Swimming Pool Party in September?

Labor Day weekend is unofficially known as the end of summer, or at least, the end of summer vacation. But this doesn't have to make you sad... so long as you throw a Labor Day swimming pool party! Whoever said pool parties are only for June, July or August anyway?

A pool party is the perfect way to end your summer off on a high note and take advantage of a three day weekend. For a successful event, you'll need a few key things. First, you'll need good food. Whether you want to grill out or cater, delicious food is essential to any successful party. I mean, how else are you going to draw people to go?

Another key thing is a proper theme. Grab some tiki torches to make your space feel like Hawaii. Or maybe grill some shrimp for your guests as if you're in the Caribbean. Whatever theme you choose, cater your food and decor around it for consistency. Not only will it be a great experience, but it's easier to accomplish than you think.

One final tip, make sure you have good company! Whether it's family and friends or bosses and coworkers, a party isn't a party if no one's there. We hope you have a blast this Labor Day weekend. As pool season comes to a close, we challenge you to make the most of it and make it a festivity that you'll want to repeat every year! Looking for more great tips on hosting a great pool party?
