Pool Ideas: Make a Splash with Poolside Holiday Gatherings

Thanksgiving is almost here, and soon the holidays will be in full swing. Holiday decorating is a fun tradition, and helps get into the peace and joy of the holiday season. As you decorate your home for the holidays and make it inviting with holiday cheer, you can be thinking about your pool space too. Even in the fall and winter, your pool space can still be enjoyable with fire pits, fire places and heaters, after all.

1. Poolside Hors d’oeuvres

If you don’t have an outdoor kitchen, it’s likely most convenient to have your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner indoors. But, having hors d’oeuvres poolside can be fun and entertaining. Invite guests outside by the pool to enjoy the crisp, fresh air as delectable finger food and drinks are served. Guests can stay warm with blankets, a fire or warm, comfy heaters.

2. Feast by the Pool

In warmer climates, or if you provide enough warmth by the pool in cooler climates, a holiday dinner by the pool will be a memorable experience. This works out well with an outdoor kitchen, or catering. With outdoor kitchens, you can cook and entertain simultaneously, and interact with guests.

3. Holiday Pool Parties

‘Tis the season for holiday parties. You can make your holiday party special by having it at your pool. Decorate your pool space with string of lights, Christmas trees, wreaths and holiday colors. Serve holiday themed drinks accented with candy canes or warm glasses of egg nog. Guests can receive a holiday blanket as a party favor to stay warm during the party. For those in warm climates or with heated pools, you can make a splash with pool games.

4. Post Dinner Cocktails or Coffee

If you enjoyed your Thanksgiving or Holiday dinner indoors, you can always have guests retreat to the pool area following dinner. Cap the night off with cocktails or coffee, or dessert, outside by the pool. If your pool is nicely lit and decorated, it will provide beautiful scenery for your guests.
