If you want to celebrate Memorial Day, what better way than a pool party? Officially recognized as a federal holiday to celebrate military veterans, Memorial Day has also unofficially become the weekend to kick off summer with a bang. Using the long weekend to open up your pool to family and friends is an ideal way to celebrate veterans and this country they sacrifice so much for.
If your pool party is one for the entire family, make sure you have plenty of patriotic pool toys so the kids can keep busy. Make popsicles ahead of time with real summertime fruit like strawberries and blueberries for a cooling afternoon treat for kids and grownups alike. If you have an outdoor grill, Memorial Day in Lafayette, LA is the perfect day to grill up a scrumptious dinner of chicken, ribs, or steak. If you have a fire-pit, make s’mores with the kids after the pool is closed for the day and then send everyone home full and happy. If you don’t have a fire-pit, set up an ice cream sundae bar and let everyone dig in and customize their ice cream with a variety of toppings like patriotic red, white, and blue sprinkles, or crushed up cookies. Whipped cream and a variety of sauces are sure to delight.
If you want your Memorial Day pool party in Lafayette, LA to be one for adults, think along the lines of patriotic poolside cocktails, boozy fruit popsicles, and fun pool games even adults will love. Whether your pool party is full of fun and games, or you and your guests plan to lounge around the pool soaking up the sun on comfortable outdoor furniture, your Memorial Day pool party is sure to be a hit.
