Any pool bash you host for relatives and friends will be better if you follow these preparation tips. Establish an entertaining party theme to set your gathering’s mood and guide your invitation, decoration, music, and refreshment choices. Letting your unique décor inspire your Swimsuits Direct purchases will help you celebrate summer in style. Search our two-piece swimsuits for looks from bikinis to tankinis. If you prefer one-piece bathing suits, you’ll find silhouettes from bandeaus to swim dresses.
Flamingo: Decorate with these lovely feathered creatures to add bursts of pink throughout your outdoor surroundings. Adorn your pool with floats featuring these graceful birds. Pink flamingo yard ornaments will look festive. Develop a music playlist of romantic oldies. Guests can enjoy refreshing raspberry lemonade or strawberry margaritas with plastic flamingo swizzle sticks. In the heat, serve light fare like salads with color-coordinated radishes. Watermelon and strawberries make pretty desserts.
Encourage guests to dress in pastel to bright shades, pinkish ideally. You’ll find a range of rosy variations in Swimsuits Direct’s vast solid and print collection. Other complementary tones will fit into your sweet color scheme. Plunging tops and high-cut bottoms will let you strut and pose like flamingos with long necks and legs. If you prefer fuller coverage, anything cute and girly will do.
Las Vegas: Transform your backyard into the famous pool party locale of Las Vegas. Use a playing-card-themed color palette of white, red, and black. Hints of green and gold can symbolize winnings. Boost the realistic Sin City feel with poker chip and dice decorations. Vintage Frank Sinatra songs will create the perfect tone. Set up a bar and gaming tables so guests can enjoy martinis or traditional highballs during poker.
Everyone will relish wearing your casino colors. Shop Swimsuits Direct for white, red, and black solid and patterned bathing suits. Or embrace your inner showgirl by flaunting sexy styles with feminine yet glitzy nightclub touches like flounces, ruffles, fringe, or push-up cups.
Tropical: Turn your outdoor space into a tropical paradise with Caribbean and/or Hawaiian elements like inflatable palm trees. Toss colorful blow-up parrots, tropical fish, and floats in your pool. Reggae music will get everyone in the party mood. Embellish tables with begonia, dahlia, or hibiscus floral displays. A tiki bar is the ideal place to pour legendary island drinks including piña coladas, passionfruit mojitos, and rum punch. Serve jerk chicken, spicy shrimp, and/or pineapple pork chops.
Casual shirts and bathing suits with colorful tropical prints are always in style, so most people should be able to match their attire to this popular theme. For something new, shop Swimsuits Direct for floral and leafy patterns in bright hues to earth tones. Anything with a summer getaway flair that motivates island hopping to rediscover nature will be fitting.
Beach: Bring a coastal feel into your backyard with sand, beach balls, blow-up palm trees, lounge chairs, and beach-style signage. Using a color scheme of blue and sandy shades and cranking up the Beach Boys will create a laidback vibe. Decorate tables with typical finds like seashells, starfish, and pearls. Serve beverages like blue Hawaiians, ocean breezes, and beachcombers from a rustic beach bar or cabana. Expanding your seafood menu with other basics will please everyone.
Suggest that guests sport blue and green variations to evoke ocean waves. Swimsuits Direct is overflowing with water-inspired shades and motifs. Some prints give the illusion of shimmering seas. Or you may prefer timeless nautical looks with stripes or color blocking. Baywatch-style maillots offer even more possibilities. Imitate a swimwear model by changing into a new favorite every hour.
