So, you just got a new vinyl pool installed and you want to show it off this year? Or maybe you’ve had it for some time, but it’s never too old to host a grand Fourth of July pool party! DMG Pool Builders has some fresh ideas for throwing the best pool party this holiday weekend. From the snacks to the pool activities, we have thought of it all. Let’s get this party started!
Fourth of July Pool Snacks
If you want to be festive with your snacks, you can make an American pie with blueberries and cranberries, and arrange the crust so that it outlines the flag. The same goes for an American flag salad made out of watermelon, blueberries, and feta cheese, and arrange the food in the form of the flag.
If you want simpler options, you can get red, white, and blue popsicles, patriotic cake pops, and chocolate-covered pretzels.
During the hot Texas summers, you need to have some cool, refreshing drinks for your guests. Especially during a Fourth of July celebration, drinks are very popular. But it’s not just about what you serve, but how you serve it. You can use a wheelbarrow, birdbath, kiddie pool, garden fountain, or a wagon to hold the drinks for your guests. All you have to do is fill them up with ice and place some sodas, beer, juices, wine, and bottled water to keep your guests refreshed.
Add some cool seating outdoors and make your Fourth of July pool party one to remember! If the weather permits, bring the indoors out and create a beautiful, luxurious lounge. You can bring out some comfy chairs, couches, rugs, and a coffee table. This is the perfect scenario for sipping cocktails while you watch the kids play around in the pool.
Add Some Spice to Your Vinyl Pool
You can turn your pool into a water feature by adding some sprinklers near the edges. The air will be filled with the soothing sounds of a fountain, and the kids will have a great time getting splashed with the sprinklers.
Don’t forget to add pool floats! Stay in spirit and add red, white, and blue floats to give your guests a way to relax.
Pool Party Games
Get yourself a giant ring toss, some pool basketball nets, or a volleyball net. Let’s make this Fourth of July pool party tough to beat!

Are you ready to beat the heat with an awesome Fourth of July pool party? This patriotic holiday is just around the corner, and it’s time to start planning for the epic summer event. Great music, refreshing snacks, and friendly water sports and activities are just a few of the things that will make your pool party one to remember. There is no better way to celebrate, than with your family and friends right in your backyard!
Decorate with Spirit
There are many ways to decorate your backyard with Independence Day theme colors. Blow up red, white, and blue balloons and throw them into your pool, or place them all over your outdoor space. Get creative with lounge popsicle pool floats and flag-themed donut floats for the guests that want to be carried away by smooth waves. Throw in a couple of color themed beach balls into the pool as well. You can even invest in some red or blue lights to keep the party alive throughout the night.
Snack and Drink Ideas to Refresh the Guests
Everything tastes better when it’s eaten or sipped beside a poolside. That being said, snacks and drinks are a pool party must! Any refreshment that is made with fruits is an excellent choice. For a fancy, but simple snack, watermelon feta salad is the way to go. If you want some protein options, deviled eggs are a summer staple. For something more traditional, Texas caviar is another favorite.
As for drinks, remember to have lots of water! This will keep your guests hydrated and happy. However, in order to entertain a majority of your guests, you will need more than just water. Make cucumber water and lemonade for the kids. As for the adults, cold beer and fruity mixed drinks will liven them up.
Activities and Pool Games
Entertainment is essential for the perfect pool party. There are many activities that will get everyone active, no matter the age. A cornhole set by the poolside will get some friendly competition started outside of the pool. Water balloons will keep little kids entertained for hours. You can install a pool volleyball net or a basketball hoop for those that want to test their athletic skills. Coin diving, giant Jenga, floatie races, chicken fight, and Marco Polo are other great activities to play. And remember to keep your guests motivated with popular music and celebration songs.
Pool Party Necessities
Sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in the fun, creative aspects of planning a Fourth of July pool party. However, safety is a top priority. Remember to provide lots of sunscreen to protect yourselves from the intense sun. Have shaded areas where your guests can cool off. Have extra flip flops and towels for guests that might forget theirs. And if you want to keep your house clean, provide a space where your guests can change out of their wet clothes.
