’s needs are met. Carry plenty of towels and water bottles out by the pool, and tidy up the area — so that any mess present is the one your guests make while having a blast at the party.
