Tips for Hosting an After-Dark Pool Party

Let’s face it — it’s officially sweltering in the Valley of the Sun! With these temperatures that are hot, hot, hot, the best way to cool down may be after the sun goes down! And there’s nothing wrong with a little party after dark. In fact, it can be a great way to mix things up this summer. Whether just “partying” with family or a small group this summer, Aquaman Pools offers some hot ways to host a cool after-dark pool party this summer.

Light it Up — Lighting is everything (anyone who has captured that perfect selfie will attest to this!). But when it comes to nighttime pool party, homeowners are definitely going to want to make sure the lighting outside is sufficient for safety reasons, yes, but also for ambiance! Twinkling lights in the trees and bushes, suspended across the lawn, on patio umbrellas or trellises can be a great way to light up the night while also setting the mood. For those with color-changing/LED pool lighting, this is another fun way to create ambiance. 

Let it Glow — Speaking of the mood of the night, after dark pool parties can be amped up with a good theme! And what better nighttime theme than glow in the dark?! Encourage guests to dress in their neon finest — and take it to the next level with glow in the dark face and body paint. This is a great one for the kids, but the adults are sure to get into the fun of it too! Beyond attire, there are countless ways to add a glowing element to an after-dark party. Glowing tubes or beach balls, light up pool toys and more will get this party glowing!

Get in the Game — Light up yard games can also ignite an after-dark pool party! A quick Google search can lead homeowners to fun items like flashlight flying discs for a game of Frisbee, lighted bocce sets and even giant glowing blocks for a round of Jenga.

Pool parties and get togethers are fun any time, but adding an after-dark element definitely puts a new spin on a time honored summer tradition. Aquaman Pools invites pool owners to give them a call before any gathering to ensure the pool is healthy, safe and sparkling clean for family and party guests.
