pool party

If you have a pool, then you have the perfect setting for a “pool party!”  When I was in my teens, my parents put in an in ground swimming pool and suddenly our home became the party spot or gathering place for family and friends.  I have fond memories of making fresh fruit salads, ice tea and our yellow and white pool furniture.  

Do not despair, if you do not have a pool, think of a small blow-up inflatable pool for a children’s party.  Serve ice pops, lemonade and fresh watermelon.  Turn on the sprinkler and let the kids have some fun.  Add hoola-hoops, water balloons and you will surely see smiles.  Even grown-ups will want to run through the sprinkler!
