A couple of weeks ago, we hosted the Poolside Style event at Frontgate at Legacy West. The event was a blast and we enjoyed the whole afternoon – not to mention the beautiful Frontgate space! We were thrilled when Frontgate invited us to host the summer event. During the event we shared our tips for hosting a pool party. Since many of you aren’t from the Dallas area and couldn’t make it to the event, we’re sharing our tips below!
Tips For Hosting a Pool Party
Pick a theme
Picking a theme makes planning the rest of the party a breeze! If you decide to send invitations, either paper or electronic, send invitations that coordinate with your theme to set the mood in advance.
Keep food light and simple
Curate a Playlist
Extra, extra, extras
We’ve all been that guest who forgot something important. Be sure to set aside a sunscreen area and provide extra towels.
Use something other than fresh flowers for the centerpiece. That way you can prep early and not worry about putting flowers out last minute!
