Here at Namco, we’re all about at-home fun! A backyard pool gives you and your family endless hours of entertainment, all summer long.
But you can also utilize your outdoor poolscape to entertain friends, throw kid’s parties, or enjoy a romantic evening with your spouse. Adding a few simple decorations and party favors can take your at-home party from drab to fab in no time.
Here are 7 unique ideas you can use to make your next party simply… unforgettable!
1. Faires in a Jar
These will glow in the dark for 6-9 hours. Hang them from trees or surround your pool for a magical night swim.
- Get a mason jar or another type of jar with a lid
- Break open a glow stick and empty contents into jar
- Add glitter
- Close jar and shake!
Not a Do-it-Yourself kind of person? Recreate the same magical effect with one of Namco’s underwater lighting effects.
2. Magical or Romantic Pool Party
For entertaining a party of friends; or for a romantic party for two once the kids finally have gone to bed. Blossom light floating candles add that special touch of modern elegance to make your evening special. Order online.
Party for the kids: Try the flame free fiber optic version to make this look: Blossom Light Fiber Optic
Plush robes for him and her: Slip into something comfortable after your swim. Available at your local Namco store.
3. Easy Pool-Side S’Mores
Kind of like camping, but from the comfort and convenience of home without the heat of a fire on a hot summer day.
- Line a terra cotta pot with foil
- Add charcoals (lighter fluid if needed)
- Light it up!
4. Neon Glow in the Dark Pool After-Party
Brighten up any party with neon fun! Perfect for an evening kids Birthday pool party or a funky dinner party for adults. Add fairy jars and glowing drink display and you’ll light up the whole neighborhood!
If you’re going to throw a pool party; make sure your guests are comfortable! Invest in a beautiful patio set.
5. Cool Pool Side Elegance
Having a more formal get-together? Add a cool touch to your summer pool party by freezing sprigs of your favorite herbs and edible flowers right into your ice cubes.
6. Paper Lantern Pool Lighting Effect
For those of you with built-in decks around your above-ground pool, take advantage of that deck space to try out this magical lighting effect. It’s easier than it looks!
- String waterproof Christmas lights through white paper lanterns
- Secure a wooden beam, rod, or stick through the series of paper lanterns
7. Pool and a Movie
Forget popcorn and a movie – pool and a movie is much better! Watch the movie from the pool, or set up some pillows in the yard and enjoy a movie after a long day of fun in the sun!
- White sheet secured to trees or with a DIY stand (get creative!)
- Projector (be cautious of electrical components around water)
- Have fun decorating your outdoor cinema!
Watch the movie in style and comfort from one of our pool lounges, some are equipped with cup holder and all. You’ll never want to watch movies any other way! Check out our complete list of pool floats!
