The good news is, you don’t need an overabundance of items for a great pool party, and you can pick them up in one quick trip to Walmart.
Grab our 5 pool party planning essentials for an afternoon that’s focused on fun!
1. Refreshment Essentials
One of the first things our little guest always need are refreshments. We keep a good supply of iced drinks, snacks and fruits.
- Fill a cooler with ice, toss in your favorite drinks.
- Fill a large bowl with freshly cut fruits. We love bananas, strawberries, and watermelon!
2. Bathroom Essentials
With all of the added guests, you’ll need to stock up on more than just delicious treats. This is may be the last room you think of when inviting all of your kid’s friends over for a pool party. But it’s also the last place where you want to run out of essentials. Keep your bathroom stocked with Cottonelle Mega Roll to ensure an afternoon where no guest runs out of that oh-so-important party essential! This year, we stocked up with Cottonelle Mega Rolls to help avoid a mid-party trip to the store.

3. Pool Essentials
Toys and ridiculously awesome floats: Kids are great at using their imagination and having a lot of fun in the water without toys. But it’s fun to provide a few pool toys, pool noodles and a few floating rafts and balls.
Sunscreen Don’t forget your favorite sunblock! We keep a good supply on hand at all times during the warmer months. Make sure you have enough to go ’round and share generously.
4. Poolside Essentials
Towels: You can never have too many towels and adorable chairs. Keep a few extra on hand for guests that forget their towel at home, or for the one that gets thrown into the pool. Or, is that just at our house? The awesome thing about pool towels, you can usually find a great price on smaller swim towels and keep bonus on hand for party days.
5. Entertainment Essentials
Waterproof Speakers: Have you seen these? How fun! Grab a pair and turn up the volume for a little added ambiance to the laughter and chatter of your party.
