Come summer and everyone wants to have their bit in the sun, getting themselves glorious tans and enjoying with their family and friends on sandy beaches. Another common phenomenon during the sweltering summer heat is the number of pool parties that are held by people. So, if you have a reason to celebrate this summer, having a pool party makes the most sense. The first step towards hosting a pool party is sending out the invites to all of your prospective guests. If you're the kind who likes to do everything with a little flourish, then homemade pool party invitations are just what you need to think of. This PartyJoys article has some ideas you can use.
Ideas for To Make Pool Party Invitations
A person gauges whether he should or should not attend a particular event, first by checking if he's free and then by the medium used to invite him to said event. Surely a phone call or a text message is enough to invite someone to a pool party, but if you want to truly impress your guests, make your own pool party invitations and send them out. The receivers will have no choice but to attend it!
Pool Toy Invites
You know what will be one of the coolest ways to invite someone to a pool party? Give them a little something to expect when they get there! A pool party means a lot of pool games and some serious mischief. Incorporate these games in the invitations that you send out. Get beach balls, inflate them and write down your invitation wordings all around the ball with a permanent marker. The invitee will surely carry it along with him. This way you'll have taken care of the entertainment part of the party too! Other options of toys that you can use to write down the invitation wordings are those adorable little rubber ducks, brightly colored frisbees, etc.
Pool Attire Invites
When organizing a pool party, you have to keep loads of things in mind. Like what to do with the wet clothes, how much laundry you'll have on your hands, how clean the place will be after the party is done, and how you can make your guests feel comfortable. Show your guests how serious you are about their comfort by using some really simple, yet innovative objects to invite them.
- T-shirts: Well, I didn't say it would come cheap, did I? If you have a lot of time on your hands, and enough resources, you can find out the T-shirt sizes of all your guests, get plain white T-shirts in those sizes and hand write the invitation on them. Alternatively, you can also get it printed on the tees. So, after all the fun and games, your guests can wear these T-shirts and enjoy the rest of the party!
- Sunglasses: Alright, here's a relatively inexpensive option you can try out. Get some really cheap sunglasses for all your guests and on the cases, write down the invitation wordings. Remember to tell the guests to carry their own sunglasses too, just in case these aren't very effective.
- Flip Flops: Another cool item to use as your pool party invitation is a pair of flip flops. Buy different pairs of flip flops, and write down the invitation wordings on single ones. Hand out single pieces to your guests and on the day of the party, ask them to find their 'pair' and have a dance with them!
- Towels: Don't worry! I don't mean that you need to buy a bath towel for each of your guests. But you can hand them all a pretty hand towel with the invitation wordings written on it, can't you? Roll it up nicely and tie it with a pretty ribbon when you send it out for that dash of elegance.
You can always stick to the traditional card invites too. Just make sure you use some really fancy shapes and embellishments to enhance the visual appeal of the invites. After all, the invitation is the first look that your guests will get at your party! Have a great party!
