summer pool party essentials

Five things you need for the ultimate pool party this summer.

One way to beat the hot summer heat is by cooling down in the pool. If you’re looking to host a fun summer get-together with friends or family, these pool party essentials will provide you with everything you need to be the perfect host and have a great time outdoors.

portable speakers

A party isn’t complete without music. Gone are the days when you had to lug large speakers around or play music from inside the house. Now all you have to do is simply plug in your smartphone or mp3 player to a portable speaker and enjoy your tunes poolside. They also come in every colour under the sun such as pastels or bolder corals, red and navy, making them chic accessories.


Toys aren’t just for the kids. Popping up in lifestyle stores and on Instagram are inflatable floats for adults too. There are a variety of floats to choose from such as watermelon slices, pineapples, donuts, ice cream cones and life rings, to more creative flamingos and swans. You won’t want to leave the pool’s surface all summer long.


Anything that makes relaxing by the pool all the more easier, gets our tick of approval. Forget moving around hefty lounge chairs to accommodate your guests, consider a poolside mat instead. A poolside mat allows you to simply pop  your towel over the top, and lie back to work on that tan without any discomfort from the hard ground. Choose from a variety of colours and prints to suit the theme of the party.


Glass is not ideal near the pool, but that doesn’t mean you have to forsake on less than stylish drinkware. Grab yourself cool champagne and cocktail glasses (plastic of course) with glistening gold features or opt for the fun approach with pineapple mugs or vibrant tropical themed colours and prints to jazz up your party.

spare towels

It’s always handy to have a few extra towels on standby for guests and lucky for you, towels are outdoor decorations on their own these days. Go all out with bright flamingo designs, bold fruity faves, or stick to a trusty nautical stripe design.
