There’s no better way to enjoy time with your family and have some fun than relaxing by the pool. You can make it competitive by introducing some fun group games, like cornhole. Try colorful cornhole bags to make it festive! Arrange the colored cornhole bags in cool baskets as party decor (that keeps you organized).
Use chalkboards to keep score, make up clever team names, and award winners fun prizes and ribbons. You can find chalkboard paint at your local hardware store and easily paint any surface.
Stack up pretty towels and waterproof pillows so your guests are comfortable when they’re not competing in yard games! They’ll be able to catch some rays while they take a break. Stacks of magazines will keep them occupied, as well.
If they’ve worked up a sweat, you can keep them cool with a Southern treat – Coca Colas in glass bottles. Serve them with little bowls of peanuts so people can help themselves throughout the afternoon. Or if people are feeling very Southern, they can drop a few peanuts in their Coke for a fizzy treat. Organize it all on a cute tray.
Always make sure that everyone feels at home while visiting. Casual snacks and buckets of drinks filled with ice will make sure that no one goes home hungry. Be creative and use a planter as an ice bucket. It’ll look really cute, which is the half the fun of entertaining!
